Participants in World of Adventures, slated for Oct. 19–Nov. 11, 2018, will gather in Seattle, and proceed on to Kyoto, Japan, where they will study sword fighting and enjoy a private dinner at famous Kenninji Temple. They then will fly to Bali, Indonesia, where they will visit pristine beaches, followed by a visit to the jungles of Seychelles archipelago, off of Africa.
The next stop will be Rwanda Volcanoes National Park, where a naturalist will lead them on a trek. They then will fly to Marrakesh, Morocco, for a private shopping excursion and an afternoon in the fabled Majorelle Garden. The group then will enjoy the art, design and gastronomy of Bogota before cruising to the Galapagos Islands, where participants will buddy-up to extraordinary sea creatures. The group then will fly to Orlando to conclude the trip.
Sound intriguing? Well, it’s not in everyone’s price range. The excursion cost begins at $138,000 for double-occupancy and an extra $12,000 for single-occupancy accommodations.
World of Adventures is part of the Four Seasons Private Jet program, which also includes a sold-out global excursion in September 2017 and two more journeys in 2018.
“The new World of Adventures itinerary marks an exciting extension of our program, creating a unique opportunity for guests to enjoy an end-to-end Four Seasons experience in destinations where we don’t have a presence,” said J. Allen Smith, president and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
One of the program’s other 2018 journeys, Timeless Encounters, will take place March 1–24. It will begin in Kona on Hawaii Island, and proceed to Bora Bora, French Polynesia; Sydney; Bali; Chiang-Mai and Chiang Rai, China; Agra, India; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Prague before ending in London. It has a $135,000 minimum price tag, with $12,000 for single rooms.
The other offering, International Intrigue, will start in Seattle and then travel to Kyoto; Hoi An, Vietnam; The Maldives islands; Serengeti, Tanzania; Marrakech; Budapest; and St. Petersburg, Russia before ending in London. The minimum cost is $135,000, plus an additional $12,000 for single-room occupancy.
The cost of each journey covers air travel, ground transportation, scheduled visits at all locations, all meals and beverages, and luxurious accommodations at Four Seasons properties. At two of the remote locations on the World of Adventures journey, participants stay at other accommodations chosen by Four Seasons.
