Costa Rica Traverse

I have postponed sending this letter until now so as to be uninfluenced by post-trip emotions, as it were. But even 9 months on, I still cannot help but praise this expedition. It was a wonderful mixture of guides & people. The grade was enough to focus you on the task in hand, and to get a real feeling & respect for the land. The kindness & generosity displayed by ALL of the WE representatives on the trip all complimented the experience, turning it away from a regular organised expedition and into something more - something that has fed and quickened soul - and for adventure. Thank you.

Serbia: Guided Cycling Holidays and Small Group Guided Adventures

Serbia has always been at the crossroads of the East and West. It first found itself between the Byzantine and Roman empires before becoming a frontier between the Ottoman Empire and the Christian West. Its position has led to constant migrations and the mixing of populations resulting in a dynamic, multicultural society.

Serbia has long been a meeting place for diverse cultures, trading caravans and armies on the march to war. Territory had to be defended if tribes and peoples were to survive and the remains of the many fortifications along the Danube are testament to that period in the country’s history.

Along the Danube River’s 588 km course through Serbia, the river stretches from the Serbian, Hungarian and Croatian borders to its confluence with the Timok, where the borders of Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania meet. The Serbian section of the Danube passes through the picturesque Vojvodina flatlands and the national parks of the Fruška Gora and Đerdap.

Besides the river’s natural wealth, there are many sites of cultural and historical value spread out along its banks all which make for perfect exploration by bike.
