1. Discover Sudan

Experience the warm hospitality of the Nubian people on a trip to Sudan. Stay in a traditional house in a village where the Islamic way of life is less strict than elsewhere in Sudan. Here, villagers readily speak to visitors, women don’t cover their faces, and a different language is spoken. Those seeking an extra special experience can even opt to camp out in the courtyard beneath the stars.

2. Burma Highlights

Spend a day on a longtail boat exploring the picturesque Inle Lake, set at high altitude on the Shan Plateau. See skilled local craftsman at work, using traditional tools to craft incredible boats that serve as the locals’ lifeline in this water-based community.

3. Discover Ukraine and Moldova

Cross the border in to Trans-Dniester – a country unrecognised by the rest of the world but has it’s own military, currency and flag. Once you're in the breakaway state, visit the Kvint Brandy Factory for a tour and tasting, and take a guided walking tour. View the numerous war memorials including those commemorating the 1992 Civil War and Trans-Dniester War, as well as the Supreme Court, Statue of Lenin, De Voln Park and Arch of Bendery.

4. Kilimanjaro - Lemosho Trek

After nearly a week’s trekking on Kilimanjaro, the final day of ascent involves a midnight start. As you slowly cover the challenging final stretch of your climb, admire the tapestry of stars and glowing moon. See the sun rise as you reach the top of the crater rim at Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa.  A poignant end to an epic challenge, and an exhilarating experience that is hard to match.

7. Walking in the Andorran Pyrenees

Refuel after a day’s walking in beautiful Galicia with a delicious plate of seafood, freshly caught in the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Highlights of this moderately-graded walking trip include the quiet fishing village of Camarinas, a hike to Cape Finisterre (a.k.a the ‘end of the world’) and the magnificent cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

8. Highlights of Bolivia

Standing on the middle of the salt flats with nothing but white as far as the eye can see is a bizarre and even emotional feeling. With the white salt blending into the bright blue sky, it feels like some kind of movie version of heaven.
