Abercrombie & Kent Launches 'Northern Lights & Soul of the Arctic'
June 21, 2016
“I have spent half a century adventuring around the globe, and still the Northern Lights have succeeded in eluding me,” explains Abercrombie & Kent Founder, CEO and Chairman Geoffrey Kent. “And so it is around their bewitching displays that I have created this Inspiring Expedition, an extraordinary adventure to the very heart of the Arctic Circle.”
Northern Lights and Soul of the Arctic (March 25 – April 1, 2017) is spectacular journey for just 20 guests, filled with high adventure and insider access - personally planned and accompanied by A&K's pioneering founder Geoffrey Kent. Fly by private jet above the Arctic Circle. Enjoy luxury chalet accommodations featuring your own aurora observation dome complete with en suite bathroom and a private sauna. Revel in days filled with rally car ice racing, safaris by snowmobile and inspiring interactions with the Sami, the Arctic's indigenous nomads.
“In such a remote location as the Arctic Circle, accommodations are scarce, so we've taken over a wilderness lodge and are upgrading it to our exacting standards just for this expedition,” says Kent. “We're building luxury timber-clad chalets, featuring aurora observation domes – complete with en suite bathroom and sauna – that afford glorious views of the scintillating night skies.”
Highlights of this hand-crafted journey include:
• A truly unique and privileged evening at Windsor Castle, which will set the stage for a week of insider access experiences.
• Safaris by snowmobiles, dogsleds and reindeer sleighs with gourmet picnics set among unforgettable landscapes.
• Rally car racing on a purpose built ice track in the middle of the wilderness, with instruction from champion racecar drivers
• Lessons in winter survival skills from a world authority, then the ability to test your skills on an ‘Inspiring Arctic Expedition Treasure Hunt'
• Rare and authentic interaction with Sami nomads, Shamans and their reindeer herds
• Scenic flight to observe the dramatic scenery of Northern Finland and the ice clad fjords of Northern Norway
• An Arctic concert in an 'ice temple' designed, created and crafted exclusively for A&K guests
• Opportunities for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing through picturesque forests.
• Travel to and from the Arctic Circle, into Finland and out of Norway, by Private Jet.
The Ultimate in Expertise
Leading the journey alongside Geoffrey Kent is Toby Fenwick-Wilson, one of A&K's most celebrated and well-travelled guides, who worked alongside Kent to personally handcraft the itinerary. A team of expert lecturers who are heads of their field on the aurora borealis, the Arctic environment and the anthropology of the Sami peoples will join the group to provide unmatched insight into the destination.
Inspiring Expeditions by Geoffrey Kent enable intrepid travellers to explore the most remote and exciting lands, oceans and peoples on the planet. With an unfettered imagination and over half a century of logistical expertise and experience, Geoffrey Kent and his team have developed a new level of comfort, luxury and access to the most inaccessible locations. And by using private jets to reach these destinations, Abercrombie & Kent has removed the hassles and obstacles of commercial travel, replacing them with elegance and ease.
These exclusive journeys were launched at the end of 2015 with Treasures of Palau (November 13-21, 2016), which recreates Jacques Cousteau's famous expedition to Palau in the utmost style aboard the exclusively chartered superyacht, MS ‘Saluzi.' Enjoy some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the world and swim among millions of non-stinging Mastigias jellyfish in Jellyfish Lake, which A&K has reserved exclusively. Tour historic World War II battle sites and enter by special permission the Seventy Islands, a World Heritage Site off-limits to outsiders for nearly 60 years.
