How this holiday makes a difference

Argentina tailor made holiday: the story of this holiday company

We started our Latin America tours in the nineties before moving here in 2000. We started offering both tailor made and group travels sharing our extensive knowledge and guiding experience throughout Latin America from Cuba to Argentina. We have an expertise that is unchallenged! Our many local contacts make all the difference when it comes to creating the special itineraries we provide and we are considered family by many of the people we work with, even encouraging outstanding local guides to start their own businesses as we once did. The dream we have is to make many more once in a lifetime experiences for our clients and to inspire their lives.

Responsible tourism: Argentina tailor made holiday

Environment

This program, modules and all tailor made itineries are offered by a certified mountain leader with a University degree, trained in eco-awareness and with deep respect for nature and wildlife. The knowledge that we will share, the awe and inspiration that will be felt for the greatness of the Andes mountains and the vastness of the Altiplano we trust shall contribute in people’s lifes to appreciate and support the preservation of our natural reserves. Exploring the remote and most beautiful places in the Andes and Altiplano can only be done by car as regular buses only drive from one place to the other or do not exist on certain routes.

The traditional horseback trekkings which we also offer with local gauchos is one of the purest responsible ways of travel you can imagine but is of course only possible in a very limited area with the time span a traveller usually has. In these itineries long distances have to be covered as this is part of the Andes adventure. We trust that the personal impact and the inspiration that will be generated by these special travels will have a positive effect in people’s lives and decision making with respect to nature. When staying in our estancias and pousadas, or more simple guesthouses, we will always check if the management is taking care of the natural reserves and what can be improved in case this turns out to be necessary.

Community

We propose to make one or two visits to social projects for children along our itinery and see in which way we can make a contribution to the local community of the Andean people. Clients can also come forward with one or more social projects they would like to visit. Before the start of our trip some research will have to be done and contacts to be made in order to make this a success of all parties involved, Your guide speaks fluently Spanish so there will be no languange barrier between you, the teachers, children or coordinators involved with the project.

All local operators are small and local owners, meaning that the income remains within the country and creates a real economic contribution to its people and country. Accommodations are chosen by the client according to budget, taste and style, when they are locally owned this will have our preference, when this is not the case we will inform the client with further details so that a well balanced decision can be made.
