Of all the untold journeys Abercrombie & Kent founder Geoffrey Kent has planned in the past fifty years, this may have been the most remarkable. Around the World with Geoffrey Kent by Private Jet: The Tropics to the Arctic was a nearly month-long journey designed and hosted by Kent himself, aboard an exclusively chartered private jet equipped with 50 fully lie-flat, first-class seats – and featuring destinations not yet on the radar of most travellers. Beginning in the Tropics, with eye-opening visits to Colombia, French Polynesia and the Solomon Islands, they continued to the Philippines, one of the best places on earth to see whale sharks. Guests then experienced a way of life on the Mongolian steppes which has changed little since the days of Genghis Khan, before exploring two cities built by great conquerors, Samarkand (Tamerlane) and St. Petersburg (Peter the Great). The adventure ended in Greenland, where the sun never sets at that time of year.
