AROUND THE WORLD
IN 80 DAYS
Things have come on quite a bit in the world of travel since Jules Verne sent Phileas Fogg off on his fictional expedition around the world in 80 days
First Class Holidays offer a special tribute to the legendary Phileas Fogg, taking you on a magical journey to explore amazing cities and experience jaw-dropping natural wonders. Here are just some of the spectacular destinations you can see along the way.
NEW YORK & EASTERN CANADA
View the world-famous skyscraper-filled skyline, grab a delicious bagel or visit a historic estate. New York really does have it all. In Ontario, there’s something for everyone – it’s a region where bright city lights rub shoulders with thundering waterfalls, a land steeped in history and tradition, with a diverse culture and a European feel to its cities.
See the beauty of Canada’s first National Park in Banff, an all-year-round resort town set beside the Bow River and surrounded by the scenic Rocky Mountains. Travel along the Icefields Parkway, passing frozen lakes and waterfalls along the way before arriving in stunning Jasper. Vancouver boasts a glorious waterfront setting and the stunning 1000-acre Stanley Park.
WEST COAST USA
Las Vegas offers non-stop fun to all who seek it, and nearby is one of the natural wonders of the world – the Grand Canyon. San Francisco is characterised by the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge, as well as the infamous Alcatraz Island. Head to Los Angeles and experience the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, go celebrity spotting in Beverly Hills or soak up the sun on the beaches of Santa Monica and Long Beach.
Discover a world of idyllic beaches, waterfalls, emerald rainforests and vibrant culture. Delicious food and a laid-back lifestyle will leave you longing for more. For incredible views, visit historical Pearl Harbour or scuba dive to see wrecks, reefs and marine life in Hanauma Bay.
Active volcanoes, island sanctuaries and history top the list when visiting New Zealand’s North Island. Journey through landscapes that blend magnificent beaches, sprawling farmlands and geothermal wonders. Maori culture is rich and ever-present in many parts of the North Island.
New Zealand’s South Island hosts the purest natural landscapes you’ll ever experience. From wildlife to wineries, from glacial valleys to star-filled skies, nature’s best flourishes against a palette of dramatic scenery. Here, towering alps meet peaceful sounds and rugged coastlines merge with sweeping plains.
Australia offers something for everyone. From cosmopolitan cities and stunning scenery to amazing underwater reefs and marine life, sun-drenched tropical beaches and the scorched yet inspirational Red Centre to verdant vineyards and the hazy Blue Mountains; this is a land just waiting to be explored.
A small island of tranquil shores fringed by crystal seas, backed by mountains cloaked in vibrant shades of green, Mauritius is hidden in the Indian Ocean. Visitors come here for the picture-postcard coastline, but scratch below the surface and you’ll discover more than beaches and glorious sunny days.
South Africa is a melting pot of diverse cultures, stunning scenery, rich flora and fauna, adventure and activities. There are iconic attractions such as Soweto, the largest township in Africa, Mvezo, the birthplace of Nelson Mandela, Table Mountain – one of the New7Wonders of Nature, the Western Cape’s world-famous wine region and the equally famous Kruger National Park.
