Highlights of Argentina
Welcome to Patagonia – where the sophistication of European culture meets the wilderness of New Zealand or Alaska. Argentina in general, and Patagonia in particular, have long held captive travellers’ imaginations, from the tango to the estancia. Wide open spaces populated with very few, but very stylish, and hard-working people mark the distances. The rugged mountain wilderness and the fine dining (excellent beef, lamb, smoked fish, chocolate, and of course, red wine!) set Patagonia apart from all other destinations in Latin America. Here, the people have been truly shaped by the astounding beauty of the land. This is a land of elegant extremes. Our two-week itinerary is well-paced and comfortable, combining a chance to see all the main sights and also to enjoy some free time to relax and soak in the views. Making the most of summer
in the Southern Hemisphere, the
weather will be mild and the days long. We’ll see the best of both Northern and Southern Patagonia.
