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.

Sweden: Archipelago Cycle Adventure

Explore by bike Stockholm's southern archipelago with its more than 24,000 islands stretching 80km east of Stockholm to the Baltic Sea. With their abundant nature reserves, colourful wooden houses and sandy beaches, the islands offer exceptional cycling opportunities particularly in summer when the island life is buzzing. From Tyresta National Park where moose and deer roam freely, travel between the islands to take in the views, visit historic landmarks, swim or kayak and hike forest trails. Returning to Stockholm by boat, watch the transformation from uninhabited islands to the urban clusters of the city. At night stay in atmospheric hotels often with superb views over the islands and housed in historic buildings.
