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.

Turkey Walk and Cruise

Cruising from Marmaris, around the Gocek Islands and on to Fethiye, this unique program offers the opportunity to see the best of the Turkish Lycian coast from sea and on foot. Walk along tracks still used by shepherds today, most of which are so remote they can only be accessed from the sea. There's plenty of time to relax and enjoy all that cruising along this stunning coastline offers. In the evening stay on board a traditional Turkish Gulet which will cruise from bay to bay as you walk along the coast. If you feel like relaxing and not walking, then just stay on board and enjoy the view! The Captain and crew take excellent care of you ensuring you have great food and the best of Turkish hospitality.
