We are a travel curator that grants travellers awe inspiring moments. We have taken adventure travel to the next level by making it sustainable, inspirational, and intimate. All our experiences are defined by a ‘WOW’ factor that separates them from the rest. We at Wildthentic connect you to nature as well as to yourself.
Wildthentic was born out of a family’s profound love for nature and outdoor sporting activities…allow us to explain. Let’s start at the beginning, when a young Spanish alpinist named, Francesc Viladomat, was forced to find refuge among the slopes of the Pyrenees in order to escape the Spanish Civil War. Luckily, Viladomat was an astute and resourceful man who managed to make the best out of his situation. He became an Olympic skier and snow business entrepreneur who founded Pas de la Casa, which thanks to his son, Joan, later became Grandvalira, the world-class ski resort located in Andorra.
Viladomat’s son, Joan, quickly grew to love the mountains and everything they represented. Like his father, Joan found the slopes to be exhilarating, beautiful, and calming. Once Joan realized that he could move his body while simultaneously enjoying nature’s anatomy his passion and fascination for authentic wilderness experiences began to grow.
Joan quickly followed in his father’s footsteps and became a pioneer in his own right by travelling the world, constantly trying different outdoor activities, and inevitably diving into his own business endeavours. Joan made sure to put all of his knowledge to good use while also honouring his father’s legacy. The entrepreneur extended the reach of his family name by transforming Pas de la Casa into Grandvalira as well as creating PGI Greenland and Mil Outdoor, two successful tour operators whose purpose is to provide travellers with unique and ultimately life-changing experiences.
PGI Greenland is a branch of Pas Grau Group (PGI) in north Greenland. It is an outdoor activity based company located in Ilulissat. Mil Outdoor, on the other hand, is based in Argentina’s breathtaking Patagonia. Both locations share magnificent beauty and offer spectacular access to authentic local tours that inspire. The very same experiences that impulsed Joan to create these two companies are what set the gold standard, in his mind, of what travel should be. His vision to share more than just fun travel moments reached a culmination when he finally understood that spectacular moments must be sought after and respected. He realized that not only must people be willing to exit their comfort zone, they must also do research and prepare for such a trip. Wildthentic does just that.
After encountering many soul-stirring adventures the entrepreneur finally decided he needed to find a way to offer transformative travel to the public, this is when Wildthentic began to take shape and evolve from being a way of life to a shared travel philosophy. Joan not only wanted to live a wild and authentic travel life, he wanted others to as well. Joan and his team of travel experts have managed to develop the travel rating system you never knew you needed…until now.

It’s time to awaken your soul and embrace the moment.
