The Josie Hotel is celebrating its first summer with a curated collection of packages geared toward warm-weather wanderers. Located within the Kootenay Rockies region, western Canada’s burgeoning holiday destination, and perfectly placed along the Kootenay Golf Trail, the new boutique hotel is an adventure epicentre, offering easy access to a variety of activities suited for adventurers of all ages and interests.
Situated mere minutes from Redstone Resort – which offers spectacular scenery and a championship-level course, attracting golfers from around the region – The Josie is an ideal home base from which to hit the links and explore the region’s treasure chest of nature-focused activities. Hikers, mountain bikers, and trail runners will gravitate to the Kootenay’s seemingly endless network of backcountry trails, while those who prefer to hit the water can enjoy whitewater rafting, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding as well as world-class fly fishing. Those seeking a soul-searching sojourn may wish to experience a private or group yoga class, or opt to mindfully meditate over a patio cocktail at The Josie’s on-site eatery, The Velvet Restaurant & Lounge.
Of course, summer holidays are all about ease – and that’s why The Josie has crafted a number of packages that allow guests to design the trip of their dreams with the click of a button. Bike aficionado? The Bike the Seven Summits package is for you: the package includes shuttle transportation to the renowned Seven Summits Trail, where you can hop on two wheels and pedal the scenic 35km route; after returning to The Josie, adjourn to the patio and enjoy two well-earned drinks on the house.
Roadtrippers zipping through the Kootenays are perfect candidates for the Feast ‘n’ Snooze package: in addition to luxe accommodation, guests enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner for two, with a $40 dining credit, and can add optional outdoor activities to their stay, courtesy of GET LOST Adventure Centre.
ravellers journeying with their entire clan can select Stay & Play, which allows visitors to choose from classic Kootenay experiences like 18-hole golf at Redstone Resort, an exhilarating whitewater rafting excursion or a mountain biking experience; guests who book this package can also request an in-suite pop-up tent complete with s’mores so little ones can indulge in the joys of camping, resort-style.
Golf enthusiasts will want to swing into summer with the Kootenay Golf Package, which offers three rounds of 18-holes for the price of two at one of four spectacular Kootenay region courses.
“We are so excited to share all the Kootenay region has to offer with The Josie’s all-encompassing collection of summer adventure packages,” said Jesse Crocket, general manager of The Josie. “The Kootenays is one of the best places in Canada to experience all that our natural backyard has to offer, and we hope these packages will encourage visitors around the world to choose this magical region as their must-visit summer holiday destination.”
