I am super impressed with how Wildland Adventures handled my trip to Jordan & Egypt, the most amazing part might be that they were able to put everything together less than a month before I left. They organized a 6-day trekking trip from Dana to Petra along the Jordan Trail and finished with exploring Petra for two days. The guides, trail, and camps were all incredible! I also can't say enough good things about the Jordanians, they are so welcoming to travelers.

After Jordan, we flew to Cairo and spent 7 days exploring Egypt. I need to start with our guide in Egypt was out of this world, she's been guiding for 35 years and is one of the most knowledgeable guides I have ever met. On top of that, she has such a wonderful personality and is so excited about sharing Egypt with travelers. Our trip started with the Egyptian and then we flew south to Aswan to get on a luxury cruise boat to spend the next three days cruising up the Nile towards Luxor. Each day we did day tours through a new city, I loved traveling like this and we got to see so much. After the cruise, we flew back to Cairo from Luxor and spent the next three days exploring the Cairo area and the Great Pyramids. We saw probably double if not triple what I think most people saw because we had such an amazing guide and the planning of the trip was done so well.

Can't wait for my next adventure!

Cheers,

Jonathan

This is a holiday gave me a chance to slow down, and take the time to feel part of the natural world: the sun, to notice the hook-beaked oyster catchers and families of rare seals, to enjoy the wonderful food, the sunshine, scudding clouds, waves lapping and the feeling of being held safely by the St Hilda whilst being at the mercy of winds, tides and waves. It was fun to share tasks with fellow passengers and to laugh. I haven't laughed so much for years. And I loved seeing beautiful coastal parts of Scotland for the first time from the sea, gaining the chance to wonder at the histories and cultures that have flourished, been lost and yet live on in the remote, unusual places where we moored. I discovered my sea-legs, but I found much more - the pleasure of a little bit of distance from land, the new perspectives it gives and sheer joy of experiencing the sea, and its role in revealing new dreams and uncovering old ones. All this was in the company of knowledgeable crew - sea-farers who made the whole cruise delightful from start to finish and easy-peasy for a land-lubber like myself.

This was a fantastic holiday - there is something magical about being in a ship, relying on wind and waves, seeing beautiful scenery, eating lovely food, helping sail the ship and enjoying the experience with a group of witty, friendly, knowledgeable people.

This holiday was like no other: it was stepping into another world where the wind, sun and sea mattered because our lives were held by the ship and these big elemental forces. It was a realm of sea faring lore, laughter and fun, where the elements - water, wind and tides - mattered and shaped and influenced our journey. It's easy to laugh on a ship because you are sharing the camaraderie of crew and ocean and somehow the sea is lighter than the land. Instead you have the myths and stories of sea and mysteries of the deep - Moby Dick, Jonah, Noah's Ark and Ring of Bright Water! It's fascinating to be on a slow journey with time to reflect and to be looking at the strange, populated and then depopulated, fought over Scottish coastal landscape from a new perspectives. It's fun to work with the charming, witty, friendly skippers and fellow crew hauling anchors and sails. But, most of all, it's a joy to be on, and in, and feeling the elemental ocean. I felt safe and found my sea-legs, but I also stumbled into a new world, one that enriches and ignites dreams.

      About Wildland Adventures

      A pioneer in eco-tourism since 1986, Wildland Adventures specializes in putting together customized small-group tours around the world for travelers who are seeking authentic, eco-friendly experiences without sacrificing safety and comfort.  

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      They put an emphasis on fostering cross-cultural interaction and building bonds with local people as well as using in-country guides and outfitters. Accommodations and dining experiences are also selected to reflect local cultures and styles.

      Who Travels With Them?

      All ages, including Individuals, multi-generational families, honeymooners, and small private groups seeking customized, in-depth first-class tours of adventurous destinations.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Wildland tours range from East Asia to southern, eastern and North Africa; from New Zealand to South America; from Central America and the Caribbean to Alaska. Small-ship voyages include luxury yachts in the Galapagos Islands, Alaska's Inside Passage and Glacier Bay, the Egyptian Nile, and Turkey’s Turquoise Coast.

      How Does It Work?

      After you contact Wildland Adventures, they will work with you to choose a destination and put together an itinerary best suited to your needs and wants.

      Why Travel With Them?

      If you’re looking for challenges that include, as they put it, “intellectual and spiritual adventures” as well as physical, Wildland Adventures is an award-winning advocate of that type of travel.

      About St Hilda Sea Adventures

      St. Hilda provides the unique experience to see Scotland by sail. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travelers, and small multi-gen groups.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Taking only up to 6 guests, their tours are incredibly unique, as you sail aboard a classic ex-tall ship that looks straight out of the past. Activities include sailing, swimming, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or you can choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by. If you bring your equipment you can canoe, kitesurf, and windsurf as well.

      Who Travels With Them?

      All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailer.

      Where Do They Operate?

      The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides and Argyll specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

      Why Travel With Them?

      These cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife, sail aboard an ex-tall ship with skipper and chef, with a small group. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price, however you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
