About.com Features Knowmad Adventures

Knowmad is thrilled to be spotlighted in the article Custom Adventure Travel in South America with Knowmad Adventures on About.com.

The author Louis Friedland, a big adventurer herself, outlines that Knowmad is a “U.S. based (company) and owned by an American husband and wife team who believe ‘Travel brings us closer to Earth’s natural wonders and diverse cultures, as well as to ourselves.'” She says that their “approach to creating trips reflects that philosophy.”

The article also highlights some of our sought-after adventure itineraries:

Discover the magic and traditional cultures of Chiloe, visit the lakeside town of Puerto Varas, and explore temperate rainforest and emerald rivers on a historic trail linking Chile to Argentina. Stay in a palafito boutique hotel perched on stilts above the tides, a riverside cottage, and a cozy homesteaders cabin as you travel from the Chilean coast through southern towns and on to the Andean highlands.
