    Have you always wanted to travel the world within a month? That is now possible for approximately 100,000 euros with a private Boeing 757-200 from Icelandair. The aircraft has an extra luxurious configuration with only 80 seats. National Geographic offers a 24-day world tour of ten sights on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Under the guidance of various experts, travelers receive detailed explanations about all the sights that the trip passes.

    The journey begins in Washington and takes travelers past Machu Picchu, Easter Island, Great Barrier Reef, the Taj Mahal, Petra and Marrakech. After 24 days, the trip ends back in Washington.

    The same Boeing aircraft is flown to almost all destinations. Only once is a local airplane employed. Icelandair's 757-200 is aptly shrouded in National Geographic's color scheme. The aircraft has a 2-2 configuration, with 75 of the 80 seats intended for travelers. The leather seats have adjustable leg and headrests and the backrest can also be tilted back 45 degrees.

    Of course, overnight stays are also included in the trip. The hotels and lodges have been selected according to National Geographic for their good service, amenities and easy access to the sights to visit. In the more remote locations, National Geographic has chosen the accommodations that offer enough comfort. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are arranged at all destinations. In some cases, dinners are also arranged at specialty eateries so that travelers can "get a glimpse of the local culture".

    This world tour is offered several times. The next trip is planned from December 29, 2022 to January 21, 2023. Reservations for this trip are no longer possible. Travelers can still sign up for the waiting list. Six world trips are planned in 2023 and two in 2024. If the trip is booked in pairs, travelers will stay just under 100,000 euros per person. People who only book a single pay a little more than 105,000 euros.

    The National Geographic tour is similar to the Disney world tour, taking Disney fans to all twelve theme parks in 24 days. They also fly around the world with the same Boeing 757-200 (registration: TF-FIS). This tour takes place from July 9 to August 1, 2023. This is exactly when the National Geographic world tour is not offered.
