A Fun Family Adventure in Patagonia
The Eden family came to us with a request - they wanted to visit their son Dan in South America. Dan had spent the last few months traveling around Chile and the rest of the family decided there was no time like the present! With just a month of time to plan we discussed a few options and a custom trip to Patagonia won out (as it often does). The E...

Piranha Fishing & Machu Picchu

Piranha Fishing & Machu Picchu
This Wild family of three just returned from a custom adventure to Machu Picchu and the Amazon .  After hiking a segment of the Inca Trail, getting a taste of Peru’s cutting edge culinary delights, mountain biking through the highlands and ending piranha fishing in the Amazon, they had quite a few stories to share! “Gretchen, thanks to you and the entire Wildland Adventures team, we enjoyed a fantastic vacation!  Started off very well with your recommendation and subsequent reservation at Casa Moreyra, Astird & Gaston in Lima for our first amazing dinner (Astird introduced herself and we had a very nice chat J).   Accommodations, activities and most importantly, the Wildland Adventures representatives, drivers and naturalists/guides throughout our Peruvian adventure were top-notch!   Today alone, I’ve mentioned/recommended Wildland Adventures multiple times to friends at work. Top on my list; Piranha fishing, mountain biking, Inca Trail to Sun Gate & Huayna Picchu/Wayna...

Father-Son Team Tackle Inca Trail

Father-Son Team Tackle Inca Trail
Re-trace the steps of 10 time alumni traveler, John, and his son Robby, who recently returned from a stellar father-son journey into the high Andes and along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu .   “We are loyal to Wildland, having taken ~11 trips with you over the past 10 years. You always do a great job for us!   Gretchen did an outstanding job of putting together an itinerary that met our needs and ensured our satisfaction.  As usual, you handled all the details perfectly. We enjoyed virtually everything - Cusco has the history, the excitement, the food and the cultural attractions; the Sacred Valley helped immerse us in the Inca culture and exposed us to fabulous ruins, the Inca Trail was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was both challenging and supremely rewarding.  I would not have changed a thing. Our guide, Fisher did a great job throughout. He was...

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...

Happy Holidays to each and all

Happy Holidays to each and all
We received this delightful holiday letter from a family of alumni travelers and felt it was too good not to share: "This year a 17 day Tanzanian Safari with Wildland Adventures exceeded our greatest expectations. We spent long, full days in Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Parks where the extraordinary teeming abundance of wildlife led to up close and personal encounters with lions (100+), elephants, leopards, cheetah and way too many wildebeest , hippos, giraffes, impala, ect , to count.  And we had a private tour!  Our driver-guide spotted game at every turn while driving in our open top Toyota Land Cruiser on Tanzania's infamous roads. In addition to wildlife sightings, we had fascinating encounters with a few of the 120 tribal groups, including a walkabout with the primitive Hadzabe hunter/gatherers as they sought game with bow and arrows. Seeing a snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro as we left...
