“In response to the overwhelming popularity of our private jet programme, we’re pleased to announce the addition of an all-new 2018 journey, creating even more opportunities for guests to experience the extraordinary people and memorable destinations that define the Four Seasons Private Jet Experience,” says J. Allen Smith, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
For the first time, guests can experience the beauty of Rwanda and the adventures of the Galapagos with every aspect of their journey looked after with the attention to detail and thoughtful service that Four Seasons is known for.
World of Adventures guests board the Four Seasons Private Jet in Seattle, bound for Kyoto. There they will visit Kikaku-ji, Kyoto’s famed bamboo jungle; study samurai sword-fighting and historic artwork in equal measure; and enjoy a sumptuous private dinner at Kenninji Temple, the most ancient Zen temple in Kyoto.
Next, it’s on to explore the azure waters of Bali, then the pristine beaches and lush jungles of the Seychelles before continuing westward. In the verdant mountains of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, guests will follow in the footsteps of Dian Fossey’s famous studies of mountain gorillas as they trek with an expert naturalist guide by day and relax in one of the park’s acclaimed lodges in the evening. Before leaving Africa, Private Jet guests stop in Marrakech for private shopping excursions, a day in the Atlas Mountains with a Berber family, and an afternoon in the magical Majorelle Garden.
The World of Adventures journey continues on to Bogotá, Colombia’s sophisticated capital of art, design and gastronomy. Then, in another itinerary highlight, guests will embark on a bespoke cruise through the Galápagos Islands, where they will swim alongside sea lions in Gardner Bay; snorkel with manta rays; and photograph the rich and rare assortment of seabirds that make the Galápagos their home. Finally, adventure’s end comes in Orlando.
Additional itineraries by Four Seasons include, the Timeless Encounters (March 1 to 24, 2018) covering Hawaii – Bora Bora – Sydney – Bali – Chiang Mai/Chiang Rai – Taj Mahal – Dubai – Prague – London, touching on the landmarks of four continents.
