Mera Peak, Nepal

Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks for all that you both did to get us up Mera Peak!

It made for the BEST (and most challenging) holiday, and we are singing the praises of World Expeditions to all we know.

Look forward to travelling with you again

Classic South Georgia

This voyage cruises to the Falkland Islands visiting West Point Island, where the Black-Browed Albatross share their colony with sturdy Rockhopper Penguins, as well as discovering Port Stanley, the capital of the Falklands. We then cruise to South Georgia, a region 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. Four days are spent in South Georgia, visiting 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 spectacular Antarctic Peninsula and you have the makings of a truly memorable voyage. Our exploration of the western flanks of the Antarctic Peninsula is a further highlight and regular shore excursions provide the opportunity to learn about the abundant wildlife. Your expedition team will show you busy penguin colonies and spectacular seabirds, seals and whales amidst imposing mountain ranges, ice-filled channels, and beautifully shaped icebergs and glaciers. The historical aspects of this fascinating place do not go unexplored, with planned visits to huts to discover more about the human endeavours which were played out on the canvas of this vast white continent.
