Your summer set-jetting guide
We’ve all dreamed of walking in the footsteps of our on-screen heros, villians and love interests, and with set-jet tourism on the rise, turning this dream into reality has never been easier. Set-jetting has become so popular, in fact, that one in five travelers say they’ve journeyed to a destination purely because they saw it in a movie or on a TV show. To explore the locations of your favorite flicks, join us and plan the set-jetting adventure of a lifetime.
The Crown: England and Scotland
Set-jetting tours inspired by BAFTA award-winning series The Crown – filmed at some of England and Scotland’s most beautiful landmark sites – combine culture, food and history in one memorable trip. You can’t get more British than the royal family and The Crown portrays the world’s most famous dynasty with a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the early days of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
Pass the time waiting for the next series by embarking on your own royal tour of the British Isles, uncovering centuries of tradition at picturesque castles and royal peculiars such as Westminster Abbey, Windsor Castle and Balmoral Castle. Top off your experience by tucking into a quintessential English afternoon tea in London or sampling traditional Scottish delicacies like haggis.
Jurassic Park: Hawaii
The primeval Central Pacific island of Hawaii is known for its rugged landscapes, dramatic cliffs, waterfalls, volcanoes, tropical foliage and idyllic sandy beaches. As the home of both the Jurassic Park film franchise and TV series Lost, it’s also a popular set-jet destination.
Experience Ka’a’awa Valley, known as Hollywood's “Hawaii Backlot”, and explore the home of over 50 of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster movies and TV shows. Hop on one of the many organized tours, looking out for Jurassic Park’s fallen tree and Godzilla’s footprints. With movies and television series always in production here, you could even find yourself on the set of the next big blockbuster!
Mad Men: New York
Follow the footsteps of Mad Men’s Don and Betty Draper to experience the enigmatic world of 1960s’ New York on a nostalgic Mad Men set-jetting experience. Navigate world-renowned luxury department stores Bloomingdales and Bergdorf Goodman with a personal stylist for a glamorous makeover and tour key cultural sites like the MET and Guggenheim before sipping cocktails over jazz music at Bemelmans Bar.
Tomb Raider: Cambodia
Scale and conquer ancient temples in true Lara Croft style with a trip to the awe-inspiring Angkor complex in Cambodia. Ta Prohm, known to locals as “Tomb Raider Temple” and “Temple of Angelina Jolie”, is a mysteriously beautiful structure that’s slowly merging with the jungle as vast tree roots embrace its crumbling towers.
Originally a Buddhist monastery and university built by King Jayavarman VII in the 12th Century AD, the temple was sunken into the surrounding foliage after the downfall of the Khmer Empire. Today it’s a huge tourist attraction, where many visitors come to explore the cultural and religious ruins just as Jolie did. If you see yourself as the next Tomb Raider, Angkor is the perfect place to begin your transformation.
The Bridge: Denmark and Sweden
Touch down in Scandinavia and immerse yourself in the setting of the latest Nordic Noir-inspired urban crime drama series, The Bridge. Begin your travels on the cobbled streets of Copenhagen, Denmark, exploring the city’s canals and cafés before daring to cross the iconic Oresund Bridge where The Bridge’s murder took place.
The chilly crossing that connects Denmark and Sweden takes 40 minutes to complete and will lead you to Malmo, where you can peruse an impressive 20th-century art collection and explore cultural hubs like The Little Square. After concluding your investigation, journey on to complete your trip in one of Europe's most picturesque cities, Stockholm. Be sure to scale the vibrant buildings for unparalleled views of the city, the perfect way to end your Scandinavian adventure.
