Chapman Freeborn collaborates with EYOS Expeditions to offer air charter and yacht voyages to some of the most remote places on Earth
The expeditions will see travellers visit the polar landscapes of the Arctic and Antarctic as well as crossing the majestic Northwest Passage.
Chapman Freeborn has collaborated with EYOS Expeditions to offer a luxurious twist on adventures to some of the most remarkable and often inaccessible places on the planet.
The collaboration aligns charter experts in both aviation and yachting, allowing travellers to travel by private jet to key destinations worldwide with Chapman Freeborn, before boarding a luxurious expedition yacht and voyaging to the destination of their choice with EYOS Expeditions.
EYOS’ launch trip in 2014 is a 10-night expedition departing from Bodo, Norway and ending up in the wild archipelago of Svalbard. On route, the trip takes in some of the most breath-taking coastline and fjords that Norway has to offer, as well as offering the opportunity for travellers to explore stunning islands and immerse themselves in unique ocean cultures. Svalbard offers over 24,000 square miles of breath-taking arctic wilderness, and adventurers will have the chance to witness polar bears hunting for seals, kayak amidst dazzling icebergs, cruise the face of stunning glaciers and hike with expert guides across the tundra. Although all itineraries are bespoke and fully customisable, a sample itinerary can be found here.
EYOS charters incredible expedition class yachts purpose built for operating in remote regions without sacrificing luxurious interiors. Examples of the features on board their vessels include helicopter pads, saunas and massage treatment rooms as wells as expansive owner’s suites with 180 degree views.
Additional expeditions throughout 2014 are likely to include Greenland, Iceland, the Antarctic and even a crossing of the Northwest Passage – a route that only around 200 vessels have successfully completed.
Whatever the destination and departure point, Chapman Freeborn are able to utilise their worldwide reach and localised expertise to arrange private jet charters that meet a client’s specific schedule, with the utmost discretion, luxury and safety.
Alex Berry, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Chapman Freeborn said: “When you relate Chapman Freeborn’s air charter expertise and capabilities with what EYOS Expeditions are able to offer, the result is a truly unique relationship. After an exhilarating experience in one of the most remote regions on Earth with EYOS, returning clients have access to all the conveniences of private jet charter through Chapman Freeborn, working to their own time schedule and enjoying absolute comfort, privacy and relaxation on their way home.”
Ben Lyons, CEO of EYOS Expeditions, added, “EYOS offers true, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, whether watching a curious polar bear approach the yacht across the frozen sea, or experiencing the joy of having a 40 ton whale surface nearby your Zodiac. Collaborating with Chapman Freeborn will give us the capability and resources to ensure our guests’ exceptional experiences continue until the moment they reach home.”
