Gary was a solo traveler, outdoor-enthusiast looking for a customized Patagonia Adventure. His wild style and enthusiasm is the epitome of what we love to see in our travelers!
“The basic idea of the trip was mine as I wanted to visit and experience Patagonia. I had read about Patagonia Camp but new little else about how to put this total "package" together. I love the outdoors and wanted to experience as much of Patagonia as I could within my time constraints. The end result of the trip clearly showed me that Gretchen listened to me in our initial discussions concerning what I was looking to do and experience. I very much appreciated her input and willingness to alter the details of the trip when necessary. Looking back I cannot honestly say what you could have done to have made things better or easier. Wildland Adventures’ pre-departure packet and itinerary...
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.
"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...
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.
Charlie: Absolutely overwhelmed by the...
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...
