Transportation

Travel through Argentina, from Patagonia and the Iguazú Falls. Due to its vast length, we are going to travel from place to place by plane. We are going to know the most spectacular areas of the country. Peninsula Valdés, brings together unique species such as the Southern right whale, several species of birds, dolphins, killer whales, sea elephants, sea lions, Magellanic penguins.

Tierra del Fuego contains on a single island different ecosystems, which typify all of Patagonia: South Atlantic Coast, steppe, Andes surrounded by glaciers, snow, lakes and forests. In the legendary Beagle Channel you can navigate to observe its abundant wildlife: sea lions, penguins, cormorants, etc. This area is also the gateway to the spectacular White Continent, Antarctica.

One of the most magnificent sceneries in the Western Hemisphere is the Calafate region. Numerous glacial lakes reflect the magnificence of the snow-capped summits. Glaciers, such as the famous Perito Moreno, are surrounded by this spectacular vegetation. You may go hiking, horseback riding, and spend the night at rural ranches on the banks of turquoise-colored lakes in these places.

The Iguazú Falls are one of the world’s most magnificent and colossal waterfalls. 275 waterfalls cascade their waters from incredible heights across a nearly 3-kilometer front organized in an amphitheater. Surrounded by an exuberant subtropical jungle that is home to over 2000 plant species, 400 bird species, and many other animal species typical of these forests.

Buenos Aires, Argentina’s busy metropolis, will be our final destination on our journey. Combining its colonial history with neoclassical buildings, interesting restaurants for incredible gastronomical experiences, grab a “mate” (Argentina’s traditional drink) and get lost on its cobblestone streets, and who knows, you may wind up learning authentic Argentinian tango by local dancers.

This trip to Argentina will be an exceptional experience, introducing you to the incredible lifestyle and scenery that will fascinate you. Our bespoke itinerary is meticulously crafted to provide you with a genuine experience that you will love and remember for the rest of your life.
