What you'll do

6 continents. 18 countries. One extraordinary adventure.

Circumnavigate the globe during this 12 week trip, where you’ll explore the culture and traditions of medieval Europe, the former Soviet Union, eastern Africa, the Middle East, northern and southern Asia, the South Pacific, the Americas, and a Nordic island. Yes, you read that right.

Just like the famous French novel by Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days, this travel tale starts and ends in London. But unlike the book’s protagonist, the only thing you have to wager is missing out on the trip of a lifetime. All you have to do is make sure you have enough empty pages in your passport, buy a round trip ticket to and from London, and get on that first flight. When you land, the first chapter of your around the world adventure begins.

Ready to take off? Then mark your calendars—the journey starts September 1 and ends November 19, 2019.

There are only 4 spots left, all of which will now be available for booking on:
