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.

Galapagos Islands and Peru
Two of our most popular destinations in South America are the iconic Galapagos Islands and Peru, particularly legendary Machu Picchu. And the two are amazingly compatible and complementary…the archaeology, history and culture of Peru plays well with the wildlife and natural history experience of the Galapagos. And both offer daily opportunities for an active adventure - be it hiking the Inca Trail or through colorful indigenous villages, snorkeling with playful sea lions, or kayaking into sea caves that may have sheltered pirates long ago. The combinations are endless but Kelsey and Sherry are experts in finding the right fit for our travelers.
