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.

Jewels of the Arctic

This voyage offers wonderful opportunities for tundra and glacier walking, fjord exploration plus dramatic landscape and Arctic wildlife viewing. From Spitsbergen we cruise southwest across the Greenland Sea, spotting seabirds and admiring the east Greenland icepack that stretches north across the Arctic Ocean to the North Pole. The ice mass is home to Polar Bears, Narwhal Whales and walrus, providing a constant source of interest for all onboard. We’ll take as many opportunities as possible to use our zodiacs or sea kayaks to make landings on the Greenland coast. This strip of east coast is sparsely settled by small communities of Inuit hunters who eke out a living in one of the harshest environments on earth. Iceland, where we disembark, is one of the world’s youngest islands. Forged by fire and honed by ice, it is a geological treasure trove.
