By land, sea, air, and space, The Explorers Club has strived to preserve the instinct to explore since 1904. With members including Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, club “firsts” include first to the moon, first to the North & South Poles, and first to summit Mt. Everest!
Although we have yet to add The Galaxy to our destinations, Absolute Travel has similarly inspired discerning, adventurous, and curious travelers with thrilling off-the radar trips: from climbing volcanoes in search of mountain gorillas in Uganda to floating face-to-face alongside curious whale sharks off the coast of Australia; from witnessing East Africa’s legendary migration and bowing with monks in Bhutan to sailing between the fabled Galápagos Islands.
ANNOUNCING OUR PARTNERSHIP
Now, we unite our shared passion for pushing the limits, with an official partnership. We are honored to announce our role as the official luxury travel partner for The Explorers Club and to join the ranks amongst history’s greats.
Together we will invite handpicked specialists including oceanographers, cavers, divers, submariners, mountaineers and adventurers to lead Explorers Club Trips created by the Absolute Travel team. Although we are known for our private custom journeys, our team is creating a series of set departure expeditions exclusively for Explorers Club members. The journeys will be designed in keeping with the underpinning of modern exploration that the Explorers Club strives to propel.
ABSOLUTE & THE EXPLORERS CLUB LAUNCH PARTY
To kick off the partnership Absolute Travel will host a launch party at The Explorers Club’s legendary uptown Jacobean townhouse on October 22nd. Adventurers will recount “Stories from the Field” and showcase a series of expeditions designed for the membership and beyond, including:
• A Penguin Trip in New Zealand with Dyan deNapoli, penguin expert, TED speaker, and award-winning author slated for November 30-December 12 2014
• World Heritage Sites of Iran
• American Prairie Reserve’s Trip Through Time: Float, Hike, and Discover America’s Serengeti
ABSOLUTE PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER KEN FISH ON THE PARTNERSHIP
“The legendary Explorers Club galvanizes thrill-seekers and helps preserve the very special spirit of chasing adventure at a time when it’s so easy to live life virtually,” says Ken Fish, Absolute Travel President & Founder. “The Absolute Travel team is honored to help facilitate discovery for this eclectic crew through a distinctive set of experiential journeys.”
We couldn’t be more humbled or excited to continue exploring the far-flung corners of our world (and beyond!) with The Explorer’s Club.
