We’ve seen a lot of change in our 20 years of adventure travel, and much of this change mirrors larger changes in our society. Compared to 1999, today there is an increased interest in exercise and healthy living and people staying healthier into older years. There is the ever-evolving push for women's equality, rapid technological innovation, and dramatically increased connectivity because of the internet. The world itself is changing, adventure travel is changing with it. Here are 20 things that have dramatically changed in the world of adventure travel over the last two decades.

I woke up this morning to the news that a bomb had gone off in Sultanahmet, the Old City of Istanbul. Along with sadness for the victims and wondering who they were and what they had been doing when the blast occurred, I wondered how it would affect the thinking of the women who are signed up for our trip to Turkey next fall.

Patagonia is a vast, sparsely populated region of South America. Encompassing parts of both Argentina and Chile, it stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean and is known for the towering peaks of the southern Andes, as well as steppes, grasslands, and even desert. Rugged and windswept, for years it was known as the province of cattle ranchers and outlaws. The inhabitants have changed over the years, particularly with the advent of airports and better roads, but its beauty is no less compelling than it ever has been. Fortunately for hikers and climbers (and wildlife!) both Argentina and Chile have preserved some of the most iconic areas in National Parks, and it is those we visit on our Adventures in Patagonia trip.
