The Joy of Creating Memorable Adventures We routinely receive glowing reviews from our Galapagos travelers, which is not surprising. The Galapagos Islands are on so many “MUST SEE!” lists for very good reasons. One of my favorites comes from a single mom who recently took her 10-year-old daughter to the Galapagos:  “This trip has inspired me to continue with this type of travel - it was a life time experience. Loved sharing it with my daughter and being able to see her relate and understand and learn - the Family part of the trip was perfect in that regard. On our flight home she talked of doing her 5th grade science project on Ecuador and the equator - that says it all!” That does “say it all!” If there is any single thing I strive to accomplish as the Galapagos & Ecuador Program Director, it is to assist in inspiring travelers – especially 10-year-old travelers –...

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. Truly, we had fun with all and felt all were professional and enthusiastic. We really enjoyed time with the guides as we could really pick their brains about the areas, culture, society, etc. None disappointed and it really helps to get the feel of an area when you can spend a lot of time with someone who...
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...

4-Time Alumni Do Peru! Melinda and John are 4 time Wildland Alumni and returned from a custom trip to Peru that included, focus on organic gardens and community in the Sacred Valley, a inspiring time in Machu Picchu, hiking in the Colca Canyon-deepest canyon in the world, exploration in the famous white-stone city of Arequipa and ended with a culinary and artistic bang in Lima!   “Gretchen, you helped us plan this trip, and we thank you so much! No complaints, it was a great trip. We just want to let the Wildland team know of a few exceptional experiences/places!   Our favorite hotel (and they were all good) was El Albergue. We loved the atmosphere in the cafe, where folks off the train and hotel guests mingled. The food was exceptional, and the Pachamanca a fun experience. The focus on organic gardens, the school for sustainability, the seed saving process were so gratifying...

I Loved It All Suzy and her husband participated in part of a custom trip to Patagonia with four of their friends, cruising from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia, ice trekking on Perito Moreno Glacier and hiking in Torres del Paine. “The cruise and landing at Cape Horn was really fantastic! We had a beautiful (for Cape Horn) sunny day and even got to observe sea lions sunning on the rocks prior to landing at Cape Horn. The climb on the Perito Moreno glacier outside of El Calafante was very special and one of the other highlights for Bob and me. Finally, the hikes in Torres del Paine were extraordinary with fabulous scenery and great exercise. Although some of the hikes were more challenging for me than I expected, I loved it all. Our guides throughout were very well informed and enthusiastic.Magdaly in El Calafante was very well informed, as were both Maca and Claudio...
