|“If you could pack your bags and go anywhere in the world, where would you go?”
Chances are, you’ve asked yourself this very question a few times already this year. Maybe even this week. For many of us, it’s not the crowded streets of Tokyo’s Shibuya district or the bustling energy of Barcelona’s Las Ramblas that come to mind anymore. Rather, it is the abundant and diverse wildlife of Alaska, the other-worldly greenscapes of Iceland or the roaming, sun-drenched panoramas of Africa. And for the elite, these vacations have already been booked.
Though travel restrictions have all but stopped international travel, there has been a surprising boom in luxury travel where personal or small-group exotic vacations are satisfying the wanderlust for those who value richly-curated and highly personalized experiences.

According to the New York Times, many travelers are using their travel credits to book future travels to even more far-away travel than they had originally scheduled. Ambitious, once-in-a-lifetime adventures give optimists hope and something to look forward to.
For years, we have partnered with Abercrombie & Kent, a travel agency setting the standard in luxury travel for over 50 years. Its “modest” beginnings took root from super-luxe safaris for the super-rich, but has since expanded its offerings and price-points. That said, A&K is witnessing a 58% increase in all of its private travel as premiere, personalized travel to faraway regions of the world becomes the new normal for discerning globetrotters.
The small group travel itineraries include no more than 12-18 guests, and offer insider access to some of the world’s greatest landmarks and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, plus stays in award-winning, five-star hotels.
Private trips for solo travel, couples and families are also available. Below are a few of A&K’s current offerings for 2021, available with flexible change and cancellation policies to ensure you can book your next journey with confidence.
Note: Our partnership with A&K will secure you the best prices on airfare. Contact us at 1-800-435-8776 for more details.
