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.
Our Style of Travel
Experience - at the heart of all our adventures ...
An adventure travel holiday is about experience. Whether viewing Everest, the world's highest mountain, from a trek to Base Camp in Nepal, witnessing the magic of Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate on the Inca Trail in Peru, revelling in the festivities of a Devali street party in India or sitting amongst what feels like a million penguins on South Georgia, we aim to capture the essence of this experience on our adventure travel holidays. Our adventure tours are about discovery, personal achievement & camaraderie. They will challenge, inspire and flirt with all your senses. Travelling the paths less trodden, visiting isolated communities, old sites and spectacular landscapes are synonymous with World Expeditions adventures.
Guides with extensive local knowledge …
You get the best of both worlds on a World Expeditions adventure. For over 30 years we have worked with elite adventurers the world over. Recognised authorities in their field, many are world-class photographers, authors and mountaineers. Their passion and expertise has ensured that we are continually updating and refining our programmes, taking adventure travel to new heights. Of equal importance are our local guides who ensure that someone with a comprehensive understanding of regional conditions and culture leads your trip. We have trained group leaders in all our operations. Validated by customer feedback, our policy ensures employees with unparalleled enthusiasm and experience.
Adventure travel holidays for all ages and fitness levels
World Expeditions has a wide range of trekking & adventure travel holidays to suit nearly everyone. Our adventures are clearly graded to ensure you can match your fitness level to an appropriate trip. For some, an adventure travel holiday means trekking in the Himalayas, for others it is a cultural journey along the Silk Road from Beijing to Tashkent. We've split our adventures into various brochures to help you navigate your way to the right adventure experience for you. From introductory graded treks to advanced mountaineering, our Active Adventures brochure features more active, tent based trekking holidays to the world's most remote wilderness destinations. Our Journeys of Discovery brochure features adventure travel holidays that feature carefully planned itineraries that offer less physical activity during the day, more dedicated cultural excursions and comfortable accommodations at night.
Journeys as individual as you are …
While we offer an extensive range of adventure travel programmes, we recognise that they may not suit your personal requirements. We regularly custom-tailor holidays for families, friends, charities, schools and special-interest groups. Our staff will work with you, using their expertise and experience to help make your ultimate adventure a reality.
