Overland Track

Our guides Victor & Matt made the trip – we were novice long distance walkers & inexperienced campers but their patience and understanding was greatly appreciated and has encouraged us to look forward to future treks. Thanks so much for making our 29th Wedding Anniversary so memorable.

We have relived our Tassie walk many times over – in fact each time we‘re back in the bush memories flood back from our trip Thanks once again to the staff for a fabulous adventure.

Maldives

Maldives

Take an adventure sailing holiday to the MALDIVES with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.


The Maldives are located southwest of Sri Lanka, on the equator and consist of 1,190 coral islands, forming an archipelago of 26 major atolls. The Maldives stretch 820 kilometers north to south and 120 kilometers east to west. Only 202 of the 1190 islands are inhabited and of these 87 are exclusive resort islands.

The origins of the Maldivian’s are lost in antiquity, but history reveals that the islands have been populated for over 3,000 years ago. Early settlers were travellers on the Silk Route and from the Indus Valley Civilization. Inherently warm, friendly and hospitable by nature, it is easy to feel comfortable and relaxed with a Maldivian.

On World Expeditions sailing adventures in the Maldives you will swim and snorkel the magical waters coming face to face with the amazing plethora of sea life. During the day your boat will cruise between islands, and at night your boat will moore off remote islands with small settlements, a world away from the resorts.

The Weather in Maldives

The Maldives enjoys a hot tropical climate. There are two monsoons, the southwest from May to October and the northeast from November to April. Generally the southwest brings more wind and rain in June and July. The temperature of Maldives ranges between 24°C and 33°C throughout the year. Although the humidity is relatively high, the constant sea breezes help to keep the air moving.

The best time to visit is November to April. It is advised to wear lightweight cottons and linens throughout the year and pack light waterproofs are advised during the rainy season.
