Tundra Buggy Lodge

Not your typical Arctic lodge, this unique property offers an immersive experience to get an up-close look at polar bears and see the Aurora Borealis.

The Tundra Buggy Lodge is parked out on the open tundra at Polar Bear Point inside the Churchill Wildlife Management Area.

During the polar bear season in October and November, you’ll see bears outside the window day and night.

February and March are the prime months to see the Northern Lights. The lodge has panoramic windows and skylights for those who prefer to stay cozy inside. Those ready to brave the cold can bundle up and head outside or even up onto the rooftop observation deck.

Wander the World Without Worry

If you’re reading this email, my guess is you’re not an ordinary traveler. You love venturing off the trail and journeying deep into the hidden corners of the world.

For an adventure junkie like you, ordinary travel insurance just won’t cut it. Those plans are designed for weekends in Paris, not for kayaking in Antarctica.

Most importantly, they don’t cover rescue and a medical evacuation can cost up to $300,000.

So, who will come for you if you ever need to press the red button?

If you’re unsure, plan for the unexpected with Global Rescue, the company  pioneered worldwide field rescue.

What exactly is a field rescue? That means they will come to get you  by any means necessary.

We’re talking about helicopters, jets, 4X4 vehicles, rescue teams on  foot — whatever it takes to get you back home alive.




Omote Ginza Trail

Japan. It’s a place that conjures thoughts of fresh tuna nigiri, bustling megacities, polite people, and ancient temples.

But do you know Japan’s more rugged and adventurous side? A place of mountain huts, pristine rivers, and forests?

One of the best ways to experience this wild side of Japan is the Omote Ginza Trail.

This route takes hikers on a 4-day trek across the ridges of the Japanese Alps, via Mt Tsubakuro, Mt Otensho, and the ultimate summit, Mt Yarigatake standing at 10,400 feet (3180 meters).

World history is full of secret clubs with elite members. Shrouded in mystery, these clubs become the stuff of legend.

In a lavish Upper Manhattan townhouse lies the headquarters of a legendary, though far less secretive society — The Explorers Club.
