 ARGENTINA


Argentina is a land of extremes and ready to be discovered. Located in the southern portion of South America it is bordered by Chile to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Uruguay, Bolivia, Paraguay and Brazil to the north and northeast. 
 

The Argentine Republic is a bi-continental country occupying part of America and a portion of Antarctica. With a vast area of 1,450,742 square miles (3,757,407 square kilometers, the country offers every variety of climate and landscape possible. From tropical heat, always rainy and full of colorful vegetation, to polar cold, with its soberly white look thanks to snow and ice.

 

Its busy urban centers contrast with a staggering remote hinterland. The country can be simultaneously hot in one region and cold in another. The one common thread is that the people possess a curiosity, passion and fervor for life - most visible when it comes to football, the national obsession. The Tango, gauchos and estancias are the country’s original attractions, but what strikes visitors most is that life here is for living: the fast pace only letting up for the afternoon siesta.


 

Argentina is cosmopolitan and modern. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Buenos Aires. Somewhat unfairly referred to as a grimy Paris, the city of Buenos Aires is a sophisticated capital brimming with character and an excellent spot for shopping and watching the world go by. Nightlife is spectacular and restaurants overspill with delectable dishes. You are just as likely to find businesspeople spending cash on the latest fashions as you are to find couples in passionate stages of tango.

 

Argentina’s natural history is really amazing. The country is so topographically diverse that there is something for everyone: every type of landscape can be found here. National parks teem with wildlife and mountainous vistas, while the colossal Perito Moreno Glacier and Iguassu Falls are natural wonders renowned worldwide. Horse riding, adventure sports and bird-watching are available throughout, and the Andes offer excellent skiing. Endless hiking opportunities are in the south, where Patagonia is stunningly barren and mystifying and the Tierra del Fuego feels like the end of the world. In short, Argentina has something to offer for everybody and is vastly unexplored and undiscovered by most tourists. Join us on an adventure that is waiting to happen.

 

Argentina is situated east of the Andes and has four main geographical areas: the Andes, the North and Mesopotamia, the Pampas and Patagonia  The climate and geography of Argentina vary considerably, ranging from the great heat of the Chaco (El Chaco), through the pleasant climate of the central Pampas to the sub-Antarctic cold of the Patagonian Sea. Mount Aconcagua soars almost 7000 meters (23,000 feet) and waterfalls at Iguassu stretch around a massive semi-circle, thundering 70 meters (230 feet) to the bed of the Paraná River. In the southwest is a small ’Switzerland’ with a string of beautiful icy lakes framed by mountains.
