In case you are on a limitless budget when it comes to your next travel adventures, CNN has some ideas for how you can blow some serious cash — and have an amazing trip at the same time.
When it comes to over-the-top luxury, nothing is off limits, notes Chris Dwyer for CNN.
First on his list of the out of this world: Heli-hiking in Alaska.
“Jumping on a helicopter to start a hike may seem a bit like cheating, but there are few better ways to experience the majesty of Alaska's wilderness,” Dwyer suggests.
Another good budget buster: Spending some quality time in Aspen, Colo.
“Aspen needs no introduction as an exclusive vacation destination, and living the good life doesn't come much easier than at Castle Rim,” he writes. “Naturally, this 750 square-meter property boasts sweeping views toward the Aspen Highlands, but the facilities and interiors may keep you cozied up inside.”
These views are not going to come cheap: rates are around $18,000 to $25,000 per night.
And in Hawaii, Dwyer suggests a stay at the brand-new Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina. But don’t spring for the helicopter transfers or Mercedes-Maybach to take you from the airport to the resort. Make sure you book the yacht.
“The yacht boasts a private Sky Terrace where you can sleep out under the stars, but only after a seven-course dinner with Cristal and wine pairings at the chef's table presided over by executive chef Martin Knaubert,” he suggests.
