LEAVE THE CROWDS BEHIND IN THE CAUCASUS

The Iron Curtain. For almost five decades it served as a philosophical and physical divide that made travel to the countries 'behind' it impossible for much of the world. Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia are three of these, whose impressive mountain vistas were off-limits to westerners, along with their cultural and historical treasures. But now, all that has changed.

Since 1991 when the Wall came down, and Soviet rule was replaced with independence, tourism has slowly started returning to Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. But with nearby Sochi hosting the Olympics just to the north, all eyes are focused on this part of the world so it won't be long before this region is on everyone's radar making now the perfect time to go there before the tour buses do.

WORLDS AWAY IN PAPUA, NEW GUINEA

A recent article in the Huffington Post named Papua New Guinea as having some of the most remote tribes in the world, with many having only marginal contact with the outside world. Our treks take you to meet some of this country's fascinating people and are timed to coincide with the traditional 'singsing' festivals, where tribes from all over the country gather in all their finery. There's even an overnight stay in one of the local villages to give you a taste of the traditional lifestyle only found in this exotic corner of the world.
