[dropcap size=small]F[/dropcap]or travelers with generous travel budgets, flexible schedules and a streak of adventure, Four Seasons has created a new pair of itineraries aboard their private jet, which takes the planning out of traveling.
Excursions, meals, transportation and accommodation all pre-arranged.
For US$135,000 (S$187,000) per couple, guests can sign up for Timeless Encounters, a three-week, four-continent trip that includes seaplane rides over Sydney; white water rafting in Bali; temple visits in Chiang Mai, and underwater explorations in Bora Bora. The journey is scheduled for March 1 to 24, 2018.
The itinerary for World of Adventures, meanwhile, features stops in Kyoto, Bali, Seychelles, Rwanda, Marrakech, Bogota and the Galapagos Islands.
In Kyoto, guests will visit Kikaku-ji, a famed bamboo jungle, and study the art of samurai sword-fighting.
Along with relaxing on the beaches of Bali and the Seychelles, the itinerary also includes jungle treks in Rwanda, where they will follow in the footsteps of Dian Fossey who famously studied mountain gorillas.
The journey continues to Bogota, Colombia, to highlight the city’s emerging art, design and gastronomy, before stopping in the Galapagos Islands, where guests can swim alongside sea lions and snorkel with manta rays.
World of Adventures is programmed for Oct. 19 to Nov. 11, 2018 and begins at US$138,000 (S$191,000) per double occupancy.
The Four Seasons isn’t the only luxury hotel brand to offer around-the-world trips aboard a private jet.
This summer, Crystal launches their inaugural AirCruise in partnership with The Peninsula hotel brand, in an around-the-world journey that stops off at 10 of the world’s most glamorous cities.
The US$159,000 (S$220,000) itinerary includes a private dinner on the Great Wall of China, and a trip to Champagne, for a bubbly-soaked luncheon in France.
