What does Finisterra Mean?
WE ARE NOT YOUR TYPICAL TRAVEL AGENCY…
What makes Finisterra Travel different? We are not your typical online travel agency, nor are we quite a tour operator, we are international travel planners with a flair for unique experiences.
No one wants to feel like a tourist which is why when we plan a bespoke trip for you, we try to make your experiences as authentic as possible. We love to create tailor-made holidays to the further-flung corners of the globe. Our custom trips are deliberate cocktails of varied and unique ingredients, carefully proportioned, and flavoured to your taste.
Our unique itineraries are handcrafted by our travel designers to best showcase some of our favourite destinations around Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, North America, and Europe.
Finisterra’s expertise includes luxury, adventure, and sustainable travel. We are definitely not ‘armchair travellers’ and have firsthand experience of where you’ll be heading. Travel is our passion and we can’t wait to share some of our favourite destinations with you.
We also understand that your expectations and reasons for travelling are as unique as you are; therefore we endeavour to accommodate and provide you with exceptional, curated adventures worldwide.

WE LOVE TRAVEL. SERIOUSLY…
We are true travel addicts often planning our own travels two adventures in advance. Not a day goes by where we don’t squeal with excitement over the prospect of going somewhere new. Our mutual travel obsession, insatiable curiosity, and love of sustainable travel are what really bond us. We are the #worldlygirlies .
Passionate about sustainable travel and adventure led founder Keri Montgomery to create Finisterra Travel in 2012 and welcome Nicola Wilson, travel enthusiast extraordinaire, onboard in 2015. Unstoppable our adventures, we’ve since travelled together to Colombia, Argentina, India, Bhutan, Thailand, Peru, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Panama, Scotland, Switzerland, USA, and Italy. Where are we heading next? Follow the hashtag #worldlygirlies on social media to find out!
SERVICES WE OFFER
Finisterra Travel has partnered with Manulife Insurance to provide travel insurance for our clients. We offer different travel insurance plans to cover trip cancellation, missed connections and itinerary changes, baggage issues, emergency medical and other issues, and more. We all know that things can go wrong when you travel, make sure you are protected. After all…insurance is sexy.
At Finisterra, we are here to guide you, to inspire you, to handcraft an experience to your desire, because every traveller is searching for that perfect experience. So let us help you find yours…
Travelling alone or with your 20 best friends? We can create your ideal experience abroad. If you are a group leader of 10 or more, you travel for free!
We specialize in creating culturally immersive itineraries with hands-on experiences to some of the most spectacular places on earth. We coordinate high-quality, escorted group tours of all sizes. We also have itineraries that cater to special interests including yoga, painting, hiking, gastronomy, diving, wildlife, photography, and eco-tourism.
At Finisterra we believe that educational travel is an intrinsic component of every young person’s development. International travel is an education; it opens minds, inspires, challenges preconceptions, and develops social skills. We work closely with educators and institutions to create a diverse range of educational tours to a variety of destinations. Some of our itineraries can be found here.
For the independent traveller who loves the planning process but may need a bit of guidance, Finisterra Travel offers 45-60 minute travel consultations with a destination specialist. Reserve a consult either in the planning stages or have us review your final itinerary in order to enhance your itinerary. Having travelled to all 7 continents, we can offer you guidance that will save you days of planning!
With the rising costs of airfare these days, including baggage fees and fuel surcharges, travellers are spending more time researching the best deals. Look no further as Finisterra Travel offers the best rates available to wherever you’d like to travel.
Ultimately, we want you to have peace of mind when you come with us. And we’ll do everything we can to secure that. We fully understand that these are uncertain times that we are living in and the picture is constantly and rapidly changing. Please note that you can make a risk-free deposit with us that is fully refundable in most cases (minus the transaction fee of 4%) up to 30 days before departure or postpone at any time for free.
Since most of our trips are custom designed, we’re assessing the options and taking into account where we need to leave things open, remain flexible, or perhaps put two solutions in place. Our partners around the globe are also fully aware of the situation which is why having long-standing business relationships built on trust really works for all sides, just as we saw in early 2020 when we had to postpone/rebook/cancel hundreds of trips.
Please contact us with any questions or concerns regarding our Covid-19 policies.
