These Travel Options prove that sometimes the Journey is more important than the destination

By air, land or sea.

01 LEAVING A LEGACY

Time is money, so how about saving time while making money by taking meetings mid-air aboard a private jet of your own? Look no further than the Legacy 450 by Embraer. The mid-light jet has a flying range of up to 2,900 nautical miles with four passengers – which lets you fly to various cities, including New Delhi, Perth and Seoul, from Kuala Lumpur in a reduced-noise cabin. However, the most impressive feat of the aircraft is the Full Fly-by-Wire flight controls rarely seen in its peers. The technology uses electrical computermonitor systems to control the aircraft’s rudders and wing flaps that increases accuracy and safety in the aircraft’s operations. Knowing that you’re safe and sound, it’s so much easier to enjoy the well-designed interiors of the posh cabin perfected in partnership with BMW.

 

02 FIRE AND ICE

For those who wish to test their limits, a trip to explore the surreal landscapes of Iceland is simply a must. Here, one can find themselves trekking through all kinds of extreme terrain that include an untamed mingling of rocky deserts, jagged peaks, glaciers, hot springs and more. Naturally, most of these amazing places are also very difficult to access by land, which is why your best bet would be to sign up for a helicopter tour with Momentum Adventure. If you’re feeling extra bold, you can also ask to visit to the magnificent burning volcanoes that have resided for eons in the northern side of this Nordic island country. momentumadventure.com

 

03 RIDE FREE

There’s simply no better escape for the equestrian enthusiast than by signing up for a grand horseback adventure to uncover the hidden secrets of Patagonia, a sparsely populated region that encompasses the southern cone of South America. Available through Explora Patagonia, one can experience the joys of nature while riding on the backs of the Criollo, a native horse breed that was designed to tackle the challenging valleys, rivers and beech forests that make up the local terrain. After a long day of riding free, be sure to indulge in an asado while trading stories of your grand adventure with the local gauchos. explora.com
