Global Trip Reviews
Overall, the trip was first class. The food and accommodations both on and off the trail were outstanding.

Our guides, Stephen and Jose, were the best. We had a group of varying ages and abilities and they were responsive to all of our needs. They were very knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information about the country and culture.

Mike was really up against a tall order. We wanted to see a lot and we wanted to cover a lot of ground and we wanted to make a trip of a lifetime in Iceland – in literally two days. He also was challenged to be even more fantastic than our other two Wildland Trekking Guides who gave us a fantastic camping trip through the Grand Canyon. Mike nailed it!! He was well organized, had thought of every details and was professional and friendly and knowledgeable and really great with our kids!! He had our kids laughing and learning the entire time and he cooked wonderfully creative and tasty traditional Icelandic meals for us! Our kids said – Mike is so funny! And John was so interesting with stories! They thoroughly loved listening to John talk about the Icelandic Christmas tradition and stories. Mike and John were a perfect pair for our family and no detail was forgotten. It was by far the best trip our family has ever taken and we thoroughly appreciate all the time and effort they endured to make it happen for us!!

First rate service from start to finish. Hands down one of the best vacations of my life made possible by Wildland Trekking. I would not have been able to duplicate the trip on my own no matter how much time I spent. I will definitely be using Wildland again in the future.

Wow! What an incredible experience. This was much more than just a trip – the thrilling hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro mixed with a truly unique immersion into African culture topped of with a world class game drives all wrapped into one package. My husband and I had the time of our lives – so many goosebump-worthy moments that will live on in stories for the rest of our lives! Thank you Wildland Trekking!

The Patagonia Trekking Tour was an amazing trip for me. It was challenging physically and mentally but the rewards made it special and well worth the effort. To have experienced the backcountry of Patagonia is something I will not forget. Coming up and over Garner Pass and seeing Grey Glacier and lake was an amazing moment. To have hiked on that glacier added to the excitement. Given the difficultly in getting food and supplies to the refugios, they were more than adequate and it was especially nice to have hot showers. I was so pleased with Wildland Trekking in showing us the marvel that is Patagonia. Thanks.

My husband and I just returned from Wildland’s Annapurna Base Camp trip. What an adventure! It was the trip of a lifetime. We had gorgeous mountain views and loved the cultural experiences included in the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and experienced and our Nepali guide and porter were also wonderful. The entire trip was well organized and we really appreciated having the comfort and security of an American guide to help us navigate the customs of another country. This is a trip that anyone who is physically fit and has trained for can do. My husband and I are in our 60’s and we did it. So glad we did! I have also traveled with Wildland in the states and we definitely would recommend Wildland for anyone seeking a guided hiking adventure.

I’ve been on 3 Wildland trips in the last 18 months (Grand Canyon rim to rim, Yellowstone inn-based 3-day, and Iceland Laugavegur hut to hut trek) and all of them have been amazing, fantastic, wonderful. I’m excited for my next Wildland trip to Utah next month!
I certainly never went hungry! They prepare large, filling, delicious meals (even with my gluten free diet!) and with desserts! They like to treat you with chocolate on the trail (and you also get snacks to put in your backpack).
The itineraries and hikes are well-planned, and very informative. I love learning new things on each of my hikes. From wildlife, to plant-life, to geology, etc., it seems like the guides have answers to everything! Truly a wealth of knowledge!
The trip packets provide you with a packing list, making your trip-planning super easy. And when I went to Iceland, the guides provided me with detailed instructions on how to get from the airport to our hotel. They really do take care of you!
Whether you’re going by yourself or someone else, you will have a great time. I’ve done both (with someone, and by myself) and the others in the group quickly become like family to you.
I’ve had different guides for each hike, and all my guides were absolutely fantastic! So knowledgeable, and accommodating. And definitely tell them if you feel like you’re getting a blister, they will nurse up your feet! The guides are super friendly. Shout out to my guides: Eddie Quinn, Montana Smith, Adrianne Bouchard, Myriam Bishop, and Michael Bishop!
I highly recommend Wildland Trekking!

Stephen was a fantastic guide. Cool, calm and collected at all times. Very knowledgeable about local culture and customs. Highly professional and also fun to be around.

Thank you Wildland Trekking! I can truly say that this is one of the best experiences of my life. I had a few mishaps before making it to Cusco, but once I met my guides all was well. Stephen and Jose are friendly, knowledgeable and go above and beyond to make sure everyone had a great experience. This trip was well organized and it seemed as if the guides and porters truly love what they are doing and the company they work for. The food was tasty and abundant. The porters and chefs were wonderful. I feel truly lucky to have been apart of this experience and wil definitely recommend Wildland Trekking to everyone I know. Thank you again for taking great care of the people who work for you. It really shows in the way they take care of the trekkers.
— Nicole L. (Trekked with us in Peru)
Of course the key to the trip are the guides. Both Stephen and the local guide, Jose, were remarkable in every respect. Always upbeat and helpful.
— Steve S. (Trekked with us in Peru)
I didn’t know what to expect other then I was up for anything. Working and managing in the service industry, I know first impressions go a long way, and wildland hit it out of the park. From the minute Seth picked us up from the airport, he was on it. Seth and Jos went on showing the group and myself throughout the trip that they truely cared about our experience. It’s rare to find someone who truely loves what they do for a living, but when you do while taking a 4 day hike to Machu Picchu, you come away with memories that’ll last a lifetime. Thank you Seth, Jos, and Wildland. Can’t wait till the next adventure.
— Joshua M. (Trekked with us in Peru)
I had an amazing experience and would recommend Wildland Trekking to all. Seth and Jose both were fantastic and so helpful throughout the trek. Their positive attitude and encouragement helped get me through the tougher parts of the trail and with being sick on the last day of the hike. The food was even better than I could imagine, and the trip was well organized and thoughtfully planned. I really appreciate all who were involved in helping make such an incredible experience a reality.
— Ryan H. (Trekked with us in Peru)
We did the Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu and had an amazing time. Our guides Jose and Seth were the best! We would do another Wildland Trek just because of them; very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful.
— Troy H. (Trekked with us in Peru)
The Wildland Trekking international agent did a marvelous job of coordinating specific customer request with the Peruvian guide to pull together a individualized trip of a lifetime to Machu Picchu and its environs. The tripwas well planned and executed. The accommodations and fare were excellent. The American and Peruvian guides were knowledgeable and a fount of information and local history. They have my full recommendation.
— William B. (Trekked with us in Peru)
Myriam’s knowledge of the area geography, history and terrain was outstanding. Her cooking and backpacking skills were also top notch! She also enhanced our extended stay with excellent tips (Glymur Falls & Stor Hraun).Thank you for a wonderful experience abroad.

Trip of a lifetime! Iceland is beautiful!
— Bonnie L. (Trekked with us in Iceland)
The brother, sister team of the Bishop’s was truly heart warming, with their knowledge and expertise! I would have to rate the total experience as top notch!
— Frank H. (Trekked with us in Iceland)
This is an incredible trip. The hiking is challenging but the views are unbelievable. The terrain is very varied. It’s just an amazing way to see the unique landscape of Iceland. I am so glad that I brought some family with me to share in this adventure!
— Margaret C. (Trekked with us in Iceland)
This trip exceeded my expectations. I was especially impressed by the peruvian guide partner. The support and food we got in peru was beyond impressive. I was blown away! Stephen was great! I felt well cared for, safe and absolutely pampered!
— Shannon H. (Trekked with us in Peru)
If you want to take a trip of a life time, plan yours with Wildland Trekking. Everything is TOP notch. Trips include everything, there is nothing hidden or implied that you will incur any additional expenses. Other companies maybe cheaper, but remember “you get what you pay for”. You will not have to worry about anything. They have got you covered. It makes for such an enjoyable trip You can just take it all in and not have a care in the world.
— Camilia H. (Trekked with us in Peru)
The trip experience exceeded my expectations. Seth and everyone assisting with the trip were fantastic right from the pick up and welcoming at the airport through the time I was dropped off to go home. The knowledge, passion and dedication to the group was evident everyday. Loved the stories about the region and how supportive Seth and his team were with every group attendee. This is my 2nd trip with Wildland and it definitely won’t be the last.
