Sicily Coastline
April 19, 2018
Blog Post

Sicily really has everything. You could easily spend months exploring Italy’s largest island, hiking its mountains and volcanoes, exploring beaches and smaller outlying islands. But there would still be plenty left to discover in the layers of history and culture that make Sicily what it is today– a diverse, culturally-rich destination.

Because of Sicily’s position on the edge of the Italian map, only few tourists ever make it this far. Those who do usually only visit...

Nearly a dozen different rivers feed into the bay, including the mighty Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Meghna. The expansive delta created by these rivers is a diverse marine ecosystem that includes the Sundarbans, a...

Papua New Guinea is one of the few places left in the world where overused adjectives such as “wild,” “remote,” and “pristine” genuinely still apply. It’s the world’s second largest island (after Greenland), and one of the most sparsely populated countries on the planet.

The country contains some of the planet’s most extraordinary biodiversity. Papua New Guinea is home to the third...

Blog Post

Whenever people ask us about our favorite places we've traveled, we struggle to narrow it down to a short, concise answer. But for adventure seekers with a passion for nature and wildlife, Rwanda offers a host of unique experiences, many of which are far off the mass tourism track.

“The land of a thousand hills” is best known for the endangered Mountain Gorillas of Volcanoes National Park, which were made famous by late...

Today we all converged on this southernmost Argentine city to meet our fellow travelers on our Antarctic adventure. There are roughly 75 of us, plus staff. In the evening we gathered for cocktails, dinner, and a few introductions in a room that afforded a splendid view of the Beagle Channel—our gateway to the Drake Passage and the southern continent.

Svalbard: A Polar Bear Quest
March 5, 2018
Blog Post

Located about halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole, Svalbard ranks among the world’s northernmost areas that are inhabited by humans. Of course, with approximately 23,500 square miles of land and less than 3,000 full-time residents, this remote Arctic archipelago isn’t exactly what you’d call a bustling metropolis. And that is precisely what makes these Norwegian islands an emerging ecotourism hotspot.

What the Svalbard archipelago lacks in people, it more than makes up...
