Beyond Expectations: Journeys by Land, Sea and Sky

How do you want to see the world? Perhaps by flying high above the clouds on a private jet from one bucket-list destination to the next. Maybe the idea of driving through some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes fuels your sense of wonder. Or it could be the sea that calls your name, with a voyage of discovery both on the water and on shore.

No matter what your dream trip may look like, Four Seasons offers one-of-a-kind experiences by private jet, luxury car or yacht. These extraordinary journeys speak to the heart of what it means to be a traveller: a deep-seated curiosity that drives you to discover and experience the cultures, flavours and beauty of the world up close.

By Air: Fly high on the Four Seasons Private Jet

Encounter mountain gorillas in the bamboo forests of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. Stand at sunrise with 15 moai statues and gain insight into Easter Island’s Rapa Nui people. Emerge from a narrow canyon to marvel at Petra’s sandstone Treasury, a temple carved into rock millennia ago.

Such unforgettable moments happen on curated itineraries exclusive to the Four Seasons Private Jet Experience. With ultra–high touch and anticipatory service, an on board private chef and the ability to customize your itinerary at each destination along the way with the help of a dedicated on board Concierge, travelling on the Private Jet allows you to be fully present and worry free – everything here is taken care of for you. Journeys range from 13 to 24 days, focusing on regions such as Africa or Asia or touching down around the world at a mix of remote and famed destinations. All this with a custom-outfitted Airbus A321neo-LR as your luxury hotel in the sky.

On the family-friendly African Wonders 2024 journey, you’ll fly from Cairo to the Serengeti to the rainforests of Rwanda and to Victoria Falls – among other stops – on a seven-destination, 13-day adventure. See the vast grasslands from a hot-air balloon, followed by breakfast in the bush, and then return to Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti to relax in an infinity pool overlooking an elephant watering hole.

The settings are exceptional by design, but certain moments add extra magic. For Shari Moss, a previous Private Jet traveller, it was encountering elusive mountain gorillas in Rwanda that left a lasting impression. “A mother is lying in a hollow beside me with her two little ones. … She unfurls her hand and touches my boot. Our eyes lock. This, to me, is the most important minute of the entire journey,” she writes.

Combining dynamic cities, wonders of the world and idyllic islands, the Asia Unveiled 2025 itinerary starts in Tokyo, where travellers can attend samurai school, followed by a stay at an overwater villa in the Maldives. Up next, a stop in Hoi An where guests can savour a culinary tour of the city aboard a vintage Vespa. In Bhutan, you’ll have the rare opportunity to climb 2,600 feet up a cliffside in Paro Valley to reach the legendary Tiger’s Nest Monastery, one of the country’s most sacred and awe-inspiring sites. On the way to Bangkok, the Jet will touch down for a special day trip to the majestic Angkor Wat temples for a private ceremony led by Buddhist monks. The scent of incense and sounds of spiritual chants are bound to leave a lasting impression – the perfect closing to an incredible journey.

Looking for a truly global adventure? Embark on the 24-day Ancient Explorer 2024 odyssey, taking you to destinations such as Teotihuacan, Easter Island, the Great Barrier Reef, Petra and the Pyramids of Giza and Italy’s Mount Etna, among others. With Four Seasons, as one previous Ancient Explorer guest noted, “Every experience was so well-planned to the finest detail. I never could have done such a thing on my own.”

In addition to African Wonders, Asia Unveiled and Ancient Explorer, Four Seasons offers a variety of expertly curated itineraries that showcase the world in an extraordinary new light. If you’ve ever thought about booking a trip on the Four Seasons Private Jet, keep in mind that seats on these ever-popular journeys tend to go fast, with limited availability left for 2023, 2024 and 2025 itineraries.

By Land: Hit the road with the Four Seasons Drive Experience

For some, the ideal way to see a destination is on the road, behind the wheel of a vintage vehicle or modern supercar. Launched in 2022 with an inaugural trip through the scenic Tuscan countryside, the Four Seasons Drive Experience puts you in the driver’s seat for a trip filled with exclusive culinary and cultural experiences in some of the world’s most beautiful destinations.

Past guests have also driven through the Alps on a Four Seasons itinerary from Geneva to Megève, with experiences including private reserve wine tastings; gourmet lunches at beautiful chateaus; a studio tour and private class with a renowned Swiss watchmaker; and convivial dinners complete with live entertainment where friendships are forged and unforgettable memories made – all while taking in gorgeous Alpine lakes along the way. One highlight of that trip was a stop in Gruyère, the village that lends its name to the traditional and much-admired Swiss cheese. Another showstopper: a visit to Mont Blanc Massif, the breathtaking mountain range with 360-degree views of the French, Swiss and Italian Alps.

As for the driving, Four Seasons can arrange for a vehicle of your choice, or you can opt to bring your own car. The Drive Experience is completely customizable to your interests.

In the fall of 2023, the Drive Experience heads to Napa Valley, where you can take to the rolling hills of California’s premier wine country, meet the area’s culinary stars and sample rare wines at exclusive wineries such as Opus One, Promontory and ADAMVS. A ferry through San Francisco Bay and a hot-air balloon ride add further context as you explore the region. This wine-lover’s dream trip is slated for October 29 through November 4.

By Sea: Embark on the open seas with Four Seasons Yachts

In 2025, Four Seasons will take to the seas with sailings through the Mediterranean and Caribbean aboard a custom-built luxury yacht.

Fincantieri, one of the world’s leading shipbuilding groups, together with renowned design and interior visionaries, are crafting a vessel with 95 spacious suites, featuring a distinct residential feel, floor-to-ceiling windows and private terrace decks. The most expansive of all – the Funnel Suite – will measure nearly 10,000 square feet of combined indoor-outdoor living space across four levels. Elsewhere on board, you’ll come upon a full-service spa, a pool for soaking up the sun, an outdoor theatre, and inventive culinary concepts at several restaurants and bar venues throughout the yacht.

With sustainability top of mind, Four Seasons Yachts will use green or zero-energy fuels (solar or shoreside electrical power when possible), extensive waste recycling, and lower air emissions, ensuring an eco-minded approach is prioritized.

While life aboard the Yacht will be an experience unto itself, inspiring on-shore excursions are also being designed, filled with unique opportunities to immerse yourself in local culture from port to port.
