Luxury travel in 2022 is likely to see an increase in privacy, longer stays, and more creative destinations and excursions. The inability to travel the world over the last couple of years has increased the desire to travel to an all-time-high. People have the ability to spend more money and have the freedom in their schedules to schedule longer trips. Privatized destinations are likely to continue to be in high demand for the upcoming travel year. Whether it be a yacht, private villa or an island, guests are being drawn to private accommodations for increased safety and personalized experiences. 

Luxury Private Jet Tours

One of the most fascinating and luxurious ways to explore the world is through private jet tours. Private jet tours offer a customizable experience with tailored service, comfort, and an opportunity to design your day. These tours are perfect for the traveler who wants to experience several different destinations on a single trip. Travelers get to focus purely on their experience while leaving meals, tours, flights, and other accommodations to the professionals they hire to travel with them.

Some predesigned options for private jet tours include Abercrombie & Kent’s 23-day Cultural Treasures Tour which stops all over Taiwan, India, Nepal, and others. The Four Seasons’ World of Adventures excursion goes to 8 countries in 24 days, including seeing the gorillas in Rwanda, visiting the Galapagos Islands, and touring temples in Kyoto. Roar Africa offers a six night journey to experience a traditional safari in Rwanda in the Akagera National Park and a trek into Volcanoes National Park.

Helicopter Hog Hunting

Another excursion available through the use of private aviation is helicopter hog hunting. Not only is hog hunting from a helicopter legal, it is encouraged by the U.S. Department of Agriculture through the Feral Swine Eradication and Control Pilot Program. Wild hogs are one of the most destructive invasive species in the United States, causing about $400 million in damages annually in at least 39 states and four Canadian provinces. 

Some places to find helicopter hog hunting experiences include Last Shadow, Helihunter, and Pork Choppers Aviation. 

Private Island Experiences

Utilizing private aviation in luxury travel opens up an opportunity to reach private and remote destinations. A private island offers ultimate privacy– a way to disconnect from the busyness of everyday life and connect with yourself or others without any interruptions. 

A popular destination for a private island experience is Turtle Island, Fiji. This recently updated resort is available to only 14 couples at a time with stunning views of the Blue Lagoon, Yasawa and Fiji Islands. 

Another private island experience for consideration is Thanda Island off the coast of Tanzania. Thanda Island is one of the most private and exclusive islands, offering several experiences to soak in the private island experience.

One more island to consider is the Gladden Private Island,  which offers total privacy for 2-4 guests. Just a short plane ride away from Belize, the Gladden Private Island is surrounded by the Belize Barrier Reef. The Gladden Split is just a few miles away, where whale sharks congregate together once a year.

While these three islands are all great options, there are many more to choose from. If you’re looking to experience ultimate luxury and privacy on your vacations in 2022, a private island is a fantastic way to go.  

Even as the pandemic lingers, the travel and private aviation industry is finally able to rebuild itself and even grow. We foresee 2022 to be a year full of fun, unique, and creative travel experiences. If you’re interested in private aviation, our team of experts can help you find the right option for you!
