Mountains, Roses and Champagne: 30th Anniversary in Chile
Alumni travelers, Jim and Laurie celebrated their 30th anniversary by doing a custom 8-day trip to Chile. Beginning in Santiago, they then flew down to Torres del Paine and stayed at the romatnic  Patagonia Camp while hiking amongst the iconic peaks of this national park and ended at the luxurious Singular Hotel outside of Puerto Natales.   “ The Singular Hotel is a fantastic place- we have never stayed in a museum before and it is certainly a combination of a historic building with wonderfully preserved machinery and a very nice modern contemporary hotel. Our stay at Patagonia Camp was wonderful- although one night the winds were so strong we thought we might awake in Kansas. People at Patagonia Camp for the 5 days before our arrival never saw the mountains and we were afraid of the same fate since the forecast was very bad. The first day (Tuesday) was 100...

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...

A Once In Life Time Adventure to Patagonia

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...

Guest review from Anne, part of a group of six friends who did a custom trip through Patagonia , ending with a heartwarming story about watching the super bowl in Torres del Paine! “Wildland Adventures' planning was excellent. We gave you the dates and what we wanted to do in Patagonia and you more than met our expectations. The trip was fabulous. We had great guides throughout the trip. Ana in BA was quite knowledgeable and we were there at a difficult time when the prosecutor died under mysterious circumstances. Gabrielle who met us in Bariloche and then was our hiking guide, brew pub guide and then our lake crossing guide was extremely knowledgeable and more than that fun to be with. Finally our two guides at AWASI, Maca and Claudio, were top notch. Airline and ground transportation arrangements were excellent. All of our transfers and land drivers were on time...
