Sikkim Bhutan Trek

What a wonderful time we had on our trip! It was so well organised...from all World Expeditions' help at the planning stage to the actual trip itself. In particular, we absolutely loved the trekking and that was largely due to our fantastic guide Norboo. He was so focused on our having a great experience...from the food (our requests were always fufilled) to our comfort on the trek, and our safety.

North Spitsbergen on Ortelius in search of Polar Bear

Located just 900kms from the North Pole, and home to the world's most northerly serttlement, the island of Spitsbergen is a vast wilderness, which is home to an incredible array of flora and fauna. Dramatic geological formations, a plethora of wildlife species and verdent summer flora make for a spectacular introduction to life in the Arctic. Our focus on this journey is the pursuit of Polar Bear as they make there way along the retreating ice in search for food. We will also have time to experience the many other species of wildlife who call the region home and our zodiacs will ferry us from our ice-strengthened vessels to shore to walk amongst the tundra up to high points where there are sweeping views across the vast glaciated inland.
