Annapurna Trek

What an absolutely wonderful time we had on the Annapurna Trek ...The WE staff and especially Dilli the tour leader were great. I canít speak highly enough of them. Dilli was very knowledgeable, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The cook did a great job. The food was plentiful and tasty.

From the time we left home until the time we got back everything ran smoothly. Even the weather was good. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Nepal and hope to get back there in the future...I have no hesitation in recommending WE to friends.

Russia's Ring of Fire

This expedition explores one of the most geologically active and biologically rich parts of the planet. Thelarge number of live volcanoes on the Kamchatka Peninsula and along the Kuril Islands, has earned thisregion the reputation of the Pacificís ĎRing of Fireí. This is a land of stunning bays and snow-cappedvolcanoes, whose alpine meadows and lowland forests support a great diversity of wildlife. The seas washing these isolated coasts are equally rich in life; they are among the most productive in the world, teeming with birds and marine mammals. Huge bird colonies dot the cliffs, and large seal rookeries are scattered along the coast. The volcanic Kuril Islands chain comprises 32 islands, stretching across the Bering Sea between Russia and Japan. On this voyage we focus on the extraordinary biodiversity of the area, and get to know the people that call this wild outpost home.
