Antarctic Explorer

Just a belated thank you to World Expeditions for the wonderful trip to the Antarctic my sister and I joined last December. From the first day, it was agreed that 1 day on a plane and 2 1/2 days on a ship was a small price to pay to have the chance to enjoy such an amazing experience. The ship was comfortable and crewed by an excellent staff; the size of the vessel was perfect to allow maximum opportunity for the four dozen or so passengers to enjoy the experience (contrasted to many of the other vessels we saw in port in Ushuaia).
Furthermore, the guides provided were professional, knowledgeable and friendly, adding to the great atmosphere of the journey. Our fellow travellers were an outgoing and welcoming bunch too, which made for a wonderful time. I wholeheartedly commend World Expeditions to anyone as a first rate provider of adventure travel - I can't wait for my next opportunity to try another experience (perhaps Kenya at a quiet moment). My sincere thanks to the team.

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.
