Pollak, an active traveler herself, announces a new trip to Patagonia over New Year's, a trek to Mt. Everest in Nepal celebrating the 35th anniversary of JOURNEYS founding, and a milestone trip to Antarctica marking retirement of company founder and her father Will Weber. All JOURNEYS trips also feature expert local guides who are often specialists in natural history, cultural arts or photography and who possess a special knowledge of local logistics, politics and favorite sites.
JOURNEYS trips are the best fit for curious travelers seeking personal experiences and spontaneous encounters with local people and environments," Pollak advises. "We want you to come home with a sense that you enjoyed, appreciated, and gained insights into a place very different from your usual environment and in a very different style from more conventional large group tours."
