If you’ve ever dreamt of exploring the world in one epic go, February 5, 2018 is your best shot. The New York Times and travel company Abercrombie & Kent (no, not Fitch), have teamed up to launch a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly to some of the world's most underrated destinations, and all in a private jet.
Sounds awesome, right? Even better, guests will be accompanied by four award-winning New York Times journalists, who carry expertise in the countries on the itinerary. Covering 26 days and 25 nights, the ultimate culture experience kicks off with a tour of The New York Times office in NYC, and then a custom Boeing 757 will load up passengers and take them off to the likes of Cuba, Colombia, Polynesian Easter Island, a brief stop in Samoa, down to Australia, Myanmar, Iran, Morocco, and lastly the gorgeous Nordic nation of Iceland.
Damn, that’s quite a mouthful of places.
Of course, traveling to all these unique countries with a personal tour guide/journalist will come at a cost: try $135,000 per person. A whopping figure, no doubt, but that pricetag does carry merit, with accommodations and meals paid for at every stop. The price isn’t needed in full, either, as the payment plan gives people three-month installments of approximately $33,000 due, along with a $7,500 deposit.
The aircraft, a Boeing 757, features lie-flat beds, a full service bar, and dedicated staff and crew to serve your every need at 30,000 feet. If we can fit in your carry-on, let us know. We’d be happy to squeeze in.
