VLA is an adventure travel pioneer offering the planet's most awe-inspiring selection of affordable small-group tours, safaris and expeditions. Our award-winning trips embrace authentic accommodation, exotic cuisine and local transport to put travellers on a first-name basis with the planet’s people, cultures, landscapes and wildlife.
In 1990, I launched VLA with the belief that other travellers would share my desire to experience authentic adventures in a responsible and sustainable manner. We've grown from a one-man show to a company of more than 8 offices, and from a handful of trips in Latin America to more than 48 adventures and beyond ! Our 200,000 travellers experience the real world with us every year. What hasn't changed is our passion for making sure you get behind the scenes to experience the real world in an authentic and sustainable manner.
Please note that our staff are out on the lake or on a tour with a group throughout the day, and your E-mail will not go unanswered. The best way to get in contact with us is via our email address. Thank you & we look forward to hearing from you soon!
