Guest Video From Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands I love my job as Program Director for Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands anyway, but when I begin my Monday morning by opening an email from a just returned traveler and seeing an outstanding video of his family having the time of their lives makes even a not-so-great day fade to the background. Two families, long-time friends, traveling through the Ecuadorian countryside and onto the Galapagos Islands. As Bryan (the videographer) says “I am glad you all enjoyed it. Thanks for arranging the trip, the video was easy to make with all the great footage and good times.” This just puts a giant smile on anyone’s face, it says EVERYTHING about the experience of traveling with your loved ones to very special places on our planet! Check out their video: Your friendly Ecuador travel guru, Sherry Howland You might also like my last blog: The Joy of Creating Memorable Adventures...
Traversing Mountains and Cultures with Paula and Frank Paula and Frank just returned from their Hiker’s Patagonia trip to Chile and Argentina- their FOURTH Wildland Adventure! Here they share their personal highlights, thoughts on guides and advice for future travelers. Please enjoy some of their incredible pictures of Patagonia that truly convey the remote, wild and magnificent splendor that this untamed austral landscape has to offer. HIGHLIGHTS: "We enjoyed the hiking experiences the most. Torres del Paine and the Fitzroy range were our major goals, and we were lucky enough to have 2 out of 3 days in each place for good visibility. I enjoyed Chile more than Argentina for the other aspects of the trip. The hotel in Santiago was excellent. The food in all of Chile was great – especially the vegetarian options. The accommodations at Patagonia Camp were perfect. We also liked the room at Alta Vista, in El Calafate, Argentina. All the people along...

The Osa Peninsula is just...Wow! Happy travelers share their experience after joining our Into the Wilds of the Osa Peninsula Adventure. As a special birthday celebration we arranged for them to have a surprise lunch by the waterfalls at Lapa Rios which they loved!  Who doesn’t appreciate having a trip filled with little surprises and with the opportunity to meet local characters who shared their enthusiasm and passion for their country.  The Osa Peninsula is a great place to pamper yourself amidst the lush tropical rainforest and there's no better scenario that can bring you into a state of relaxation than the soft music of birds chirping from dawn to dusk.  It makes a perfect getaway for girlfriends who want to get away from it all!   Here is what the Brown sisters had to share with us: "Hi Grettel, Wow, thank you! We had an absolutely amazing time in Costa Rica. And everything went very smoothly...

Navigating the Skies of SE Asia It seems rare to hear someone say they’re traveling solely to Vietnam...or only to Cambodia. More often than not, people are traveling to the ethereal region of Southeast Asia, combining several countries into one trip. In the past few years, the region has worked hard to increase the number and quality of flights, to expedite border crossings, and to reduce the hassle of getting multiple visas. Until recently, 2 weeks might have only been enough time to see Vietnam due to the hassle of traveling overland or the limitation of just one flight per week to Cambodia. Now, with improved overland routes and abundant air connections, we can offer 12 day itineraries that span Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia without breaking the bank. If you want your next trip to SE Asia to cover a lot of ground, be sure to take advantage of the frequent flights between major cities. The...

This has been an adventure! Alumni travelers, Muki and Charlie, just returned from a 22-day custom adventure to Chile and Argentina.  After adventuring high into the Atacama Desert to find a rare yareto plant, trekking through Torres del Paine, following Magellan and Darwin’s legacies around Cape Horn, making new personal connections in El Calafate and ending in Buenos Aires, they had quite the story!   “We chose this itinerary after we looked at multiple Patagonia itineraries from different companies. This trip seemed to have the right combination of travel in the right areas. We liked the 4 day ship being part of the itinerary and Charlie liked the add-on of the Atacama Desert. We liked the itinerary starting in Chile and ending in Argentina. The level of activity also seemed doable for us. And last, we had been very pleased with our trip to Costa Rica with Wildland. PERSONAL HIGHLIGHTS: Charlie: Absolutely overwhelmed by the...
