Nepal - Community Project Travel

From beginning to the end the trip was fantastic. We had two wonderful guides with completely different strengths. Both leaders were very professional and caring. The trek was magnificent. It was well worth climbing to see the wonderful views once we reached Namche Bazaar. Our guides were wonderful. They did a great job of looking out for us on the trek and a fantastic job of looking after us in camp. The food was amazing. The porters were also really friendly and helpful and deserve medals for lugging all our gear around.


The local villagers at Jumbesi made us feel really welcome and put on a special dinner at the monastery. We were overwhelmed with the welcome they gave us and also the thank you. We had a great bunch of other trekkers on the trip and we were all matched up well with our room mates. We were very lucky with the weather and had day after day of awe inspiring views. There is not one bad thing that I can say about the trip. The trip was a life changing experience and I would love to do it all again. I would like to thank everyone involved. And I hope that one day I get to travel again with World Expeditions.

Sailing Around Spitsbergen

This epic adventure with a small group of just 20 passengers will sail aboard the basic but comfortable schooner, the Noorderlicht. Manned by a skilled crew and expert naturalist/expedition leader, this voyage involves some participation with the handling of sails, taking the helm or being on watch during the night. Our journey will endeavour to sail around Spitsbergen, a vast wilderness, which is home to an incredible array of flora and fauna located just some 900kms south of the North Pole. Dramatic geological formations, a plethora of wildlife species and verdent summer flora make for a spectacular introduction to life in the Arctic.These voyages are dependent on the weather and the sea conditions, therefore the itinerary is only an outline.

Brief Itinerary

DAY 1 Embark Longyearbyen
DAY 2 Alkhornet
DAY 3 Smeerenburg
DAYS 4/15 Cruising Spitsbergen
DAY 16 Disembark Longyearbyen where trip concludes. Programs may vary depending on local ice and weather conditions and in order to take advantage of opportunities to see wildlife. Flexibility is paramount on expeditions.

traveller reviews

Most memorable parts of the trip were: seeing the Northern Lights on the first and second nights on board the ship, seeing a bear on the first morning, and walking onto a glacier.
