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.

Cycle Sicily

A stunning cycle in south-east Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean. Journey by bike through the Val di Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage site and discover the most fascinating cities of the region. The tour starts in Caltagirone where you can climb the 142-step ceramic staircase. Visit the small fishing town of Marzamemi, Noto, the most important Baroque city in Sicily, and Syracuse, the ancient Greek capital. Throughout the ages Syracuse has been under Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, Swabian, Angevin and Spanish rule. It is now home to a charming mixture of people and outstanding monuments, some of which are still in use, such as the Greek Theatre. An active week which will see you immersed in the history, culture and unspoilt coastline of Sicily.
