Nepal - Community Project Travel

From beginning to the end the trip was fantastic. We had two wonderful guides with completely different strengths. Both leaders were very professional and caring. The trek was magnificent. It was well worth climbing to see the wonderful views once we reached Namche Bazaar. Our guides were wonderful. They did a great job of looking out for us on the trek and a fantastic job of looking after us in camp. The food was amazing. The porters were also really friendly and helpful and deserve medals for lugging all our gear around.


The local villagers at Jumbesi made us feel really welcome and put on a special dinner at the monastery. We were overwhelmed with the welcome they gave us and also the thank you. We had a great bunch of other trekkers on the trip and we were all matched up well with our room mates. We were very lucky with the weather and had day after day of awe inspiring views. There is not one bad thing that I can say about the trip. The trip was a life changing experience and I would love to do it all again. I would like to thank everyone involved. And I hope that one day I get to travel again with World Expeditions.

Polar Circle and Antarctic Peninsula

We will cross the Antarctic Convergence into the Southern Ocean via the fabled Drake Passage to explore this remote continent with its spectacular wildlife. This program sets the added goal to cruise south of the Antarctic Polar Circle that for many is the ultimate accomplishment. Our aim is to combine our voyage to the Peninsula with a crossing of the fabled Antarctic Circle at 66°33’. There are no shortage of photographic possibilities or one can simply savour the natural beauty of this ice-bound land. Whether enjoying the surreal landscapes or participating in one of the activities on offer the wonder of the Antarctic is yours to discover. There is ample time to utilise the ship’s fleet of zodiacs to explore the rich diversity of wildlife that flourishes in the sheltered bays, clustered castles of icebergs and steep glaciers that characterise the shoreline.
