Welcome to our Atelier!

Atelier’s dream came true.
Let’s make yours come true, too.

“I’ve invested more than 20 years of my life traveling around South America, both exploring and on business trips, sharing stories of boundless beauty and incredible attractions with travel experts or the media, and meeting like-minded travelers from all over the world. I think all of this helps me understand the needs, cultures, expectations, and travel dreams or people who visit.

Atelier is the result of this passion – to help everyone that comes our way create their own amazing memories of this incredible continent, the one that we call home. Our vision is to showcase the real South America at all times through each individually crafted itinerary and unique experience. When we do this it not only makes a mark on our cherished traveling guests but also supports and sustains the host countries and communities we visit along the way.

Atelier’s mission is to use our combined decades of expertise, first-hand knowledge, in-country guides and deep experience to create bespoke journeys across South America. All the while the interests, preferences, and needs of our guests are at the forefront.

There’s nothing left to say but enjoy South America your way, with our help!”
