To Paris With Horsepower - head to The Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe


Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe

We spent last Wednesday entertaining some of our customers at York Racecourse for the season’s first meet. As the May sun was beating down and empty magnums of Veuve Clicquot piling up, it struck me that for horse-racing enthusiasts nothing can beat watching these magnificent beasts tearing around the course with their jockeys driving them on.

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe takes place on the first weekend in October, is the pinnacle of the racing calendar and one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world.

You’ll doubtless have enjoyed many race meetings before, you’ve probably even been to the “Arc”. Track-side seats, check. All-day VIP hospitality, check. You’ve been there and done that.

At Fly Hummingbird we put together once-in-a-lifetime and authentic experiences for you to savour. We take your enjoyment to another level.

Following a chauffeur pick-up you will be driven to an airfield close to your home. You will travel to Paris by private jet hosted by an ex-racing star, someone who has been at the sharp end of their profession and will share their memories with you. In Paris you’ll stay in a carefully selected and well-placed hotel, you can leave this all to us, knowing that we get it right.

Our unique package includes:

  • Return private jet (e.g. Hawker or Cessna Citation II) to Paris Le Bourget from a conveniently located UK airfield of your choice

  • Outbound flight hosting favourite ex-jockey (examples include Frankie Dettori, Ruby Walsh, Richard Dunwoody, AP McCoy). Your party will greet him on-board, enjoy a champagne reception along with a light meal, hear about his career highlights before enjoying a Q&A and exclusive photos

  • 2 nights’ luxury accommodation in the centre of Paris

  • Return chauffer driven transport from airport to hotel

  • VIP entry to Longchamp: Access to the Finish Line & Parade Ring Enclosures, private viewing balcony with reserved seat, open champagne bar throughout the day, signature buffet meal, access to the Arc Gardens

Prices from £6,250 per person.
