Langtang Trek

I had a really enjoyable time and it was good to see another part of Nepal...I very much enjoyed Bardia NP.... As always with WE everything went as planned my guide Jagdish was worth every rupee. It was also good to experience the tea house style of trekking and, while there are numerous advantages, I think that for me at least, tents are the future! (There did seem to be an endless amount of not very well people in the lodges that I have never experienced in tents and I can only eat so much rice and dal).

Antarctic Encounter

This expedition offers you the ideal introduction to the Great White continent. Albatross and petrels will escort us across the Drake Passage until we spot our first huge icebergs and we eagerly anticipate land. Our first landing on King George Island will give us our first taste of Antarctica before continuing onto the Peninsula via the Bransfield and Gerlache Straits and Neko Bay. Besides the magnificent scenery you can expect to see a wide variety of wildlife including seals, whales and an abundance of penguin and other birdlife. Imagine walking straight into a wildlife documentary and you could well be on the volcanic Deception Island amongst a teeming colony of hundred's of thousands of Chinstrap Penguins. As we head further south the magnificence of the natural beauty of Antarctica takes your breath away.
