Advice for Traveling to Morocco, from a Wild Alum
Three-time Wildland Adventures alumni Tom & Patti Saunders recently returned from a 13-day exploration of Morocco that roamed from the medinas of Fez and Marrakech to the serene oceanside town of Essouira to the oases and kasbahs of the Skoura Valley to the windswept dunes of Erg Chebbi They even emailed us in the midst of their journey to share their happiness: “For now, just a quick email to thank you. This trip has truly been amazing. We've just arrived in Marrakech and I have to let you know that the accommodations, choice of route, guides, our exceptional driver Kamal, our camel in the Sahara, the Atlas Mountains experience, and every day of this tour, could not have been better.

Signing Off the Season in Patagonia

Signing Off the Season in Patagonia
As Patagonia’s trekking season comes to a close this year, Wildland Adventurers alumni Lynn and Lawrence, report back in after spending the final days of their trip to Patagonia in the Fitz Roy area of Argentine Patagonia.   Lynn enthusiastically recounts, “We absolutely adored the trip and we LOVED the trekking! We know that many people are weary about traveling to Patagonia at the very end and beginning of the season, but it was perfect- there were hardly any tourists and mostly locals, who were eager to interact with us and make suggestions of local hot spots in El Chalten; the restaurants in this town are great!

Our drivers in and out of El Chalten were also great and made everything easy and we loved our hotel.” This ambitious couple also...

You always do a great job for us!   Gretchen did an outstanding job of putting together an itinerary that met our needs and ensured our satisfaction.  As usual, you handled all the details perfectly. We enjoyed virtually everything - Cusco has the history, the excitement, the food and the cultural attractions; the Sacred Valley helped immerse us in the Inca culture and exposed us to fabulous ruins, the Inca Trail was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was both challenging and supremely rewarding.  I would not have changed a thing. Our guide, Fisher did a great job throughout. He was knowledgeable about...
