Destination: The Southern Patagonia Ice Cap, Argentina

Essence of the trip:

Embark on a new challenge and trek through the harsh wilderness of the Earth’s third largest glaciated area on an epic expedition that will see you explore and appreciate the scale of Southern Patagonia. Circle world famous mountains such as Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre and walk the entire length of Argentina’s biggest glacier, Viedma. With our trusted local guides we’ve created this new trip to challenge you and get you out into the wild and barren landscapes to accomplish one of the hardest treks in the southern hemisphere.

This trip will give you:

  • The chance to trek one of the most unique  routes in the world, where you’ll scale nearly 60 km of an ice field smaller only than the Antarctica and Greenland sheets and covering an epic total area of 13 000 square meters.
  • The opportunity to push yourself to new limits as you brave the stormy showers and whistling winds of the world-renowned Marconi Pass.
  • The unrivaled experience of camping on the ice itself, waking up to the sparkling expanse of an uncharted universe of ice and snow.
  • Insight from our team of expert guides into how to survive and cope and in polar conditions like a true pioneer.



Arrive into the small town of El Chalten at the foot of Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre where you will receive an invaluable briefing about the Ice Field and pick up your provided camping and technical gear. The following morning you will be transferred to the bridge over Electrico River, the starting point of the trek towards the base of Marconi Glacier. For two hours you will follow a well marked path before bidding farewell to civilization at the Piedra Del Fraile campsite. The great glacier valley awaits. Cross moraines and rocky formations left by the glaciers less than 70 years ago before coming to camp on the Western shore of Lake Electrico.

Your third day will see you ascending 800m on ice and snow as you use crampons and ropes to climb the Marconi Glacier and enter a kingdom of snow and ice. Push yourself to new limits as you brave the winds and snows of the Marconi Pass. The fantastic sunset later enjoyed at the most aerial campsite of the expedition will serve as a worthy reward.

Over the next two days sledge and trek to the Circo De Los Altares, taking in unbeatable and rarely seen views of the active Lautaro Volcano and Mariano Moreno Range. Your sixth day will see you enjoying a well earned rest at a campsite near the rustic Paso del Viento hut.

Feeling refreshed, embark on the final two days of trekking that will take you to the epic Viedma Glacier, the largest in Argentina. This challenging route offers several spectacular viewpoints including an aerial view of the glacier’s snout as it calves into Lake Viedma. Tackle the steep descent to the lake and Cabo de Homos Bay before you return to El Chalten – aching and weary but carrying a sense of achievement that few other feelings can beat.

For three nights you’ll stay in ger camps with local nomadic families, set against the vast landscapes of the Bayan-Olgiy region. This remote area of Mongolia that lies close to the border with Russia and Kazakhstan is still untouched by mass tourism and honest to its cultural roots, traditions such as hunting for food and fur with golden eagles are still very much alive in Bayan Olgiy.  During your stay here you’ll learn how to master the art of hunting with these majestic birds on horse back, a thrilling ancient practice that not many people get the chance to experience.

  • Discovery of Mongolia’s most remote regions and unexplored deserts that will ignite a feeling of complete isolation.
  • The chance to camp with local Mongolia families in the middle of the Mongolian Steppe, and learn their way of life.
  • The opportunity to learn how to hunt on horse back with Eagles using age-old techniques.



Arrive in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s fascinating capital city where you will be met by guide and driver. Situated on the Tuul River, this ex-soviet city is a mixture of traditional and modern, where flowing eaves of monastery temples stand beside communist planned courtyards and modern sky scrapers. Settle into your hotel  for a quick freshen up before visiting the Museum of National History to gain an understanding of Mongolia’s remarkable past. You’ll end your first day in the country with dinner at one of our favourite Mongolian restaurants where you can sample the delicious local fare.

Day 2 starts early as you wake up for a flight arriving in Ulgii at around breakfast time. The capital of the westernmost aimag, Ulgii is a predominantly Kazakh city where a Muslim influence is widespread – from street signs, religion, clothes and food, and gives the town its diverse atmosphere. From here drive east to Altantsogts stopping on the way at Oni mountain to see some nests where eagles lay eggs in early march – the chicks stay their until mid July until they can fly themselves so the nests will be empty now. At Altantsogts, meet your host for the next two nights; the Eagle Hunter, his family, and his magnificent bird and experience first-hand Kazakh hospitality and the nomadic lifestyle. The Eagle hunter will be one of the most experienced eagle hunters in the region and trains the rest of the family to become an eagle hunters. Here he’ll give you an introduction to Kazakh eagle hunting skills and history.

You’ll be about a 6 hour drive to the nearest town so you’ll get a real sense of how life is lived out into the middle of nowhere. Amid the arid yet strikingly beautiful landscape is where these nomadic hunters still live a very traditional way of life that has defied history, geography, and political change. Roam the vast, empty lands learning the unique skills and techniques of eagle hunting. Before embarking on a hunt, you’ll take training sessions with an eagle against the backdrop of snow-capped mountains and breath-taking glaciers.  Then on horseback, or on foot if you wish, you’ll trek deep into the Altai Mountains to begin the hunt, watching the eagles soar to monumental heights before swooping down to catch rabbits or foxes.

After a few days out in the harsh environment you’ll soon appreciate the practice of hunting with eagles as a life’s profession and way of existence that the hunters have mastered over years of toil; master and bird have an intimate relationship which is built on over 20 years of trust.  As legend goes the man trains the eagle, so does the eagle train his man.

For a insight into these communities you can meet a shaman who will give you an idea of his rituals. From here its back to Ulgii and Ulaanbaatar for your departure home.

Destination: Oman

Essence of the Trip:

An unforgettable adventure across Oman’s stunning landscape with an insider’s insight on ancient Omani culture and traditional way of life. From vibrant Salalah to the ruined mountain villages of Wadi Bani Habib and the souks of Muscat, this is a trip that encapsulates the very best that Oman has to offer in a truly epic style.

This Trip Will Give You:

  • Discovery of Oman’s most remote regions and unexplored deserts that will ignite a feeling of complete isolation.
  • A true insight into Omani culture; witnessing religious rituals and learning directly from nomadic mountain dwellers.
  • The opportunity to stay in traditional Bedouin settlements.
  • Genuine Omani expertise from the unrivalled knowledge of our guides who will ensure you make the most of your time in Oman on a life enriching adventure.



Arriving in Salalah you will in be met by your specialist guide who will brief you on your upcoming expedition.

Salalah has a distinctly African feel to it and is a unique corner of Oman that sees it transformed by annual monsoons from arid desert into a lush oasis. In Salalah you will immerse yourself in Omani culture as you visit the fishing village of Taqah (the Sultan’s mother was born here) and discover its ancient castle. You’ll visit Khor Rhori, the ruined city of Samhuram and capital of ancient Arabia’s exotic Frankincense trade. Sample local foods before heading into the mountains to the dizzying heights of the tomb of Prophet Job.

The days ahead will have you experiencing true desert life as you fly from Salalah deeper into the wilderness, stopping off on route to watch adrenalin inducing camel racing and exploring Ibra, one of the oldest cities in Oman and once the capital for trade and religion. Transported to the spectacular Wahiba Sands we will arrive in time for sunset, one of the most enduring visions on your Arabian adventure.

In Wahiba Sands, you’ll be staying at a private camp that is completely remote and beautifully positioned against the dunes. A place that is eerily quiet and suffers no light pollution, star gazing opportunities in Wahiba Sands are plentiful and your guide will be on hand to guide you through the night sky. There is no use of electric light here in the desert so we will be using candles and open fires too cook and eat. We will have an early morning start to climb the nearest sand dune and watch the sun rise over the expanse of golden mounds that spread out to the horizon. You’ll feel as though you’re the last person on earth as you quietly take in this giant expanse of unconquered territory.

From Wahiba Sands you’ll stop at a traditional Bedouin settlement for a further taste of desert living. With your expert guide on hand this will be an enlightening experience as you learn first-hand how the Bedouin survive in these harsh conditions. Your next stop will be Nizwa for a day exploring Oman’s forts and castles constructed between the 13th and 17th centuries. You will have the opportunity to visit Nizwa’s local market with your guide on hand to explain the local foods and traditions. After a night in Nizwa, we again gain altitude as we climb Jebel Shams, over 3,000 meters above sea level and the highest peak in Oman. Hiking around 3 hours from the summit of Jebal Shams will take us to a hidden mountain village only accessible by foot. With views over terraced landscapes and cultivated gardens and the opportunity to meet members of the Bedouin inhabitants, this will be total immersion into authentic Omani life.

On the coming days you will journey between remote villages in the Jebal Akhdar region to gain a true understanding of Omani’s mountain culture. Wadi Bani Habib is a stunning ruined village built into the side of the mountain and is a sight that leaves most that visit speechless. The last days of your Omani adventure will be spent in Muscat where your day may start with a visit to witness morning prayers at the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, the fifth largest in the world. The mosque is a stunning example of Islamic architecture. As you wander through the labyrinthine Souks nearby, you’ll end your epic trip feeling as though you’ve truly earned an experience that few have had the opportunity of realising.
