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...
Dear Kurt, Anne and Wildland Adventures Team – My daughter and I were sorting through photos today and were struck by how many great memories we have had with Wildland Adventures. While we have been blessed to experience so many countries and many cultures over the years, our experiences with Wildland have always been particularly special. From our first Wildland trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos (at age 8) to our most recent to Peru and the Amazon rainforest (at age 16), my daughter has literally “grown up” with Wildland. We look forward to future adventures, and thought you might like to see the photos that we certainly enjoyed as we took a quick trip down Memory Lane.
Happy Holidays with warm regards,
Debbie and Elizabeth...
Guest Review from our Wake of Wallace voyage through the Eastern Indonesian Islands of Raja Ampat with expert guide and Wallace expert Tony Whitten.
“I am a biologist by profession...how could I pass up a trip that followed a part of Wallace's collecting route? The chance to visit one of the few remaining spots on earth that has not been overly disturbed by man was the main attraction.
Super trip!! Tony Whitten was outstanding… enthusiastic, funny, full of wit and wisdom and tireless. He is the personification of what you wanted your freshman biology professor to be. Knowledgeable, approachable, but mostly just bubbling over with enthusiasm for all things scientific and biological. For someone like me who started out doing field work as an undergrad but then get waylaid by bench science, having Tony along brought all the excitement of being in college field classes. When I suggested it would...
Guest Review from our Nicaragua Family Vacation
"The trip was wonderful! Wildland Adventures helped me plan my trip and get prepared perfectly!!
The activity our family enjoyed the most was the pottery experience, the horse and cart ride, and the walk on Mombacho!! Our trip leader, Lou, was miles beyond our expectations. She must be aone-in-a-lifetime guide. She guided us through the chaos of Granada with exceptional organization, insight, timing, warmth, cheerful spirits and charm. Lou seemed to know everyone everywhere personally - clearly a true and cherished friend to many of the Nicaraguans we met. It was so reassuring to be with someone who knew so much about the people and the country. After we parted ways, the kids both mentioned missing her and wanting to write her. Your most discerning and hard- to-impress visitors would be delighted, I'm sure, to be guided by Lou. Our driver Fran was...
Guest review from Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure
"Thanks for a great trip. We received excellent prep information. Having done many trips without a tour group, much of the information was a gentle reminder. The checklists were time saving and thoughtful.
Both lodges offered different experiences and they were both wonderful. Selva Bananito was amazing and different. The Shawanda Lodge was lovely with lots of wildlife on the grounds. I loved the snorkeling and experience in Cahuita. The waterfall hike and rappel was awesome. Other highlights were the boat ride and day at the Bribri Indigenous community, the salsa lesson and cooking lessons and the Sloth Sanctuary.
Alex Arias was professional, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He watched out for our comfort and safety and made sure that we had the best experience possible. He was able to teach us about the history of the country and the places we...
