Cycle the Berlin Wall in the 30th anniversary year of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, guided by an Explore Leader who, having grown up in East Germany, can provide first-hand insight into life behind the wall and the iconic events of 1989. Along the way, visit iconic city sites including Hitler's Bunker, the Bridge of Spies, Checkpoint Charlie, Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate. 

Spot the Northern Lights on a short break in remote Yellowknife in Canada's white north. Just 400km south of the Arctic Circle, far from major sources of light pollution, this is one the best places in the world for seeing the Aurora Borealis. You'll spend three nights looking out for them from private viewing cabins off the Great Slave Lake.

Travel through the spectacular Silberian Altai Mountains and spend two nights with an eagle hunter family before attending the annual Mongolian Eagle Festival. Here, 400 eagle hunters enter the valley on horseback with their golden eagles. Various events, games and competitions show the skills of birds and their handlers, while hunters are judged on their costumes, horsemanship and ability to control the birds. Celebrating and keeping alive the fascinating local traditions, the festival makes for fantastic photo opportunities.
