About Us

The best and most meaningful trips are those where you experience a true connection and understanding with the local environment. Most of us have been into a museum where we didn't do our research, had no guidance, and wandered around aimlessly not really soaking up any of the information because we had no background or context. Without a guide, traveling to new places can be like this too. With such a vast and varied amount of places to stay and things to do, see and taste, and so many differing opinions and reviews available on the internet, planning a trip to Latin America or Antarctica can be extremely time-consuming and overwhelming.  


Lost World Adventures has been planning customized adventures for more than 25 years, beginning in Venezuela where we pioneered our very first trip.  Our trip consultants are passionate about their destinations and know the regions within each country inside and out from first-hand experience. After getting to know you, your interests, preferences, and pleasures, our trip consultants utilize their expert knowledge and experiences to build you a one-of-a-kind trip perfectly suited to your degree of adventure.


Well-maintained relationships with tour guides, hoteliers, airlines, and ground management services allow us to book vetted trips that guarantee you the best value and experience while saving you massive amounts of time and anxiety. Our professional, bilingual local guides, are eager to share knowledge of their culture, landscape, and area resources allowing you total immersion in your experience, and our hotel partners are surveyed by us directly. Lost World Adventures and every one of our partners strive to accommodate all of our global travelers in a socially and economically conscious and inclusive way.
