We have traveled with Wildland 3 times before and have loved the trips. We believe you all do South America better than anyone! We were incredibly grateful for all of Gretchen's help in planning this trip and her patience in helping with the changes and questions along the way. We were especially grateful and impressed with how Gretchen and others helped us when our daughter missed her connection. The Delta agents kept telling her not to go to Santiago because of the strike but she left anyway and we kept our fingers crossed that it would work. Thanks to all of you,...

The Hiking was Wonderful!!

The Hiking was Wonderful!!
This active family of four just returned from a custom Hikers Patagonia Adventure in Patagonia and share some of their incredible experiences: “First of all, we enjoyed all the hiking- it was wonderful!! Second, we loved all of our guides!  Lorena in Santiago took care of us well. Chris in Patagonia Camp was good and entertaining. Ismail, Frederico in Calafate were great. Andres in El Chalten was especially good. Had a nice pace for hiking and just an easy guy to be around for 9-10 hours. His knowledge of geology was great and interesting to us. Patagonia Camp yurts were fun, unique, warm, cozy, and loved that they were separated. El Puma , in El Chalten, was very comfortable and well situated.

The Best Trip We Ever Took!

The Best Trip We Ever Took!
After an exhilarating 17-day customized In The Wake of Magellan adventure , exploring Patagonia , Buenos Aires, and Iguazu Falls, these two travelers share their initial insights upon return home. “ We are returned from South America, and it was the trip of a lifetime! We both seriously thought it was probably the best trip we ever took! Very briefly, we were amazed at the amount of organization that so many transfers, flights, connections, and pre-paid fees were necessitated, and are truly amazed that you had it all organized and that it all went so smoothly. Guides would ask, "Did you pay for ?.....", and while we looked at each other with blank faces, the guide would look through our papers and then say, "Yeah, you're all set." We are very impressed. Also - the guides were consistently excellent, really excellent. And the food and wine at Singular, on the ship,...

The distance from the rest of the world was part of the appeal
Carol and Chas just returned from our newest Chile Adventure- Exploring Wild Chile: Off the Beaten Path in Patagonia with a customized cruise in the middle.  Beginning in “Chile’s Yellowstone”- Patagonia Conservation- in the Aysen Region, continuing on to explore the southern fjords on an intimate cruise and culminating amidst the stellar peaks of Torres del Paine National Park, in the south, Carol recounts her experience here: “Every part of our trip was wonderful.  We enjoyed all of the accommodations.  Hotel Castillo Rojo in Santiago was delightful, lovely staff, nice quiet neighborhood with lots to walk to (restaurants, hike up to the Santuario Imaculata Concepcion, Pablo Neruda house, etc.)  It was lovely being in the Parque Patagonia in Valle Chacabuco.  The distance from the rest of the world was part of the appeal.  It took 8 hours of driving on a dirt road to get there, rather than the 5 hour...
