Spectacular Reception hall arrangement by dolche e
gabana. Bristol Paris

Legendary iconic hotel, in the heart of the fashion, design, and art district. Hôtel Le Bristol opened in 1925. Owned by the Oetker family, who also own among others,Hotel du Cap Eden Roc, Chateau Saint-Martin,and Brenners Park, the hotel clearly reflects a family vibe. Managed by Leah Marshall the hotel brings a freshness and energy not often seen in a royal, palace hotel. Staff are all happy and the welcome is from the ear. No wonder the client return rate is around 63%. They sincerely make you feel at home. No stuffiness here. Rooms are large, bright and comfortable.

Paris- a pleasure in the winter!!

Top of my sightseeing list- Saint Chapelle.


No lines at museums, no crowds on the streets, easy dinner reservations! What a delightful time to visit Paris! Sales are running in all the shops! Prepare to dress warmly, inside it is cosy and warm. Our visit was impeccably planned by London based Noteworthy and Oetker Collection.

Polar Bear Adventure -Polar Rovers and Dog Sledding

Polar Rover – viewing polar bears safely


I am amazed at the scope and superior caliber of Natural Habitat Adventures. Among other things, they supplied our parkas, boots, charter to Churchill, and our viewing vehicles: polar rovers. The rovers were comfortable, roomy, and afforded us amazing up close and personal views of polar bears, foxes, birds. We were blessed with the ultimate guide, Justin Gordon, who regaled us with the area history and in depth lectures on the local wildlife. This has been one of the best educationals I have ever had the privilege of attending.
If you have a chance to travel with Nat Hab, jump on it!

Polar Bear Adventure – first stop Winnipeg

Reception Hall Fort Garry Hotel

Winnipeg was founded in the late 1700’s as a fur trading outpost. The city’s name came from nearby lake Winnipeg, a Cree word meaning muddy water. The Hudson Bay company settled there in the early 1800’s and established several forts-the last one being Fort Garry. Winnipeg was a railway hub and considered a major trading center,until the Panama Canal redirected trade. The train station was designed by the architect of New York’s Grand Central Station. We fly North by charter to Churchill, Manitoba. Churchill is on the Hudson Bsy. The major tribes in the Churchill area of were the Cree, Sayisi Dene, the Inuit and Metis.
Natural Habitat Adventures has set up headquarters at the hotel and there is where we pick up our heavy boots and Parkas
