Where will YOU Greet 2016? The New Year is a fresh start, a perfect time to set the course for the year to come. What better way to do that than cruising the iconic Galapagos Islands, onboard a luxury yacht? January is the perfect time to see green sea turtles nesting, while Espanola's marine iguanas turn a brilliant red to attract mates as the courtship period gets into full swing for marine and the giant land iguanas!  The water is calm and warmer, the holiday crowds have returned home, the world - and year - are reborn!   Two of our favorite vessels, the 48 passenger Eclipse and the 16 passenger catamaran Athala are sweetening the deal with great prices on select departures!  Onboard the Eclipse, save big on the North Central itinerary for the Thursday-Saturday departures of 1/14-23 and 1/28-2/6, or the South Central itinerary on Thursday-Saturday departures 1/21-30 and 2/4-13.  The Athala's South...

Opting For Adventure & Giving Back Wildland is opting to close our office this Black Friday to encourage our staff, friends and family to get out, give thanks and enjoy the wild. We have a lot to be thankful for as we approach our 30th anniversary and what better time to say thanks than Thanksgiving? This year we're giving thanks to an incredible cause and you can too! A young Wildland traveler, 12-year-old Jamie Eisner, who recently returned from a family safari in Tanzania has taken on the monumental task of raising money to build a well for a school she visited. “Before I visited Tanzania, I took for granted that I have easy access to water whenever I want, air conditioning, plenty of food, medicine, a great education, and so much more. The children at Mikocheni have none of this, but we can give them something that would change their lives,” explains Jamie. “With the well, the kids will do...

Empanadas Para Morirse! // Empanadas to Die For! When I was 15 I moved to a small town in the Pampas of Argentina as an exchange student. Knowing absolutely no Spanish upon arrival (besides hola and la cucaracha- neither being the most helpful), I found numerous other ways to communicate with my local family and hosts- my favorite being through food! Learning a culture’s culinary traditions is by far and away one of the best ways to gain new perspectives on who people are and where they come from. My host mom and I immediately hit it off as I started learning to cook some of Argentina’s favorite dishes from her. One of my favorite dishes, that I still love to bake with friends and family, is Empanadas. Empanadas are the beloved comfort food of much of Latin America and come in numerous sizes, shapes and delicious flavor variations. The name Empanada comes from the Spanish word “empanar”...

Camera Gear For Adventure Photography Probably the coolest aspect of my job, aside from traveling the world, is the opportunity to document my trips with photos and video. Luckily for me, I’m really into photography. When I was in college, I got started taking photos of skiing and snowboarding. Then I began packing my DSLR on all of my trips and I’m absolutely sure that submitting photos from my adventures helped me land my current job. Now photography and videography are a large part of what I do and magazines like AFAR have featured my work. This year I've been on two work trips and I've decided to share a bit about my gear for the budding photographers out there. My first trip was 3 weeks of adventures in Southeast Asia and the most recent trip was a 3 week trip to Chile to attend the Adventure Travel World Summit. The following photo won the adventure photo...
Best Bang for Your Buck on the Blue Dollar Rate in Argentina I often get questions from our travelers about the Blue Market Dollar Rate in Argentina and thought it would be a good idea to write about it for those trying to get the best bang for their buck so to speak while traveling in Argentina. In Argentina there 3 official exchange rates: 1) The real estate rate (not important for travelers) 2) The Official bank exchange rate (around 1 USD to approx 9 Argentine Pesos) 3) The Blue Market rate (around 1 USD approx 14 ARS) Travelers will of course only get the official rate at ATMs in Argentina and if they exchange money in the banks. The best way to take advantage of the Blue Market Rate is by bringing US cash ($20, $50 and/or $100 notes) and exchanging money at your hotels. Almost all hotels will gladly exchange your US cash at a much higher rate than what...
