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 Paine....

More Than Met Our Expectations: Wine, Chocolate and Football in Patagonia
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 and...

THE WILD’S CALLING: PATAGONIA AND PERU

THE WILD’S CALLING: PATAGONIA AND PERU
Attention last minute travelers and methodical trip planners a like! Having just come back from a 5 week trip to South America, I wanted to take the time to say that I am happy to be back here at the Wildland office and I am equally excited to help spread the energy and enthusiasm I have rekindled for some of my favorite places in the world to our wild travelers. As the weather is beginning to change and winter is starting to peak its grey, cold and rainy head around the bend, I would like to take a moment to talk about travel to Peru and trips to Patagonia and planning a last minute trip before winter really kicks in (for those last minute planners) or a trip that you can look forward to through the most bitter months and reward yourself with on the other side (for those more methodical...
