The Ekkaia Story

Life Changing Stories!

We dreamed of the moment when Ekkaia would mean more than just a travel agency and become a network of people, a family, a community. A place where the fun begins the moment you click on our home page for the first time. And together, we design that exciting and unique life experience you’ve been waiting for and will remain at the heart of your storytelling for years to come.

Initially, we created Ekkaia Travel in 2004 as a by-product of the Programa Andes Tropicales Foundation, as a tool to better serve visitors to the Venezuelan Andean region. In time, the Foundation expanded its activities to Argentina and Bolivia.

We grow, we “dress” differently and show a new “face”, but the commitment to our core values remain the same:

  • Promote community-based tourism.

  • Invest efforts and resources in the conservation of the natural spaces that make up our portfolio.

  • Offer an intimate one-on-one sharing of unique cultural heritages.

  • Support and train local communities in the best client service possible.

Today, We, launches a new initiative and builds on this experience and uses it as a stepping-stone towards an even bigger dream: reaching out to other Latin American countries that harbor extraordinary cultural and natural heritages.


The Ekkaia Seal of Quality is all about the satisfaction of having a track record of recurrent clients we are proud to consider “family”. We believe that Great Places for Great People defines our concept of family, community and the responsibility of sharing the commitment to maintain these privileged spaces. You are an important part of the equation!
