About the Knowmad Family Travel Style

Does your family seek out innovative but safe travel focused on bringing a place and its people alive with authentic, unique experiences? Knowmad specializes in just this type of family-oriented South American travel, and we’re happy to build a custom private trip that is as unique as your family.

Family travel in South America alongside Knowmad is all about bringing a country and its people alive in a way that is enjoyable and resonates with a range of ages. Itineraries suggested specifically for families typically are active but accessible, feature charismatic and professional local guides, emphasize cleanliness, value and safety in accommodations, and tie in authentic, fun cultural experiences.

These trips can be done exactly as described, or they can be used as planning tools and building blocks while you work with a Knowmad South American Trip Specialist to build your ideal custom trip. Learn more about the custom travel planning process here.

Upon confirming South America family travels with Knowmad, you will be sent a detailed Trip Information Packet particular to your trip that answers most frequently asked questions and includes a pack list, pre-departure checklist, and more. Prior to departure, along with your reconfirmed itinerary you receive a Buen Viaje, or Safe Travels document that includes maps with hotels indicated, 24-hour in-country emergency phone numbers, and other valuable assistance tools.
