You have waited long enough. It’s time for rewards. Here are five crème de la crème trips – to the Caribbean, Greece, Italy, the United States and Africa – planned day-to-day. We consulted the best travel designers. We have thought of every detail. You can book the routes as is or customize them to your liking. Contact information for the travel counselors we worked with for each trip is listed in the “How to Book” section at the end of each article. They are still invaluable, and even more so today, with ever-changing travel rules, restrictions and requirements. Please note that all restaurant recommendations are to be determined due to the still uncertain timing of post-Covid openings. (And, because things always change like the wind, get travel insurance.) Dare to say it: Have a nice trip.
A sailing trip around 15 Caribbean islands
Private yacht rentals are synonymous with freedom of travel. You can use them to explore many islands or to spend as much time as possible on the water (useful if the borders suddenly close – each ship also comes with plenty of water toys). You can be as active (mountain biking) or relaxed (spa treatments on board) as you want. You can leave an anchorage earlier than expected, or you can linger. So consider this Leeward Island route as a prime example of what’s possible. When can you go? You can go now, but you may need to adjust some ports of call if the protocols change, that’s okay.

An odyssey in Greece so divine that it would make Ulysses jealous
Whether you’re planning a first trip to Greece or a madness back after the pandemic, the stops, excursions, and treatments on this route are the best (and crowd-free, for now). When can you go? Borders are open, but watch the entry requirements – nothing is set in stone. Plan this trip to Greece
The new grand tour of Italy – Venice, Lake Como, Capri – and everything we love most
We left nothing to chance: you stay in famous hotels, with priority access to monuments, museums and culinary extravagances. More tips for aperitifs with a view. When can you go? Theoretically, now the borders are already open. But the details are still being worked out and a safer bet could be July. Plan this trip to Italy
A comfortable private plane tour of six major US national parks
Private planes will transport you from park to park and the best guides will take you off the beaten track, always a challenge in the parks. And for all of Aman’s junkies, we have two trips planned. (You’re welcome.) When can you go? You should book now, but you will need a little patience: many hotels and park lodges are full until mid-August.

A 14-day adventure-filled safari in Zambia
If you yearn for Africa’s great outdoors and wildlife, but worry about the hassle (nowadays) of multiple border crossing protocols, pick just one country. Peaceful and stable Zambia has 1) one of the richest and most diverse concentrations of wildlife on the continent; 2) the great (and exciting) Zambezi River; and 3) a wonder of the world — Victoria Falls. All this in the palm of your hand (plus a few tourists). When can you go? Zambian borders are open to travelers, but you need a visa in advance.
