Burgundy Cycle

I had a very good time in France. The trip was well organized and the scenery beautiful, we travelled through some wonderfull villages and tasted some great wines. I would certainly consider arranging another trip through U-tracks and will suggest using you guys to any friends or colleagues that I can.

Antarctica & South Georgia - Photography Special

We commence our voyage to the Antarctic, crossing the Drake Passage and exploring the western flanks of the Antarctic Peninsula . Here we have time for regular shore excursions to walk among the many penguins and seals, and visit the scientific stations. Heading north towards Sourh Georgia we will attempt to land on the wild and spectacular Elephant Island. South Georgia is without doubt an island of incomparable beauty. The northern flanks of the island comprise of a series of harbours that once sheltered large fleets of whaling ships, and are now home to a staggering variety and profusion of wildlife. Our time in South Georgia will be spent visiting rookeries with literally thousands of King, Macaroni and Rockhopper Penguins. Leaving South Georgia we sail to the Falkland Islands before sailing across the Scotia Sea to Ushuaia where our trip concludes.
