Annapurna & Everest Trek

Well the treks were a sensation, and all input by World Expeditions was faultless. The planning, all the personal, and the complete itinerary were superb. The scenery was spectacular. The people were so friendly. My highlights were- the day walking back to the bus from Landruk through all the beautiful villages and farms, getting to Everest Base Camp, and the views from Gokyo Ri and Kala Pattar. Thanks again for all your input to a superb month in Nepal.

Polar Circle Explorer

A unique journey encompassing the South Shetland Islands & the Antarctic Peninsula, with an objective to cross the Polar Circle, aboard the comfortable research vessel, the Ushuaia. You will be accompanied by our experienced naturalist who knows this region so well. We fully appreciate this unique, pristine and dramatic region, and enjoy the magnificent wildlife viewing opportunities that are available. Albatross soaring over the Drake Passage, huge penguin colonies on the South Shetland Islands, and the whales and seals that frequent these icy polar waters. Imagine following in the footsteps of the world's greatest explorers, and time permitting visit a scientific base. As we head south, the Peninsula becomes even more dramatic with towering icebergs, glistening unclimbed peaks and spectacular glaciers. No trip is ever the same, and seeing is believing in this wonderland of rock and ice.
