Annapurna Trek

This was my second time to Nepal with World Expeditions and previously trekked to Mardi Himal Base Camp. This trip I saw it through my fiancé’s eyes and it gave me such joy to see her so engaged with the culture and natural beauty of Nepal. From being a little apprehensive she has, through the whole WE and Nepalese experience, been converted to an adventure traveller. Ramesh and the team made us feel so special at Christmas and baked all of us a cake for Christmas Eve. A Christmas filled with so much joy and spirit – very special indeed.

I have already started to look at the latest brochure and planning future treks and have been reading with interest about the work you have been undertaking on the camp sites in the Everest region. Congratulations on such a great initiative. As the Head of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability for one of Australia’s largest property groups (DEXUS Property Group) I take a keen interest in the work that you do in this area.

Lofoten Orca Voyage

The Lofoten Orca voyages take place in the northern autumn, when the days are getting shorter in northern Norway. The autumn colours will be beautiful during the day time and at night, we will hope to admire the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). This is a wonderful introduction to coastal Norway and the beautiful fjords, islands and wildlife in this region. In the second half of October and in November we have good chances to see Orca, that scour these fjords to hunt for Herring. We shall also enjoy the area on foot with walks to view Stone Age petroglyphs, Sea Eagles, and historical villages such as Kabelvaag and Henningsvaer - the 'Norwegian Venice'. Our small group of 20 passengers will sail aboard the basic but comfortable schooner, the Noorderlicht. Manned by a skilled crew and expert naturalist/expedition leader, this voyage involves some participation with the handling of sails, taking the helm or being on watch during the night. The Lofoten voyages are dependent on the weather and the sea conditions, therefore the itinerary is only an outline.
