Piranha Fishing & Machu Picchu

Piranha Fishing & Machu Picchu
This Wild family of three just returned from a custom adventure to Machu Picchu and the Amazon.  After hiking a segment of the Inca Trail, getting a taste of Peru’s cutting edge culinary delights, mountain biking through the highlands and ending piranha fishing in the Amazon, they had quite a few stories to share! “Gretchen, thanks to you and the entire Wildland Adventures team, we enjoyed a fantastic vacation!  Started off very well with your recommendation and subsequent reservation at Casa Moreyra, Astird & Gaston in Lima for our first amazing dinner (Astird introduced herself and we had a very nice chat J).   Accommodations, activities and most importantly, the Wildland Adventures representatives, drivers and naturalists/guides throughout our Peruvian adventure were top-notch!   Today alone, I’ve mentioned/recommended Wildland Adventures multiple times to friends at work.

Empanadas Para Morirse! // Empanadas to Die For!

Empanadas Para Morirse! // Empanadas to Die For!
When I was 15 I moved to a small town in the Pampas of Argentina as an exchange student. Knowing absolutely no Spanish upon arrival (besides hola and la cucaracha- neither being the most helpful), I found numerous other ways to communicate with my local family and hosts- my favorite being through food! Learning a culture’s culinary traditions is by far and away one of the best ways to gain new perspectives on who people are and where they come from. My host mom and I immediately hit it off as I started learning to cook some of Argentina’s favorite dishes from her. One of my favorite dishes, that I still love to bake with friends and family, is Empanadas. Empanadas are the beloved comfort food of much of Latin America and come in numerous sizes, shapes and delicious flavor variations. The name Empanada comes from the Spanish word “empanar” or...

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...
