Vancouver-based Telio plans trips that combine out-there adventures with stays at the country’s top wilderness lodges, including Newfoundland’s Fogo Island Inn and Nimmo Bay Resort in British Columbia. “My passion is making Canada’s vast and remote wilderness accessible to guests,” he says. He’s especially enthusiastic about working with First Nations leaders to identify responsible tourism opportunities within their communities. Telio has noticed an increased demand in travel to the Arctic and Sub-Arctic regions of Canada and Alaska, particularly among large groups and families. “I find that our guests want to splurge on privacy and remoteness above all,” he says. A few of the more unique experiences he’s planned for his clients include a private picnic on top of a glacier, a whale-watching kayaking expedition, and an ATV adventure on an uninhabited island in the Arctic. It seems no request is too lavish: Recently, he planned a spare-no-expenses getaway to western Canada, complete with luxury cars and five-star hotels, for a Dutch traveler and 18 of his friends.
