Snowshoer on Gariole de l'Alp, France

Snowshoeing in the Southern Alps

Very well organized treks in this remote region of the Alps. We were the only non-french tour group so not touristy at all, very quiet and peaceful. Great home-cooked food in the gites, plentiful supply of local beers and cheeses in the evenings. My first experience of snowshoeing but very easy to learn the best techniques and can be great fun racing in fresh snow.

Aerial view of Sigiriya Rock, Sri Lanka

Discovering Sri Lanka was a Joy.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable time from start to finish and would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see and experience Sri Lanka. The people were warm and welcoming and we were often to hear children call out ' hello, how are you ?' along the way when cycling or rafting. I think it must be the first phrase taught in school. Great variety of country and activities covered. Bus journeys passed by quickly with plenty rest stops for refreshments. We were looked after by the bus driver, helper and guide Roshan who would start the journey each morning giving a clear, helpful ,informative explanation of the day's activities and local customs. We travelled in February and had good weather except for one afternoon when torrential rain came down just as we were on the Elephant Safari. Lots of crazy careering about in jeeps and soaked as we had the roof open ( watch your cameras & phones stay dry ) but had a great if bumpy time. Was rewarding to see the elephants enjoying playing in the rain in the freedom of a natural habitat.

Patagonia Highlights

It is a bit of an effort to get to Patagonia but it is worth it. The Andes are majestic and the glaciers mesmerising. A two week tour really is not enough time to do justice to the area.

walking the amalfi coast - March 14-21

a really well laid out week of hiking. great day hikes that take you through beautiful countryside. There are a TON of stairs in nearly every day's hike, so be prepared for that. And March weather was pretty unstable, so I'd recommend going later in the year to have more wildflowers and higher chance of sunshine. The hotel that we stayed out was very homey and the food spectacular!

A Steamy Fortnight

Wasn't sure what to expect other than heat, although I must admit at times even the humidity surprised me (travelled in February). Normally I go to sleep in the small hours but each day was so busy with varied activities that I was happy to turn in after dinner.

Cross-country skiing at Espedalen, Norway

Espedalen Cross Country Skiing 1st to 8 8th March 2015

The first two days of the trip had the best skiing I have ever enjoyed anywhere. This was helped by the metal edges on the cross country hire skis I was given. My rooms were spacious and comfortable and had controllable heating unlike so many places I have stayed with Waymark and Exodus in the past. The large bathroom had underfloor heating which was excellent for drying clothes. The cold water supply was from a mountain stream, so the tap water tasted better than all water form the tap at my home and better than most bottled water. The Thai food cooked by our hostess Surina was outstanding, better than most Thai restaurants. She and her assistant also did very well to cater for the diverse requirements of her guests some of whom required gluten free, some no fish, and some were vegetarians. Stefan was an exceptional host, helping to cut tracks for skiing, and on Wednesday 4th driving an hour to Lillehammer and back on the same day twice, to visit the hospital with injured skiers. The second time he waited with me while I was being treated, helping to keep my morale up by listening to my rambling conversation, while I was under the influence of first shock, and then hospital administered morphine.

Crazy Marrakesh and Wonderful Mountain Walks

On the one hand a wonderful sophisticated urban mix of frenetic souk sellers, beautiful palaces, peaceful gardens and mosques, crazy street life; and on the other a rural mountain village idyll with clean air, stunning views, rushing streams, mules and baby goats.

Nevache snowshoeing

Excellent trip, rewarded with some spectacular views. Yves the guide was brilliant and made the most of the days that we had good snow conditions and sunshine. All the mountain huts were located in remote and beautiful locations.

Classic Vietnam and Angkor Wat

Travel time is minimised but this trip still packs alot in. There are some free afternoons but tempting optional experiences soon fill the time. We were made very welcome by everyone we met.
