The Green Bay Packers and Fox World Travel are teaming up to offer the Packers Leadership Travel Series, the ultimate Packers travel experience featuring present and past team leaders.
Beginning in 2016, fans can participate in trips highlighted by premium accommodations, special events and vibrant destinations. The tours are aimed to be both inspirational and educational, with leadership insight from Packers executives and leaders, such as former Packers general manager and Pro Football Hall of Famer Ron Wolf.
The first trip, an eight-day river cruise through the heart of southern France, will feature Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. In addition to providing an elite river cruise experience with incomparable wines, art, cuisine and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, travelers will be able to socialize and participate in events with Murphy.
"I'm really excited about the cruise, and look forward to getting to know this beautiful, historic part of Europe," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "The setting will be a unique opportunity to connect with Packers fans and share some of my experiences with the organization."
The Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection sailing aboard the 159-passenger S.S. Catherine will depart the week of April 10, 2016, and will sail from Avignon to Lyon through France's Burgundy and Provence region on the Rhone and Saone rivers. Picturesque landscapes, lively markets, medieval wonders and the welcoming Mediterranean coast highlight this exclusive travel experience.
"We're so excited to have the opportunity to work with the Green Bay Packers to develop such a unique travel series showcasing some of the world's most spectacular destinations and to share leadership skills that have made the Green Bay Packers one of the world's most renowned sports franchises," said Brian Hurley, Vice President & General Manager-Vacation Travel Division for Fox World Travel.
