Traveler's Against Plastic in Action

Traveler's Against Plastic in Action
Wildland is a proud supporter and co-founder of Traveler's Against Plastic (TAP), a non-profit initiative encouraging travelers to bring a reusable water bottle when they travel. Millions of water bottles get discarded all around the world each year, and as travelers we have the responsibility to protect and conserve the amazing destinations we visit. Parker Mason, an intrepid Wildland traveler, just returned from abroad and relayed the following to us: "I really want to commend you guys on your support of the Travelers Against Plastic campaign. I'm only sorry it's not a better photo, because this scene was disturbing and all too common. It shows one of the things I will always remember and it's not very nice. We bought a Steri-Pen. It worked fine. After seeing scenes like this, we were much better about using it and certainly better about watching what happened to plastic water bottles. And I pledge...

I had no idea Peru was so gorgeous!

I had no idea Peru was so gorgeous!
This family of four just returned from a week-long trip to the Andean highlands and was blown away by Peru’s beauty. “We had an amazing time. We all loved Peru and said it's the best family trip we've had. Everything was incredible. I had wanted to go to Machu Picchu and I was celebrating a big birthday this year. Several friends had used Wildland and had excellent trips and so we decided to plan something with you for Peru. Peru was easy to get to and allowed us to do a short enough trip to schedule with my adult children. I had no idea Peru was so gorgeous. It was an eye opener. We enjoyed everything. Machu Picchu was magical. Lima was probably our least favorite place, however, our guide did a great job of making the city feel smaller and more special. It was the perfect amount of time for...

Focus on TCT: Jhai Coffee House, Laos

Focus on TCT: Jhai Coffee House, Laos
One thing I love about working in the adventure travel industry is the small world experiences that seem to happen across the globe. Jhai Coffee is one such example and we're proud to support this philanthropic coffee house in Southern Laos as one of our Traveler's Conservation Trust projects.  Tyson Adams, the founder of Jhai Coffee, grew up in Ephrata, WA. After graduating he worked in Laos at a non-profit where he fell in love with the country and saw an opportunity to create change at the Boliven Plateau in Southern Laos. He returned three years ago and started Jhai Coffee, the world's first philanthropic coffee roaster located at the source. In just three years Jhai has built 15 clean water wells in the surrounding villages, educated hundreds of children on proper hygeine, and brought Laos coffee to international market.  Coffee is the lifeblood of the Boliven Plateau. This region of Laos is...

Why You Should Be Planning Your Trip to Brazil Now

Why You Should Be Planning Your Trip to Brazil Now
During the past year, I had the mind-blowing opportunity to spend almost two collective months on adventure trips in Brazil. Between sleeping in the Amazon canopy, working with local communities, trail running with monkeys, experiencing the Pantaneiro (cowboy) lifestyle in the wetlands, spelunking into caves, snorkeling in crystal clear rivers, admiring vibrant street art over a few cold cervejas with locals in the hip urban centers and trekking through ancient mountains and small villages lost in time, Brazil quickly stole my heart and has become one of my new personal favorite destinations. This massive country has so much to offer and has somehow managed to fly under the radar for far too long. This summer (June-September) is the ultimate chance for travelers hungry for unrivaled adventure to come and see what Brazil is all about (and it’s a lot more than Carnival and Rio de Janeiro!). Whether you travel to Brazil in search...
