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.

  • When our daughter approached us about wanting to do this trip we had so many apprehensions as parents. (Her only apprehensions were food and bugs!). Paul Laurie was marvelous in spending time discussing all my concerns during a long phone conversation. Sarah has just returned from her trip & had the most amazing time!! Not knowing anyone quickly translformed into making new friends unlike any experience she has had. Her time spent with her host family was absolutely a life changing experience.. The arena built for the village by the group leaves a lasting physical & emotional impression for everyone. Kudos to the numerous videos produced & posted for their trip! I have tremendous respect for Walking Tree, and the way this trip opened my daughter's eyes like no other trip has ever done for her before.
