Sherpa Everest

I would like to say that I was thoroughly impressed with your operations in Nepal. Everything ran wonderfully smoothly. Ramesh, our leader, was particulary brilliant. He was unimposing and unobtrusive, but knew everything that was going on: from what each of ate each morning to how we all were coping with the trek. When I retun to the Himalaya I will not hesitate in travelling with World Expeditions and I will hope to travel with Ramesh again.

In search of the Emperor Penguin

Journey south to the incomparable Antarctic Peninsula, home to a vast array of wildlife and a dramatic landscape which never fails to astound. During our voyage we hope to catch sight of the majestic Emperor Penguin, and our itinerary will be built around this objective. We will reserve three days to visit the Emperor rookeries by helicopters if weather permits. Our voyage will take us beyond the fringes of the peninsula, venturing into the Weddell Sea where tabular icebergs stretch to the horizon. We'll visit Paulet Island - home to millions of Adelie penguins, and set foot on the continent at Brown Bluff, before visits to Half Moon Island and Deception Island. With regular shore excursions to walk among the many penguins and other wildlife, along with a fascinating and informative lecture program presented by our expert expedition crew, the wonder of the Antarctic is yours to discover.
