Auto News: Volkswagen Offers Exclusive Vaction Packages to MOAB
Volkswagen of America, Inc. - June 27, 2007
Join Volkswagen in Moab, Utah and experience first hand the unique capabilities of the Volkswagen Touareg sport utility vehicle in a professionally guided, off-road adventure through some of America's most ruggedly beautiful landscapes.
Volkswagen is presently taking reservations for TouaregAdventure, a three-day, off-roading excursion through picturesque canyons and challenging terrains. The weekend packages run July, 2007 through the end of October, 2007. Participants do not need to be experienced off-road drivers as experienced guides will coach guests through the challenging Moab terrain.
TouaregAdventure is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to learn how to safely navigate the wilds of Moab, in the luxury of the award winning Volkswagen Touareg. Where you never thought a vehicle could go, the Touareg deftly takes you, tantalizing the senses with dramatic views of the Colorado River and its famous red rock cliffs.
This experience matches the distinctive dual nature of Volkswagen's premium SUV: mountain goat prowess in the backcountry, with the refined manners of a sports sedan on pavement.
"It's our goal to introduce our special guests to one of the country's most gorgeous natural environments, in the comfortable confines of our new Touareg," said Steve Keyes, general manager public relations, Volkswagen of America. "At the conclusion of our program, we're confident that our guests will have had a wonderful time, with a new confidence in their off-road driving skills and the capabilities of our SUV."
The TouaregAdventure is led by two professional Moab guides, Program Director J.B. Reynolds and TouaregAdventure Head Guide Dan Mick. These two off-roading experts will lead the session group through some of Moab's most popular trails, demonstrating the safest way to navigate confidently in each Touareg. After participants leave, they will have been taught how to navigate the many off-road challenges they will face.
During the trip, guests will stay at Touareg Headquarters, in the critically-acclaimed Sorrel River Ranch and Spa. The resort has been named one of Southwest America's top destinations, offering guests the finest in gourmet dinners and assorted wines.
Vacation packages for the TouaregAdventure are $2,000 per participant, not including airfare to either Grand Junction, Colorado or Canyonlands Field, Utah airports.
For each reservation, the package includes: an advance welcome kit, single occupancy resort lodging and meals at Sorrel River Ranch, wine with dinner and drinks from the bar, airport shuttles to and from Grand Junction, Colo., or Canyonlands Field, Moab, Utah, and up to three days of guided, off-road adventure. Special pricing and accommodations may be available if sharing a room or for a companion to join us at mealtimes only.
