Reasons to Visit
Argentina’s history of agriculture and in particular of rearing livestock has resulted in hundreds of estancias, or ranches, across the country that open their doors year round to visitors looking for a taste of the authentic cowboy life.
Straddling the Argentina and Brazil border it is the Argentine side that provides the opportunity for the detailed and close up views of some of the 276 waterfalls that make up Iguazú. The numerous vantage points and forested trails make for a wonderful experience of nature at her best.

Each year between June and November the Southern Right Whales pass the Valdes peninsula offering spectacular opportunities to get close to these magnificent giants.
Some of the world’s most breathtaking glaciers have their home in Argentine Patagonia. They include the mighty Perito Moreno Glacier, 250 square kilometres in size, and the Upsala Glacier, rapidly retreating from Lake Argentino.
Argentina produces some of the world's best wines. For those with an interest in the wine making process we can offer excellent tours of large and small wineries around the city of Mendoza, or take you to more off the beaten track wineries high in the Andes around the northern town of Cafayate.
The Argentine tango originated in the working class quarters of Buenos Aires, brought to life by European immigrants whose diverse instruments, rhythms and steps came together to create what is today an enchanting and hypnotic dance enjoyed across the country.
