An Argentina Adventure


Argentina runs half of the length of South America and it’s as varied in topography, activities and culture as you'd expect for its size. In the far North, Iguazu Falls and the Ibera Marsh offer lush, tropical landscapes and incredible birding and unique wildlife experiences (try your hand at spotting a caiman or a capybara). Mendoza is one of the premier wine regions in the World, home to the Malbec and luxury wine lodges and small family-owned posadas (link). Buenos Aires is a city that never sleeps. Visitors are often spell-bound by the vibrant street scenes, impromptu tango shows, flea markets, historic avenues and parks. While Argentina has had its share of economic and political challenges over the years, visitors to Buenos Aires find the city and its residents welcoming, and its neighborhoods lively and with a particular Europe-meets-Latin flair. In central Argentina we explore emerald lakes and densely forested mountains. Not unlike the Pacific Northwest, the Argentine Lake's District is ideal for hiking, boating, fly fishing and simply relaxing and soaking up the stunning vistas. The resplendent Llao Llao Hotel & Resort is one of our top picks, as is the intimate Las Balsas Lodge. Heading South, Argentina becomes wild and open big-sky country. One of our favorite areas is Chubut, home to the unique and remote Bahia Bustamante and the Peninsula Valdes, with some of the region's most impressive game viewing. It's hard to deny an ancient connection between Patagonia and Africa, especially when considering the wildlife. The Patagonian rhea, a small ostrich-like bird, inhabits the Peninsula, as well as the armadillo (echoes of a pangolin) and the camelid guanaco. Let's not forget Southern Right whales, Orcas, sea lions, elephant seals and one of the Southern Hemisphere's largest breeding colonies of penguins. The area also boasts a rich history in paleontology and offers travelers a well-curated dinosaur museum and a dig site. Here, accommodations are in family-owned, albeit luxurious estancias (farms). Venturing deeper into Patagonia, the landscape becomes more dramatic, glaciers lace the mountains and the condors soar overhead. Horseback riding under the leadership of local gauchos, hiking with crampons across expansive glaciers and experiencing the local culture at barbecues...African Safari Co & Expeditions travelers come home from Patagonia raving about their adventures, the guides and warm Argentinian hospitality.


An Argentina Adventure


At the Bottom of the World sits Ushuaia,, a bustling frontier town. Often overlooked by adventurers as it is the departure point for Antarctica expeditions, but delving a bit deeper reveals a wilderness playground and some of the country's best trekking, bird watching and adventure activities such as canoeing, kayaking and 4x4 tours. Many of Our tours in Argentina include a three-night stay in Ushuaia, where travelers have ample time to explore the national parks by Land Rover, with Expert local guides complete with gourmet picnic lunches featuring regional wines. Magellanic woodpecker, penguins, fox and controversial beaver await. From Ushuaia return to Buenos Aires and home or connect to Chile via the Australis ships.
