Safaris typically involve driving in a jeep through the wilderness of Africa. But one premier private aviation company thought why not have an outdoors-themed adventure across the west coast of the United States from 30,000 feet in the air? Latitude 33 just launched their West Coast Safari private jet excursion that explores the best landscapes of the West Coast in the most luxurious of ways.

Beginning and ending in California, up to nine passengers hop to some of the coast’s most stunning destinations like San Diego, Santa Barbara, Big Sur, Napa Valley, Jackson Hole, British Columbia, and Cabo with additional stops to Hawaii available in 2020. At each stop, you’ll get to explore the native landscape by participating in unforgettable excursions.

Driving up California’s iconic Highway 1, enjoying a hilltop gourmet picnic in Big Sur, sipping wine in a Napa vineyard, fly-fishing on the Snake River, taking a float plane to a remote hot spring, bear watching by boat and swimming alongside Whale Sharks are all included.

Also included are five-star accommodations at some of the top resorts at these destinations. You can stay at the Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, Meadowood Napa Valley, Caldera House in Jackson Hole, The Resort at Pedregal in Cabo, Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa in San Diego, and Lodge at Kukui’ula in Hawaii. And while the company suggests a 16-day itinerary for the full experience, each leg can be booked individually and passengers have the option to fully customize or expand their journey with additional or alternative stops.

Of course, in between the adventures, you’ll get to enjoy the high-end comforts of the Bombardier Challenger 350 jet. Passengers will receive an array of hand-selected in-flight amenities based on the passenger's style and preferences. For example, food and beverage menus are completely customizable but the flight will be stocked with wellness elixir flights from Gratitude to help combat jet lag and to optimize health while flying. There’s also an option to receive customize luggage by ROAM Luggage to your doorstep prior to departure. Your favorite fresh flowers and in-flight massages are also available.

So, what’s the cost for the high-flying west coast our? Pricing starts at $150,000 for four passengers.
