Adventure Travel Guide
The nature of adventure travel is constantly evolving and so must our Pro criteria. As local agencies use technology and global communication to align on the ground guides who provide an authentic experience to their guests, many adventure travel employees are no longer in the field, but coordinating trips. Patagonia Pro is excited to work with client facing, technical and sport experience providers. Given the size of the industry, we are no longer working with agents, coordinators, and logistics staff.
