South America Panorama

Having just arrived back from our South America trip, we thought we drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our journey. Everything was as we expected and more!! The itenery itself was outstanding, the scenery and sites ... well photos just don't do it justice! The hotels we stayed in where better than we expected ... the tour guides where fantastic and very knowledgable. The tours and all the pick ups and transfers where spot on. There is now doubt in our mind to use World Expeditions again soon, it is now just a matter of finding the time (and of course a little money). Antarctica looks great!!!

Haute Route & Mont Blanc

One of the greatest alpine journeys, the Haute Route, stretches from Chamonix in the French Alps to Zermatt, in the Swiss Alps. On this tour we venture off the main trails into the heart of the alps, trekking across glaciers with magnificent mountain backdrops such as the Matterhorn. During the Haute Route Traverse, we not only learn basic mountaineering skills but most importantly we are well acclimatised before attempting our climb on Mont Blanc. To join this expedition you will need a very good level of fitness with good walking and scrambling experience. Previous mountaineering is an advantage, however not essential and this compact itinerary should more than satisfy all aspiring mountaineers.
