LATAM Now Flying Direct to Puerto Natales

LATAM Now Flying Direct to Puerto Natales
With a new flight route direct from Santiago to Puerto Natales, the wonders of Chilean Patagonia and Torres del Paine are more accessible than ever.  CN Traveler says: It's never really been easy to visit the 935-square-mile Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia, but that's part of what makes tens of thousands of travelers every year endure over 20 hours of travel (each way!) just to see it. This park, all pristine mountains and lakes carved by glaciers, is one of world's great natural wonders and, from this December, it'll be easier to reach than ever before. The South American airline LATAM is set to revive a rare route from Santiago, Chile to Teniente Julio Gallardo Airport in Puerto Natales, the airport nearest Torres del Paine. The airport has spent the last few years catering to private aviation, making it a destination out of reach for the majority of travelers....

Sue and Carmi Explore China

Sue and Carmi Explore China
Three-time Wildland alums Sue and Carmi came to us last year asking, "what about China?" What about China indeed! Even though China isn't listed on our website, Asia PD Kelsey had spent time traveling in China and was excited to design an itinerary in the land of dragons and emperors.  Sue and Carmi explored an impressive variety of what China has to offer from the Great Wall to Tiger Leaping Gorge to the Terracotta Warriors to riding the rails through the Chinese countryside. Their 3 week trip took them from the capitol city iof Beijing all the way to the Southern metropolis of Shanghai in an adventurous loop. Enough from me, I'll let Sue and Carmi do the talking. Here's a little more from their trip report: What were the main reasons you chose this itinerary?We have never traveled in Asia, and thought that it would be amazing to actually walk...

Your Serengeti Safari and The Great Migration: A month-by-month guide

Your Serengeti Safari and The Great Migration: A month-by-month guide
The Serengeti: no other place on Earth is more synonymous with an African safari. The name alone conjures up images of vast plains teeming with exotic wildlife. The Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania is home to one of the most spectacular mammal migrations on Earth. This park is over 5,700 square miles (about the size of Connecticut) with the great Serengeti Ecosystem about twice that size. Each year, an astounding 1.5 million blue wildebeests and more than 200,000 zebra trace a clockwise migration loop through the greater Serengeti ecosystem in search of better grazing and water sources. If all of these wildebeest and zebra were to each run in front of your Land Rover at 1 per second, it would take almost 3 weeks for all of them to cross the road! Over the course of the full migratory loop, the animals can cover up to 1,800 miles – that’s...
