Where in the world should we go… How about Canada?

With the Canadian dollar at such a low rate, more organizations are considering keeping their conferences and incentive programs within Canada for the next two years. By doing this, you can either save 25% on your overall budget, or put 25% more into your program content.

The next question is where can you go that will continue to inspire and motivate your participants, even in the dead of winter. Traditionally the first places that come to mind are resort destinations – Whistler, Banff, Mt. Tremblant.

Instead of going to the well-known spots, we have a better idea. What about venturing to some more unique destination within our great country? Somewhere in Canada you likely have never been to, or even heard of before. Introducing the Hotel La Ferme located in Le Massif de Charlevoix! Le Massif de Charlevoix is a tourism and recreation destination, and the brainchild of Daniel Gaulthier, one of the founders of Le Cirque du Soleil.

With 135 guestrooms, each offering an exclusive and contemporary feel, Hotel La Ferme has won countless awards, with Conde Nast Traveller ranking it among the 154 Top New Hotels in the World. The green attitude of La Ferme is refreshing with all of the buildings being heated with geothermal energy, and pretty much everything inside its walls are sourced from within a 100 km radius, be it the décor, toiletries, furniture and even the restaurant food.

What makes this location even more special is the mode of transfer from Quebec City. The experience will start immediately as guests board the Charlevoix Light Rail Transit – a 2-car train, that seats up to 120 people – also owned by the hotel company.

The train pulls up right outside the hotel, and has 3 departures a day from Quebec City.

With multiple restaurants, 40’ ceiling heights in the meeting space, a renowned spa and outdoor hot pool to unwind in, and great outdoor activities including sled runs, snowshoeing, skiing, bonfires, etc., the destination less travelled, could be your best decision this year!
