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...

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...

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...

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...

Reciprocal Learning though Responsible Tourism in Peru

Reciprocal Learning though Responsible Tourism in Peru
Wildland Adventures was founded on the principle that culturally and environmentally responsible travel can be a powerful force for change. Tourism should contribute to conservation and benefit local communities. As part of our community outreach, Wildland Adventures and our partners in Peru have begun to donate to Amantani in honor of guests who travel with us to Peru. Amantani is a non-governmental, non-profit organization (NGO) working to help indigenous Quechua children in the region of Cusco, Peru. This highly effective program provides safe housing, educational opportunities and cultural activities to children ages 7 to 18 years old. Amantani, "invites you to re-imagine the relationship between the world’s so-called poor and those in a position to help. It’s time...to move away from pity and assumptions of cultural superiority, towards reciprocal connections based on respect and mutual understanding". In the interest of reciprocity, one of the Amantani children, Yuri, would like to share...
