About Sapa Pana Travel

We want you to enjoy Latin America, as we do!

Sapa Pana Travel | Wherever you go, we have been!

Johan Rijswijck started Sapa Pana Travel in 2003. Passion for traveling, and discovering a market for beautiful journeys to this continent, made him decide. The name Sapa Pana Travel is carefully chosen. The words 'Sapa' and 'Pana' are derived from the Quechua, an indigenous language still spoken in parts of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia and Argentina. In Quechua these words mean: The Unique Journey.

We organize individual tailor-made holidays, all your wishes are taken into account, premium group travel and exclusive car journeys, to special places in Latin America, the Caribbean and the Antarctic.

We believe that everyone can plan holidays. However, hitting the right chord leading to the ultimate experience is only possible with knowledge of the destination, own travel experiences, and above all... passion. We put together our extensive knowledge, our professional established network and our enthusiasm for Latin America to design the most interesting and most unique travel experiences.

Expertise, own travel experience, passion
We have an extensive knowledge of the destinations we offer, because we stayed there for a while and because we go back regularly to discover new great places. This expertise, personal experience and passion is the foundation of our company. Our employees are very committed, experienced, full of enthusiasm and without fuss. Personal attention for our customers is a must and we strive for quality down to the smallest detail.

Strong established local network
Because we need to rely on our local partners, that you are in good hands, we only work with the best local companies. They know you're traveling with Sapa Pana Travel and that you expect a high level of service!
Ou local partners are a mix of people from Western Europe and locals, so they understand exactly how u want to be assisted and at the same time we have the right contacts at the destination as well. 

We strive for an optimized price/quality ratio. We do not compromise on the quality of the intinerary to propose you an itinerary with a more competitive price. However sometimes a smart planning can result in a cheaper price. However, we must vote in favour for every travel itinerary offered, because we like you to return as a customer in the future.
