I think I hear whales!

Guest evaluation from our Alaska Inside Passage Adventure Voyage: Eastern Coves Please recount any personal highlights, inspirations or insights you experienced on your Wildland Adventure: 1. Crawling into bed, pulling the covers up and Wally saying, "I think I hear whales!" We grabbed our jackets and headed out to the bow where about 20 other passengers stood in silence! Capt Danny (We loved Capt Danny!!!) had turned lights on shining down into the water turning it jade green. Off the the boat but out of range of any light, we could see, hear and smell the whales as they blew and breached. The splash of the breach and shadow of the breaching whale visible. At that moment I looked up to see the Milky Way so close it looked like you could touch it and witnessed several shooting stars ... night of the Perseides meteor shower!! Honestly, I get goose bumps every time I...

The Inca Trail to the Gate of the Sun

Day-10---Machu-P-Aerial
Guest Review There is no better way to live and breathe the Inca culture than by trekking the Inca Trail. This unevenly paved trail can be challenging at times (with the highest path reaching 13,770 feet!). However, vistas of snow peaked mountains and plummeting valleys make each breathless step well worth the challenge. A first-rate guide and cheerful porters make all the difference. In order to preserve the trail, Peru has limited the number of hikers allowed on the trail and requires all to go with accredited guides. A cup of hot coca tea was brought to my tent at 5:45 each morning, just in time for viewing a hazy orange sunrise. A tub of steaming water to wash my face, followed by a hearty breakfast, and I was ready to begin another day of walking and exploring. Four exhilarating days later we reach Intipunku (aka: The Gate of the Sun). From this...

A mother and son's graduation adventure in Peru

Lares-MP1
"Oh, the zipline WAS intense.  I probably would have bailed had my son not been there.  We are a fiercely competitive family and I NEVER would have heard the end of it! We were thrilled by the hikes and zip line but my husband would have passed out (which is why we left him at home)!" concluded Jennifer Hines upon their return from a mother-son Wildland Adventure to Peru. Joe gets unclipped from the zip line on this mother-son Peru Family Adventure.  Their July trip to Machu Picchu was a family adventure to mark their son's high school graduation and to spend some precious time together on our Peru Family Adventure before their next transitions in life; Joe is headed for college in September and mom and dad are going to be empty nesters. Joseph climbs up the via ferrata fixed climb up the side of the Urubamba Valley. It's wonderful to...

We are having a FABULOUS time in Turkey

We are having a FABULOUS time in Turkey
We love getting updates from our guests while they are traveling, recently we received this from a guest on one of our trips to Turkey."Just a quick note to let you know that we are having a FABULOUS time. Deniz is the best and shares our love of getting lost. We feel like we are traveling with a good friend and not a guide! This is truly turning into the adventure of a lifetime. We love, love, love the flexibility of the schedule. You did a fabulous job of planning this portion and Wildland knows the best in country operators. More when we get back!"Cheers!!!Susan LopinotGuest on Wildland Adventures Turquoise Coast Odyssey

The Best Birthday Lunch in My Life!

This is what a birthday suit looks like on a tour in Argentina. “In all my 61 years I can say unequivocally without any doubt that this is the best meal I've ever had on my birthday!”That’s how Duke described our lunch at Bodega Ruca Malen. And several of the rest of us might even rate this the best lunch in our lives all things considered: outdoor formal table setting with a sea of glasses and silver overlooking Cuyo de Lujan vineyards, beautiful sunny day with white billowy clouds over the Andes, exquisite 5 course tasting menu paired with the bodega’s wines, and exceptional table service including fun interactions with the young Chef Lucas at each course.Warning: The following tasting menu may be hazardous to read if you are hungry or thisty! Our Argentina gastronomy tour table setting at Ruca Malen bodega. Two appetizers:Small goat cheese truffle, dried chilli peppers and...
