Abercrombie & Kent

Photo:

What started as a boutique safari outfit in the Kenyan bush has evolved into a full-fledged luxury adventure brand. Abercrombie & Kent offers tours on all seven continents, leads private-jet journeys, and operates an invitation-only travel club. Added this year are A&K Extreme Adventures, which run the gamut from relatively soft (a Belize multisport) to hard as they come (an 18-day ski to the South Pole).
