A&K unveils new domestic getaways and NZ air safari

Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) has launched a few new experiences to satisfy those looking to travel locally or across the ditch.

The luxury travel wholesaler has added two new tours of Victoria’s Yarra Valley and Adelaide to its Insider’s collection of weekend getaways, which it says will “offer the perfect immersive discovery of some of Australia’s most appealing, and accessible, regions”.

“Whether travellers are drawn to inspiring art, epicurean delights or indigenous heritage, they will be thrilled by engaging encounters with local personalities, rare culinary and cultural events and exclusive behind the scenes experiences on these exclusive getaways,” A&K said in a statement announcing the new trips.

The ‘Insider’s Yarra Valley: A Weekend Escape’ will run from 21 to 23 May 2021, and the ‘Insider’s Adelaide: Art & Heritage’ trip will take place from 28 to 31 May 2021.

A&K has also added another air safari to its steadily-growing portfolio. Travellers will be able to explore the Land of the Long White Cloud from north to south in 11 days aboard a privately chartered VIP jet, limited to no more than 18 guests.

“This luxury air safari reveals the epic beauty of New Zealand, the fiords, mountains and glaciers of the South Island, the craggy coastline of Cape Kidnappers on the North Island, rare birdlife and marine wonders, the world-class wines of Hawkes Bay and bountiful produce from land and sea,” A&K said.

The new air safari’s two departure dates are 17 February and 13 March 2022.
