THE WILD’S CALLING: PATAGONIA AND PERU Attention last minute travelers and methodical trip planners a like! Having just come back from a 5 week trip to South America, I wanted to take the time to say that I am happy to be back here at the Wildland office and I am equally excited to help spread the energy and enthusiasm I have rekindled for some of my favorite places in the world to our wild travelers. As the weather is beginning to change and winter is starting to peak its grey, cold and rainy head around the bend, I would like to take a moment to talk about travel to Peru and trips to Patagonia and planning a last minute trip before winter really kicks in (for those last minute planners) or a trip that you can look forward to through the most bitter months and reward yourself with on the other side (for those more...

The Good Life: Galapagos in Fall Are you not quite ready to give up Summer? Are you craving one last adventure before heading into the Winter months and holiday craziness? Think about the Galapagos Islands!! The Fall months are a terrific time to travel to Darwin’s Enchanted Islands. The wildlife – while always stellar – is especially endearing from September through November. Penguin couples are courting on Bartolome Island, baby sea lions (NOTHING in the world is more adorable) are widely distributed and inviting you to play snorkel-tag. Fuzzy-headed blue-footed booby chicks are easily seen on Espanola and Isabela Islands, and fur sea lions are in mating season, with the roaring tussels between huge males reminiscent of gladiators in their arena. November also brings a chance to watch the Giant Waved albatross chicks perfect their soaring flights before the entire population sets off to sea from Espanola. They then remain floating on the thermals from mid-December...

Leave all that behind and give your family the ultimate winter getaway at a tropical destinations where the sun shines throughout the year.

Vietnam and Cambodia through the eyes of locals The Wildland difference is we send our travelers into remote corners of our world to see countries through the eyes of the locals. Our new Ultimate Vietnam and Cambodia is a perfect opportunity to do just that: work alongside a Vietnamese farmer in a valley near Hoi An and talk to a war photographer in Ho Chi Minh City. Stay with a family in Cho Lach and learn how they make a living with crafts such as weaving and brick-making. Explore the isolated Khmer ruins in Cambodia and relax as guests at a family home in a small village. Meet street kids at a restaurant in Pnomh Penh where they work to gain experience in the hospitality industry. There are plenty more amazing historical and natural sites we will visit on this incredible new journey, too many to list in just one blog! With these intimate experiences at hand, you will...
From an Expert: Five Tips for Booking Last Minute Airfare Guest Blog from Isaac Hilpman, Director of Partner Accounts at Exito Travel.  As a travel professional specializing in international airfare I am often asked for advice about purchasing last minute tickets. So while the only guarantee with airfare is that it is going to change, here are some suggestions for my fellow travelers. Tip #1: Don’t do it! Waiting until the last minute to book flights is a big mistake if you want ideal routings and inexpensive fares. Airfare is based on availability. Generally speaking, the closer one is to their date of departure the fuller the flights and thus the higher the price. Additionally, the airlines have what are referred to as advanced purchase requirements. These requirements state that tickets must be purchased fourteen to fifty days prior to departure for the best rates in a given market. A massive airfare consolidator recently analyzed more than four million flights booked...
