Walking on the Wild Side - Stalking the 'Big Five', South Af...
The bush in front of us moves as giant feet trample the branches. The earth pounds beneath our feet. Slowly but surely whole branches disappear out of sight, followed by crunching, chomping sounds. We are very close now. Together with wildlife guide Gary Freeman, we have been stalking the elephant for the last half hour. Cautiously sneaking up on him and closing in, we take care not to make noise and to stay downwind. Suddenly the bush opens up and we stand trunk...

Sun, Sea & So Much More, Trekking and Cycling in Corfu, Greece
Sun, Sea & So Much More, Trekking and Cycling in Corfu, Greece Corfu must mean beaches and more beaches, plus sunny cafes and lazy days with an iced coffee in hand, or perhaps a charming restaurant terrace underneath the stars after a day of shopping. It is all here in the city of Corfu and for that matter all over the island with its 300 kilometers of exquisite coastline. But stop for a moment. Is it really what you want to...

The Monasteries of Meteora, Greece
The Monasteries of Meteora, Greece As the wind rustles the autumn leaves, we hear what seems to be the faint sound of elves in the forest. Last night we arrived in Meteora searching for a campsite in thick fog. We finally settled in for the night not knowing exactly where we were. In the early morning we discover that the only flat spot we could find just so happens to be a place of worship for pilgrims. The clouds have lifted...

Peak Performance in the Savoie. Snowshoeing in the French Alps Snow crunches under our snowshoes as we leave the tree line. The deep snow has frozen over during the night leaving a soft crust on top. We will soon be warmed by the rays of the sun. Behind us Mont Blanc and Aguille du Midi are duelling for our attention with their jagged peaks and blue glaciers bathing in the early winter light.

Trekking Hut to Hut, Berchtesgadener Land, Germany. Mt Watzmann (Mr.), at 2713 meters, is the second highest mountain in Germany. It consists of three peaks all of which are connected by a narrow ridge. Next to this ridge is a second peak called the Watzmann Frau (Mrs). In between are the smaller pinnacles, known as the children. Early in the morning at 05h00, after a terrifying thunderstorm, we find that just above the low ceiling of clouds the sky is clear....

Smoking Volcanoes of Sicily and the Aeolian Islands, Italy
Smoking Volcanoes of Sicily and the Aeolian Islands, Italy From the bottom of our planet , one million years ago, the earth started to rumble deep below the Tyrrhenian Sea when three massive intersecting fractures collided deep in the earth's core. The formation of what we see now as Mount Etna and the cluster of islands off the coast of Sicily, the 'Y' configuration of the Aeolian Archipelago has been shaping and re-shaping over thousands of years, creating the landscape for...

As we venture into the real world outside, the body immediately goes into shock. It is no wonder every pore, crease and wrinkle of skin becomes a trough of salty, sticky sweat as soon as we step into 38 degrees celsius and 99% humidity. We cannot even begin to imagine what it will be like in the...

Diving with the Great White Sharks, Gansbaai, South Africa
Shark! Shark!! This is something every swimmer, surfer, or boogie boarder dreads to hear. In fact it is a word that most people would rather avoid in conversation when in, or around, coastal waters. So what about diving with sharks? Is it what so many think as the ultimate adrenalin rush? Is this something for you or totally taboo? We head off to South Africa and the Western Cape where the largest concentration of great whites in the world is to be found....

Winter Adventure Snowshoeing in the Italian Dolomites
Winter Adventure Snowshoeing in the Italian Dolomites The sky is a deep blue, but the cold bites at my nose as we approach the frozen waterfall. The sun does not reach this part of the valley in winter, leaving the snow as it fell, deep powder. We plough through it with the snowshoes, sinking almost to our knees with each step. Surrounding us are the towering rock walls of the Dolomiti Friulane. From the romantic village of Forni di Sopra, we...

With inviting restaurants every few meters and shops fancying everything from the purest of pure olive oils (local of course), to every '5 Terre' liqueur you could imagine the palette has endless choices. All of this is a treasure chest of delight in which...

Conquering the Jagged Spears, Dolomiti Friulane, Italy There are pearls of sweat on our foreheads. The legs feel like lead. This is the revenge of the Dolomiti Friulani, the eastern most mountains in Italy's northern Dolomities. A landscape of towering rock formations encloses us on all sides. The steep gravel path takes us to the Passo del Inferno which in literal translation, means we are on the road from hell! Nonetheless the effort is rewarded (as most hellish climbs are) with...

Pasetta, grandson of the last Wolfhunter of the Abruzzo, Italy
Pasetta's energy is endless. His every step is planted with certainty and awareness. As his forefathers have done for decades Pasetta thrives in the wilderness finding his way by instinct and the 'call of the wild'. For us it is as though we have ventured into another world which many people walk through but never really see. We stop periodically to fully appreciate our surroundings; the views over Barrea Lake, fields of wild flowers, ancient forests and a special treat, Pasetta's favourite perch,...

Hiking the Wells Gray wilderness, BC, Canada
Wild, Wilderness Trekking, Wells Gray Park, BC, Canada Wells Gray Provincial Park is equal to any of the more readily visited Rocky Mountain National parks to the east.

Our trek takes us across high alpine passes where a roll in the snow is common, through densely forested valleys and flower filled meadows, to Myrtle Lake, where...

If you follow the Rhine valley upstream, you will eventually reach Bludenz, the gateway to the Rätikon. The mountain range of the Rätikon is enframed by the Rhine in the West, the Ill in the North and the Silvretta in the East. The southern border is formed by the Landquart, which is already in Switzerland. Many people will be disappointed, that none of the Rätikon's peaks reaches the 3000m and only one small glacier, the Brandner Gletscher, exists in this area. But these...

Together with a mountain guide we set off to climb the Dreilanderspitze on our way to the Wiesbadener Hutte. There are dozens of rope teams on the glacier. On the way to the Piz Buin we end up in a traffic jam...
