Custom Patagonia: Way beyond expectations! 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 knew 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...
Traversing Mountains and Cultures with Paula and Frank 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. HIGHLIGHTS: "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...
This was an amazing 22-day adventure in Chile and Argentina! 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. PERSONAL HIGHLIGHTS: Charlie: Absolutely overwhelmed by the expansive...

Foodie Paradise and Trekking in Patagonia Barbara and Dennis just returned from our Hiker's Patagonia trip and, as they are foodies, we set up a special culinary tour in Buenos Aires at the end for them. Touring Buenos Aires from a gastronomic standpoint is such great a way to connect with the city from a different, more local view and an awesome way to immerse yourself in Argentina's culture and rich history. Ultiamtely, who doesn’t want to meet locals and visit their favorite hot spots for delicious food and wine while in Argentina?!   "Every single guide was great. Truly, we had fun with all and felt all were professional and enthusiastic. We really enjoyed time with the guides as we could really pick their brains about the areas, culture, society, etc. None disappointed and it really helps to get the feel of an area when you can spend a lot of time with someone who...

I Loved It All Suzy and her husband participated in part of a custom trip to Patagonia with four of their friends, cruising from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia, ice trekking on Perito Moreno Glacier and hiking in Torres del Paine. “The cruise and landing at Cape Horn was really fantastic! We had a beautiful (for Cape Horn) sunny day and even got to observe sea lions sunning on the rocks prior to landing at Cape Horn. The climb on the Perito Moreno glacier outside of El Calafante was very special and one of the other highlights for Bob and me. Finally, the hikes in Torres del Paine were extraordinary with fabulous scenery and great exercise. Although some of the hikes were more challenging for me than I expected, I loved it all. Our guides throughout were very well informed and enthusiastic.Magdaly in El Calafante was very well informed, as were both Maca and Claudio...
