Magara Primary School Project

I am writing to let you know how much I enjoyed the recent trip to the Magara secondary school project in Tanzania and how wonderful the World Expeditions staff were. Our guide was a fantastic source of information and really helped us a great deal but also allowed us a lot of freedom to work things out for ourselves. The group was great and we hope to keep in contact as much as possible. The staff at the secondary school and the students were memorable and I wish them all the best and also to the people who attend the project next year.

Finland: Self-Guided Cycling Holidays and Small Group Guided Adventures

Finland is a country of contrasts. From endless daylight in the summer to the still, wintry darkness of the polar night, the characteristics of Finland’s seasons shed insight into the Finns’ inclination to pursue the odd and extreme.

Completed by the melancholic harmony of autumn leaf colors and the astonishing rebirth of nature in the spring, the four seasons have a profound effect on life in Finland and its rather peculiar inhabitants.

Culturally, Finland is a unique mix of East and West. Not really Scandinavian, nor a part of the Baltics or Eastern Europe, Finland is the black sheep of Northern Europe. Famous for Santa Claus, Nokia and saunas, Finns actually enjoy sitting in a heated box and, upon reaching boiling point, running outside and rolling in the snow!

Although known for advancements in technology and progressive urban solutions, many Finns spend their free time in touch with Mother Nature. With almost 200 000 lakes and half a million summer cottages in the country, there’s a lot of room to retreat to the countryside to enjoy hiking, trekking, Nordic walking or even cross-country skiing.
