Social Distance Friendly Experience Gifts with Giveaway

What an odd year!

This year has been like no other I have ever experienced.   Sadly, Christmas is looking a bit different as well. I would love to see my oldest daughter, my dad and my sis. But with them being out of the province it is not happening. With government restrictions and recommendations, staying local is best for all! Hopefully we can all make sacrifices now so we can get back to life as normal soon.

I have always loved gifting experience gifts to my family. This year they still can enjoy many of the experiences locally and safely. Breakaway Experiences has fun experiences all across the country that you can do on your own or in your bubble.

Safety is a priority for Breakaway Experiences

  • COVID-19 has made this a very challenging year for most of the experiences providers we are partnered with but they have worked hard and been innovative in adapting their experiences to be as safe as possible for both the public and their employees.
  • We’ve added the safety steps the experiences providers have adapted to the our tour pages to add some reassurance and comfort when you are buying a fun experience for someone special or for yourself to get out and about.
  • The experience that are open and available are experiences that do not involve crowding together. Each company has adapted their activities to keep people as distanced as much as possible. Often tours and activities are limited to your covid bubble within the immediate area, along with staff sanitizing and being vetted daily for symptoms.

Below are a few experiences that you can gift this holiday season.
