I'm little bit confused of using later and after to mention a specific time in the future. For example, I wanted to say:

I'll be on a vacation for 3 days after precisely 21 days.

Can I also say that:

  • I'll be on a vacation for 3 days 3 weeks later.
  • I'll be on a vacation for 3 days after 3 weeks.
  • I'll be on a vacation for 3 days in 3 weeks.

later adverb : at some time subsequent to a given time - M-W

after adverb : following in time or place - M-W

in preposition 3b : at the end of (a period of time) I'll be there in a minute. - M-W

Use the third option, "in 3 weeks". The other two options sound better with an explicit starting time-reference.
