MYTHBUSTERS: South American Land Travel and Transport South America is a culturally rich and diverse and geographically varied continent. When traveling to South America it is important to understand that each country, though often recognized for its iconic tourist attractions, is not solely that singular highlight. Each country boasts a vast array of, architectural styles, historical backgrounds, languages (and accents for that matter), rural towns, transportation, crops, landscapes and wildlife. It is easy to dedicate a week to a lifetime in each country in South America and continuously stumble upon new sights, sounds, foods and traditions. I highly recommend, before trying to jump from one well-known place to the next, to take the local transit, attempt a conversation with a local and explore the paths less traveled for a truly unique and enlightening experience.  Though planes are definitely the fastest way to reach most South America travel destinations, they are often times much more expensive and they are...

Spring break without the crazies Galapagos is a terrific Spring Break destination, it rivals Christmas & New Years as one of the most popular time periods for families. The great thing about our Galapagos Adventure Cruise is we can intentionally juggle passenger loads so that 1 yacht has families with younger kids (ages 6-11, 12 years), another has mid-older teens, and the third is adults only. So any travelers to the Galapagos who prefer it, can be completely free from kids in general. And of course, Galapagos National Park rules strictly forbid any food or drink (except water) to be brought onto the pristine islands, so no one has to worry about stepping around beer bottles, pizza boxes or fast food wrappers! And if anyone does get too rowdy, you can always toss them overboard... Your friendly Galapagos expert, Sherry Howland Got questions about trips to the Galapagos?

Breaking deals in the Galapagos! The daylight is getting scarcer and temperatures are dropping in the Northern Hemisphere, but Equatorial South America remains in perpetual summer. If you’re not ready to surrender to Winter yet, Wildland Adventures has a great deal for you! Two of our most exclusive Galapagos yachts, the 48-passenger M/Y Eclipse and 16-passenger M/C Athala, are offering 15% off their 8 day/7 night voyages. That is a savings of up to $800 on selected sailings. Travel dates are: 27 Nov-7 Dec, 4-14 December, and 11-21 December (Eclipse) and 20-30 November, 11-21 December (Athala). If you’re wondering why else (besides terrific prices) you should consider traveling during this time, look no further than my recent blog about Galapagos in the Fall. November and December mark the beginning of mating season and hatching season for many Galapagos critters, and the weather is in the mid-70s. Perfect for kayaking and snorkeling with playful sea lion...

Great News for Galapagos Conservation! We here at Wildland Adventures are thrilled to hear the news that conservationists associated with the State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry have brought back a unique species of giant tortoise on the island of Espanola! Once thought to be extinct in the late 50s, Chelonoidis hoodensis has grown from 15 individuals to now 1000 tortoises, each of which can potentially live up to 200 years. This is a major win for the diversity of giant tortoises on the islands, and our congratulations go out to Professor James Gibbs and his team. All Wildland Adventures travelers to the Galapagos have at least one opportunity to visit tortoise breeding centers like the one responsible for this tremendous success, and our travelers’ optional contribution to the International Galapagos Tour Operators Association goes toward programs exactly like this one as well as other conservation endeavors. We invite you...
When the travel gods give you bad weather- keep calm and…drink wine! Currently in Argentina there are several severe wind storms, mainly within the province of Buenos Aires, passing through the country. This has resulted in much pandemonium around flight delays and cancellations including two of our own traveler’s flights from Mendoza to Buenos Aires. I checked in with these guests this morning to let them know that we were adjusting their itinerary so as not to miss important excursions in their next destination and that we had alerted the next hotel they would be arriving later than expected. They told me that they were having a ball and taking advantage of the extra time to do some additional wine tasting in Mendoza. I loved this attitude and think that it perfectly embodies the go-with-the-flow nature we all must strive for while traveling when circumstances out of our control arise. Why not make something great of it? This underlies howwe, the Wildland Team,...
