We know the important role you play in helping your clients take their time to connect with family and friends. The unique itineraries you plan encourage people to spend quality time together, share adventures and create lasting memories.

Connecting is a major driver for travel, and according to Affluent Perspective 2017 Global Study, YouGov, it is more significant among Four Seasons guests than among other affluent travellers.

Among Four Seasons guests, 80% seek to take vacations with family, compared to 69% of other global premium travellers. A full 81% of Four Seasons guests said, “More and more I am looking for vacations where I can include my entire family,” versus 74% of other affluent travellers. For 83% of Four Seasons guests, the goal is to “connect more with my spouse or family.”

Four Seasons is an ideal choice for family travel – with our multi-bedroom suites, residential options, our Kids For All Seasons program and creative ideas for family adventures.

Your clients can visit a lost city in the Sierra Nevada mountains on this astonishing day trip – exclusively available to guests of our two hotels in the Colombian capital: Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá and Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogotá. It’s a truly rare adventure to share with friends or family.

The excursion begins in the morning, when guests are chauffeured to a private hangar at Bogotá’s El Dorado International Airport. Travellers are whisked away on a 45-minute journey by luxury private plane to Santa Marta, where a helicopter is waiting.

The 45-minute chopper ride gives a first glimpse of the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada range. Fly over the deep jungle landscapes in one of the planet’s most diverse areas and witness from above the Ciudad Perdida (Lost City), with ruins dating back to A.C. 650. The area is still home to four different indigenous communities, including the Kogi people.

Upon landing, your clients will spend an hour visiting the community with an expert bilingual guide. Guests will be welcomed into the traditional mud-thatched houses to learn about the ancient culture and how it has been preserved for hundreds of years. (There’s also an opportunity to donate to the community to help with the education of children and preservation of the local traditions.)

In late morning, everyone flies to the One Love Reserve of Casa Galavanta for a Four Seasons-style lunch and one or two pre-selected activities, such as trekking in the jungle, paddle boarding down the Palomino River, yoga, birdwatching, visiting a coffee plantation, or just relaxing in nature.

The afternoon includes another helicopter tour over the Tayrona National Natural Park, home to a number of Caribbean beaches and thick tropical forests. The journey follows the Don Diego River into the Caribbean Sea and above the glistening waters of Cinto Bay. Then it’s time to head back to Four Seasons.

This tour is currently the only luxury travel of its kind allowing tourists to visit the area – and it’s only available through Four Seasons. The cost is USD 17,600 for a maximum of four guests.

A trip to Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora is the adventure of a lifetime – perfect for couples or families with teens.

To create an unforgettable morning, suggest your clients take a Maritime Safari – available for up to eight guests. They’ll meet the Resort’s own marine biologist Denis Schneider on the dock, where a private boat and captain await. As they set forth into the lagoon, it’s a chance to get to know Denis and his fascinating background, and learn what’s to come on the journey.

The first stop is the Coral Garden, where a coral garden protects some of the fragile coral colonies that are crucial to the local ecosystem. Everyone dons their snorkel gear and jumps in, surrounded by colourful reef fish and even a curious moray eel.

Once back aboard, the captain serenades everyone with traditional Tahitian tunes, while heading towards shallow waters to meet Bora Bora’s friendly rays. In this surprisingly warm and clear part of the lagoon, Denis introduces guests to the rays, while he shares a wealth of knowledge about their environment.

Everyone can recharge with some fresh coconut water as the boat cruises through the channel into the Pacific Ocean. Here, there’s a chance to swim among mysterious (and perfectly safe) black-tip reef sharks, and if it’s a lucky day, a lemon shark.

To finish, the captain invites everyone to his motu (a private island) for a traditional Polynesian lunch, featuring local lagoon fish, fresh fruits and family favourites, along with cold Tahitian beer.

In the afternoon, plan for some pampering at the award-winning Spa at Four Seasons. In an overwater spa suite, couples can indulge in a coconut milk bath on the private deck, or enjoy a soothing massage while gazing through the suite’s glass floor at colourful fish and coral.

Consider booking the new Pareo Ritual. This exotic spa experience uses a local pareo (wrap-around skirt) to stretch and manipulate the body, bringing incredible relief and increased range of motion. And guests are able to keep the pareo as a souvenir. It’s another experience to cherish together at Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora.

Everyone talks about architecture in Chicago, especially the locals. Learning about the city’s buildings is a great chance for your clients to explore and learn together – whether on land or on the water. Four Seasons Hotel Chicago makes it easy!

Your clients can go behind the curtain at the Lyric Opera House, an art deco masterpiece built in 1929. With 3,563 seats, it’s the second-largest opera auditorium in North America. The Four Seasons concierge team can arrange an exclusive architectural tour, followed by a gourmet picnic lunch on Oak Street Beach, just a few blocks from the hotel.

Families will see even more landmarks on an afternoon cruise of Lake Michigan aboard the Vintage, a 75-foot luxury yacht hosting up to 20 guests. Guided by Captain Chris Edmonds and his crew, they’ll view the majestic Chicago skyline, including the water’s edge Navy Pier, Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium. Other high-rise architectural gems include 900 North Michigan (home to Four Seasons), the John Hancock Tower, Aon Center and the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower). At sunset, everyone can sit down for a multi-course dinner, prepared on board by Four Seasons Executive Chef, Michael Zachman.

Head back to the property and enjoy the newly reimagined Ice Cream Cart. This on-call service wheels a playful cart into their guest room or suite, creating the custom sundae of everyone’s dreams.

With so many possibilities for shared activities, Four Seasons Hotel Chicago will definitely create some lasting family memories.

Switzerland is famous for the beauty of its lakes and mountains, its mouth-watering chocolate and delicious cheese. Lesser known, but just as impressive, is Swiss wine.

Yann Hangouët, Chef Sommelier at Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues Geneva, will take your clients on an unforgettable helicopter journey into Swiss wine country. A Four Seasons expert for nearly six years, Yann has been exploring the world’s finest wines with regular visits to top winemakers. With his passion and personality, Yann will help your clients discover the flavours and finesse of his country’s wines.

Swiss wines have a long history, dating back to the Roman era. They’re not widely known internationally because nearly all Swiss wine is consumed within the country – with less than 2% exported. The two most common grape varieties are the red Pinot Noir and the white Chasselas.

First on this helicopter tour, guests discover the vineyards of Lavaux, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, just a 20-minute flight from Geneva. Established in the 11th century, the Domaine Jean-René Germanier features south-facing terraced vineyards that are famous for their three suns: the real one, the one reflected by the lake and the one reflected by the stone walls. There’s a definite Mediterranean character to the region. Enjoy a wine tasting in their “cave,” then try their traditional Swiss raclette. This tour is a Four Seasons exclusive. No other hotel can access the experience.

It’s then a 20-minute flight to Valais, where Yann will take guests through the vast Domaine Jean-René Germanier, accompanied by Gilles Besse, a direct descendant of Monsieur Germanier who founded the estate in 1896. In this exclusive Four Seasons tour, guests enjoy a private wine tasting, as well as a chance to sample their own unique version of raclette.

Guests return to Four Seasons for a custom dinner at Izumi, the rooftop Japanese restaurant, where every course is accompanied by Swiss wines personally selected by Yann Hangouët.

Sharing this “Art of Swiss Wine” adventure is a wonderful way for your clients to connect and create memories. The trip is available for up to four guests.
