Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar

I just wanted to drop you folks a note and let you know that I had a wonderful time one the Everest trek in Nepal. World Expeditions did an awsome job from start to finish. The level of professionalism and care that was given each and everyone of us was just beyond words. I would also like to mention our group leader Bir Singh. He is an increadible leader in every aspect. From diplomat to medical expert you have an asset that really goes beyond the call. If you have any type of employee of the month or year he gets my vote for sure!

Antarctic Peninsula Basecamp

Crossing the Antarctic Convergence and heading into the Southern Ocean via the fabled Drake Passage, this voyage will explore the spectacular wildlife and vast expanses of the Antarctic Peninsula. This program is unique as it provides the opportunity to explore a pocket of the Peninsula with varied active means, including kayaking, snowshoeing, climbing and zodiac cruising. Our vessel will become our floating basecamp - a warm and comfortable haven to return to after adventuring ashore. There is no shortage of photographic possibilities, and our workshops will help you to reflect the natural beauty of this ice-bound land to best effect. Whether enjoying the surreal landscapes or participating in one of the activities on offer, the wonder of the Antarctic is yours to discover. Ever popular is the option to camp on the ice; an experience which will create memories to last a lifetime. Those who prefer a more relaxed journey can 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.
