Radisson HECLA OASIS RESORT – FAM TOUR 2009
Today the Events by Emma Team (Emma Singh, Dannie Singh, Kim ten Krooden and Sacha Bouchard) had great day touring and visiting the Radisson Hecla Oasis Resort (Spa, Conference, Event and Golf Centre). We had a wonderful two hour bus ride to the facilities with treats and interesting and informative games to keep us busy. Once at the Resort we attended a site tour and had a chance to see the amazing and unique setting that hosts amazing and state of the art rooms and suites, a mineral spa, water park, hydrotherapy pools, casual dining and a five star fine dining experience.
After the tour we had a fantastic lunch which included hand-made gourmet pizza’s. Once full …. they sent us out again to enjoy the facility with half of the group heading out to enjoy 9 holes of golf at the Hecla Golf Course and the other half attending a Eco-Tour of Hecla Island.
Our team choose the hike and Eco-Tour and thanks to our great guide Dr. Heather Hinam who is the guide on most trips and programs at the Resort. (She brings a passion for teaching and over 10 years of guiding experience to compliment her Ph.D. in ecology. A seasonal resident of the Hecla-Grindstone area for the last thirty years, she is an expert in the natural history and behavior of boreal birds and mammals). We learned a lot and got to see some truly beautiful things … highlights for me included the garter snakes, white pelicans and the lighthouses. We also strolled over to check out the camping sites and cabins located close by (so we could plan our summer camping trips!). We ended the day with drinks on the patio and a tired group jumped back on the bus for a relaxing trip back to the city.
A special thanks to Sherri and Linda from the Radisson for their hospitality and invitation to attend this year’s tour.
We can’t wait to bring our first clients out! We highly recommend this facility to all of our clients. Whether you are planning a corporate retreat, conference, wedding or intimate function this is the place to be. Check out http://www.heclaoasis.com for more information and details.
