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.

Walking in Iceland

Iceland’s distinctive volcanic landscape offers the perfect backdrop for day walks in the company of an expert guide. The extensive lava fields, huge moss-filled volcanic craters, serene fjords and trails that lead into the heart of the renowned Skaftafell National Park are part of this carefully devised itinerary. Each day will reveal new scenery and activities will include a glacier walk, visits to historical sights and even an opportunity to bathe in steaming hot springs. The series of day walks are fully supported ensuring rewarding days on the trail, while our nights are spent in a comfortable hotel in easy reach of southern Iceland's most inspiring locations.
