The Wayfarers

Italy - Sicily ~ Ragusa, Siracusa & Mt Etna

Sicily's pathways are timeless from the uplands of Ragusa, the gorge of Cava d'Ispica and the stunning Greek legacy in Siracusa, to Taormina where Roman nobility built their villas.

Walking in sight of the sea almost every day we hike Mount Etna's smoldering flanks, stroll the shore front in Siracusa, once a capital of Classical antiquity, and enjoy spectacular birdlife and coastal walking in the Vendicari Nature Reserve.

And the food!  Try arancino - a meal-in-itself golden rice ball - for lunch, an unbelievable selection of the freshest seafood for dinner, and treat yourself to luscious cannoli at any time!

 Venture deep into the heart of Corcovado National Park to explore and discover the vast, pristine rainforest wilderness of Costa Rica’s remote Osa Peninsula, identified by National Geographic as “One of the most biologically intense places on the planet.” Based from the premier ecolodges of La Paloma and Lapa Rios located on each side of Corcovado National Park, we hike, kayak, snorkel, swim, and explore miles of wilderness trails and waterways among the rainforests, rivers, waterfalls and pristine tropical beaches of the Osa. Everywhere colorful scarlet macaws fly overhead and monkeys cavort in the forest canopy. We spot spectacular tropical bird species and are always on the lookout for tapir, anteaters, coatimundi, peccary herds and other wildlife. We travel by boat along the wilderness coastline to reach the Sirena Ranger Station where jungle cats including puma and jaguar roam, and then either hike or fly out of this jungle wilderness.  Local research biologists share firsthand the Yaguara Wild Cats Conservation Project supported by proceeds from your trip to protect the neotropical felines of the Osa.   We engage local people who share their stories about life in the wilds of Costa Rica.
