Larapinta Trek

I thought I would just drop you a note and let you know that the Larapinta Trek George & I did a couple of weeks ago was absolutely sensational. The group, the weather, the scenery, the terrain, the food, the campsites, the stars at night, and not to forget our fabulous 2 guides, Max S!! and Victor Trail was just a holiday that will stay with us for a long time. The group of people was just fantastic and everyone just got on well and as for Max & Victor, if I ever plan another Australian adventure I will do my utmost to ensure one of them if not both were the guides, the nicest, funniest and most of all very professional fellows, they kept the group in great spirits and the knowledge they both have is just outstanding, especially Max for such a young fellow. They did a great job in camp setting everything out for us, all we had to do was enjoy it. I can't sign off without mentioning the food, what these 2 guys whipped up for us everyday, breakfast, lunch on the track was just unbelievable what they carried and dinner - always 3 courses and always different, I doubt anyone lost too much wait on this trek. It was just a great pleasure to have meet 2 such great fun fellows.
Now to go off and think about what I will do next !!!!

Bernese Oberland for Families

A walk through the stunning Bernese Oberland region in Switzerland in the company of families. Introducing younger family members to the delights of alpine walking in a landscape dominated by high peaks, many over 4000m is a truly rewarding experience. The walking route follows a figure of eight with Grindelwald, being the central point, along classic mountain trails to charming mountain refuges. There are numerous highlights as you walk with views from a variety of vantage points of vast glaciers that tumble from some of the highest peaks in Switzerland including the Eiger (3970m) and Jungfrau (4158m). The quality of overnight mountain huts is exceptional as is the nightly cuisine, ensuring you experience traditional Swiss alpine hospitality at its best.
