Imagine travelling to a far off exotic destination with a group of people you may not have met before and experiencing some of the most spectacular scenery and inspiring culture the world has to offer. Sounds like an idyllic holiday, right?
Now imagine you are travelling across that country on foot or two wheels, undertaking a daily battle with wild terrain and tropical weather, where around every corner and over every hill there is another incredible view or experience to be had. And imagine you could undertake that journey in the knowledge that you are raising funds for a cause that makes a daily difference to the lives of hundreds of people.
The Ocorian 2017 Challenge is a biennial event that draws the very best from people in terms of personal endeavour and generosity and now is the chance for you to sign up for the 2017 event in Costa Rica. But beware, this is no vacation: you can either cycle or trek from coast to coast in the Caribbean country – a distance of over 480 kilometres for the cyclists and approx 100 kilometres for the trekkers – and on the way you will encounter rain forest, volcanoes, quiet village communities and striking colonial towns. It will be the journey of a lifetime that will make a difference to the lives of others.
The Challenge appeals to anyone who is looking for a tough adventure to test themselves while visiting remote or off-the tourist beaten track parts of some of the most beautiful countries in the world.
The cycle challenge takes place from 2 – 12 November 2017
The trek challenge takes place from 11 – 22 November 2017
