Croatia - The Dalmatian Coast
The Wayfarers

Croatia - The Dalmatian Coast

Croatia's historic walled city, Dubrovnik, is the starting point for this eight-day journey through one of Europe's most diverse and beautiful countries.

Following paths through cypress woods and medieval towns, we explore Croatia's sleepy harbor towns and villages, and the milk-white limestone buildings that recall a bygone Mediterranean. We discover ancient monasteries and cathedrals, meander along rambling streets and through dramatic gorges.

A highlight of this Walk is the private boat-trip from the foot of Vidova Gora Mountain, which takes us to a secluded terrace restaurant overlooking the sea where we dine on fresh fish caught that morning.

Into the Wilds of the Osa Peninsula
Wildland Adventures

Into the Wilds of the Osa Peninsula

 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. A great adventure for teens and young adults!
