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.

Umbria Cycle

Discover the magical landscapes and gently rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside as you cycle through this special region of Italy. Visit Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto and Todi, with each town revealing an incredible wealth of art treasures, many dating back to the Middle Ages. Absorb the authenticity of the region as you wander through the winding streets of the medieval hamlets and untouched villages laden with local handicrafts. Umbria is a spectacle of nature with a proud gastronomic tradition. At night experience the friendliness of the local hoteliers as you stay in atmospheric accommodation.
