Welcome to our Travel Inspiration page!
Our Finisterra Travel Designers will have you dreaming about your next trip to an exotic, remote, and unique location somewhere on the globe in no time. Find inspiration in our tailor-made travel experiences for individuals, couples, families, and groups. We know that the internet can be helpful, but also overwhelming and exhausting when it comes to planning an adventure. Robots rarely ask you how you want to feel. But for us, bespoke travel begins with a feeling, a desire, a curiosity.
Like a perfectly tailored outfit, each adventure is beautifully crafted to best fit our travellers. We are here to help you experience this beautiful planet on your terms.

Experience the Amazon while on a small-ship luxury cruise. When you enter the Ecuadorian Amazon, you are entering a world that few people have the opportunity to experience.
The smells, sounds, and tastes are all different.
Of course, so are the cultures that live within the communities.
Who are we? We are Keri & Nicola and we LOVE to travel. To say that we are travel enthusiasts would be a gross understatement, we are travel addicts often planning our own travels a least two adventures in advance. Needless to say our day job (co-owners of Finisterra Travel) helps us to fuel our…
Late July 2020, during a pandemic, Nicola decides to travel overseas…all in the name of love. She travels from Vancouver, Canada, to the Canary Islands, Spain and tells us about her experience flying internationally during COVID 19. These are her travel tips on how to keep safe while flying during a pandemic.
I bobbed in the ocean, sitting on my board, breathing heavy from the paddle out past the break. I already felt like giving up, but my eyes were zeroed in on the horizon, squinting away the sunrise. My brain was on overdrive. This one? …

Packing. Ugh. Just the thought of it stresses me out which seems odd as I do it so often. I travel about 20ish weeks of the year, essentially living out of a bag for a great part of the year. I can’t say that I have a fool-proof packing agenda, but I have definitely learned…
Nicola and I had the incredible opportunity to visit the Kingdom of Bhutan, a tiny Buddhist country tucked in the heart of the Himalayas, in July of 2017 as guests of a very gracious local host. He created a custom Bhutan adventure just for the two of us. Although both Nicola and I have visited…

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Traveling to Kerala is not for the faint of heart, however it is absolutely worth it! In September 2016, Keri and I braved the journey to Southern India to attend the Kerala Travel Mart. We were fortunate enough to be invited on a tour beforehand, taking us from Bangalore to Cochin for 10 days….
Tour leading is an amazing way to see the world. For sure. It is not without its challenges however. I’ve had many mind-blowingly incredible experiences with a smattering of terrible ones. When asked about my most difficult tour leading experience, I have the same reaction – I pause, tilt my head to the side and…
My first backpacking trip to Peru was when I was 20 years old and an idealistic vegetarian on a $20 per day budget. That’s $20 per day for everything – transportation, hostel, sightseeing entrances, and food. Being a vegetarian anywhere is South America is a challenge but particularly when you are on a super tight…
During my tour leading career I have been cursed at by group members for setting pre-dawn wake-up calls, I’ve encountered mini-protests within my group when informing them of departure time, and I’ve literally dragged people out of bed. Why? Am I a horribly sadistic person? Nope…in fact the opposite is true. It’s my desire to…

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 5%) 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.
