Detailed Description

From breathtaking glaciers to the inspiring streets of its cities, Argentina is a country filled with magnificent nature and fascinating culture. This thirteen-day trip to Patagonia, Puerto Madryn, and Buenos Aires will showcase the highlights of both ends of the spectrum, giving you a glimpse into life in all corners of Argentina, from the banks of the Rio de la Plata to the trailing islands of Tierra del Fuego.

Your Argentina travel experience starts in Buenos Aires, where you’ll experience urban life in true Argentine style, from the dignified edifices near the Plaza de Mayo to the hectic vivacity of La Boca. Then head south to Patagonia, where you’ll witness the incredible power of this rugged terrain, where crystalline glaciers abut the boundless sky above, lined by the jagged rises of the Andes. Finally, you’ll visit the Chubut Province in northern Patagonia, where you’ll be thrilled by watching Southern Right Whales at Puerto Piramides and delighted by the mincing steps of Magellanic penguins at Punta Tombo.
