A continent more dramatic and varied would be hard to find. Landscapes which stretch as far as the eye can see: from the mountains of the Peruvian Andes to Brazil's dense rainforest, the arid desert of Chile's north and the vast Pampa country of Argentina. Culturally varied too, each country boasts its own rich and colourful history from pre-Columbian times to the present day. The people are warm and fun-loving, the food a star attraction and a broad selection of lodgings from slick city bolt holes to charming boutique estancias.

For over a decade, A&K has been delivering luxury journeys throughout the continent. In 2000, A&K Lima was the first office to open and there are now a further four offices (Santiago, Buenos Aires, Quito and Cusco) and over 80 dedicated staff members.
