Trails of Vietnam

Vietnam 2015

A comprehensive trip covering many aspects and places of Vietnam from Hanoi to Saigon. The trip included several days of moderately intense activities such as hiking, bicycling and kayaking. Areas visited included large cities to small isolated villages. Other modes of travel were a day and night on a boat and train.

Finnish Wilderness Week

One of the best

5
You may be in the wilderness, but if you like adventure you will run out of time before things to do. I loved the dog sledging (you can have your own sledge and dog team), the snow shoeing, the cross country skiing, the sledging etc. There is also the option for extra's and I'd recommend the skiing in Rukha and full day dog sledging. There is plenty of option for free extra's too as you can use the equipment to walk the bear route with snow shoes and do local cross skiing. You can get away with taking little cash and paying for most things by card at the end of the week. For a remote base camp the food is good, the room clean and warm with underfloor heating and the equipment good quality. The only down side is the taster sessions could have covered more ground e.g. the snow shoe taster guide session had a bit too much talking and not enough walking, but a few of us made up for it with a walk to village after. This was a small issue for an otherwise incredible trip.

Sierra de Aitana Trek

Challenging but rewarding!

5
This was a demanding but thoroughly enjoyable trip for a pair of novice walkers. It was our first ever walking holiday and as the trip loomed we were worried that we may have been a bit ambitious selecting a Moderate/Challenging trek despite doing a good amount of preparatory walking to get fit. The walking was tough with around 800-1000 metres of accent on each walk coupled to quite long days. A couple of our fellow travellers who had been on other ‘challenging’ grade trips mentioned that they thought this trek was more demanding. This is probably down to the fact that the terrain is very rocky and uneven in places and considerable sections of the walks were on rough trails which was quite hard on the feet. The ascents were generally not a problem and although hard work they were conducted at a civilised pace with everyone finding their own speed. There is an excellent balance to the days which were very satisfying with the hard work being rewarded by some fantastic views over the surrounding area, which is totally unspoilt and a world away from the costal resorts of Alicante and Benidorm. More importantly (I think) there was a heavy emphasis on refreshments in the evenings with plenty of food, wine and beer which I don’t think anyone felt the least bit guilty about indulging in after a day’s toil in the hills. The accommodation was very good. The first hotel was clean and basic with a good breakfast and dinner in the evenings. The second hotel, which I was expecting to be more remote and rustic, was Casa Roc in the lovely little village of Sella. This was a charming spot with clean and comfortable rooms and communal kitchen areas and terraces. The honesty bar with its seemingly inexhaustible supply of beer and wine was particularly popular. We didn’t find sharing facilities too much of an issue, we shared a bathroom with two other people and were quite happy to trade the earlier slot in the shower for an extra half hour in bed! The hosts Steve and Liz were very friendly and clearly work hard to keep their guests happy. Liz did a fantastic job producing delicious authentic Mediterranean meals for us in the evenings, no mean feat considering how many people she was catering for. Steve did an equally good job keeping the jugs of wine and the bread baskets topped up. There were 14 people in our group and without exception everyone was friendly and sociable and for us this really made the holiday that extra bit special. There were people who were obviously more experienced and fitter than us but they were very supportive and encouraging, especially when we expressed doubts about joining the group on the last day for the climb to the 1408 metre summit.

The holiday was well thought through and carefully run by the guide you provided. Each evening and lunchtime the food arrived as planned, whether we'd ordered and paid or had it or provided by you, or whether we'd arranged to go out to a restaurant you suggested. Great to see a foreign culture, nothing like I had experienced before. We experienced a great variety, including the atlantic coast, the carribean coast, the jungle, the mountains and a wide veriety of accomodation (all good).

Iceland Northern Lights

Unpredictable fun in the land of incredible landscapes

5
This trip was a fantastic and fun adventure from start to finish. I had no idea what to expect from the trip and was not used to cold weather climates but the unpredictable changes in the weather just added to the excitement. The itinerary was packed full of amazing sights including beautiful waterfalls, thermal geysirs, an iceberg lagoon, black sandy beaches, a swim in the blue lagoon and so much more. We also got looked after well each and every day, and where the planned schedule had to be adapted due to severe weather conditions, I still had an amazing time.

A very enjoyable holiday with a great variety of scenery. The trip is well planned with everyday bringing new discoveries and different experiences from small villages to large towns, remote hills, fertile plains and busy seaside locations. The local people are very friendly. I would happily repeat the whole journey.

Cross-country Skiing in the High Tatras

High Tatras Cross Country skiing

A great new venue for Exodus in this interesting country. Even in early March there was plenty of snow and the local guides made sure we got to see different locations. Foreign tourists were very few and far between and the country is still getting to grips with some aspects of winter sports tourism. Apart from the main downhill ski centre, the tracks are not groomed to the standard that I have seen in Alpine and Nordic venues. Also, unlike in other places, it is customary to hike and exercise dogs on the tracks which adds to the patchy ski conditions. Therefore, some experience in coping with off-track and rough terrain is advisable here.

Beginner cross country week in Espadalen

We have had a great week of learning to ski with Albert. He was very patient and was always happy to meet our various problems. Great instructor who never panicked. Fantastic accomodation(basic but relaxed and homely). Stefan was always ready to help with all our needs. Surena produced such amazing Thai and European food despite having a three week old baby. Both always cheerful.
