Everest Base Camp

Thank you for the best experience of my life. I couldn't fault anything on the trek and I had a ball. Our crew lead by Bir Sing were always smiling and helpful and this is what made the experience so great.

I never thought I'd laugh so and much and the bond that formed in such a short time between the crew and trekkers grew stronger everyday so much so that some of us didn't want to leave - it was hard to say goodbye.

Explore Antarctica

This voyage allows participants to get a comprehensive overview of the sheer beauty and abundant wildlife of the Antarctic Peninsula. As we set sail across the Drake Passage escorted by soaring seabirds we eagerly anticipate the sight of the first huge icebergs and the continent proper. Our first landing on King George Island will give us our first taste of Antarctica before continuing onto the Peninsula via the Bransfield and Gerlache Straits and Neko Bay. Besides the magnificent scenery you can expect to see a wide variety of wildlife including seals, whales and an abundance of penguin and other birdlife. Imagine walking straight into a wildlife documentary and you could well be on the volcanic Deception Island amongst a teeming colony of hundred's of thousands of Chinstrap Penguins. For the more adventurous in our group the option to kayak or dive in the cool calm waters and spend a night camping on the ice adds another dimension to the experience.
