BEST OF ARGENTINA
Cultural tour of Argentina

Our tour starts in Argentina's vibrant, wonderfully idiosyncratic capital, Buenos Aires. The city is famous for its tango, football and European-style architecture, picturesque cobbled neighbourhoods, sophisticated shopping and some of the best and most varied cuisine in the whole continent. We then head to the end-of-the-world archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, to explore Tierra del Fuego National Park and the world’s southernmost city, Ushuaia. Our tour concludes in windswept Patagonia visiting Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park, famous for the immense Perito Moreno Glacier.

The tour goes onto the district San Telmo. Until 1888 this part of the city was a river port, today San Telmo is one of the most modern and desired places to live in Buenos Aires. The worker district La Boca is famous for its colourful tin-houses and its history as living district of Italian seamen and dock workers in the 19th century.

Day 04: Ushuaia

In the morning you will go on a half day tour to the Tierra del Fuego National Park, where you will get the impression as if time goes slower than anywhere else.  The long stormy winters and the width of the sky formed a very simple and modest way of living.

Day 06: Calafate

Today we will be going on a full day tour to the Perito Moreno Glacier. After a drive through the National Park Los Glaciares one arrive all of a sudden in a forest full of colours, before one sees - equally unexpected - the glacier Perito Moreno. This is one of the few glaciers that are still growing. Every 4 to 5 years it covers the gap between the mainland and itself and grows into the Lago Argentino. Eventually the ice cannot resist the enormous pressure of the water and crashes with a frightening noise. One can watch this glacier spectacle every day when single ice blocks fall into the lake. Considering that the glacier is 5 km long and 70 m high one can imagine the noise this makes. Here we will have 2 hours to experience the glacier before driving back to Calafate. (B)
