ARGENTINA

Argentina is a country of contrasts: landscapes, weather and culture vary greatly from one region to another: the special charm of the Northern region with a legacy of pre Columbian and colonial traditions, the abundance of wild life, flora and water at Iguassu Falls & Jungle in the Northeast, to the vastness, isolation and breathtaking views of the glaciers and marine life of Patagonia in the South. The wine and sunshine in the Cuyo region and the brightness and exuberance of tango in Buenos Aires, the “Paris of South America”, and the Pampas home to the “gaucho”, are some of the wonders of this land of contrasts.
Have you ever dreamed of having a drink with ice from a glacier? How about a moonlit dinner at the End of the World? Or learning to cook the best “Argentinean Style” barbecue?, becoming a Gaucho for a day, playing golf in Patagonia, learning to dance in the birthplace of tango, enjoying the softness of the seventh natural wonder in your skin, discovering the pleasures of excellent food and wine and experiencing the candor of locals and their traditions and colors.
Argentina, land of contrasts, has something for everyone. Let our expertise lead you to discover your own experience in “Our World”.
