Information about the trek

We will trek across coffee plantations and oak forests into dense tropical rainforest, taking in Costa Rica’s highest active volcano. Costa Rica’s rainforests are world-famous for their diversity – and this is an incredible opportunity to experience one of the world’s most incredible eco-systems, all while raising money for the UK’s leading charity for girls and young women.

This is a tough, strenuous challenge over a range of wild terrain – it’s adventurous, rewarding and a world away from the norm!

How fit do you need to be?

Previous challenge participant who trekked to Machu Picchu

The best bit for me was meeting wonderful people from all over the UK and climbing Dead Women’s Pass, which I didn’t think I would accomplish.
