    WCI folks !

    Looking for recommendations for 1 week solo adventure trip anywhere (esp. South America). Any prior experiences/recommendations? Companies that you’ve worked with before?

    1 week isn’t enough for a trip somewhere that far away IMO.  It will take at least a full day of air travel to even get there on both ends of the trip, plus the next day after you arrive you’ll be completely worn out.  You’d have at most 4 days to actually enjoy the trip IMO.  You’d have a better time doing something closer.  Are you interested in backpacking?  Nothing better than spending 3-4 days in the wilderness of one of our amazing National Parks.  Yosemite is an all time favorite, but difficult to plan because of the popularity of their accommodations.  Glacier NP is another favorite of mine. What time of year are you going?  Plan ahead and you can have a very affordable and memorable trip.

    Any recommendations on lodging at Glacier? I’ve looked and it seems lots is booked up for this summer and fall. Looking for something with running water, electricity, and interior toilets but not obsessed with anything fancy (and expensive).

    Camping? All of their campgrounds are nice.  Only the Many Glacier campground has showers.

    If you’re looking for lodging, the historic Many Glacier lodge is amazing.  Location of that place is unbelievable.  Like many of the park lodges, especially those inside the park, they usually book up for the summer 6+ months in advance.  You have to plan these trips the year before you want to go.  There are several lodges outside the park.  We stayed in the one right outside of St. Mary’s once.  It was nice and it’s located right at the entrance of Going to the Sun Road.  Plus it’s not far from Many Glacier area too.

     

    This is the website for their lodges: https://www.glaciernationalparklodges.com/

    Any time you’re looking for lodgings in the National Parks and can’t find any via the website, CALL the concessionaire daily.  There are so many cancellations and rebookings during the high season, the website is never accurate.  A cancelled room will be rebooked before it can even be entered as a vacancy on the website.  So don’t just assume you won’t be able to get any lodging in the park; call daily, and there’s a good chance you’ll eventually snag something.
