Unlocking the Mediterranean 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...

A Mother & Daughter Wine Tasting in Spain This October I went on a mother/daughter wine and culinary trip to the Basque Country of Spain. My mom and I had never been to Spain together and thought this trip would be perfect for us because it contained two very important things... wine and food. First off, flying is not on my list of favorite things to do. However, I do love spending time with my Mom and drinking wine. So, I jumped on an airplane for what I knew would be a trip filled with new and wonderful experiences.  Since this was a wine and culinary tour there wasn’t the rush of adventure as in zip lining or wildlife safari’s - the adventure for me was seeing a new place with my mom, trying new foods and seeing the wine making process. My favorite thing that we did was in San Sebastián; a really fun cooking class where...

Let's Go to Greece My son, Benjamin, and I are so excited to be landing in Greece this summer and we are inviting you to join us on our Escorted Family Adventure in the Peloponnese & Cyclades this August 17-30th! We are gathering a small group of like-minded, adventurous families to climb to hill-top temples with us, hike through river canyons, and explore the white-washed island streets. After Benjamin completed a Greek Mythology unit in his 5th grade class, we decided now is the perfect time to visit the mythical birthplace of our favorite gods: Athena, Apollo and Artemis. We can’t wait to walk in the actual places where many of these tales were said to take place. It certainly helps that the ancient sites are adjacent to the lovely Aegean Sea where we can swim in the crystal water and relax on the warm sands. Plus the Greek food is legendary! We will...

If Switzerland is the original adventure travel destination as Swiss Tourism rightfully declares, then Interlaken-Jungfrau is where adventure was born. Today, it is the hub of adventure activities where you can find just about every activity on land, water and in the air from paragliding (tandem with a pilot), hiking and climbing, mountain biking or easy electric powered "e-bikes" on bike paths, rafting and boat trips, and Segway tours, and of course there's skiing and winter sports of every sort in the snow. Here is also one of the world's classic mountain adventure excursions: the Jungfraujoch train to the top of Europe. It may be a popular tourist attraction, but this part of the Berner Oberland has some of the most impressive mountain scenery, centered around the triple peaks of the Eiger (3,970m/13,025ft), the Monch (4,099m/13,448ft) and the Jungfrau (4,158m/13,642ft). A network of rail and cable-car routes from the town...
We started our journey of Switzerland walking and "wining" our way through the more urbane French-speaking region of Lake Geneva.  In a well planned and orchestrated itinerary, we moved easily through the countryside from Geneva, to Lausanne and Montreux  by train, boat, walking and bicycle. Sharing 95% of its borders with France, the seat of many international organizations, and a favorite respite and creative hangout for Freddy Mecury, Phil Collins, David Bowie, Audrey Hepburn, and many other celebrities and lesser known sophisticates, the Geneva region has it all. We walked the cobblestone streets of the old towns and hit several farmer's markets where we stocked up on cheese, olives, wine and fresh baked goods for our afternoon appetizers or lunches on the train. Historically, Geneva was a strategic transport and trade route used by the Romans, and later controled by the Savoys who built a series of baronies and castellanies throughout this...
