Next Level World Travel: Private Jet Itineraries Are Taking Off

As the demand for bespoke, one-of-a-kind travel experiences skyrockets, luxury trips designed around the use of private jets are becoming de rigueur for granting guests no-holds-barred access to the world at large.

To celebrate the centennial of America’s National Parks luxury travel operator Privel has partnered with upscale active travel company Austin Adventures to create the ultimate 12-day, eight-park private jet journey. The Majestic American West: Park to Park Journey gives just eight people the chance to visit some of the West’s most storied parks, including Death Valley, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and Yosemite. But there’s no roughing it on this itinerary: Guests stay in top lodges, like Amangani Resort in Jackson, Wyoming, and are treated to a wine paired picnic lunch on the shores of Lake McDonald in Montana and massages at award-winning spas. Wow moments include a hot air balloon ride over the Tetons and helicopter descent from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon into the Native American village of Supai—the most remote town in America. September 18-29, 2016; from $48,898 per person; privelexperiences.com.
