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...
Mountains, Roses and Champagne: 30th Anniversary in Chile Alumni travelers, Jim and Laurie celebrated their 30th anniversary by doing a custom 8-day trip to Chile. Beginning in Santiago, they then flew down to Torres del Paine and stayed at the romatnic Patagonia Camp while hiking amongst the iconic peaks of this national park and ended at the luxurious Singular Hotel outside of Puerto Natales.   “The Singular Hotel is a fantastic place- we have never stayed in a museum before and it is certainly a combination of a historic building with wonderfully preserved machinery and a very nice modern contemporary hotel. Our stay at Patagonia Camp was wonderful- although one night the winds were so strong we thought we might awake in Kansas. People at Patagonia Camp for the 5 days before our arrival never saw the mountains and we were afraid of the same fate since the forecast was very bad. The first day (Tuesday) was 100 kph...
