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.

A Taste of the Wicklow Way

Situated on the outskirts of Dublin is County Wicklow, a region of largely uninhabited landscapes and home to a network of unspoilt mountain trails that cut through what is arguably the greenest part of the 'Emerald Isle'. The Wicklow Way has attracted walkers from across the world eager to experience this stunning region's patchwork of landscapes which include country estates, picturesque valleys, heather-covered granite mountains, rolling green hills and tranquil forests. Following a series of way-marked trails, this short walk runs along the eastern escarpment connecting many of the most scenic parts of Wicklow, such as Powerscourt Demesne and Djouce Mountain as well as the jewel of Wicklow, the monastic settlement at Glendalough. At Glendalough there is the option to enjoy one of the most spectacular walks along the Wicklow Way; a steep climb to the Spink viewpoint from where you can gain a bird's eye view of Glendalough as well as appreciate the superb glacial valley below.
