A well-known archaeologist once said that no matter where you stick a spade in Egypt, you'd have a fair chance of finding ancient artefacts! In fact, there’s probably no other country in the world that boasts such a wealth of antiquities - the focal point of this particular trip.

We spend five full days in Cairo, exploring a number of monuments dating back to the Old Kingdom. Principal among these are the superb tombs at Sakkara, a blueprint of life and times during this period. Arriving in Aswan we visit the celebrated Temple of Ramses II, at Abu Simbel, and the exquisite Temple of Isis, at Philae, before boarding our Nile riverboat for a magical cruise downriver to Luxor. Our boat has a great on-board atmosphere, with comfortable air-conditioned cabins – each with their own private shower and toilet. In addition there is a cosy restaurant, where all meals are served, and a rooftop bar (?). The spacious top deck is ideal for sunbathing and relaxing, with excellent views of the river. Arriving in Luxor we visit the Valley of the Kings, the beautiful Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and explore the colossal temple complex at Karnak before making our way back to Cairo.

This spectacular adventure treks through the Annapurna foothills to the remote Kopra Ridge – one of the best vantage points in the Himalaya. We stay in newly-constructed lodges, a joint venture between Peregrine and the local community, with profits benefiting local schools and village projects. From Pokhara we drive to Lumle and ascend terraced hillsides to Upper Ghandruk, enjoying fine views of the Annapurna Mountains. At Tadapani we leave the popular main trail and for the next week head into remote alpine terrain to Baili before ascending to Kopra. Here we view the lofty peaks of Nilgiri, Annapurna I, Fang and Annapurna South. Dhaulagiri dominates the western skyline across the deepest gorge in the world, the Kali Ghandaki. Our return route descends through open alpine pastures and then oak and rhododendron forest to Swanta. We continue this off the beaten track adventure via Danda Kharka before rejoining the main trail to Pokhara to unwind beside Lake Phewa Tal.
