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.

Dingle Peninsula Guided Walk

The Dingle Peninsula is one of the most spectacular regions on Ireland's West Coast. Moreover it is steeped in history, mythology and traditional Irish culture. There is no other landscape in Western Europe with the same density and variety of archaeological monuments. This mountainous finger of land, jutting into the Atlantic Ocean, has supported various tribes and populations for at least 6,000 years. It is impossible to visit the Dingle Peninsula and not be impressed by its archaeological heritage, which ranges from prehistoric times through the Early Christian period to the Middle Ages. There are plenty of small hamlets to enjoy good Irish cheer along the way and in the evenings you will stay at a selection of B&B's, chosen for their good character, location and excellent Irish breakfasts.
