Founded in 1994, Earthbound Adventures is a pioneer in eco-tourism and a leading adventure-travel company offering unique treks and tours to South America. Whether you dream of swimming with sea lions in the Galapagos or drifting through the Amazon rain forest on a moonlit canoe trip, Dancing Samba In Rio De Janeiro, Tango in Buenos Aires, or hiking the Inca Trail, you will be fully immersed in this breathtaking landscape among diverse cultures. Carefully crafted tours led by local naturalists ensure a tour respectful of the environment. We purposely operate on a smaller level with personal attentions.

Unlike other adventure travel groups, we limit the number of trips to each destination, traveling in groups of only six to a dozen people to minimize our impact on the fragile surroundings. Because the preservation of our planet is of utmost importance, we support international conservation organizations. We also donate money to plant 30 trees for each person who travels with us to offset the carbon footprint inherent in travel.

All of our tours are based on our own personal adventures over many years, so you're traveling to places we know intimately. Our carefully chosen guides are South Americans who have first-hand knowledge of your destination. So, while you are benefiting from a native's perspective, we are reinvesting in the local economy.

Standing out among the first environmentally responsible travel companies, a 1995 U.S. News & World Report article cited Earthbound Adventures as one of the best eco-tour companies in the U.S. We invite and encourage you to join us and see the difference!

OUR TEAM

Tony Cohen

Tour Leader

Unlike other tour directors who have spent days, weeks or, at most, months traveling to the destinations they offer clients, Tony Cohen has literally spent years hiking the far corners of South America and other continents. He knows these regions and cultures intimately, as only an intrepid backpacker can.

Born in Israel in a small farming community, he served three years in the military before taking an intensive 18-month course to become a professional tour leader.  For 2 years, he coordinated a youth movement program where he honed his skills by overseeing a wide range of programs, including after school activities, summer camp, hiking and biking trips, and service tours throughout Israel.

In 1982, he embarked on a childhood dream of exploring and living among the people of South America. For the next four years he backpacked the length and breadth of the continent, from climbing Aconcangua to exploring the remote Bolivian jungle. His travels have taken him into the heart of Central America, the far reaches of Alaska and Canada, and the countries of South East Asia. His remarkable adventures lasted seven years and continue to this day.

In the late 1980s, he settled in the U.S. and took the Sierra Club tour leader course to gain knowledge of the burgeoning field of eco-tourism. From this love and passion for travel and people, Tony founded Earthbound Adventures in 1993.
