Sherpa Everest

The Sherpa Everest trip that I was on was just excellent. The Aussies , the leaders, cook, sherpas and porters were the best. I just wish we could have had one more beautiful day in Namche so we could have gone to the Everest Hotel. One of the days we walked through 7-8 inches of snow and unfortunately we did not see the mountains. That was a day to remember. The next day it was unbelievably clear in Namche but we had to start our return towards Lukla. All in all, it was great trip.

I was amazed how well I did on the Sherpa Everest trip and I believe the Aussies and the leader were amazed too. I believe it was the way the sherpas lead us up the hills. A nice slow and steady pace along with staying in Namche for two days. Keep up the good work.

Antarctic Spirit

A visit to the Antarctic Peninsula offers you a unique insight into a world of haunting beauty, along with unsurpassed wildlife viewing opportunities. This cruise includes regular landings on zodiacs where we walk among the multitude of penguin rookeries and seal colonies in the vicinity of Deception Island, Gerlache Strait, Paradise Bay and the Lemaire Channel. Accompanied by naturalist guide we explore the many sheltered bays and fjords of the region, whilst our time at sea is spent looking for whales, identifying numerous sea-birds and participating in informative lectures. Time permitting we hope to include visits to scientific stations and historical sites which brings an understanding of the adventurous nature of the early Antarctic explorers.
