Kattuk and Muir Hotel Halifax team up to bring guests to Sable Island NPR this winter.

An Extraordinary Expedition: Muir + Sable Island National Park Reserve

Muir launches an exclusive journey exploring one of the most secluded places in the world

HALIFAX, NS, Nov. 23, 2022 /CNW/ - Muir hotel launches an Extraordinary Expedition inspired by the region's raw, physical beauty and enduring character, transporting guests to one of the most secluded places in the world.

The 5-day expedition includes exclusive access to people and places through

out Nova Scotia with luxury accommodations at Muir. From snow-covered wineries and historic forts to Sable Island National Park Reserve, an isolated island of sand-dunes, the world's largest breeding colony of grey seals and over 500 wild horses. One of Canada's furthest offshore islands, access to Sable Island NPR is extremely limited with only a handful of tours permitted to visit each year.

Muir has partnered with Kattuk Expeditions to offer three tours scheduled for January and February of 2023. Fred Stillman, owner of Kattuk Expeditions, will personally lead the guests on a full-day tour of this windswept island.

"300 kilometers off the coast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and at the edge of the continental shelf lies a lonely bar of sand shaped by wind and ocean currents" explains Stillman. "Far away from any modern amenities and services, in the exposed open Atlantic Ocean with the Gulf Stream and Labrador currents nearby, this is the wild of wild, so remote and extreme, yet positively beautiful and gentle. This expedition is for those who seek wild reality and remoteness, to be immersed in an environment that functions entirely on its own and to visit it with just a handful of others. It is a place unlike any other in the world."

The Extraordinary Expedition is influenced by our proximity to and reliance on the sea. Meet with a local winemaker to learn how the highest tides in the world contribute to an award-winning terroir. Indulge in an in-room spa experience inspired by the sights, sounds, smells, and materiality of the ocean. Gain unique insight into the region through meals that reflect a contemporary expression of our shared culinary heritage. End each day in an executive suite, a soothing haven of quiet luxury with immediate views of the Atlantic Ocean.
