Dianne’s Personal Pick!
Your Adventure: 15-Day Real Everest Base Camp with Intrepid
(Activity Level: 5)

Recommended for you by Dianne Mercer, Manager, Atlantic Place

“Everest Base Camp was the trip of a lifetime, one that I’ll never forget! Our whole group pulled together and supported and encouraged each other daily and at the end of each day we were able to look back at our day and say ‘we DID that!.’”

Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime trekking in Nepal to Everest Base Camp, making the ultimate trek all the way to the foot of the world’s highest mountain. This is not a trip for the faint of heart—you’ll be trekking up to 12 hours a day and at altitudes over 5500m at times—but it promises to be a transformative experience.

Your Adventure: 9-day Kenya Camping Safari with G Adventures
(Activity Level: 2)

Recommended for you by Kim Simms, Manager, Grand Falls-Windsor

“My Kenya safari was a dream come true! Each day presented a new adventure: Watching a herd of elephants pass by our jeep in single file on their way home at dusk with Mt. Kilimanjaro as the backdrop. Star-gazing under the vast Kenyan sky. The volume and variety of wildlife was breathtaking!”

Full-service camping under the big African sky on this light adventure will bring you closer to the region’s wildlife and gets you off the beaten path.
