Myanmar - Kakku Pagodas

Nepal - the Kingdom of Mustang

North of the Annapurna range, Mustang is one of the finest Himalayan destinations for both its rugged mountain landscapes and rich cultural legacy. This outstanding trek follows established trails through villages that once served a thriving trade route between Nepal and Tibet. The terrain is striking; a semi-arid desert with deep ravines and rock shelves, flanked by snowy peaks. This is an outstanding journey to one of the true gems of the Himalaya. View tour

Belarus - Highlights of Belarus

Castles, cathedrals, rich forests and soviet structures – Belarus is a diamond, shining with post-war intrigue. While much of the country has been shaped in some way by conflict, the result is a modern country where Soviet, Polish, Orthodox and Jewish influences meet in each city to create architectural wonderlands. In contrast, the sprawling medieval forests of Belovezhskaya Pushcha and the humming marshes of the Berezina Biosphere Reserve remain unravaged by man and just as full of curious history, riddled in the growth rings of the towering ancient oak trees. From marsh to metropolis, Belarus’ appeal lies in a tranquillity that needs to be experienced first hand before it can be fully understood. View tour

Russia Explorer - Solovetsky Islands

The Solovetsky Islands, a remote archipelago of six main islands and more than 500 lakes in the distant White Sea, have a turbulent and varied past. Historically, the islands housed a famous Russian Orthodox Monastery from the 15th century onwards, serving as the site of many repelled attacks attacks across the ages. The communist era saw it the islands become a place of exile and home to one of the earliest GULAGs (prison camps) from the early 1920s. Despite this dark past, the natural beauty of the islands is breathtaking, especially during the "White Nights" of midsummer when the sun never fully sets and you are treated to long hours of sunset merging into daybreak without true night in between.

Long known to backpackers, Chefchachouen is still relatively unknown to mainstream travellers. Described as one of the prettiest towns in Morocco, this blue-washed mountain village with its narrow lanes and red-tiled roofs sits hidden beneath the towering peaks of the surrounding Rif Mountains. It makes for a great place to relax, wander or take a hike in the nearby green hills. View tour
