Colorful Cuba
For Americans, Cuba occupies a mysterious and complex place in the lexicon of our cultural and political history. Once beloved as a socialite playground, the Havana high life of the early 20th Century gave rise to the Communist revolution prompting an enduring embargo for generations. Wildland Adventures founders, Kurt and Anne Kutay, arrived in Cuba last November, the day Fidel died. What ensued was a stunning shift in their experience including walking into the heart of Revolutionary Square with 1 million Cubans and foreign dignitaries to witness the historical event of his national memorial service.
Americans still must travel to Cuba under a designated license. Presenting colorful images and lively videos, Kurt will share the people-to-people experiences organized by Wildland Adventures. People to People is not just “educational” and “structured”, but means exchanging with local Cubans in meaningful ways. That can mean a cooking class with abuelita in her home, a private choir or traditional son musical performance, a visit to a pottery workshop, interaction with local entrepreneurs or the head of a fishing coop, or a tour of socialized health clinic. Private lectures on the history of Cuban music or US-Cuban relations are also presented by local university professors. Cuba’s rural roads through tobacco fields and farms, its national parks, and pristine Caribbean coast and islands are ideal for active outdoor hiking, kayaking and biking adventures as well.
Cuba is at a moment in history when more of the countryside is opening to tourism, and expanding US relations have fostered opportunities for more open one-on-one encounters representing centuries of African, Caribbean, Spanish, and indigenous influences - all with a rich legacy of political and social movements to be explored at this seminar.

Namibia-Desert Adapted Life
Join us as we explore Namibia's great mountains of sand, windswept gravel plains, uninterrupted landscapes, and ephemeral water sources in search of arid-adapted wildlife and remote cultures.
We will visit the red dunes at Sossusvlei, stark white pan of Etosha National Park, the petroglyphs and rugged environment of Damaraland, and the distant Kunene River. Our program will also provide a close look at the fragile, pristine landscapes of the Skeleton Coast. To walk along its lonely beaches scattered with whalebones, shipwrecks, and enormous seal colonies is truly a humbling experience.
Self-driving options will be presented along with suggestions for overland trips. We will discuss the best ways to experience wild and desolate areas where guest numbers are restricted.

Discover Australia and New Zealand
Wild landscapes, exotic animals, friendly locals, stunning beaches, a rich indigenous culture, and a love of rugby - Australia and New Zealand are exciting countries to explore. Join Genevieve Hathaway, Director of ArchaeoAdventures Tours, on a journey through the highlights of Australia and New Zealand.
Considered the oldest continent, Australia is known as much for its modern cities (such as Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth) as it is for its natural wonders - the Great Barrier, the Kimberley, and the vast interior desert wilderness called the Outback. In addition, this country has unique animals (such as kangaroos, koalas, and duck-billed platypus), a fascinating aboriginal culture, an impressive wine region, and plenty of adventure sports.
Just across the Tasman Sea, is another ancient area of land - New Zealand. Shaped by volcanoes and glaciers, New Zealand's primary original inhabitants were only birds creating some of the most unique birdlife on the planet. The dramatic Fiordlands, tetonic North Island, spectacular mountains running the length of the South Island give New Zealand beautiful and diverse landscape. The Maori culture is strong with beautiful art and traditions. Rounding out a travele's experience of New Zealand are the thriving modern cities, famous wine regions, and the friendly locals.
In this presentation, learn about the highlights from these two regions and the best ways to combine them in a trip.

Southern Spain and Morocco
Discover two enchanting countries, geographically separated by the Gibraltar Strait; yet intimately connected through their shared Moorish history. Join Genevieve Hathaway, Director of ArchaeoAdventures Tours, on a photographically stunning journey through the highlights of southern Spain and the best of Morocco. Southern Spain, often referred to as the Andalucia region, is rich in history and culture.

And no trip to Spain is complete without exploring the impressive museums and modern history in Spain's capital city, Madrid. Then it's across the Gibraltar Strait to the port town of Tangier, the northern tip of Morocco. Ancient medinas and towering mosques dominate city skylines. The mighty Sahara desert, white-capped rugged peaks of the High Atlas Mountains and turquoise waters of the Mediterranean provide breathtaking views. Explore Morocco's color-coordinated Imperial cities (Fez, Marrakech, Casablanca and Chefchaouen), get off the beaten path in the massive sand sea of the Sahara, listen to the melodious call to prayer echoing through towns, and dine on some of the best cuisine in North Africa.

Norte Camino de Santiago Coastal Trek
Come discover the mystery of the Camino less traveled, the 500+ mile sojourn from Irun to Santiago along the picturesque northern coast of Spain that makes up the Camino Norte. Explore charming historical seaside towns, breathtaking coastal trails, white sandy beaches, and walks through fragrant Eucalyptus and Pine Tree forests as you experience this once in a lifetime trek.
The Camino de Santiago, or the Way of St. James, is one of the historical Christian Pilgrimage routes from the Middle Ages. The most popular trail of the Camino de Santiago is the Camino Frances from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago. This popular trail attracts thousands of people from around the globe with varying cultures, languages, and belief systems.
With the growing popularity of the Camino Frances, today's pilgrims are looking to branch out to less crowded trails that also lead to Santiago. This northernmost route was used throughout history when the Camino Frances was too dangerous to walk. Today it is one of many official routes to Santiago used by those who love the ocean and those who prefer a more intimate, less crowded journey. Come find out about the less traveled Camino Norte from Sheri Goodwin of Transformational Journeys and start planning your trip tonight. You will learn everything you need to know to be successful on this incredible adventure!
Sheri is an experienced solo trekker that has also explored the Camino Frances from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, the Le Puy Camino from Le Puy en Velay to St. Jean Pied de Port and an Italian Camino from Assisi to Rome, totaling over 1650 miles of Camino trails experience.

This route is becoming a popular trail with the local French people and veteran pilgrims who have already accomplished the Camino Frances.

Trekkers traverse farmlands with deep valleys and rolling hills, cross high plateaus and finally arrive at the foothills of the Pyrenees in the remarkable town of St. Jean Pied de Port. This adventure will take you through many of the most beautiful historic villages in France.

Preview this lovely hike and learn the "How To's" with Marcia Shaver and Sheri Goodwin, who both walked this way in the spring and summer of 2016.

Walking Hadrian's Wall & The Antonine Wall
Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall were built over 1,800 years ago as defensive fortifications by the Romans stationed on the frontier of the empire. The more popular of the two, Hadrian's Wall, located in Northern England is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. It was built in AD 122, spans 117 kilometers (83miles) and can be followed on foot along the Hadrian's Wall Path. The trek along the old wall with its active archeological sites, museums, lively pubs, B&B's, and beautiful countryside has become popular as an adventure walker's destination. The Antonine wall, located in Scotland between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Clyde represented the northernmost frontier fortification of the Roman Empire for only 20 years. It was built 20 years after Hadrian's Wall in AD 142 and spans 63 kilometers (39 miles). Unlike Hadrian's Wall, the ruins of the Antonine wall are much less evident.
Learn the history of these walls, walking routes, places to stay along the way, what to pack, when to go and more! Training insights will be provided for this physical adventure, so that you don't just survive your journey, you THRIVE!
