Expeditions and Adventures

Join us in an eclectic series of adventures and treks through our fragile earth

In addition to our dive and safari tours, we offer a limited selection of expeditions and adventures. These include Antarctica Dive trips, Trekking to the Everest Base Camp, Trekking in the Nepal Himalaya and Silk Road Discovery tours. People sometimes ask why we offer such an eclectic mixture of tours, and the answer is quite simple. These are eclectic adventure tours that we have been asked run by our former clients. Having been on the Silk Road holiday or in the Antarctic Tour, different members of our team have fallen in love with each of these adventure tours.

The Silk Road Discovery tour, is a simple and affordable way of exploring Uzbekistan, Western China and Kirgizstan. We offer a series of Tailor made Central Asia Tours that are not heavy on the pocket and yet take in the most famous cultural sights of Uzbekistan. The tour takes seven days and includes a domestic flight and your own car and driver. Starting in Tashkent and traveling through the ancient cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and ending in Khiva this is our favourite. Check out our Uzbekistan pages for more details, or simply send us an email using the form below.

The Nepal Himalaya is one of life’s must-sees and dos. The most famous Trek is the Everest Base Camp Trek, but we feel the Chukung Rii Trek or the three passes Trek is more rewarding. There are three valleys in the Solo Khumbu region, and all are spectacular. Why not start in The Everest Valley, cross the Cho La to the Gokyo Valley, climb Gokyo Rii and then cross the Renjo La and enter the verdant green Thame Valley. All of this can be done in two to three weeks. Descend back down to Namche Bazaar and Lukla for your flight back to Kathmandu? Interested? Read more details on our Himalayan Trekking page, or if you are ready, shoot us an email to book your Himalayan Trekking Holiday now.

The Antarctic is the final frontier. Our Antarctic Tours are more of an Antarctic expedition than an Antarctic holiday. The only way to access the Antarctic is by boat. We use Oceanwide Expeditions, and their fleet of ice-strengthened exploration vessels, the MV Plancius and MV Ortelius. Our Antarctic Adventure Tour can include Antarctic Diving, Antarctic Kayaking or simply include a series of landings on some of the most fascinating points of the Antarctic Continent. We run one escorted antarctic trip every two years but we have guaranteed departures all throughout the Antarctic Summer, which is the European Winter.
