Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was wonderful, thanks! The local operator, Coast to Coast, were very well organised and especially Danny, the lead guide, was the best guide I have ever seen in action. It was a privilege to be guided by such a well-rounded and versatile person - from navigating and motivating the group, to cooking (delicious food) and patching up blisters. And always with a smile on his face.

I am already planning my next trip with World Expeditions - rafting on the Franklin River in Tasmania.

Utracks - Self Guided and Small Group Adventures :  Italy

From the colourful meadows of Tuscany to the rocky and dramatic coastline of Italy's south, this is a country that offers diversity on a plate.

Mountains feature prominently in Italy's topography. Italy's backbone is formed by the Apennines, from Genoa right down to Sicily. The Po River Valley in the country's northeast forms the largest lowland area. Italy is home to three active volcanoes - Stromboli in the Aeolian Islands, Vesuvius near Naples and Etna on Sicily.

Beauty simply abounds in Italy...
