Escape the Big Apple for a picturesque drive along the winding roads of Upstate New York during one of the first BMW i Pure Impulse scenic drive events in 2019.

Only a leisurely two-hour drive from bustling Manhattan lies Amenia, a relaxed small town that has recently been experiencing a revival, and which will be the starting point for our drive.

A former mining site turned summer camp destination, the town was deserted when a burst dam turned it into wetlands half a century ago – but recently, the area was rediscovered by city dwellers longing for a weekend escape to the country.

You will be staying at the historical Design Hotels™ – Troutbeck hotel, which has been a country inn for over 250 years and which has been completely re-developed – and now provides a relaxing sanctuary for those longing to leave behind the big city life for a while.

Our scenic drive will take you along tree-lined country roads, past pristine lakes and cute towns with wood-clad houses. Enjoy the sight of the local wildlife while you drive your BMW i8 across the border into Connecticut.

Our lunch spot will be nothing short of spectacular – Arethusa Farm, set on the low rolling hills of Litchfield, Connecticut, is unlike any other dairy farm you have ever seen.

Co-owned by the two men who are behind the Manolo Blahnik shoe empire, made world-famous by the TV show Sex and the City, the farm’s pristine clean barns house happy cows who have their tails shampooed and are treated like royalty – and in turn reward their owners with deliciously creamy milk “like it used to taste”.

Join us for this special weekend event, that celebrates all the best things that life has to offer – delicious food, beautiful scenery, a raft of fun activities and the opportunity to enjoy some relaxing time in the company of your fellow BMW i Pure Impulse members.

  • Two nights’ accommodation at Design Hotels™ – Troutbeck hotel, including breakfast for one BMW i Pure Impulse member and accompanying guest
