(Family Features) Traditional getaways may seem like a thing of the past due to travel restrictions and safety concerns, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Many people are considering ways to create new experiences, take in landscapes and make memories with friends and family, and are looking for options.
The maker of Sea-Doo personal watercraft, Ski-Doo snowmobiles and Can-Am on- and off-road vehicles, BRP, launched Uncharted Society, a collaboration bringing together its lineup of powersports vehicles with leading adventure providers across North America. This partnership provides people an opportunity to get out of their quarantine-induced funks by exploring nature with friends and family and trying something new.
Professionally curated, the adventures vary from action-packed, one-day rides to multi-day, fully guided, off-the-grid, all-inclusive escapes. All vehicles are provided and no previous riding experience is needed. All you have to do is show up and make memories, all while respecting social distancing guidelines and health precautions.
With options for every season across varying terrain, from exploring hard-to-reach places accessible only to off-road vehicles, to scenic highway rides, to fishing from a personal watercraft or hitting the mountains on a snowmobile, there’s something for nearly everyone.
