Whether your lifelong desire is heli-skiing in the Canadian Rockies, gazing at the aurora borealis in Iceland, or going on a safari in South Africa, the experts at Black Tomato can help make such dreams a reality. According to the luxury tour operator, 78 percent of the items on people’s “bucket lists” are travel-related experiences. Its new Bucket List service, which launched in April, is designed to help clients create, plan, and execute the items on their personal lists of things to do before they die.
The Black Tomato website lets you browse a list of ultimate travel experiences and add them to your personal bucket-list page. Once your list is submitted, an assigned Bucket List manager will review and begin planning itineraries, noting specifications like the best season for each journey. The manager will then revisit the list every year to adjust it based on budgets, timing, age, and more. Once the list is ready, Black Tomato will mail you a hard copy of the first trip’s itinerary so that you can begin preparing for the adventure of a lifetime. Prices vary depending on the trip’s details. (www.blacktomato.com/bucket-list)
