Firm creates around-the-world plans

SAN FRANCISCO -- Agents can book clients on themed, around-the-world travel programs arranged by High Adventure Travel here.

The company, which offers commissionable consolidator air tickets and specializes in around-the-world travel, has arranged three air programs that can be taken at any time during the year with each offering a different focus.

  • Endless Summer starts with a departure from Miami and chases the sun (during winter months) to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Cape Town, South Africa; Harare, Zimbabwe; Nairobi, Kenya; Bangkok, Thailand, and Hong Kong before returning to Miami. The air-only price is $2,983.
  • Lions, Tigers and Bears visits the endangered and exotic wildlife of Asia and Africa, departing from New York and visiting London, Nairobi, Kathmandu, Nepal, Bangkok and Beijing before returning to New York. The air-only program is $2,535.
  • Spiritual Hot Spots starts in Los Angeles and travels to Rome; Tel Aviv, Israel; Amman, Jordan; Delhi and Varanasi, India; Kathmandu, Bangkok; Jakarta and Bali, Indonesia before returning to Los Angeles. The price is $2,595, with an extension to Lhasa, Tibet, available at an additional cost.
  • Those buying the programs can travel at their own pace for up to one year.

    Jim Pilaar, president of High Adventure Travel, said the programs are new for the company, which typically sells the tickets but never before arranged themed departures with specific routings. "We also invite everyone with a touch of wanderlust to build their own round-the-world itinerary at and e-mail it to us for a free fare quote," he said.
