We visit local projects such as “students for wildlife protection” in the Ibera region of Corrientes. For our fishing tours, we only work with providers that have a “catch and release” policy.

Endowed with a number of outstanding natural wonders and boasting one of the world’s most exciting cities, Argentina is a vast and varied land. Stretching from the Tropic of Capricorn towards the tip of Antarctica it possesses a staggering diversity of terrains, from the lush wetlands of the Litoral and the flat bone-dry Andean plateaux of the Northwest to the end-of-the-world archipelago of Tierra del Fuego. Its most famous landscapes are the lush flatlands of the Pampas and the dramatic steppe of Patagonia, whose very name evokes windswept plains inhabited by hardy pioneers.
Initially, Argentina may seem less “latino” than the rest of South America and the locals will tell you how influential Europe has been on their nation. Many say that Argentina is the most American of all European countries and the most European of all American countries, but it actually has a very special character all of its own, typified by its proud & defiant passion that is often illustrated in its obsession with football and its strange political alliances.
Buenos Aires, the most fascinating of all South American capitals, is one of Argentina’s top attractions. It’s a fascinating place to wander about, people-watching, shopping or watching the world go by. Its many neighborhoods’ are very different – some are decadently old-fashioned, others daringly modern – but all of them have a character of their own.
However, Argentina is probably most associated with is, the sheer size of the land and the diverse wildlife inhabiting it. From howler monkeys and toucans in northern jungles, to penguins and hump back whales in the South Atlantic, you will find it hard not to be amazed. Argentina also hosts hundreds of bird species – including the Andean condor and three varieties of flamingo – plus pumas, armadillos, llamas, foxes and tapirs that roam the country’s forests, mountainsides and altiplano. Lush tea plantations and parched salt-flats, palm groves and icebergs, plus the world’s mightiest waterfalls, are just some of the scenes that you will see.
Argentina – a friendly nation
Argentines are incredibly patient and friendly and you will be surprised at how far they will go out of their way to help you. Unlike other world capitals, if you need to ask for directions in Buenos Aires, do not hesitate to ask a local (porteno). He or she will only be too glad to help you and even more so if they realize you are a foreigner. It is also the passion of the Argentine people that makes them even more alluring, which you can see in every facet of life – boisterous dinners starting just before midnight, the love of dance, food, wine, and most of all football.
Whatever it is that brings you to Argentina there will be many reasons that will make you want to stay. Argentina is so much more than its obvious world-class sites. It is about the amazing experiences to be had and the incredible people that you will meet along the way. It is this combination of sites, experiences, people, and of course the food and drink that make Argentina one of the best destinations in the world to visit.
