Catching Up — Wilderness North

Celebrating 30 Years of Wilderness North  –          

Catching Up

Alan CheesemanWell, the lodges, camps, and cabins are all closed. Winter is breathing down our necks, and the world economy sure looks a lot different than it did just a month ago. So let’s catch up.

Again in 2009, we are offering our Reel Deal promotion. Guests who book now, and pay in full by cheque before December 10, 2008, will receive a 10% savings off the rates published on the website. Wilderness North fly in fishingHowever, it doesn’t stop there. You will recall that our prices are in Canadian dollars, and today the American dollar has a 20% margin over Canadian currency. In addition, we know that gasoline prices have dropped as much as a dollar a gallon.

When you do the math, a $1045 (Can$) outpost cabin trip, is now available for about $732 (US$), taking into consideration both the Reel Deal, and currency exchange rate savings. Economists tell us the exchange rate advantage to the American dollar may not last long, so now is a perfect time to book and save. You may send us an e-mail to learn all the details on dates, available destinations, and prices by clicking here or you may call us at 1-888-465-3474.
