Kokoda Track

From beginning to end, this expedition was perfection in all aspects of its organisation. Particular praise must be given to the trek leader Mr Lawrence Applebee. His dedication, knowledge and leadership abilities were instrumental in its success.

Trans Tyrol - Garmisch to Innsbruck

The border between Austria and Germany is home to two exceptional mountain regions; the Bavarian Alps and the Tyrol, a mountainous area extending from Austria through to northern Italy. Isolated for long periods, this region is home to the Wetterstein and Karwendel Mountain ranges with their pristine alpine landscapes and a well maintained network of walking trails. The hike from Garmisch in Bavaria to Innsbruck in Austria is demanding at times and requires a good level of experience in alpine terrain. Impressive gorges and balcony trails, Schachen Castle, the Olympic towns of Garmisch and Innsbruck and the Karwendel Massif National Park are a few of the highlights of this walking holiday. Staying in a combination of atmospheric mountain cabins and country hotels, this trip offers a perfect balance of comfort and alpine hiking.
