Abercrombie & Kent Founder Geoffrey Kent has planned a new private jet itinerary: "Around the World with Geoffrey Kent by Private Jet: The Tropics to the Arctic."
The itinerary, which runs May 1 - 26, 2016, is a nearly month-long journey designed and hosted by Kent aboard a chartered private jet equipped with 50 fully lie-flat, first-class seats and spotlighting top off-the-beaten-path destinations.
Beginning with visits to Colombia, French Polynesia and the Solomon Islands, guests then continue to the Philippines, one of the best places on earth to see whale sharks. Then, travelers will have a chance to check outlife on the Mongolian steppes, before exploring two cities built by great conquerors, Samarkand (Tamerlane) and St. Petersburg (Peter the Great). The journey ends in Greenland, where the sun never sets that time of year.
The new itinerary was developed by Geoffrey Kent while travelling on an A&K Private Jet journey last fall.
“Our guests were talking about places they dreamed of visiting when the idea for this itinerary began to form,” said Kent.
The journey is capped at 50 guests and offers access to invitation-only events such as a traditional bride-price ceremony in the Solomon Islands, a private street market in Colombia, and a special presentation of the Naadam Games, Mongolia’s traditional contests of archery, wrestling and horsemanship.
Also for 2016, A&K will once again offer its private jet journey, "Around the World by Private Jet: Islands, Savannas & the Amazon" (October 17 – November 11, 2016), also designed by Geoffrey Kent.
