Travel & Covid-19

Knowmad Adventures is a pioneer in custom-built, private adventure and luxury travel in South America. High-quality, off-the-beaten path, private travel is what we know and have been recognized for as a world leader. Our planning and operations have always prioritized safety and security, and traveler satisfaction in all situations has always been our goal and compass. Now more than ever we offer flexibility and an emphasis on safety in all aspects of your trip.


Want to travel but worried what the future holds? Generally if you decide you need to change your plans you can reschedule your travels for up to two years from previously scheduled travels up to 90 days prior, and in some cases less. We’re people helping people, and are committed to you.

Health & Safety

Helping private travelers explore South America’s remotest corners since 2009, social distancing is part of our fabric. However these times require thorough and methodical health & safety protocols which we’ve instituted and are continuously monitoring and improving as more of our countries of operation open.

  • As countries reopen, we’re working hard with our many local partners and stakeholders to further establish and refine safety protocols.

Supported Private Trips

Private travel is more essential than ever, along with knowledgeable and caring support. With Knowmad you will ride in your own sanitized vehicles, visit sites and attractions at strategic times, and have access to 24/7 support both locally and in the U.S.

Access & Opportunity

Everyone will wade back into travel at their own pace and according to comfort level, which we are fully in support of. For all of us as the travel world reawakens there will be unique opportunities that offer a silver lining we for one couldn’t be more excited about. Ever dream of visiting Galapagos with no one but the animals? Want to hike Patagonia’s crown jewel Torres del Paine when it has a tiny fraction of the visitors it normally would? Dream of discovering a lost city like Machu Picchu hiking for days without another hiker in sight? We’re excited and ready as you gain comfort in traveling to help you take advantage of these once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
