In the Wake of Magellan: Patagonia by Land & Sea

Following the footsteps of early explorers, immerse yourselves in the wilds of Patagonia by land and sea without sacrificing comfort. This journey combines a five-day cruise around the Cape Horn with overland, naturalist-led explorations of Torres del Paine, Tierra del Fuego and Los Glaciares National Park. On this Patagonia adventure tour, spot wildlife on a hike and zodiac ride in Tierra del Fuego; trek across the massive ice field of Perito Moreno Glacier; and explore a site that was once the largest Yamana native settlement and the spot where Charles Darwin landed in 1833 and your voyage through the Beagle Channel.  In addition to awe-inspiring scenery, you also encounter a variety of wildlife in their native habitats: walk through the protected nesting grounds of the Magellanic penguins; watch for rhea, Black-necked swan and flamingo in Torres del Paine National Park; and hike among massive glaciers to an elephant seal colony.  This trip has been carefully designed to cater to travelers who want to sample and soak in Patagonia's majestic nature at their own pace but prefer shorter day hikes to long treks and appreciate a high level of service.

Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek
Wildland Adventures

Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek

Our Mountain Lodges Trek to Machu Picchu is a physical, cultural and spiritual journey, taking you along ancient footpaths through the high Andes en route to the legendary ruins of Machu Picchu. Accompanied by expert Peruvian mountain guides and horse packing crew, you trek in style from lodge to lodge along a spectacular route in the Cordillera Vilcabamba under towering snow-capped peaks dominated by Mt. Salkantay (20,574), the sacred Apu of local Quechua communities we encounter along the way. Like Inca royalty, you overnight in the comfort of well-appointed trekker's lodges with private rooms, enjoy Peruvian cuisine, soak in Jacuzzis and relax by a cozy fire. This route is a more spectacular high Andean trek than the popular Inca Trail Trek, and the last day passes over a protected remnant of another Inca Trail and ancient Inca city hidden in the cloud forest near Machu Picchu. Small groups of no more than twelve trekkers ensure an intimate experience amidst stunning mountain scenery.
