Abercrombie & Kent Launches Its Most Extensive Collection of Luxury Small Group Journeys for 2025

22 New Journeys Showcase Less Frequented Destinations Across the Globe

June 25, 2024

Abercrombie & Kent, the pioneering luxury travel company, is unveiling its most extensive and diverse portfolio of Luxury Small Group Journeys to date, featuring 22 new, exclusive itineraries. Reflecting the evolving interests of discerning travellers, the collection reveals the near and far corners of the globe.

A resurgence of interest in Southeast Asia and India has led A&K to expand its offerings. New additions include a foodie-focused journey through Vietnam, itineraries in Borneo and Sri Lanka, and a group journey exploring the wonders of Southern India, making A&K the only U.S. operator to offer such a tailored experience. To meet the growing demand for in-depth cultural exploration, A&K has introduced new journeys to Tangier and the blue city of Chefchaouen in Northern Morocco, as well as Colombia. With Europe remaining a top destination, A&K has expanded its European offerings to include new land and river journeys.

“As we curated our Luxury Small Group Journey portfolio for 2025, we had one main goal in mind – innovation," said Stefanie Schmudde, Senior Vice President, Global Product Strategy at Abercrombie & Kent. "Our guests are seeking out-of-the-ordinary experiences that immerse them in each destination's culture and natural wonders. From exploring the unique biodiversity of Madagascar, embarking on a comprehensive journey across Asia by privately chartered air, or discovering Kiwi culture on a standalone New Zealand itinerary, we are pushing the boundaries of exploration with each new journey.”
