Worldwide Trek 2024: Costa Rica

Worldwide Trek 2024

In 2019 Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Canada joined forces with a group of 60 supporters to complete the first Worldwide Trek, the famous Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru. In 2022, we had our second Trek along the Laugavegur Trail through the Icelandic Lava Fields and in 2023 our third Trek had participants trekking through the Sahara Desert in Morocco.

Our trekkers have a raised a combined total of $830,000 to support CF Canada's work to improve the lives of every Canadian living with CF. If you want to have an impact on people living with CF and make memories that will last a lifetime this Trek is for you! Please join us this year for the 2024 Worldwide Trek: Challenge Costa Rica!

Escape the cold Canadian Novembers with an incredible trekking and rafting challenge around Costa Rica. You will trek through coffee plantations, dense rainforests and visit indigenous communities. Take on some challenging descents reaching incredible views of the rainforest, experiencing first-hand the amazing biodiversity and natural beauty of Costa Rica.

The challenge includes an exhilarating rafting section of the Pacuare River, through virgin rainforest, cascading waterfalls and river carved canyons, slowly giving way to ubiquitous banana plantations. From the highest active volcano in Irazu to the Cahuita National Park, celebrate finishing your challenge by taking a final dip in the Caribbean sea. The challenge will test you physically, but this is the most incredible way to experience Costa Rica - world-renowned for its abundance of rainforests, cloud forests, jungles and volcanoes.
