  • Before the trek: Welcome to Kathmandu

    “Life is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're gonna get” and needless to say, so is travel.

    Once you set foot in that foreign land - anything can happen. It was like that when I first touched down in Kathmandu. It felt like utter chaos as I left the tranquility of the inner airport. I had been warned, but as a newbie traveller, I still was not prepared.

  • My home in Provence

    Stuart Sommers is a professional mountain guide who takes walking tours through his hometown of Provence:

    Trying to describe the essence of Provence to my walking guests is next to impossible. In size it’s about a 3-hour drive across, from the Rhône River to the Italian border, or from the Mediterranean to the Southern Alps.

  • See the Alps through the eyes of a local

    We recently spoke to the operators of our new Walking in the French and Swiss Alps tour, Mark and Carey. They are passionate about the region and excited to offer this experience to Peregrine travellers.

    Hear from Mark and Carey, in their own words, about why this part of the world is so beautiful. Then hurry up and book a trip so you can experience it for yourself!

  • Feel on top of the world

    There's nothing quite like strapping on a pair of sturdy boots and setting to hike along well-worn or relatively undiscovered trails.

    A visit to the French and Swiss Alps can offer a spectacular change of scenery, as you fill your lungs with fresh mountain air and see some of the world's most spectacular mountain vistas.
