Product description

Fly-fish in the virgin waters of the Chilean fjords, arriving by helicopter; navigate Alaska on a boat as luxurious as a four-star hotel but small enough to sail where the big cruise ships can't; embark on a private-jet tour to the great opera houses in Europe with behind-the-scenes passes: experience the classic links of the British Open. "Once in a Lifetime Trips "is a trove of ideas for travels that are unique, decadent, and off the beaten path. Each trip is captured through stunning photography and an essay based on in-depth interviews with experts who have firsthand knowledge of the destination and itinerary. "Once in a Lifetime Trips" goes way beyond what a standard guide offers: these trips are intended to be distinctive events that you will remember for the rest of your life. Chris Santella distills each experience and describes just what makes it extraordinary-whether it's the culture of the place, a venue's incredible isolation, or the unique amenities available to the traveler. Organized by destination-on the ocean, on an island, in the jungle, in the mountains and the desert, in the country, in the city, in the sky-"Once in a Lifetime Trips" is as much a vicarious and thrilling reading experience as it is a source of ideas and inspiration for anyone in search of a remarkable journey.
