I recently set out on a two week reconnaissance mission to Morocco with the objective of searching for new routes and making deeper connections with the locals. I accomplished my goal and we are excited to announce we have redesigned our trips to Morocco, including new expert local guides who are your personal connection to the people and places you visit. Also expect to see plenty more photos and incredible stories from my trip to Morocco.   This was my second trip to Morocco, but the difference this time was the accompaniment of a local guide. With his help I found some extraordinary places which gave deeper insight into the culture, traditions and history of this marvelous country. From incredible adventure activities like sandboarding in the Sahara to authentic cultural experiences such as dinner with local Berbers, it was truly a trip of a lifetime. I sincerely hope everyone gets the chance to...
  Dreaming of exploring Peru this summer but still haven’t made plans? You’re in luck, because for a limited time, we are offering an exclusive discount of $250 per person for the remaining spaces on our Escorted Trek to Machu Picchu + Virgen del Carmen Festival! It’s not too late to join our small group of trekkers July 5-18, 2013 as we hike around Mt. Salkantay along Incan foot trails to Machu Picchu. Mentioned in the May issue of Travel + Leisure magazine, this trip is the perfect, active introduction to the true essence of the Peruvian Andes – the soul of the country. While hiking between remote mountain lodges, you’ll connect with the deeper subtleties of Peru’s ancient landscape and the traditional Quechua culture which reveres the mountain peaks as Apus, or spirits of the Andes. Space on this exclusive journey is limited and the savings are only valid...

Once in awhile, something comes along that truly fires the imagination, capturing a long-buried fantasy. For me, that idea can be found alive & well in our Bedouin Trek to Petra, and I believe this is what the good folks at National Geographic Traveler also recognized when they selected the Trek for their 2013 “50 Tours of a Lifetime.” Petra itself is every American kid’s holy grail – a fabulous, larger-than-life “lost city” hidden away behind steep, impenetrable walls. Add to that the notion of reaching this object of desire by way of trekking across rocky mountain passes, through brilliant sandstone river valleys, and camping with Bedouins –Bedouins, for petes sake! - under starry desert skies, and you have the stuff of every adventurous day dreamer’s dearest fantasy. But of course a successful trip is not made of fantasy alone, and with the Bedouin Trek to Petra’s seamless support structure,...

  I love everything about traveling, including the journey to get to where I'm going. My trip to Morocco started with a flight from Seattle to Frankfurt and something I have always enjoyed about flying is looking out the window. For me it's better than tv, as I flew over the cascades and the Canadian Rockies I couldn't help but dream about climbing all the great peaks I saw. Then I was lucky enough to watch an electric sunrise over Iceland. Once I landed in Frankfurt I decided to make the most of my layover and take the train into the city to explore. But before I did anything I got myself a nice big pretzel and that hit the spot after my long flight. In Frankfurt I found some beautiful churches, nice parks and some pretty incredible architecture. Unfortunately I didn't have much time to explore more, but nonetheless...
Dancers parading through the town of Paurcartambo on our Virgen del Carmen festival tour of Peru. One of the most amazing cultural events I've experienced in all my travels is the Virgen del Carmin Festival held in the remote village of Paucartambo high in the Andes of Peru about four hours drive over a winding mountain road from Cusco. We organize an escorted Virgen del Carmen Festival trip to Peru every few years and this summer July 15 and 16, 2013 South America Program Director Kirsten Gardner will be leading a group of Wildland travelers to experience what one previous traveler likened to a Fellini movie! We will be joining hundreds of native Quechua and mestizo residents who walk and drive to Paurcartambo from villages afar to dance, play music, sing and drink in the 2-day celebration that honors its patron saint, La Virgen del Carmen, which the local townsfolk endearingly...
