Your Destinations

Buenos Aires

The City of Buenos Aires is the capital of the Argentine Republic and is located in the southern hemisphere. Including the metropolitan area, the total population of Buenos Aires is above ten million, making it one of the 10th most populated urban centres in the world. The Río de la Plata and the Riachuelo are the natural borders of the city on the east and south, respectively. The rest of the metropolitan perimeter is surrounded by the General Paz Avenue from north to west. This avenue provides a fast connection between the city and the Greater Buenos Aires, a densely populated area with important business and industrial activity. 

Buenos Aires is one of the most fascinating cities in both Latin America and the world. Be it for its splendid and varied architecture, with its old Colonial buildings, French palaces and state-of-the-art skyscrapers; for its vibrant nightlife and endless cultural options; or maybe just for the rich identity of the Porteños, who proudly bear the European heritage of their ancestors, more and more are coming to visit.

Ushuaia

Nicknamed the “End of the World”, Ushuaia is located on the Tierra del Fuego archipelago, at the southernmost tip of South America. This windswept town, surrounded by by the Martial Mountains and the Beagle Channel, is the gateway to to Antarctica cruises.

During your time here, uncover the beauty of the Tierra del Fuego National Park. The town itself offers a range of sights and excursion including a former prison, glacier tours, boat trips and skiing options. Wildlife is abundant in this region, so be sure to take some time to spot sea lions, penguins, dolphins, beavers, and amazing bird life while you’re here.

El Calafate

Located near the edge of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field in the Argentine province of Santa Cruz, El Calafate is is the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park. Uncover the beauty of Perito Moreno Glacier, an ever-shifting icy landscape popular for hiking and sightseeing. With an abundance of hiking trails, mountains to climb, lakes to paddle in and forests to roam around, this region offers spectacular scenery like no other.

In El Calafate, you may also visit the modern glacier museum to enjoy educational exhibits on glaciers, as well as delight in a refreshing drink at their Ice Bar. Be sure to venture to Cerro Frías for an epic view over Mount Fitz Roy, Torres del Paine, and Lago Argentino. Visitng a local Estancia is a highlight of El Calafate in addition to La Leona Petrified Forest which is a bit further out of time, but well worth a visit if you have the time!

Iguazu Falls

Uncover the beauty of Iguazu and its towering waterfalls! Located on the border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, this group of more than 200 waterfalls is a must-see in South America, and is recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Surrounded by lush nature, these falls make up the largest waterfall system in the world and are bound to surprise you.
