With the vaccines rolling out in larger numbers, the world begins preparing for life post-pandemic. After taking a huge hit in 2020, the travel industry continues capitalizing on how much people missed traveling during the pandemic. For 2021, helping travel enthusiasts knock items off their extravagant bucket list, the travel industry offers unique getaways, where privacy reigns supreme and life is celebrated with your loved ones.
Here are some lavish escapes you can book and escape to right now:
1. Luxury Cruising to the North Pole
Come July 2021, Ponant – a high-end expedition cruising company – is debuting a state-of-the-art electric vessel built to explore the arctic. Named the La Commandant-Charcot, the ship’s journey will begin from the Norwegian archipelago of Spitsbergen all the way to the North Pole. Highlights include ice fishing, dog sledding, polar diving, and hiking expeditions, as well as viewing wildlife such as Arctic foxes and polar bears. Scientists and naturalists will be present onboard to guide guests throughout the journey.
This luxury cruise departs on July 24th, August 8th, and August 23rd, with a per-person cost of $30,010
2. Work from Bora Bora
As of May 1, French Polynesia has reopened its borders, and to commemorate the occasion, The St. Regis Bora Bora is offering a work-from-Bora-Bora package that’ll forever turn you off to office work. The offer allows up to 6 people to share accommodation in the Royal Estate – a 13,000-square-foot villa – complete with a private beach consisting of an office, a pool, and non-motorized sports equipment. Additionally, the stay boasts a personal butler, daily breakfast and dinner, a helicopter tour of the island, and access to the kid’s club.
This luxury stay costs $17,000 a night
3. Rent Out a Boat on the Amazon
That’s right – an entire boat, just for you. The company famed for hosting sustainable and innovative trips to destinations unknown has just made an addition to its fleet: The Aqua Nera. The river vessel boasts 20 suites, and a capacity to carry up to 40 passengers. Starting from Iquitos, a Peruvian port leading to the Amazon, the boat offers three-, four-, and seven- nights trips. Sure, you can always cruise away with a group of strangers but imagine the luxury of chartering an entire boat for yourself, making every call, and a trained staff catering to your beck and call.
Chartering this luxury boat costs $153,000 for up to 40 people.
