Antarctic Explorer

Just a belated thank you to World Expeditions for the wonderful trip to the Antarctic my sister and I joined last December. From the first day, it was agreed that 1 day on a plane and 2 1/2 days on a ship was a small price to pay to have the chance to enjoy such an amazing experience. The ship was comfortable and crewed by an excellent staff; the size of the vessel was perfect to allow maximum opportunity for the four dozen or so passengers to enjoy the experience (contrasted to many of the other vessels we saw in port in Ushuaia).
Furthermore, the guides provided were professional, knowledgeable and friendly, adding to the great atmosphere of the journey. Our fellow travellers were an outgoing and welcoming bunch too, which made for a wonderful time. I wholeheartedly commend World Expeditions to anyone as a first rate provider of adventure travel - I can't wait for my next opportunity to try another experience (perhaps Kenya at a quiet moment). My sincere thanks to the team.

Best of the Algarve

Portugal's Algarve has long been known for its picturesque beaches, lively towns and laid back lifestyle. Away from the tourist centres there is a huge interior that sees very few visitors and a spectacular coastline that remains unspoilt. This walking route offers a wide variety of terrain from mountains and cliff tops, to valleys and coastal ridges. En route view the wonderful diverse flora and fauna and experience first hand the friendliness of the local people. Staying in handpicked family hotels there is plenty of time in the evening to soak up the atmosphere of traditional villages.
