Abercrombie & Kent has released its new collection of journeys through Latin America.
December 2017

Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent has released its new collection of journeys through Latin America. Twelve countries are covered with a range of travel styles and focuses from journeys handcrafted for the individual traveller to a range of more off the beaten track hosted small group tours. What each has in common are the quintessential high standards expected from A&K. Each journey is perfectly balanced with seamless flow from start to finish, opportunities for self-discovery and the ‘Design Your Day’ initiative which gives travellers a choice of included excursions or activities at no additional cost. 

From the icebound realms of southern Chile and Argentina to the flavours and colours of Mexico in the north, from Peru’s rich Inca heritage to the beaches of Brazil, there’s a myriad of natural and cultural attractions to experience. 

Just some of the new additions for 2018 include the 10-day ‘Flavours & Rhythms of Brazil’ which combines Rio’s magical sights with the mighty Iguazu Falls, Brasilia and Salvador da Bahia. Futuristic architecture is a focus in Brasilia while immersive cooking and performing arts opportunities are included in Salvador da Bahia, and a behind the scenes peek at rare birdlife at Iguazu Falls is an unforgettable wildlife experience. Prices from $8,225 per person. 

An expanded ‘Buenos Aires to Rio’ is a 12-day journey from the Argentinian capital to cosmopolitan Rio with new experiences including an estancia stay and gaucho interaction, a fun and intimate hands-on dinner party in Buenos Aires and Brazil’s colonial gem, Ouro Preto, a base for visiting the extraordinary outdoor contemporary art installations of Inhotim. Prices from $13,225 per person.  

A new 12-day adventure in Bolivia reveals the country’s breathtaking scenic wonders, from the salt flats of Uyuni (and optional Airstream camper adventure) to the islands of Lake Titicaca. Travellers are introduced to the old Jesuit heritage at remote missions and settlements, as well as traditional handicrafts at Sucre’s Sunday market and an indigenous tasting menu at La Paz dining sensation, Gustu. Prices from $7,245 per person.  

Travelling foodies will relish the new 11-day ‘Flavours of Mexico’ which is a journey of culinary discovery savouring the top-notch tequila and tortillas of Mexico City, complete with chocolate tasting, the aromas and flavours of Oaxaca’s street food, and its mezcal, as well as time-honoured family recipes passed down from generation to generation. Prices from $10,395 per person.

A private journey in Guatemala brings bygone cultures to life with traditional markets selling handcrafted textiles, colonial cobblestoned streetscapes plus World Heritage listed monuments. A pristine wilderness of volcanoes, lakes, rainforest and beaches is the backdrop for coffee production, wildlife viewing and shaman ceremonies while a trip across the border to Honduras reveals the ancient Maya cultural centre of Copan and a delightful hacienda stay. Prices from $10,165 per person.  

There is much more to inspire in the new collection with Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador and Colombia also showcased in a variety of single and multi-country private journeys, hosted small group tours and short add-ons for more in-depth local experiences.  

For families and multi-generational travellers, cruising in the Galapagos Islands comes highly recommended with a range of vessels available to suit different needs. Costa Rica is another engaging family destination with its variety of ecosystems and wildlife presenting the ultimate stage for outdoor adventure.  

There are also ideas for special milestone celebrations like booking out an exclusive Argentine country estancia or taking a super-luxe beachside villa in Mexico. The possibilities are endless.

The Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP) presence, first established in Africa, also extends to South America where it supports the inspirational Children of the Rainbow project in Peru’s Sacred Valley. AKP assistance has enabled the supply of meals, medical care, education and hope for disadvantaged children in the area. A&K guests can visit this project on their way to or from Machu Picchu. A donation to AKP is made on behalf of every A&K guest travelling.
