The Loden Hotel has partnered with experts at the popular Vancouver cycling-themed Musette Caffè to launch WanderFIT, a new initiative to inspire fitness through outdoor exploration. Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, the Loden Hotel invites guests to explore nature without compromising on urban luxuries.

The first of its kind in Vancouver, the WanderFIT program introduces a collaboration between the luxury boutique hotel and a team of cycling and hiking experts, giving guests an active and authentic way to experience the lifestyle and natural beauty of the West Coast. The downtown core is positioned at nature’s doorstep with the shimmering ocean surrounding three sides and the majestic North Shore Mountains crowning the city. This provides Loden guests access to a vast array of routes and trails that will elevate their fitness routines. “We are finding that travelers seek authentic experiences that are locally-inspired, and guests are placing greater emphasis on maintaining their personal fitness routines while away from home. WanderFIT is ideal for our guests to achieve both of these goals,” says Wesley Joe, General Manager of the Loden Hotel. “For several years the Loden has placed priority on the wellness of our guests. We view WanderFIT as a natural extension of our incredible BeFit gym, however in an outdoor setting we believe to be one of the most beautiful places on earth.”

WanderFIT rides and hikes are custom-crafted and guided by Musette Caffè’s experts, including experienced cyclists and trail runners, and Thomas Eleizegui, Musette Caffè owner-operator. As a private guided experience available for novice to elite athletes, each tour is customized to the guest’s experience levels, desired duration and intensity level, and fitness goals. The Loden is launching the initiative with four packages and the option to customize add-ons for any hotel experience.

All packages include luxury accommodation, a privately guided and customized ride or hike, pre-workout snack with the guide, use of top-of-the-line cycling or hiking equipment, and nutritious fuel throughout the trip. Packages are available beginning May 1, 2016 and start at $457 per night for WanderFIT Trek, and $537 for WanderFIT Cycle.
