Morocco Adventure

King’s Bruton has enjoyed an excellent partnership with World Expeditions for many years. As part of our popular Gap Year Programme we rely exclusively on WE for the management of our fund raising expeditions each year. We have experienced nothing but professionalism, dependability and commitment to our ethos. At the locations of our expeditions we have found the local ground agents to be highly reliable and well respected in their communities. World Expeditions have delivered first rate experiences for our teams in North Africa and we look forward to many more years of effective partnership.

Cycle Myanmar

Few can argue that Myanmar is a gem of a destination. We explore at handle bar level this welcoming land, which until recently, has been relatively undiscovered by westerners. After flying to Mandalay, our cycling adventure starts in earnest with a ride on the outskirts before returning by boat on the Irrawaddy River. Continuing through timeless villages, we observe traditional lifestyles enroute to Bagan, home to one of the finest collection of temples in South East Asia. Exploring at a gentle pace, this magnificent region uncovers ancient pagodas and temples of a bygone era with intricate carvings, murals and astonishing architecture. At sacred Mount Popa the abode of 'Nats', known as 'Spirits of Ancient Ancestors' we leave our bikes and climb the 700 steps for stunning panoramic views from the golden temple at its summit. Last but not least, Inle Lake with its bustling local markets, handicrafts and stilted villages provides a perfect and relaxing conclusion to this inspiring adventure.

traveller reviews

Thank you for providing a well organised, active, culturally eye opening tour around Myanmar. The people were friendly and the scenery varied and spectacular. I haven't been fed this well since... my last World Expeditions trip! The most memorable part was climbing an ancient pagoda to watch the sun set slowly over hundreds of ancient temples Old Bagan. The view from Mt. Popa over the stunning Taung Kalat was a very close second!
