Argentina - Travel tips

With its breathtaking landscapes, its large urban centers and the testimonies of the colonial era, Argentina is a country absolutely worth visiting.

Those who go on a tour of Argentina have the opportunity to explore the icy peaks of Patagonia, the desolate "pampas" where the myth of the gaucho developed, but also the lively and colorful "barrios" of Buenos Aires, getting lost in the local shops, full of craft items, or among the bars and restaurants that offer delicious local cuisine, including steak churrasco, albóndigas and chorizos. The advantage of traveling accompanied by a local expert is undoubtedly that of exploring the places where the locals go: your guide will advise you where to go to taste the best dishes, surrounded by the warmth and vibrancy of the Argentines.

In the evening the big cities come alive with the magnificent local shows in the main squares - do not miss the sensual tango challenges!  But if you are looking for an adventure tour in contact with nature instead, Argentina will not let you down either. From the icy landscapes of Tierra del Fuego with the Ushuaia glacier, to the world-famous Iguazu Falls, Argentina is really a triumph of nature.

Finally, this country will impress even those who are looking for peace and quiet, thanks to its long coastline, where you can relax, and the sea that allows you to practice any kind of water sport.

  • The Argentinian tango

    Tango is a musical genre and dance from Rio de la Plata region. It originated in Argentina and Uruguay and includes music, dance and lyrics. The Argentine musician Enrique Santos Discepolo defined tango as "a sad thought that is danced." When travelers visit Argentina one of the main attractions that they normally want to see are the tango shows. Famous for its elegant and sensual movements, tango is a genre that is based on improvisation, where the basic step is the normal pace of the walk and the basic dance position is an asymmetric embrace between man and woman. Improvisation in tango is based on a simple rule: the man leads and the woman follows him. According to the music rhythm used, there are three varieties of tango: the real tango, with a time of four or two quarters, the Milonga, with a time of two quarters and the Tango Vals, with a three-quarter time.

Why visit Argentina

Argentina is a land of breathtaking scenery and rich in contrasts. Visitors are attracted both by its natural gems, including Patagonia, the Iguazu Falls and El Palmar National Park, and by the charm of its cities, like the capital Buenos Aires, a major center of culture. An elegant city, refined and with a European atmosphere, Buenos Aires is a metropolis where people from different backgrounds and cultures mingle, but also where you can still breathe the traditions of the country, first of all those of music and the tango.

Argentina boasts twenty-two national parks, established in order to protect an environment that is home to unique species in the world, like the cayman, the puma and the mara but also thorny undergrowth, rain forests and flowering cacti. From an architectural point of view, however, this country has many beautiful monuments from the colonial period that developed around the seventeenth century. It's a mountainous country in the west, where there are the highest peaks of the continent, such as the Aconcagua, and flat in the east, where the plains of the pampas (where the myth of the gaucho developed) represent a source of primary economic importance for agriculture. It is also characterized by numerous rivers and very wide coastal areas.

Because of the extent of its lands, the climate in Argentina is very heterogeneous. In the north summers are typically hot, humid and dry, with mild winters, while the southern regions have subpolar extremes, characterized by cool summers and cold winters with heavy snowfall.

Because of the sixteenth century colonization process, and following the strong wave of immigration from the seventies of the nineteenth century to the dawn of World War I, the Argentine population is characterized mostly by Europeans, especially Spaniards, who influenced the language of the natives, and Italians.

The country's economy is mainly based on the primary sector, thanks to an abundance of natural resources, such as oil and gas and a well-developed agricultural system. In addition, the tourism industry is an important resource for the country's economy.

Following the advice of our local experts, you can create your own tailor-made tour across this almost legendary land quickly and easily. They will suggest what to see and where to go to breathe the local atmosphere: your trip to Argentina is sure to be unforgettable.
