I’ve had two great adventures with this company. Both journeys offered a combo of moderate off the beaten path and times for luxury. Guides are highly knowledgeable and they offered us opportunity to go deep into history. I really appreciated some rugged moments. The South Africa trip was life changing for many reasons. They are great communicators and want to make sure you get answers and interests met. Both trips had very good hotels and food. Please try them if you travel to learn and participate in new cultures.

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

Our vacation to Belize with Wildland Adventures was incredible! My boyfriend and I wanted a trip to the tropics and to explore Maya ruins and they really delivered on both. Our guides picked us up at the airport, and took us to San Ignacio. We stayed at Rumors, which was a nice, affordable resort. Our guides were all local and it felt like we were guests instead of tourist. They were amazing and got us to the ATM caves early so we didn't have to wait in line and were very knowledgeable and fun to be around. They dropped us off for our boat transfer to Pelican Beach Resort which was the perfect island paradise to relax for the rest of the trip. The islands cost a bit more than coastal resorts but it was totally worth it! Our cottage was close to the water (it's a small island so everything is close) and the food was great. The staff were really nice and we loved the laid back feel to everything. There was amazing snorkeling right off of the beach and they also took us to explore other parts of the reef. We saw tons of marine life! The resort arranged our flights back to the airport so all it all it was really a really stress free vacation.

I've traveled with Wildland Adventures to Morocco, Southeast Asia, Patagonia and Zimbabwe and all have been amazing and transformative adventures. My most recent trip to Zimbabwe was with my Dad and it was absolutely incredible! We saw so much wildlife, stayed in beautiful safari lodges and had the best guides. All trips that I will never forget!

Stride Review

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.

From Wildland Adventures

At Wildland Adventures, authenticity is our highest priority. Sincerity, good faith, genuineness - they're all part of the ethic we embrace in approaching our world and the people and cultures we share it with. We’re devoted to helping our travelers experience the world with the honesty and affirmation that your choice of Wildland Adventures implies — a real world without artifice, that craves our understanding and compassion rather than our judgment; a world that seeks to welcome us rather than entertain us.

Of course, it can be argued that authenticity is an unattainable goal in travel. Our presence will forever change the place and the people with whom we come in contact. But if authenticity is characterized, according to its definitions, by "freedom from hypocrisy and pretense," then Wildland Adventures can proceed with the confidence that our trips not only will strengthen our own humanity, but will help build the kind of inter-cultural, interpersonal and environmental bonds that enhance rather than exploit the people and places where we travel.

Why Travel With Us:

For over two decades, we have been leading the way in adventure travel and ecotourism, not just to new destinations, but pioneering new approaches to travel that guarantee your experience with Wildland Adventures will be qualitatively superior.

The Personal Difference

We are personally involved in the design of your trip in coordination with local field staff. When you call our USA staff you will be speaking with another traveler with first hand experience in your destination who will help you choose the right trip and craft an itinerary that meets your personal interests and style.

Friends In Faraway Places

Cross-cultural interaction is not only having respect for local customs, but is genuine, honest, personal interaction stimulated by sensitive introductions from respectful guides who introduce you to their home like a friend and treat you as a personal traveling companion.

Comfort and Safety

Prepare to immerse yourself, secure in your health and safety. Relax and enjoy the experiences of native culture and pristine wilderness environments confident of our exceptional accommodations, transportation, hygiene and security, and the support of our professional in-country outfitters.

Bask In Native Hospitality

We seek out small, boutique hotels and lodges and even home stays where native culture is strong and we can enjoy regional cuisine and experience traditional lifestyle. Designed in indigenous style that fit into their environs naturally, our accommodations deliver charm, amenities and native warmth.

 Local Escorts To Exploration

The direct involvement of professional indigenous guides in organizing and leading your Wildland Adventure assures you will have an exceptionally informative, well-executed, and authentic experience.

Like-minded Travelers

By creating more personal, in-depth and meaningful life enhancing travel experiences we consistently attract active and inquisitive travelers of all ages who discover that Wildland Adventures are not the stereotypical group experience. Participants on our very small group trips are frequently experienced world travelers who request our services for efficiency, economy, reliability, security and superior leadership.

Journeys of Discovery

Wildland Adventures are physical, intellectual and spiritual adventures--more a state of mind than a risky or arduous challenge. The real adventure is new insights, the awe found in nature, encounters with new cultures, and the excitement of personal discovery.

Dependability

You can depend on our record of professionalism and safety. Prestigous travel writers, guidebooks and travel industry media, recognize Wildland Adventures as a leading ecotourism company. The company was a founding member of The International Ecotourism Society, the Galapagos Tour Operators Association, and the Maasai Environmental Resource Coalition, and retains corporate membership in other professional tourism associations and the Better Business Bureau.

Travel Styles:

Since 1986, we've shared our intimate knowledge of the people and places we love. Introducing our travelers to a more personal and in-depth travel experience among our friends in far away places. Your adventure vacation with Wildland Adventures will be a world of difference because we design specialized itineraries that match you with your personal interests and style of travel. Our specialty travel programs include multi-generational Family Travel, Honeymoon or Romantic Adventures, first-time Exploratory Trips, as well as custom travel planning services for individuals, families and private groups.
