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.

Scottish Highlands Cycle

Cycle from Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands, along the shores of Loch Ness to Fort William. During this week long trip you'll cycle along scenic paths and quiet forest trails with opportunities en route to spot the wildlife such as red deer, stag or golden eagle. A day in Fort William is set aside to rest or ascend Ben Nevis (1344m), Britain's highest mountain. A train journey takes you across desolate Rannoch Moor to Loch Rannoch, where the cycle continues to the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, nestled in the Perthshire hills. The final stage is the attractive cycle route to the riverside city of Perth, with opportunities to visit the historic cathedral of Dunkeld en route.
