There’s a very impressive sailing yacht that, due to the height of her masts (too tall for the Panama Canal’s bridges), circumnavigates the globe on traditional routes, accepting charters all along the way. Y.CO’s Aquijo (y.co; from €450,000 per week for up to 12 guests) is ideal for the balmier ports of call – Fiji and Southeast Asia – she’s visiting this winter. But consider Patagonia, too, where Aquijo was in January and could sail to again in early 2019.

Guests can chopper inland to trek glaciers or fly-fish pristine mountain streams with no one else around for miles. Forward planning is necessary for provisioning and weather, but few destinations will reward with more abundant reserves of those most sought-after luxuries – space and solitude.
