What's the translation of “junket” in French?

From https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/junket (mirror):

Informal. An extravagant trip or celebration, in particular one enjoyed by government officials at public expense. Example: ‘the latest row over city council junkets’.

I looked at a few dictionaries but found nothing.

I'm afraid there is in French no short one word term for "junket". The long term that will do as a translation is "voyage officiel aux frais de la princesse".

Of course, you can also say "voyage officiel aux frais du contribuable", but it's not sarcastic.
