Since our creation, we’ve been committed to crafting custom, authentic, and sustainable travel experiences. This year we feel a sense of urgency in the need to do more for our environment – to tread lighter on all the paths we take. Connect with us on Facebook or through our monthly newsletter to learn more about the conservation initiatives we’re planning for 2019 and beyond.
Here are a few of the things that set Knowmad apart:
TRAVELERS, NOT TOURISTS Born of the idea that travel is a unique expression of independence, liberation, and curiosity, Knowmad works with independent-minded travelers looking for unique and authentic journeys that are exceptionally well planned. We take out the stress, not the adventure.
PASSION FOR PERSONALIZED TRAVEL Your travels should be as unique as you are. Using your tastes and interests as a compass, our experienced team will create a unique, custom itinerary for you. We will continue refining this no-obligations proposal until arriving to your perfect trip.
EXCEPTIONAL EXCURSIONS Get off the beaten path and go deeper. We know how to get where others don’t, with excursions that get you closer to the people and landscapes so special to each place.
LOCALS TOUCH Discover a country through a local’s eyes. Travelers consistently tell us having a local private guide made a great trip into an unbelievable one. Most trips blend guided excursions and self-discovery. Knowmad Adventures prides itself on having the absolute best local bilingual guides. Who better to tell you about Patagonia than someone from the area? This local expertise enhances cultural interaction and makes for a richer experience.
AMAZING ACCOMMODATIONSKnowmad works with exceptional properties that complement their surroundings, whether a remote lodge, boutique hotel, traditional estancia, aboard a yacht, or in a luxury base camp. Our team personally inspects hundreds of properties every year and objectively helps you choose those perfect for you. We seek out intimate places with lots of character but never sacrifice cleanliness, atmosphere, and security.
Getting There We believe the destination is in the journey. You may find yourself kayaking to the riverside cottage, riding horseback to the estancia, or rafting to base camp. When longer overland traverses and transfers are necessary, we travel in comfortable private vehicles.
Unsurpassed Value You simply will not find a trip with the same services for a better price than the custom trip Knowmad will create for you. If you do, let us know and we will refund the difference. The quality and value of your trip with Knowmad will be unsurpassed.
Sustainability Knowmad Adventures partners with local hotels, outfitters and transportation companies, so your trip costs are widely distributed in the places we visit. Many of our partners are small, family-owned businesses. We work with organizations that strive for minimal environmental impact and do the little things, be it reusable lunch containers for picnicking on the trail, biodegradable soap in the back-country, or hotels with green lighting.
PROFESSIONAL From your first interaction with a highly knowledgeable Trip Specialist to your final farewell with your guide your experience with us will be professional, personal and above your expectations. Knowmad Adventures is the leading provider of specialized, authentic, private travel in Chile, Peru, Argentina and Ecuador.
PERSPECTIVE Knowmad Adventures is an operator based in the U.S. with local in-country coordinators and operations offices throughout South America. This means you get the best of both worlds working with easily-accessible North American Trip Specialists who can understand your needs, while also having the advantage of the up-to-date knowledge, personal contacts, insider tips, superior values, and the on-the-ground support a local operator provides.
