If your New Year's resolution is not to just travel but to be immersed in a destination, have authentic cross-cultural interactions and experience nature on a grand scale then our 2020 staff picks should be your first step to crossing that goal off your list. Wildland Adventures has spent the last 30 years curating custom adventures that connect our travelers to the places and people they visit, support local communities and preserve the environment. Plus, the beauty is we don't just design incredible trips, we tailor them to your style, budget, and pace of travel.
2020 Staff Picks
Below each trip, we've introduced the program director who designed the adventure and we encourage you to get in touch with them and start planning own adventure.
Where are you off to in 2020? Jordan! Hike the ancient caravan routes, breathe in the spectacular glory of Wadi Rum, even explore the incredible ruins of Petra, in relative peace. But do it soon, Jordan's allure is no longer a secret, prime Spring/Fall months are filling faster each year. If you have questions about our trips to Jordan contact our Middle East Director Sherry Howland.
Explore a paradise of ancient rainforests, volcanoes, and tropical beaches on this favorite of family adventures. I invite you to come and experience all that is Costa Rica! For Costa Rica is not only a land of incredible natural beauty, peaceful living and welcoming people, but also one of democracy, freedom, and equality. Come visit! If you have questions about planning a family trip to Costa Rica contact our Central America Director Grettel Calderon.
Sri Lanka Grand Tour
Why Sri Lanka?.... How about white sand beaches that fringe warm surf, local culinary delights, a rich history, thick jungles, abundant wildlife, hiking, biking, and (of course) time to just relax. Lonely Planet named it the best country to visit in 2019 so put it on your list for 2020! No crowds just wonderful hospitality. If you have questions about planning a Sri Lanka tour contact our Asia Director Jeff Robers.
Prices have actually decreased from 2019 making this one of the best values in Southern Africa for the July – October high season. Combining the cosmopolitan charm of Cape Town, the incredible wildlife and easy access of the Kruger National Park area, as well as the wildlife bonanza around two remote camps in the Okavango Delta – this is the safari you have waited for! If you have questions about planning a safari in Africa contact our Africa Director Chris Moriarty.
Exploring the wilderness is all about getting away...far away. Escape the crowds and board a small private yacht to explore Alaska's marine habitat in Prince William Sound and then enjoy Alaska's interior with an excursion to Denali National Park. Calling all wildlife lovers! If you have questions about planning a trip to Alaska contact our North America Director Rachael Garrett.
