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.

Philippines

Take an adventure holiday in the Philippines with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.

With over 7000 tropical islands, the Philippines is the second-largest archipelago in the world and one of Asia’s undiscovered gems. A country full of natural wonders it’s a great place to escape the hordes that descend on other parts of Southeast Asia. Its fantastic landscapes will awe you - active volcanoes, lush tropical forests, superb beaches, pristine coral waters and a wealth of fauna. However while the Philippines has one of the richest areas of biodiversity in the world, the unique people and culture are also sure to surprise and delight. Nearly 90% of Filipinos are Roman Catholic and having been colonized by a succession of world powers including the Spanish and Americans, the country is a melting pot that reflects it varied cultural inheritance.
