Challenges and Expeditions

All of our trips involve a healthy fix of adventure, but we are always delighted to increase the dose for those adrenaline junkies who crave the rawest, most extreme experiences available in Latin America and Antarctica.

We have partnered with a selection of adventurers and expedition leaders to develop a series of challenges designed to push the limit of human physical and mental ability. We are always developing ideas and welcome any new and original briefs. Past examples include snow kiting expeditions across Antarctica, entries to the 9000km Dakar Rally and treks across the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. We are currently designing 4-day multi-discipline adventures in Chilean Patagonia and the Ecuadorian Amazon.

The Andes mountain range is South America’s prime adventure playground, encompassing volcanoes, glaciers, high-altitude deserts and lagoons. Drive Argentina’s legendary tire-thrashing Route 40, snaking its way along the eastern edge of the Andes; raft the immense rapids of Chile’s Futaleufú River, scale Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Americas, heli-ski an active volcano, cross the mountains on horseback, or in winter, take the journey by husky-driven sleds.

We specially curate off-grid adventures, exclusive to PSA clients: penetrate the farthest reaches of the Amazon Rainforest on a 6-day expedition, racing traditional canoes with local tribes and learning survival skills from deep forest battalions. A brand new experience in Bolivia is a spectacular hot-air balloon ride over the Uyuni Salt Flats, giving an unparalleled perspective of this extraordinary landscape.

Adding Central America to our portfolio in 2017, we have refined an awesome menu of adventures there to include cave-diving in Mexico’s fresh-water cenotes; zip-lining through the Costa Rican rainforest; ultralight flights along Panama’s Caribbean coast; camping amongst ancient Mayan ruins in the Guatemalan jungle, and scuba diving in the famous Blue Hole off the coast of Belize.

Antarctic adventures are arguably the most memorable of them all – kayak around icebergs the size of small towns, discover Antarctic marine-life in a 2-man submarine from a luxury super-yacht, and take the polar plunge at Deception Island, the caldera of an active volcano.

Send us a brief of what you have in mind or let us stir your imagination with adventures designed to inspire, challenge and revitalise.
