Unlocking the Mediterranean What's my favorite Wildland Adventure? I'm often asked what my favorite Wildland Adventure is...and I have to say, I love Turkey! And I'm not alone, our Turquoise Coast Odyssey consistently receives rave reviews as one of the most culturally rich trips of a lifetime. I admit. I'm biased. I have traveled to Turkey all my life to visit my Turkish relatives. Travel with us to Turkey and you're greeted as family by our exceptionally knowledgeable and fun-loving guides. Meet Alper Ertubey!  He has been leading Wildland Adventures for 29 years, and has introduced scores of our travelers to their favorite home away from home.  He's also the one to talk to about food...passionate about the cuisine of his homeland, there is no one better to share a meal and a drink (or two) with, Şerefe! The combination of experiences on our Turquoise Coast Odyssey is second to none; exploring the bazaars and backstreets of Istanbul, hiking surreal landscapes leading to subterranean churches in Cappadocia, and a relaxing voyage along...
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...

Peru Travel for 2015! Now that the new year is starting to pick up pace, I wanted to take the time to plant the seed of excitement for Peru travel in 2015 and share my experiences from my trip last year. In August, I set out to Peru for four weeks of exploring the contrasting, ancient-modern urban centers, traversing the Inca Trail, piranha fishing and swimming in the Amazon, boating on Lake Titicaca, and eating the best ceviche of my life in a quiet fishing village on the sea, all the while surrounded by warm, inviting and inspiring people. After having lived between Seattle and Argentina for almost nine years, Peru was an exciting window to another invigorating facet of Latin America’s rich diversity.   CUSCO My trip to Peru began in Cusco and it was largely a sensory experience. At 11,150 ft, I recall stepping out of the plane in Cusco and feeling...

The essence of the countries is in its people This year I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala for a week and on a comprehensive 16 day trip to Belize, what a treat! Every time I visit Guatemala I’m amazed by the richness of its culture. Just imagine over 21 different indigenous Mayan populations fused with Spanish and European populations. One of my favorite things is to stroll around all the different villages near the Atitlan Lake where ancient Mayan dialect is still the primary language, which is uncommon to see in larger cities throughout Central American these days. It's a chance to really learn about their way of life: weaving the most intricate huipiles, teaching their natural dyeing techniques, etc. The Mayan influence is very strong everywhere you look, I think no other country has more international identity than Guatemala. To top it all our guide was able to spot a jaguar in the jungles of Tikal,...

Exploring Peru and Argentina for 30 Days Beginning with a trip to visit family and friends in Stockholm, Berlin and Bulgaria, 2014 commenced with a festive bang! This was just the warm up though, for what was yet to come. In August, I set out to Peru for four weeks of exploring the contrasting, ancient-modern urban centers, trekking the Inca Trail, piranha fishing and swimming in the Amazon, boating on Lake Titicaca, and eating the best ceviche of my life in a quiet fishing village on the sea. All the while surrounded by warm, inviting and inspiring people. After having lived between Seattle and Argentina for almost nine years, Peru was an exciting window to another invigorating facet of Latin America’s rich diversity. Peru is a land of contrast as much geographically, as it is culturally, architecturally, visually, and gastronomically. In the west, the coast is dry, tracing its way north and south along the Pacific. To...
