Australia

Top End Kimberley
Roughly three times larger than England, the Kimberley is one of Australia’s oldest and most remote regions that continues to leave travellers spellbound. The landscape is home to prolific wildlife, birdlife and breathtaking scenery including majestic canyons, beautiful waterfalls and swimming holes. Age-old rock formations dot the landscape, such as the oddly-shaped Bungle Bungle Mountain Range and exquisite ancient Aboriginal rock art is also a highlight of the region. Broome on Western Australia’s north-western coast is the gateway to the Kimberley where many adventures begin. There are over 84 Aboriginal communities associated with Broome and the traditional landholders remain the Yawuru people.

Antarctica

A final frontier for many intrepid travellers, there are few places on earth more remote or awe-inspiring than Antarctic. The Antarctic Peninsula is the most accessible area of Antarctica and one of the most beautiful. Breathtaking vistas of icebergs, glaciers and vast snowy mountains act as a backdrop to iconic penguin rookeries. Discover a huge diversity of birdlife, including Gentoo, Chinstrap and Adelie penguins, Storm Petrels, Skuas and Terns. Polar mammals including Weddell and crabeater seals, orcas and humpback whales are often sighted on icebergs and in the surrounding waters.

The untouched sub-Antarctic Islands scattered around the continent are home to a diverse range of unique wildlife and birdlife that cannot be found anywhere else on Earth. Often referred to as “The Galapagos of the Southern Ocean” South Georgia is possibly the best of all and offers an incredible concentration of wildlife. Massive colonies of king penguins can be found on the beachfront along with hundreds of fur and elephant seals making for a truly remarkable sight.

Arctic & Greenland

The brief summer period between June and August allows for incredible Arctic expeditions to the northern reaches of the globe otherwise unreachable at other times of the year. This wondrous region is home to abundant wildlife, dramatic landscapes and fascinating Viking history. Hiking excursions across pristine tundra wilderness and zodiac excursions in search of polar bears and seabirds offer an incredible insight into one of the world’s most magnificent regions.

Marine and birdlife abound and there are plenty of sensational spots to snorkel or scuba dive. Aside from the natural beauty, the region also boasts fascinating history, varying religious beliefs, local stories and many beautiful historic buildings.
