Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar

I just wanted to drop you folks a note and let you know that I had a wonderful time one the Everest trek in Nepal. World Expeditions did an awsome job from start to finish. The level of professionalism and care that was given each and everyone of us was just beyond words. I would also like to mention our group leader Bir Singh. He is an increadible leader in every aspect. From diplomat to medical expert you have an asset that really goes beyond the call. If you have any type of employee of the month or year he gets my vote for sure!

South Atlantic Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula on Ortelius

This voyage encompasses all the sub Antarctic highlights and offers the chance to see up to six penguin species. We will cruise to the Falkland Islands, where on the western side of the archipelago, we will discover Black-Browed Albatross sharing their colony with sturdy Rockhopper Penguins and explore Port Stanley, the capital of the Falklands. We then cruise to South Georgia, an area boasting a huge diversity of mammals, whales and birds. The island comprises of a series of harbours that once sheltered large fleets of whaling ships. In South Georgia we plan to visit Stromness Bay, the King Penguin colonies on Salisbury Plain, Grytviken (Whaling History Museum) as well as Shackleton's grave. Combine this with the natural wonders of the South Orkney Islands and the spectacular Antarctic Peninsula and you have the makings of a truly memorable voyage. If the ice permits we will sail into the Weddell Sea through the ice-clogged Antarctic Sound. Exploring the western flanks of the Antarctic Peninsula provides a further highlight, the icy realm of the true Antarctic a marked contrast to our earlier explorations. With regular shore excursions providing the opportunity to stretch our legs while enjoying the wildlife and visiting fascinating scientific stations, this voyage truly has it all.
