We specialise, which means all of our know-how, experience and contacts are focused exclusively on Antarctica and Latin America. We have appraised each property and restaurant ourselves, and know the terrain and distances. We have hand-selected the guides and private collections. We know what’s hot, what’s to pass on, when to travel and how to experience the very best of a region.
Peace of Mind
By booking through Plan South America you have the security of a financially protected holiday as offered by our ATOL licence (10811)
We offer a safety net in a part of the world where things don’t always run to plan. If something does go wrong, we’re contactable 24/7 by phone, email and WhatsApp. We speak the language and know how things work.
Community and conservation take an evermore prominent roll in our operations as we work towards a more sustainable future for our planet.
For every journey we design, we pledge a financial contribution to carefully selected local initiatives in health, education and conservation.
Our carbon offsetting programme has been developed in partnership with the World Land Trust.
We check you into all flights and e-mail boarding passes. If there’s a delay, we do our best to alert you in time to escape a long airport hang-out. Where available, fast track immigration is a given, and avoids hours of queuing in sweltering conditions after long haul flights.
We give those looking for adventure the chance to travel to the wild places – which often means those with least infrastructure. We arrange special access to private estates and family-run fincas and, where budget allows, we build the camps ourselves.
We remember birthdays and anniversaries and dream up indulgent surprises. Our guests always get that little table by the window or under the olive tree, and staff have been briefed about appetites and allergies.
We provide advice on everything from packing to vaccinations and recommend the best books to read ahead of your journey. We even curate individual playlists.
Everybody has their personal vision of heaven. For some this means total independence, for others the company of the brightest and best guide in the region. We work to your brief, whilst advising from personal, tried-and-tested experience of all of our destinations. That’s why 80% of our business comes from repeats and referrals.
