For the fourth time, Austin-Lehman Adventures—offering adventure vacations on five continents—has acquired another travel company under its name: Go South Adventures, a tour operator specializing in Latin American destinations.
Through the acquisition, Austin-Lehman Adventures is expanding its portfolio for South American itineraries by more than 20 percent. “By acquiring Go South Adventures, we are also giving our loyal clients the opportunity to travel more extensively with Austin-Lehman Adventures in the Galapagos and mainland Ecuador, Peru, Chile, and Antarctica,” says Dan Austin, founder and director of Austin-Lehman Adventures.
The new South American programs available through Austin-Lehman Adventures will remain primarily multi-sport and cultural. Traditionally, the tour operator has featured multi-activity trips with activities like biking, hiking, sea kayaking and white-water rafting. The Go South Adventures website, meanwhile, will remain intact, with added resources linking to Austin-Lehman Adventures’ website.
The acquisition went into effect on Aug. 1. Previous acquisitions made by Austin-Lehman Adventures include Backcountry Tours in 2000, Euro-Bike Tours in 2008 and Croatia Bicycle Tours in 2010. For more information, visit austinlehman.com.
