If you’re still weighing where your 2024 travels should take you, let A&K’s pioneering founder Geoffrey Kent offer some suggestions. Here are his top picks for the new year and some firsthand insights into the best destinations for your next inspiring adventure.

1 Norway

“Norway has long been an under-explored destination,” says Geoffrey, “but with this summer’s record temperatures causing more travellers to look north, it may not stay that way for long.” Many come to see the dramatic fjords and stay at architect-designed wilderness lodges. In its capital, Oslo, the Munch Museum beckons with 26,000 of the artist’s works (including his most famous, The Scream).

2 Paris

As the luminous French capital prepares to light the Olympic cauldron, its hotel scene has been on a sprint of high-vaulting openings all its own,including the opulent Le Grand Mazarin, with its sophisticated blend of traditional and modern design touches, and others touting eclectic decor, from tapestry bed canopies to leopard-print upholstery.

3 North Pole

“Abercrombie & Kent’s North Pole Expedition Cruise,our inaugural voyage to the top of the world, represents an incomparable call to adventure,” says Geoffrey. Explore in comfort aboard the exclusively chartered innovative new icebreaker, ‘Le Commandant Charcot,’ as A&K’s acclaimed team leads the way to the geographic North Pole. While en route, venture off board to hike over the ice, kayak through open leads or take an invigorating polar plunge. It’s the ultimate unexplored frontier.

4 Costa Rica

This big-thinking Central American nation is apioneer of ecotourism — over a quarter of the country is now protected as national parks, marine reserves and conservation sanctuaries, ideal for those seeking an active, low-impact getaway. Direct flights connecting the capital San José with the United States have increased and Papagayo, gateway to the Nicoya Peninsula, offers an increasing number of superb hotels, such as the revamped Four Seasons Peninsula Papagayo.

5 Expeditions

“For its classic blend of history, culture and cuisine, Italy is a must-see destination,” says Geoffrey. “While most travellers understandably focus on Rome’s timeless sights, such as the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel, my newest Inspiring Expedition, which I will co-host with His Grace the Duke of Roxburghe, ventures into sun-soaked Tuscany, and to the fascinating ruins of Pompeii and the Gulf of Naples. Join us as we sample wines in Verona, visit Capri’s famed Blue Grotto by private yachtand attend the legendary Palio di Siena horse race, viewing it from a private balcony overlooking the racecourse, on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.”

6 Saudi Arabia

Until 2019, the only tourists allowed to visit Saudi Arabia were religious pilgrims. As this once-closed nation begins to open to the West, its ancient wonders, like the carved tombs of Hegra deep in the AlUla desert, stand ready to inspire awe in travellers for all corners of the world.

7 Morocco

“When you experience Morocco with A&K,” notes Geoffrey, “you become immersed in a storied culture with a 10,000-year history crisscrossed by Roman legions, Berber caravans and Muslim scholars.” Eager to welcome back travellers, Morocco invites you to sip aromatic mint tea in cool courtyards, peruse sun-drenched bazaars and savor signature insider access moments such as a starlit stay amid the Sahara’s dunes at the A&K Private Desert Camp.

8 Vietnam

Vietnam is one of Asia’s most exciting places to eat, with a cuisine that has found its way into the hearts — and stomachs — of countless visitors to Asia. “But to sample the country’s most authentic food culture,” advises Geoffrey, “take to the streets, delving into everything from duck congee to pork skin salad.” Then work up your appetite again by exploring this lush, beautiful locale filled with living history and welcoming people.

9 Kenya

The place where it all began for Abercrombie & Kent, Kenya is one of 2024’s favourite destinations. “Having been born on safari and founded Abercrombie & Kent with my parents in this timeless locale as well,” notes Geoffrey, “I will always cherish this amazing place, from its iconic wildlife, including the fabled Big Five, to its vast sun-baked plains and its caretakers, the pastoral Maasai.”

Site of Napoleon’s second exile following his final defeat in 1815, Saint Helena was recently showcased in Ridley Scott’s epic historical drama Napoleon. Located 1 300 miles west of the coast of Namibia, it is one of the most remote islands on earth. “Though a challenge for most travellers to reach, A&K reveals it with an elegance worthy of an emperor,” notes Geoffrey.
