Indian Himalaya Trek - Shepherd Centre

Thank you for this fantastic experience! India was an experience I am sure none of us will forget. The vitality, the colours, the food, the children and the most amazing sunsets. But most of all we will never forget the friendliness of the World Expeditions staff and their efforts in making sure we all had a wonderful time on our Trek.

We are all keen to travel with World Expeditions again sometime soon.

Exploring the Weddell Sea

A classic journey to the Weddell Sea, incorporating time in the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula. Accompanied by our experienced naturalists and guides who know the regions intimately we get a full appreciateion of this unique, pristine and dramatic region, as we enjoy the magnificent wildlife viewing opportunities that are available. WE expect to see mass numbers of sea birds, including 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. The Weddell Sea will always be remembered as the polar region that still echoes the ill-fated expedition of the great British polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. As we head south, the Peninsula becomes even more dramatic with towering icebergs, glistening unclimbed peaks and spectacular glaciers.
