Fancy a round the world journey in a private jet?

Abercrombie & Kent has launched an exclusive round the world trip via private jet.

Folks, this is the ultimate luxe travel experience of all of our dreams.

According to the luxury travel company, the curated ‘Cultural Treasures: Around the World by Private Jet’ will feature some of the world’s most fascinating people, places and celebrations in intimate and enriching ways.

This epic journey features such timeless destinations as Kyoto, Kathmandu and Abu Dhabi, where enduring history blends seamlessly with a bustling modern culture.

The jet will stop at Japan, Mongolia, Nepal, Bhutan, Agra and Abu Dhabi before ending the journey with a taste of Sicilian dolce vita in Taormina, where guests can explore picturesque villages from a unique perspective behind the wheel of a vintage Italian sports car.

It’s also jam-packed with invitation-only events including a tshechu ceremony, a longstanding Bhutanese tradition with masked dancers; traditional contests of archery, wrestling and horsemanship at Mongolia’s Naadam Games; and an exclusive Sicilian welcome party styled after a traditional wedding, with celebratory dancing, music and food –arranged exclusively for A&K guests.

There are also opportunities to personalise the experience with a choice of Design Your Day options, from relaxing spa treatments to active outdoor excursions. In Kyoto, it may be meeting a master swordsman for a hands-on samurai experience; sake tasting or learning about traditional indigo dyeing from a famous artisan.

On the ground, guests travel in small groups of no more than 16, each led by a Tour Manager, assisted by expert local guides who share their personal stories and lend insight. Plus, an onboard physician who travels with the group and A&K’s Travelling Bell Boy service ensures luggage is waiting in rooms when guests arrive.

The privately-chartered Boeing 757-200ER seats 50 in its custom-designed Italian leather seats, equipped with a personal massage system, 4-way adjustable headrests and lumbar support, that open to fully lie-flat beds.

Unfortunately, a seat on the jet will set you back around $174,930 AUD so we’re going to have to settle for daydreaming about this luxe experience during our next cramped economy flight.

But if you (or a client) happen to have a spare hundred grand or so laying around, this seems like the ultimate way to spend it.
