Mt Kilimanjaro Trek

The walk up Kilimanjaro was absolutely amazing – a real personal challenge. I was fortunate enough to make it to the top and I have to say, the view from the top has to be the best view I have ever experienced. From Kili the safari was really stunning.

Around Spitsbergen - Kvitøya

The Svalbard Archipelago is home to some of the most wildlife rich islands of the Arctic region. The largest of these, Spitsbergen, is a vast wilderness that is home to an incredible array of flora and fauna, with its location just some 900kms south of the North Pole. The exhilaration of sighting Polar Bear as they roam the ice in search of food, watching the playful activities of Grey Seals or observing a group of walrus are just some of the highlights found on this voyage. 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 and down to the iceberg-strewn bay where our ship is dwarfed by the monumental landscape. The island’s bird life is prolific, with colonies of Little Auks, Black Guillemots, Brünnich’s Guillemots, Puffins and Arctic Skuas accessible to visitors. Dramatic cliffs, fjords, glaciers and an abundance of wildlife make this an unforgettable experience in the land of the midnight sun. On this voyage we hope to also include a landing at the rarely visited island of Kvitøya, which is the eastern most point of Denmark. The island is dominated by an icecap, which leaves a small area bare of ice and snow.
