Argentina's cosmopolitan capital city and the surrounding area boast a population of over 13 million people. See the sites of Buenos Aires like the historic buildings of San Telmo, live tango in the colourful barrio of La Boca and outdoor markets in upmarket Recoleta. Maybe we can tempt you with an historical walking tour through parts of the city, or perhaps a journey that traces through the history of Tango followed by a live show and sumptuous meal.


Cuyo & the Andean Northwest

Visit the mountainous areas of western and northwestern Argentina, home of the highest mountains in the Andes and an area which produces some of the worlds finest wines. Maybe you'll get a peak of the mighty Aconcagua or enjoy a tour of andean wineries in the province of Mendoza.





Mesopotamia & the Northeast

Mesopotamia (meaning land between rivers in Greek) is the humid area of Northeastern Argentina - stretching from Entre Rios above Buenos Aires through Corrientes and up to Misiones in the sub-tropical far north where the spectacular Iguazú Falls (Cataratas) meet Brazil and Paraguay. Join us for a tour of Iguazú's three kilometres of waterfalls, along with its unique ecosystem.







The Chaco

The Gran Chaco - the last South American frontier - is a large, hot area divided amongst Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazil. Argentina's slice of the Gran Chaco contains the provinces of Chaco, Formosa and Santiago del Estero.






The Pampas

Argentina's central-eastern plains are the fertile bread-basket (and beef-basket) of the country. This area includes Buenos Aires and many world-class beaches in the surrounding area. Why not visit Argentina's vibrant Mar del Plata in the summer or one of the more tranquil beaches along the coast. Further inland experience a couple of nights on an estancia where you can relex in the quiet countryside or enjoy a horse-riding adventure.


Patagonia & the Lake District

Patagonia is the expansive area of land stretching from south of the Neuquén and Colorado rivers right down to the southern tip of Argentina. Argentinian Patagonia is home to under two million people giving it a population density of just over 2 people per square kilometre, with less than 1/km2 in Santa Cruz province (compare this to the South Island of New Zealand with over 6 people per km2. Apart from the wilderness, Patagonia is home to some remarkable geography such as the Perito Moreno Glacier and exotic fauna such as the guanaco, cougar, rhea and numerous marine life like whales, penguins and seals. Experience the beauty of Patagonia firsthand!

Tierra del Fuego

Tierra del Fuego - "Land of Fire" - is an archipelago separated from the mainland at the southern tip of South America. Visit Ushuaia - the end of the world - Argentina's capital of Tierra del Fuego and the most southern city in the world. Ushuaia is only 1000km from the Antarctic peninsula and as such offers an unique tourism experience unlike anywhere else in the world.
