Abercrombie and Kent Curate New Adventure-Themed Luxury Journeys

By Paul Joseph

Luxury tour company Abercrombie & Kent has created four new journeys that combine their trademark high-end travel experiences with an adventurous twist.

The Marco Polo Journeys will take guests from the remote wetlands of Brazil’s Pantanal to the coastal wilderness of Canada, or the far-flung desert oasis of Oman’s Wahiba Sands to the hidden paradise of Papua New Guinea.

“We’ve selected destinations and experiences that may not be on many travellers’ radars yet, but that offer the kind of authentic encounters seasoned travellers are in search of,” says Abercrombie & Kent President Keith Baron.

“For the culturally-curious traveler, luxury is as easily found in the depths of Brazil’s Pantanal as it is on the gleaming skydeck of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.”

The Brazilian themed journey will take visitors to the Amazon, Pantanal & Iguazu Falls. You’ll explore the Amazon by canoe, taking a nighttime safari in search of nocturnal wildlife, visiting an isolated village on the Rio Negro and traversing the Pantanal, a wetland that's home to spot ocelots, anteaters and jaguars.

In Wild Canada, meanwhile, you’ll enjoy  a summer adventure in Canada’s northern reaches including a coastal tour of Hudson Bay to observe wildlife in their summer habitat. You’ll also get to spot beluga whales as they gather at the mouth of the Churchill River and get a close up look at American bison up in Fort Whyte. 

Prices range from $6,495 to $10,995 and each journey is open to just 18 guests.
