Argentina

ARGENTINA

“Argentina

Even though the country takes up most of the southern half of South America, you will hear Argentinians joke that their country is “the most American of the European countries,” for the strong European influence that can be seen in every aspect of life. From the capital’s neoclassical architecture, replete with colonial-style cobblestone streets; to Argentina’s passionate and raw Castilian Spanish; to its refined, proud culture.
But take a trip outside the main cities and you’ll find yourself in the epitome of South America. The jagged snow-capped peaks and high planes of the Andes, the stunning landscape of the Patagonian steppe and pampas, the glaciers at the end of the world in Tierra del Fuego, and the tropical rainforest in the north all come together in one country to create the quintessential South America experience. There are very few places in the world where you can see spider monkeys in the rainforest canopy, and penguins waddling along in icy archipelagoes all in the same country. Whether you seek world-class cuisine, awe-inspiring natural landscapes, or excellent conversation in Spanish, Argentina has plenty to satisfy every kind of traveler.

  • The trip was tremendously well put together. The restaurants were appetizing and savoring to the mouth. The excursions were quite amusing along with the crafty hotels which put us to bed nice and sound. The rafting and zip-lining was impressive to say the least. I'll never forget the fantastic home stay memories either. Thanks Walking Tree to a fabulous trip in Costa Rica.
