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.

Tenerife on Foot

Tenerife is the highest island in the Atlantic and is the largest of the Canary Islands. Mount Teide (3718m), in the centre of the island is Spain's highest mountain and the third tallest volcano in the world. Your first view of the great volcano will be from the aeroplane window. A few days later you will be walking across the Caņadas del Teide, a massive crater of 16km diameter. From the ancient university town of La Laguna, the elegant resort of Puerto de la Cruz on the north coast, combined with the walking on Mount Teide make for a wonderful week. Ascend to the lava caves at the fascinating Roques de Garcia and explore the rugged Anaga peninsula - its top covered in ancient 'laurisilva' forest and majestic Canarian pines. This is an island walking adventure like no other.
