Harvey’s adventures go deep into this arresting region. On a recent Argentina trip, travelers went horseback riding on the cliffs of the Uco Valley and kayaking under the Perito Moreno Glacier. Past trips have included rappelling on Cerro López in Patagonia, a helicopter tour of Argentina's Darwin Ridge, and a penguin-spotting adventure on Isla Martillo, off the coast of Ushuaia, Argentina.

His secret? Working with guides born in the area. Harvey himself first moved to the region as a high school student studying abroad, and never looked back.

This year, he's excited about the Salta Province of Argentina. "Salta is an incredible small city, and te surrounds offer llama trekking that combines unimagined scenery and unique cultural experiences," he says. He also mentions Cafayate, which is producing top wines and has "great authentic lodging like House of Jasmines," and the villages of Purmamarca and Jujuy, with access to hikes like the Seven Colors Hill.

"My husband and I have worked with Jordan and his team at Knowmad Adventures on two trips to South America. We didn't think we could beat our first trip to Buenos Aires, Patagonia, and Iguazu Falls. But our second trip (Machu Picchu, the Amazon, and Lima) was even more spectacular. The Knowmad staff are all South America experts, and Jordan has a vast network of in-country guides. Every detail of every day has been thoroughly vetted, and there are contingencies in place in case of a problem. All excursions and guides are top-notch, professionalm and always had our safety in mind. Jordan's team left thoughtful notes for us whenever we arrived at new accommodations. I could go on and on. But let me say it this way: we are planning our third trip with Knowmad for next year, this time bringing our adult children. I couldn't imagine having a better partner in this process than Jordan and his team!" — Michele C.
