The luxury brand is adding three new excursions to its ultraexclusive private jet journeys for 2023. If you’re not familiar with the private jet offerings, they are specially curated global itineraries filled with unique experiences carefully tailored by Four Seasons for travelers. We’re talking about three weeks of travel to multiple destinations, with all the travel aboard Four Seasons’ own private jet. This is next-level travel.

“Regardless of the chosen itinerary, the expertise and personalised service of our dedicated Four Seasons Private Jet team offers travellers the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy every moment to its fullest,” says Christian Clerc, president of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, which is now offering seven of these elite expeditions in 2023, the most the company has offered in a single year.

As you might imagine, these trips are extraordinarily expensive.

The price tag for the newest additions to the lineup starts at $190,000 per person, so if you were an early investor in cryptocurrency, this would be a good reason to cash out! But while this type of traveling is only attainable for a lucky few, demand is high enough that the company decided to expand the program for 2023, a year many in the industry expect travel to fully rebound after two extraordinarily tough years.

Four Seasons is offering seven private jet journeys next year, with each itinerary built around a different theme. The new offerings include:

  • Timeless Encounters: March 26-April 18 ($190,000 per person, based on double occupancy).
    • Kona, Hawaii; Bora Bora, French Polynesia; Sydney; Bali, Indonesia; Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai, Thailand; Taj Mahal, India (daytrip); Dubai; Prague; London.

This is a 24-day global hopscotch that will find you enjoying time on a chartered yacht in Sydney Harbour before jetting to Bali and its spectacular beaches, Northern Thailand, Dubai, a visit to India to take in the splendor of the Taj Mahal, and the finale in London.

  • Ancient Explorer: Aug. 16-Sept. 8 ($190,000 per person, based on double occupancy).
    • Miami; Mexico City; Easter Island, Chile; Bora Bora; Great Barrier Reef, Australia; Bangkok; Petra and Wadi Rum, Jordan; the pyramids at Giza, Egypt; Taormina, Italy; Madrid.

This itinerary includes some of the most breathtaking places on the planet, from the Great Barrier Reef and the pyramids of Egypt to Easter Island and the Lost City of Petra. The entire trip is like Indiana Jones’ dream vacation. I mean, when a trip is so packed with awesome locales that I haven’t even mentioned Bora Bora, you know it’s a jaw-dropping trip.

  • Uncharted Discovery: Nov. 30-Dec. 20 ($205,000 per person, based on double occupancy).
    • New Orleans; Peninsula Papagayo, Costa Rica; Machu Picchu, Peru; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Antarctica; Bogota, Colombia; Paradise Island, Bahamas.
