Mount Cook Aoraki Ascent

As for the Mt Cook trip, it was absolutely brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the 10 day course taught me a lot! I'm already thinking of what I would like to climb next.... Possibly something in the Himalayas. Just need to keep up the fitness (and save up a lot of money!!).

Prague to Dresden Guided Cycle

Regarded as one of Europe's most beautiful cities with its fairy tale ambiance and golden spires, Prague is a fitting starting point to this grand cycle tour to discover the Bohemian countryside and idyllic river landscapes en route to the beautifully restored city of Dresden. The cycle begins by following the Moldau River to Melnik with its great wine growing tradition. It continues along quiet backroads and nature trails along the Elbe River, through classic scenery of hilltop castles, lovingly renovated villages, spa towns and during the last stage, through 'Saxon Switzerland' where massive Elbe sandstone formations have attracted rock climbers from around the world. From the devastation arising from WWII, Dresden has regained its former glory, with its impressive buildings including the magnificent Zwinger Palace.

traveller reviews

A well organised trip with a good guide. Accommodation and meals superb. I have recommended the trip to friends. The small group format was good. The trip was highly suitable for the 50 - 70 age group.
