What's my favorite Wildland Adventure?
I'm often asked what my favorite Wildland Adventure is...and I have to say, I love Turkey! And I'm not alone, our Turquoise Coast Odyssey consistently receives rave reviews as one of the most culturally rich trips of a lifetime.
I admit. I'm biased. I have traveled to Turkey all my life to visit my Turkish relatives. Travel with us to Turkey and you're greeted as family by our exceptionally knowledgeable and fun-loving guides. Meet Alper Ertubey! He has been leading Wildland Adventures for 29 years, and has introduced scores of our travelers to their favorite home away from home. He's also the one to talk to about food...passionate about the cuisine of his homeland, there is no one better to share a meal and a drink (or two) with, Şerefe!
The combination of experiences on our Turquoise Coast Odyssey is second to none; exploring the bazaars and backstreets of Istanbul, hiking surreal landscapes leading to subterranean churches in Cappadocia, and a relaxing voyage along...
John and Nicole just got back from celebrating their birthdays on an incredible 12-day, custom, multisport adventure in Chile. From trekking in Torres del Paine, to a three-day kayaking trip down the Serrano River, to drinking scotch with ice fresh from a glacier, to wine tasting and horseback riding at the elegantly rustic and luxurious Matetic Vineyards, they truly embodied our Wild Style and then some!
"This "trip of a lifetime" was all that, and more!
Pretty much enjoyed every bit of the trip: lodging meals, transfers and guide staff were all great. On day 2 of our kayak trip we were blown away by the grandeur and magnificent scale of the place...truly jaw-dropping. Will Copestake, our kayaking guide, was a joy to get to know and we became fast friends. Weʼve always found the people in Latin America to be very warm, welcoming and FUN. The Chileans were no...

In the Andean foothills, just above Quito, Hacienda Rumiloma is a calm oasis while still near the city, set amidst green hills, with tame llamas & horses roaming around. The huge cabins have fireplaces (or wood-burning stoves), great views of surrounding hills or the city down below, rough-hewn heavy...

This year I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala for a week and on a comprehensive 16 day trip to Belize, what a treat!
Every time I visit Guatemala I’m amazed by the richness of its culture. Just imagine over 21 different indigenous Mayan populations fused with Spanish and European populations. One of my favorite things is to stroll around all the different villages near the Atitlan Lake where ancient Mayan dialect is still the primary language, which is uncommon to see in larger cities throughout Central American these days. It's a chance to really learn about their way of life: weaving the most intricate huipiles, teaching their natural dyeing techniques, etc. The Mayan influence is very strong everywhere you look, I think no other country has more international identity than Guatemala. To top it all our guide was able to spot a jaguar in the jungles of Tikal,...
