Costa Rica Traverse

it was the most amazing trip I've ever done. Danny our guide was phenomenal - his ability to keep us upbeat and motivated and telling us information on a need to know basis was fantastic - I wish he could be our guide on every trip I do in the future! The rest of his team was also fantastic - the logistics behind the trip were critical but totally seamless as we trudged through the rainforest and up vertical mud slopes in the rain.
It really was a challenge and I was nervous about my levels of fitness but I realise now that I'm fitter than I thought I was - long may I continue to keep the fitness up although last week I took it easy.

Thanks again to WE for their excellent advice to do this trip - I'm so happy I did and have met some great people as a result!

The landscape varies from rolling tundra, frozen seas, soaring peaks and sparkling glaciers.The Arctic has a total Population of about 15 million of which 4 million are native.

Rainfall averages 10 to 20 inches (mostly in the form of snow) amd the average temperatures fall between 0°F and 20°F. but can range from -90°F (in winter) to 100°F (in summer) depending on location, ice cover, latitude, and proximity to the ocean. In Summer, the abundance of wildflowers and lichens in this land of endless quiet adds yet another dimension, one that's full of contrast, color and delicacy. Wildlife abounds with diversity and a trip to the high Arctic may present a rare opportunity to see in the wild - polar bears, wolves, caribou, narwhal and beluga whales.
