At selected Four Seasons resorts, lovers of the great outdoors are invited to explore it all in style, thanks to a new program created in partnership with Mercedes-Benz USA.
A fleet of Mercedes-Benz vehicles is now available for exclusive use by guests of Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North in Arizona's Sonoran Desert, and Four Seasons Resort Vail, in the heart of Vail Valley, Colorado. The cars and SUVs are available* on a first-come, first-serve basis - gas included - compliments of Mercedes-Benz and Four Seasons.
The possibilities for year-round fun and adventure are endless – a photo safari with a trained biologist, hunting for mushrooms, stargazing on Pinnacle Peak, stopping for a lavish brook-side picnic, all combined with the unmatched rush of hitting the open road in a superb vehicle. The expert concierge teams at Four Seasons can put together unique itineraries to suit any interest, and provide all the maps and gear one might need, from binoculars to cold drinks to sip along the way.
In celebration of this new program, each resort has put together a very special experience that gives new meaning to the idea of "roughing it" in the wilderness.
• Suite Spin - At Four Seasons Resort Vail, guests booking the Suite Spin package are guaranteed use of a Mercedes-Benz ML350 or GL450 for their stay, which also includes a gourmet picnic lunch that can be enjoyed on a scenic mountain overlook. In season, the Resort also offers mushroom hunting treks with a local forager, complete with creek-chilled white wine to toast the day's bounty, which will be enjoyed during a special fungus-focused dinner that evening.
• Open Road - How about driving to a sleepy desert town or up cactus-covered mountains? With the new Open Road package, Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale hands over the keys to a Mercedes-Benz E350 Cabriolet and sends guests on a journey to explore the region's magnificent red rock formations, breathe in pine-scented air, and even sample locally-produced olive oils.
• Wildlife Safari Tour - Urbanites will love having Tenley Thompson, on-staff wildlife biologist at Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, as their personal guide on a Wildlife Safari Tour in a Mercedes-Benz GL450. Tenley knows the best times and places to catch glimpses of elk, moose, antelope or even grizzlies and wolves, and as an accomplished photographer, can advise on capturing all the memories.
