  • Cross Costa Rica on foot and raft from the Caribbean to the Pacific
  • Trek through coffee plantations and dense tropical rainforest
  • Experience the amazing biodiversity and natural beauty of Costa Rica
  • Visit Irazu, Costa Rica's highest volcano (3,432m)

Join for an incredible trekking and rafting challenge from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea, crossing Costa Rica on foot and raft!

The challenge includes an exhilerating two day rafting section of the Pacuare River, taking on rapids up to grade IV.  Take in views of the Caribbean lowlands with the rainforest slowly giving way to ubiquitous banana plantations.

You will trek through coffee plantations, indigenous communites and dense rainforests. Take on some challenging ascents reaching incredible viewpoints of the pacific ocean and verdant patches of jungle, with incredible views of the rainforest, experiencing first-hand the amazing biodiversity and natural beauty of Costa Rica.

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 but this is the most incredible way to experience Costa Rica - world-renowned for its abundance of rainforests, cloud forests, jungles and volcanoes.
