The Adventure

The Facebook drool tool - a summer adventure with CMH

Posted by Topher Donahue on Thu, May 17, 2012

If sharing your experiences online is part of your holiday, there is nothing quite like CMH Summer Adventures to get your social network drooling on their smartphones.  In three days with CMH you can share photos and experiences from a zipline across a raging river, a via ferrata along a knife-edge ridge, a glacier trek over ancient ice, hiking on the alpine tundra, and a comfortable, photogenic lodge deep within the Canadian wilderness.  Capturing the attention of your friends is virtually assured.

Compare this to a cruise, where you are sharing an experience that everyone is familiar with;  you post some photos of the boat, the ocean, the accommodations, some islands - and your friends, regardless if they've ever been on a cruise or not, will say, “...seen that before.”

During a CMH Summer Adventure, you’ll have the opportunity to share experiences that are as visually stunning and unique as an expedition to Mount Everest - but everyman's version with posh accommodations, a helicopter to help you spend the day in the most beautiful part of the mountains, and just the right amount of physical exertion tailored to your fitness level and desire.

The CMH Lodges, while remote, are equipped with internet access, so daily updates are easy.  After a soak in the hot tub, taking in the view of the famous Bugaboo Spires, you can upload photos and stories from you day’s adventures and share with your world an experience that most people don’t realize even exists.

There is something authentic about the social media that comes from high quality experiential travel destinations.  And CMH, with 47 years of experience in providing world-class adventure travel experiences, is as authentic as it gets.

At the end of the trip, you’ll have a collection of photographs and experiences with value that rivals half a dozen typical holiday trips, you’ll blow away your family and friends while you share the experience online, and you’ll return home with a full reboot of the most important thing: your self.
