Abercrombie & Kent has released its 2019 Latin America portfolio, including luxury private and small group journeys to Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala, Ecuador & The Galapagos, Columbia, Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina.
The portfolio is packed with new ways to travel in the ‘New World’, journeys filled with ancient sites and modern sounds, extraordinary landscapes, unique wildlife, mesmerising cultures, histories, myth and travel magic unmatched anywhere else in the world.
Abercrombie & Kent Co-Founder, Chairman & CEO Geoffrey Kent says “Latin America is a wonderland very close to my heart. There’s so much to explore in the many different lands here. So many beautiful people to meet, stories to hear, dishes to savour, dances to learn.”
A&K’s hand-crafted private and small group journeys cover the length and breadth of this amazing continent-and-a-half, journeying from the Pacific and Gulf coasts of Mexico and the fractured jazz of Cuba in the north, through the ancient ruins and pre-Columbian civilisations of Meso-america, across the Equator’s teeming ecosystems – the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon Rainforest – and from North to South along the great Western spine of the Andes.
“There are so many sophisticated, intriguing, pulsating cities here,” says Kent. “Havana, Oaxaca, Lima, Rio, Santiago, Montevideo, and of course stylish Buenos Aires, where they share my twin passions for polo and tango.”
There are also numerous events and experiences where A&K alone can arrange special access and take you behind the scenes. These include designer hotels and eco-lodges, estancias, luxury trains, small ships and megayachts, and glamorous high desert camps.
Yet for all the wonderful people and culture, Kent says when he thinks of South America, his imagination is inevitably drawn to the very south of the continent; to the dramatic wilds of Patagonia, and the Torres Del Paine National Park, which he believes to be one of the world’s most pristine and mesmerising landscapes.
“This is heart-stopping scenery, and life-affirming travel. True luxury. It’s one of my very favourite destinations anywhere in the world, and no one can take you there like A&K,” Kent said.
