Travel guide

In the footsteps of explorers.

This country, almost at the end of the world, at the crossroads of millennia-old glaciers and in the footsteps of explorers, will not fail to amaze you with its landscapes.

Argentina shares its northern border with Brazil and Paraguay, where the famous Iguazu Falls are located. Majestic, impressive, like amazons of nature!

The Andes will be the setting for some of your most beautiful hikes, and will bear witness to a splendid biodiversity that is still preserved. Meet the locals, sit down and chat over a maté, a typical local drink.

The less adventurous will appreciate the crazy atmosphere of Buenos Aires, where you’re sure to start your journey to the sound of Argentine tango in a milonga…
