Important Inka Trail Information and Inka Trail Alternatives The Inka Trail Trek is one of our most popular trekking itineraries- for good reason! Not only is the landscape geographically stunning with snowcapped, jagged peaks and lush green valleys brimming with crimson and ivory orchids and hummingbirds of all sizes and colors, it is the road that connects the most Incan scared sites in the shortest distance with Machu Picchu as the ultimate finale! As the trekking season in Peru is ramping up, I would like to take the time to talk about some important information surrounding availability and additionally take a moment to present some alternative, and equally great hiking options to Machu Picchu. The hiking permits that the Peruvian government administers and regulates have been completely sold out for this year from April-August. There are still permits available for September-December but they are also going very quickly. For those wishing to procure permits to do the Inka...

Foodie Paradise and Trekking in Patagonia Barbara and Dennis just returned from our Hiker's Patagonia trip and, as they are foodies, we set up a special culinary tour in Buenos Aires at the end for them. Touring Buenos Aires from a gastronomic standpoint is such great a way to connect with the city from a different, more local view and an awesome way to immerse yourself in Argentina's culture and rich history. Ultiamtely, who doesn’t want to meet locals and visit their favorite hot spots for delicious food and wine while in Argentina?!   "Every single guide was great.

Trekking, Kayaks, Scotch and Wine: Doing Chile Right with John and Nicole John and Nicole just got back from celebrating their birthdays on an incredible 12-day, custom, multisport adventure in Chile.  From trekking in Torres del Paine, to a three-day kayaking trip down the Serrano River, to drinking scotch with ice fresh from a glacier, to wine tasting and horseback riding at the elegantly rustic and luxurious Matetic Vineyards, they truly embodied our Wild Style and then some! "This "trip of a lifetime" was all that, and more!  Pretty much enjoyed every bit of the trip: lodging meals, transfers and guide staff were all great. On day 2 of our kayak trip we were blown away by the grandeur and magnificent scale of the place...truly jaw-dropping. Will Copestake, our kayaking guide, was a joy to get to know and we became fast friends. Weʼve always found the people in Latin America to be very warm, welcoming and FUN. The Chileans were no...

Reports since January 2015 confirm that the spread of Eboloa has waned in West Africa and never spread into Eastern or Southern Africa.   In regards to travel to Africa, the CDC warns against travel to the affected countries in West Africa.

The info graphics below help put that distance and the sheer size of the African continent into perspective.    Due to the extreme distances and geographical barriers between Eastern and...
