South America Panorama

Having just arrived back from our South America trip, we thought we drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our journey. Everything was as we expected and more!! The itenery itself was outstanding, the scenery and sites ... well photos just don't do it justice! The hotels we stayed in where better than we expected ... the tour guides where fantastic and very knowledgable. The tours and all the pick ups and transfers where spot on. There is now doubt in our mind to use World Expeditions again soon, it is now just a matter of finding the time (and of course a little money). Antarctica looks great!!!

High Trails of the Bernese Oberland

A stunning walk capturing the essence of Switzerland; emerald alpine lakes, soaring snow capped peaks, flower laden meadows and quaint wooden farm houses. The Bernese Oberland is a region dominated by high peaks, many over 4000m. Following a section of the Alpine Pass Route that crosses the country, the walk traverses from Lenk, known for its stunning variety of wildflowers across high passes to the famous ski resort, Grindelwald and Meiringen, lower down on the Aare River. From a variety of vantage points be rewarded with impressive views of vast glaciers, some of the highest peaks in Switzerland including the Eiger (3970m), Jungfrau (4158m) and Finsteraarhorn (4274m) while to the north glimpse the vast lakes surrounding Interlaken (Thunersee and Brienzersee). At night experience traditional Swiss alpine hospitality in the mountain huts designed to comfort weary walkers and feast on simple yet hearty cuisine.
