One of the most colourful and species rich environments on earth rainforests are endlessly fascinating to the naturalist. Technically there are two types of rainforest, tropical and temperate. Warmth and wetness are needed to provide this environment, so most rainforests are around the equatorial belt of the planet. A minimum annual rainfall of about 68-78 inches normally defines rainforest.
There are five oceans, the largest being the Pacific, then the Atlantic, Indian, Southern and Arctic. There are many deep trenches on the ocean floors, where the earth’s surface in places remains volatile resulting in earthquakes, volcanoes and in the case of those in the oceans, tsunamis. This is where life on earth began ……
There seems to be no official definition of what constitutes a mountain, although we all recognise that they are higher than hills and mostly have a peak! If you want to take part in a mountain climb, ski down them or just look at them from below, contact me to put together the perfect itinerary taking the mountains of your choice
Grasses provide food for most of the world’s land species and 10,000 varieties of grass cover a quarter of all vegetated land, providing grazing for enormous numbers of the worlds mammals! Explore the grasslands of the world as part of a horse riding holiday, African Safari or South American savannah exploration.
If you are up for adventure, there are lots of polar expeditions to be enjoyed – circumnavigate the North Pole, join an Antarctic cruise or trek across the tundra of North America and Asia. If you prefer more comfort in your white environment, book a winter sports trip or a visit to Lapland, staying in cosy chalets and mountain lodges.
To most people the word ‘desert’ conjures up images of endless sand, heat and mirages! This is true with tropical deserts but there are alpine and high altitude deserts too, with a very different terrain and they all support resilient life forms – plants and animals that have adapted over the millennia to tough out these harsh environments. Whether you want to stay with the Tuaregs of the Sahara, trek in the remote Gobi Desert, sleep under the stars on a bedroll in the Kalahari or learn survival skills in the Australian outback, give me a call to arrange your desert adventure
