Join Borne on a tough 275km challenge the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean, crossing Costa Rica on foot, bike, kayak and raft! 
The challenge starts with a challenging kayak down the Pacuare River taking in views of the Caribbean lowlands with the rainforest slowly giving way to ubiquitous banana plantations. 
You will cycle through forested lowlands, across rivers, and past verdant patches of jungle. 
Your trek will provide incredible views of the rainforest and Turrialba volcano, experiencing first-hand the amazing biodiversity and natural beauty of Costa Rica, and a chance to meet the indigenous people along the way. 
As you near the Pacific we transfer to rafts for a 10km white-water run. As you make your way downstream the vivid colours of the exotic birds make the old growth forest flash with life, with many species of kingfishers and Toucans.
The challenge will test you physically and you will earn your sponsorship for Borne, but this is the most incredible way to experience Costa Rica - world-renowned for its abundance of rainforests, cloud forests, jungles and volcanoes.
