The Amazon basin is one of a kind in the world; it is the largest lowland on the planet covering 1.7 billion acres covering nine countries. It is the world’s largest tropical rainforest that represents over half of the planets remaining rainforests. The Amazon River is the source of life for this region and it is the largest in the world in terms of volumes of water that flow in the river.

An expedition in the Amazon lets you experience it unique wildlife, lost cities, dense forests and unique plants such as the Victoria Regia, the largest water lily in the world. You can use kayaks or other small boats to explore the tributaries of the Amazon and enjoy sporting pink dolphins, caimans, piranha, capybara and anaconda – the largest snake in the world. The rainforest is home to jaguars, monkeys, rodents, musk hogs and tapirs.


Dive into the earth’s crack at Silfra Rift in Iceland; it is one of a kind experience, there is nowhere else in the world like it. It is the only place on the planet where when you stretch your arms in the water, you will be touching two continents, Eurasia with one hand and with the other America.

It is an exciting destination and the only one in the world where you can swim or dive between two tectonic plates, which really are amazing. Tectonic plates are what constitute the earth’s crust. The geological wonder of Silfra Rift lies within the incredible Pingvellir National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Diving into the Silfra Rift is an adventure you will live to retell as long as you live, to anyone who cares to listen. It is mind blowing being under the chilly clear waters of the Pingvellir glacial Lake gaping at lava rock formations. The lake receives water from glaciers 50 km away and resurfaces via underground wells; you only need to dive to understand this strange phenomenon.


New Zealand may be isolated Mother Nature has really favored this country with unique flora and fauna, breathtaking wilderness, mountains, beaches and endless parks. New Zealand is a destination that your eyes long to remain open to witness the panoramic views of the diverse landscapes. Hiking is the best option to witness the beautiful landscapes and explore the expansive wilderness areas, whether it is a short visit or part of an extended journey.

There are numerous hiking trails in New Zealand to suit different types of hikers; the trails traverse national parks, native forests and stunning coastlines. Some of the best include the Tongariro Northern circuit, Tongariro Alpine Crossing, Lake Waikeremoana Walk, Milford track, Abel Tasman Coast Track, Rangitoto Summit Track, Kaikouira Peninsula and Franz Joseph Walk.

The Milford Track is perhaps the most popular and thrilling in the region for over 150 years. It is 53 kilometers long, begins at Lake Teanau, and leads you across suspension bridges, boardwalks and mountain walks. It is rewarding with scenic beauty of breathtaking fjords, pristine lakes, sky-scraping mountain peaks, lush valleys and the tallest waterfalls in the county, Sutherland.
