If you’ve ever read the classic novel written by Jules Verne, then you’ve most likely fantasised about travelling the world and witnessing incredible locations and cultures within a short amount of time.

Thanks to First Class Holidays, the time has now come where this is truly a possibility. The miraculous bucket list journey will have eager travellers experiencing the adventure of a lifetime as they journey around the world in 80 days.

Recently launched, the award-winning luxury tour operator has designed a trip entirely inspired by the famous novel and will focus on First Class’s four core destinations: Canada, America, Australia and New Zealand; as if these were not enough, the company will be adding South Africa to their destinations in June this year.

The incredible journey will cover 25 locations in 6 countries across 3 continents. Beginning your unforgettable adventure in London, you will first fly to vibrant New York, then experience the beauty of Canada before travelling to the Rockies and witnessing America’s western highlights.

Afterwards, cross the Pacific for your stop in Hawaii for a picturesque getaway before visiting New Zealand’s North and South islands, where travellers will enjoy three memorable rail journeys. Once you’ve completed this, head off to Cairns to explore the unrivalled grandeur of the Great Barrier Reef before visiting Melbourne and Sydney.

Don’t worry, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the pleasures of the sea when you relax in the idyllic island of Mauritius for a week before indulging in the wonders that Cape Town has to offer; perhaps an exhilarating drive tour along the Garden Route?

Spend a few nights in Johannesburg and prepare for a three-night all-inclusive Safari Lodge stay; the perfect way to end an incredible journey.

The Managing Director, Dan Gathercole, explained how the extraordinary 80-day getaway has been specifically designed to showcase the very best of First Class’s portfolio.

The price for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure starts at £19,999 per person and begins departing from Heathrow on the 8th of January, 2020

Gathercole proudly discusses how “this tour highlights all our destinations in a way that we’ve never featured them before and showcases the breadth of experiences available across our portfolio of five of the world’s key holiday destinations for discerning travellers”.
