Epic Southern California Adventure: Desert, Mountains and Ocean

Epic Southern California Adventure: Desert, Mountains and Ocean
An exclusive, three-part excursion for adrenaline junkies (and those with limited time), the SoCal Trifecta Adventure invites travelers to check into Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows' three-bedroom suite, Bungalow One, before a whirlwind day of exploring the deserts, mountains and islands of Southern California within a single day of adventure.

Departing at sunrise, a private breakfast flight leads to a morning spent climbing the walls of Joshua Tree National Park's granite domes. Guests are then whisked away by private jet to mountain bike or ski down the scenic pine-tree-lined slopes of Big Bear Lake. Next, guests fly to Catalina Airport where a helicopter ride takes them to a private boat on the harbor of this gorgeous island for an afternoon of swimming, snorkeling and stand-up paddle boarding followed by a private dinner and cocktails on deck at sunset.
