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!

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.
