Father-Son Team Tackle Inca Trail
Re-trace the steps of 10 time alumni traveler, John, and his son Robby, who recently returned from a stellar father-son journey into the high Andes and along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu .   “We are loyal to Wildland, having taken ~11 trips with you over the past 10 years. You always do a great job for us!   Gretchen did an outstanding job of putting together an itinerary that met our needs and ensured our satisfaction.  As usual, you handled all the details perfectly.

Balancing Rugged and Luxury in Chilean Patagonia

Balancing Rugged and Luxury in Chilean Patagonia
Traci and Denise returned recently from a custom trip to Chile . They wanted time to do more challenging trekking in Torres del Paine but also indulge in the luxury that Patagonia Camp has to offer.

Marilyn and Steve, along with their friends Tom and Betlyn, just returned from a customized adventure exploring the top sites of Patagonia . Beginning in Santiago, they continued on to a luxurious and active jaunt in Torres del Paine at Explora Lodge, glacier viewing in El Calafate, sunset sailing in Bariloche and finishing in Buenos Aires with time to catch a live jazz show and test out their tango skills! Marilyn recounts their experience below. “I am just now getting a moment to write about the trip…Bottom-line: it was fabulous! The concept of crafting an itinerary and identifying where and how much time you spend is really the way to go - I just cannot imagine being “captive” on a scheduled tour anymore! Meeting the local guides at each stop was a real treat - Jorge in Santiago, Fernanda in Buenos Aires, Marissa in Bariloche, Pilar in El Calafate, and of...
