Annapurna and Tilicho Lake

What a fantastic trip! Really really great, what an adventure and what a fantastic team we had looking after us! There was never any doubt that we were save and more than well cared for. I was absolutely amazed at how easy and little fuss was made over my dietary requirements. They were reconfirmed at the beginning and that was the last I heard of it, it was all sorted. I have stayed in 5 star hotels in the past where ensuring my food was wheat and dairy free was a big hassle, yet your team managed to make it entirely easy and hassle free despite being in the back of beyond - I honestly can not praise them high enough.

Antarctica and the Polar Circle

We will cross the Antarctic Convergence into the Southern Ocean via the fabled Drake Passage to explore this remote continent with its spectacular wildlife. This program sets the added goal to cruise south of the Antarctic Polar Circle that for many is the ultimate accomplishment. Our aim is to combine our voyage to the Peninsula with a crossing of the fabled Antarctic Circle at 66°33’. There are no shortage of photographic possibilities or one can simply savour the natural beauty of this ice-bound land. Whether enjoying the surreal landscapes or participating in one of the activities on offer the wonder of the Antarctic is yours to discover. There is ample time to utilise the ship’s fleet of zodiacs to explore the rich diversity of wildlife that flourishes in the sheltered bays, clustered castles of icebergs and steep glaciers that characterise the shoreline.
