Piranha Fishing & Machu Picchu

Piranha Fishing & Machu Picchu
This Wild family of three just returned from a custom adventure to Machu Picchu and the Amazon.  After hiking a segment of the Inca Trail, getting a taste of Peru’s cutting edge culinary delights, mountain biking through the highlands and ending piranha fishing in the Amazon, they had quite a few stories to share! “Gretchen, thanks to you and the entire Wildland Adventures team, we enjoyed a fantastic vacation!  Started off very well with your recommendation and subsequent reservation at Casa Moreyra, Astird & Gaston in Lima for our first amazing dinner (Astird introduced herself and we had a very nice chat J).   Accommodations, activities and most importantly, the Wildland Adventures representatives, drivers and naturalists/guides throughout our Peruvian adventure were top-notch!   Today alone, I’ve mentioned/recommended Wildland Adventures multiple times to friends at work. Top on my list; Piranha fishing, mountain biking, Inca Trail to Sun Gate & Huayna Picchu/Wayna Picchu.  ...

Nepal Night a Tremendous Success!

Nepal Night a Tremendous Success!
Thank you to everyone who came out to help support Wildland Adventures’ efforts to put solar panels on five schools in Nepal. Our event was successful beyond our wildest dreams thanks to our generous community, netting over $5,500!  Over 60 people came out in a show of support for the students of Nepal. The event was held at The Himalayan Sherpa House, a local Nepali restaurant here in Seattle. It provided the perfect atmosphere for our event and everyone got to learn how to make momos! The panels will be placed on schools in the Singla and Tapeljung districts and set up this fall. Having light available to the teachers and students will facilitate a higher degree of learning and student engagement. Can you imagine trying to learn in the dark? Neither can we! We offer gratitude on behalf of the hundreds of students who will be able to learn with...

Meet Your Guides: Ajai Kumar Yadav

Meet Your Guides: Ajai Kumar Yadav
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of a trip to India are the guides. How well a guide gets along with you, a Wildland traveler, can make or break a trip. Wildland puts a lot of effort into finding the best guides for every area that we travel to. We focus on using local guides in each area, ensuring that these guides possess a seemingly unlimited wealth of knowledge about their area of expertise. The last time I went to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better. Ajai is actually certified to guide all of Northern India but loves introducing travelers to his hometown of Varanasi best. It's obvious the depth of love and knowledge he has for this spiritual hub as you walk and talk your way through narrow alleyways or cruise down the ghats together....

Bringing Wild Light and Hope to Nepal

Bringing Wild Light and Hope to Nepal
Early last year, a massive 7.8 earthquake rocked Nepal killing thousands.  The devastation was widespread, destroying nearly a million homes and more than 10,000 schools.  To support Nepal's ongoing efforts to rebuild, Wildland Adventures has partnered with 3 Summits for Nepal for the Charity Climb for Nepal.  Four of our staff will be climbing to the summit of Mt. Rainier July 28-30th to help raise awareness of this issue and the necessary funds to make a difference. These funds will go directly to purchase solar panels for four village schools that are still without power, bringing light and hope that they have been without for over a year. Please support our Wild cause! Help us reach our goal of $5,000 to bring solar power to four village schools by donating to our cause on our fundraising page. With your help, Wildland Adventures has been supporting environmental and social causes around the globe for the past 30 years. Please consider a donation to our Wild cause! Below you'll find some...
