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 vistas in Patagonia and...

Foodie Paradise and Trekking in Patagonia

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 is open, intelligent...

I Loved It All

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 who were our...

A Once In Life Time Adventure to Patagonia
Guest review from Charlie, part of a group of six friends who did a Custom Patagonia Trip.“The trip was fantastic…a once in a lifetime adventure. You folks did a great job of: 1) anticipating the types of accommodations we would prefer (basically 5 star hotels and resorts) and also the type of experiences we would enjoy. In particular, we appreciated your blending the different elements of the trip together is such a seamless fashion. As Gretchen knows, we covered a lot of territory in a relatively brief period of time. Thanks to your excellent assistance we did so in an extraordinarily efficient, comfortable and seamless fashion. Thank you.You could not have done a better job. Pre-departure advice and information was especially helpful.Top three experiences: Walking on the Glacier in El Calafate; Landing on Cape Horn Island; The hike we took on our second day in Torres Del Paine. The Llao Llao,...
