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.

Lycian Guided Walk

Between Fethiye and Antalya along Southern Turkey's Tekke Peninsula, or Lycia as it is historically known, is one of the country's first waymarked trails, the 509km Lycian Way. This mountainous route encompasses spectacular coastal views, archaeological treasures dating back to the 8th century BC and interesting villages with their unique Lycian flavour. During a series of day walks in the company of an experienced guide, we discover sections of the route with well preserved Greek and Roman cities, a Lycian necropolis lost in vegetation and a side excursion to the remains of the immersed city of Kekova. At other times we traverse rugged mountain trails to meet the gracious local people, sample culinary specialties and swim in the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
