We have teamed up with Girlguiding UK to offer this amazing opportunity.
Trek across coffee plantations and oak forests into the 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 while raising money for a really great cause. All money raised goes directly towards our work with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world.
This is a tough, strenuous challenge over a range of wild terrain – it’s adventurous, rewarding and a world away from the norm!
