Whether it’s a sailing trip in the beautiful Komodo Islands, a polar adventure cruise in Spitsbergen, or a visit to Rwanda’s majestic mountain ranges, seasoned travelers know that the best places on earth are always the most remote—and therefore, the most satisfying. These journeys, however, can be time-consuming and will hurt your investments.

Mega Yachts, private transfers, and typical decadence come to mind when you think of the world’s most luxurious experiences. Still, we’d characterized true luxury as exclusive access to some of the world’s most precious treasures. True luxury brings you to new heights, giving you insight into new viewpoints, lifestyles, environments, food, and even landmarks. Whether it’s breathing in the crisp mountain air at a luxury camp 4,500 feet above sea level or sailing in an old, iconic yacht, these fantastic experiences all have one thing in common: they’re once in a lifetime.

Watch a concert – inside a volcano.

Are volcanoes as fascinating to you as they are to us? Have you ever wondered what a volcano’s interior looks like?

Even better, it treats you to a private concert that even your favorite band would approve of. So pack up your bags and fill up your gas for this one-of-a-kind evening.
