Let's Go to Greece My son, Benjamin, and I are so excited to be landing in Greece this summer and we are inviting you to join us on our Escorted Family Adventure in the Peloponnese & Cyclades this August 17-30th! We are gathering a small group of like-minded, adventurous families to climb to hill-top temples with us, hike through river canyons, and explore the white-washed island streets. After Benjamin completed a Greek Mythology unit in his 5th grade class, we decided now is the perfect time to visit the mythical birthplace of our favorite gods: Athena, Apollo and Artemis. We can’t wait to walk in the actual places where many of these tales were said to take place. It certainly helps that the ancient sites are adjacent to the lovely Aegean Sea where we can swim in the crystal water and relax on the warm sands. Plus the Greek food is legendary! We will...

Nicaragua with children? Si! Nicaragua is an ideal family destination. Explore volcanoes and, wildlife nature reserves, sleepy surf towns with endless unspoiled beaches, charming colonial cities to explore by horse-drawn carriage, bike, or on foot.  Family friendly hotels offer kid-style cuisine, hammocks for napping and free form swimming pools along with plenty of outdoor activities for children 5 and older up. Recently a Wildland family traveled with their 6 and 10 year olds who enjoyed sports matches with local children chocolate tasting at the Chocolate Museum and discovered pottery making at a local artisan’s house. Shared activities are fun and rewarding for locals and Wildland travelers as it creates a sense of unity and joy knowing your adventure is contributing to the economic well-being of local communities while preserving their culture, traditions and environment.  Laurie shared the following with us from her family trip to Nicaragua.  "One of the main reasons we chose this...

Have fun getting off-the-beaten-path I just got a review from a family who loved their participation on our Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure, because of all the great activities and exposure to the local Caribbean culture. The idea was to create a trip which engages travelers to participate and where they can feel more like guests than tourists. The connection that is created when travelers learn from locals daily lives and their traditions. We are not satisfied with just taking guests off the beaten path on this trip, we take guests deep inside a part of Costa Rica where traditional life prevails. A place where they can interact meaningfully with local people and indigenous cultures. Very few adventure travelers ever have this experience, because many native indigenous people of Costa Rica are isolated in reservations and remote areas. Having the chance to interact with local people is one of the things people enjoy the most,...

Absolutely Great Time in Borneo Guest review from our Untamed Borneo Adventure I have travelled extensively and it is very rare to find such a combination of friendly helpful people, secure and safe surroundings and incredibly unique and varied wildlife as what we had in Borneo. The lodges/resorts were very good and really went out of their way to provide an excellent experience for the guests. The river cruises were superb, our guide at Borneo Rainforest Lodge found us some of the world's rarest birds and the snorkeling at Sipadan Island was astounding. Thanks for a great experience.   Sipadan was great. They took the divers on 3 "dives" per day. One day was at Sipadan Island. It was fantastic, really unbelievable. I have done some snorkeling in the Galapagos and other places, but this was truly outstanding.    I have had many very experienced travelers tell me that Borneo Rainforest Lodge was one of the...

Travel Seminars: Adventures in Morocco April 26, 2014 at 10am - The Savvy Traveler (Edmonds, WA) will be hosting a travel seminar on adventures in Morocco presented by Wildland Adventures President Kurt Kutay. About the event: Travel to Morocco on an all encompassing odyssey following ancient caravan routes of the Maghreb. This program delves deep into the exotic culture and diverse landscapes from the walled Imperial Cities seemingly suspended in time, through scenic high-Atlas Mountain passes and cliff-clinging kasbahs, among remarkably well preserved Roman ruins, and riding camels through the shifting dunes of the mighty Sahara to our camp in the desert. Colorful and vibrant Marrakech and the medieval souks of the Fez medina are introductions to Morocco's rich culture of art and craft. What really makes a Morocco Wildland Adventure extraordinary are connections in local communities and the gregarious hospitality, flavorful cuisine and lavish Moorish-style of the boutique accommodations. Our in-depth exploration of the...
