The Good Life: Galapagos in Fall

The Good Life: Galapagos in Fall
Are you not quite ready to give up Summer? Are you craving one last adventure before heading into the Winter months and holiday craziness? Think about the Galapagos Islands!! The Fall months are a terrific time to travel to Darwin’s Enchanted Islands. The wildlife – while always stellar – is especially endearing from September through November. Penguin couples are courting on Bartolome Island, baby sea lions ( NOTHING in the world is more adorable ) are widely distributed and inviting you to play snorkel-tag. Fuzzy-headed blue-footed booby chicks are easily seen on Espanola and Isabela Islands, and fur sea lions are in mating season, with the roaring tussels between huge males reminiscent of gladiators in their arena. November also brings a chance to watch the Giant Waved albatross chicks perfect their soaring flights before the entire population sets off to sea from Espanola. They then remain floating on the thermals from...

Back from our adventures in the Galapagos and Ecuador

Back from our adventures in the Galapagos and Ecuador
Dear Sherry and Kurt, We are back from our adventures in the Galapagos and Ecuador , and want to THANK YOU both for once again doing everything to make sure we had a fantastic experience!! Sherry, we can't thank you enough for steering us toward the Athala catamaran , and managing to get us on at the last minute. The boat was fantastic, as you know - and the crew really wonderful. We were completely spoiled, and had a blast with the other passengers - such a fun group. Again, all our thanks - Kim (Jeff, Sam, and James) Seely

Remarkably Knowledgeable Naturalists and Guides

Remarkably Knowledgeable Naturalists and Guides
Hello, and thank you, muchas gracias , to everyone at Wildland Adventures for your expertise, calm guidance, and good sense in arranging our wonderful Galapagos trip in the latter half of August. It still feels as if the ink is not dry from it yet, but we wanted to let you know (before it does) that this was a fantastic adventure, on many levels, and we greatly appreciate all that you did to make it so. We realize that it is really a privilege to visit there, and to be able to do so in the company of interesting people, remarkably knowledgeable naturalists and guides, and the gracious and capable captain and crew on the Eric was quite special. All the best. John Blanchard and Kathleen LoGiudice  Galapagos Adventure Cruise - Eric/Flamingo/Letty

Why You Should Explore Guayaquil on Your Next Trip to the Galapagos

Why You Should Explore Guayaquil on Your Next Trip to the Galapagos
Since the day I took the desk of the Ecuador & Galapagos Program Director at Wildland Adventures, we have focused our land arrangements in the capitol city of Quito. There’s a lot to be said for this arrangement: Quito is a UNESCO World Heritage site for very good reason, and it is the obvious gateway to the world famous market town of Otavalo as well as other charming Andean villages. The only flights to Ecuador’s incredible Amazon basin depart from Quito, and the birding heaven of Mindo-Tandayapa is a convenient 2 hour drive from Quito. But Quito isn’t the only star in the Ecuadorian firmament. On my recent trip to Ecuador this spring, I spent more time in Guayaquil on the Pacific delta of the Rio Guayas, and came away very impressed with that city’s attractions and advantages: Transfer times between the cities’ airports and main tourist centers are hugely different!...
