This new luxury jet trip will take you around some of Canada’s most famous hotels

A new luxurious private plane trip in Canada will bring travellers to of the country’s best-known hotels in a jet designed to feel like a ski chalet – but it will set the buyer back about $300,000.

To mark Canada’s 150th birthday, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Air Canada created Après in the Air, which combines private flights and travel to some of the hotel company’s famous Canadian properties.

The package is available until the end of 2017 and includes a round trip for up to 58 people by private charter, and stays at the Fairmont Château Laurier, Fairmont Le Château Montebello and Fairmont Tremblant.

The trip will see the private jet converted into a space inspired by a ski chalet, and will touch down on solid ground so guests can take part in Canadian experiences like dog sledding, ice skating, snowmobiling, ice fishing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, skiing, and curling.

Guests will also be able to enjoy pool and spa treatments at the world’s largest log cabin, Fairmont Le Château Montebello, and stay in the Château Laurier, a national historic site, in Canada’s capital of Ottawa.

This luxury trip comes amid many attempts to entice travellers to visit Canada during the sesquicentennial. In 2017, Canada was named the best country to go in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel, and the government has made of all the country’s national parks free for the year.

The luxury train the Rocky Mountaineer also recently announced deals for travelling who want to take a train ride through the Canadian Rockies, and a competition from a tourism group is giving away tickets to Canada’s Northwest Territories.
