Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was an amazing experience. As expected it was physically tough but worth every drop of sweat and mud (no blood fortunately). For me personally, I found the heat hard to adjust to. I expected us to benefit from the shade of the rainforest more than we did and I guess going from a Scottish winter to an equatorial country didn't help. Having said that it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it harder work. We were also lucky because all 13 of us got on very well and it was a good mix of people. A special mention has to go to the guides and Danny in particular. I remember when we did the Cycling in the Andes that the guides were good but Danny was excellent. As well as being extraordinarily fit and knowledgeable about adventure stuff he was passionate about Costa Rica, it's environment and future. He had a great sense of humour and as if all that weren't enough he and his team were superb cooks. Although this wasn't everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday I came home envigorated and motivated with stacks of energy - apart from having to negotiate Terminal 5 on it's second day of chaos! I've already been on your website looking for the next potential challenge, if only work didn't get in the way.

Cyprus: Walking Holidays and Small Group Adventures

The island of Cyprus is a remarkable destination for the active traveller seeking a sun soaked destination which offers a mix of great walking, fantastic cuisine and fascinating history.

The dense forests of Cyprus’ largest mountain range, the Troodos Mountains, is a natural attraction for most walkers. Surrounding the Troodos massif, which reaches a height of 1952m, are some of the islands most tranquil and charming villages, many filled with traditional architecture and lined with cobbled stone streets.

The island also has a rich history and many fine examples of Byzantine art have survived on the island. The painted churches with their colourful frescoes, ten of which have been put on the UNESCO World Heritage List, are a must see.
