Emerging destinations and hard-to-get-to places are the backbone ofeach Abercrombie & Kent Hosted Small Group Journey. Crafted for the more intrepid Australian luxury traveller, these journeys go off-the beaten- track to remote, little-explored destinations where conditions can be challenging but where A&K’s insider knowledge and expertise ensures security and comfort. With integrated cultural and educational experiences, these unique journeys are creatively-designed with guaranteed hosts and guaranteed departures for as few as two guests and no more than 18 on any journey.

Winter Wonderland

This is one of the best places on Earth to witness the Northern Lights when, during the long winter, this extraordinary phenomenon dances across the night sky. With more than three nights spent above the Arctic Circle, the viewing chances are excellent.
