‘Today’ Stars join Scenic Tours to broadcast live from Canada


On Monday, Karl Stefanovic, Lisa Wilkinson, Richard Wilkins, Richard Reid and Georgie Gardner will broadcast from the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in the heart of Banff National Park. This episode kicks off the weeklong TODAY ‘Live in Canada’ tour, which continues until 5 July 2013. The TODAY team will enjoy some of the exceptional experiences that guests may relish on a Scenic Tours 5-star all-inclusive tour of Canada. Highlights of day one include: • Lisa and Karl enjoying a traditional Canadian breakfast before Lisa takes to the waters of Lake Louise by canoe; • Georgie Gardener taking a thrilling Scenic FreeChoice helicopter flight over the magnificent Rocky Mountains; and • Christine Ahern checking in from the Athabasca Glacier on the Columbia Icefields. Plus, the team will discover the authentic tastes of a Rockies barbeque and be entertained by the Calgary Fiddlers. Over on the Eastern side of the country, weather presenter, Steve Jacobs will be broadcasting from Fairmont’s sister property, Le Château Frontenac, nestled in the heart of Québec City’s World Heritage-listed Old Town. He will dine on traditional Que´be´cois fare at a Scenic Enrich sugar shack dinner, learn to make the local delicacy, poutine; and showcase the sights of the French Canadian city’s Old Town by night.
