Argentina Tours

Argentina tours: The allure of Argentina is strong. From the passionate tango performances in cafes across the capital city of Buenos Aires, to the icy peaks in Ushuaia, Argentina tours offer a surprising amount of variety.

Found at the bottom of South America, Argentina is the second largest country in the region. A 3,300 mile border runs along the western flanks of Argentina, separating the country from Chile. The border, which was created to follow the natural continental divides created with the Andes mountain range, zig zags across enormous icefields, vast plains, incredibly tall peaks, and stunning blue lakes.

To the northeast, the 760 mile border between Argentina and Brazil is most spectacular...   Read More

Name:
Andres Fernandez

EDUCATION:
Communication and Psychology.

LANGUAGE:
English, Spanish and French (after living in Belgium for 5 years).

TOURS LED:
Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Cuba, Poland, the Baltic States, Portugal, Spain and Morocco.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
I love travelling in Central America. The natural history is astounding, all the birds, mammals, flora and fauna! As a certified diver and avid sportsman, the area offers many opportunities for diving, kayaking and rafting.

ABOUT:
Growing up in an international environment allowed me to interact with people from different cultures and learn from them. I would say that's when I became a traveler...

To me, traveling is not only about the sites and highlights of a destination, it's mostly about the people and their history, about how they solve things. It's about their lives!

Name:
Martin Charlton

EDUCATION:
Bachelor's Degree in Geography; further studies in Archaeology & Anthropology. Life's real education happens outside the classroom.

LANGUAGE:
English and some French & Spanish.

TOURS LED:
Having led tours for Adventures Abroad for almost 25 years, there are few corners of the globe where Martin’s left a stone unturned: everywhere from North Korea to Nauru, Saudi Arabia to Sudan, Guinea-Bissau to French Guiana. With over 200 tours through over 125 countries under his belt, it might be faster to list the regions where he hasn’t led a tour.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
"My love of travel and infectious enthusiasm for different cultures has taken me to over 155 countries. The further off the beaten path, the better. For a favourite place: perhaps South Georgia Island, the Canadian Arctic, or Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. World's best city = Istanbul!"

ABOUT:
"Don't pack anything that you would be upset to lose, that needs to be ironed, or is encased in glass." - words to live by.

Name:
Jonathan Hodgson

EDUCATION:
BA in Psychology at McGill University; MBA at the University of British Columbia; self-educated passion for history and culture.

LANGUAGE:
English; conversational French; improving Spanish and Russian. And a decent Scottish accent.

TOURS LED:
I have led tours in over 100 countries over the last 14 years of working for Adventures Abroad on all of the continents except for Antarctica.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Where to begin? Each place has something that makes it a special destination. A few that spring to mind: Kaieteur Falls in Guyana; the snow-covered mountains of Ladakh, India; sipping tea in a chaikhana of the old town of Bukhara, Uzbekistan; and watching the changing colours of Uluru (Ayers Rock) at sunset.

ABOUT:
Jonathan has lived much of his life dedicated to the idea that he would rather have a wealth of experiences than a wealth of riches. Having taken up a nomadic lifestyle shortly after finishing his undergraduate degree, he has been on the move on and off over the last 25+ years. The wanderlust has taken him to basing himself in places such as Scotland, Australia and Uzbekistan, and to visiting many more locations around our planet. Now (sort of) settled in Vancouver with his wonderful (and patient) family, he still loves the idea of having the world as his office and always enjoys trying to capture the essence of the locations he travels and tours in with his photography.

Name:
Victor Romagnoli

EDUCATION:
HBA English BA History

LANGUAGE:
Being able to speak several languages has made travelling an enriching experience; the conversations one can so easily slip into with locals - who come from all walks of life - adds greatly to my feel for a place.

TOURS LED:
Over a span of almost 30 years, I have lead tours virtually all over the globe.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Some of my favourite tours just come into being suddenly as a result of a request; someone will ask me to put together an itinerary that will include the highlights of several countries and the next thing you know we have, for example, a tour to Uruguay, Paraguay & Bolivia, or Lesotho, Namibia & Botswana. Sometimes I will be asked to arrange a detailed itinerary to just one region within a country - like a close up look at Sicily or Crete or the Basque Country or Newfoundland. Without the keen curiosity that so many of you travellers have, none of these "spontaneous" tours would come into being. But they do.

ABOUT:
I love the excitement of getting up each morning on a tour and not knowing exactly how a day will unfold. It keeps me on my toes so to speak, and adds a breath of excitement to each day on tour. With almost 30 years of tour leading under my belt, I thank all of you for being a part of this exciting journey.

Argentina tours: The allure of Argentina is strong. From the passionate tango performances in cafes across the capital city of Buenos Aires, to the icy peaks in Ushuaia, Argentina tours offer a surprising amount of variety.

Found at the bottom of South America, Argentina is the second largest country in the region. A 3,300 mile border runs along the western flanks of Argentina, separating the country from Chile. The border, which was created to follow the natural continental divides created with the Andes mountain range, zig zags across enormous icefields, vast plains, incredibly tall peaks, and stunning blue lakes.

To the northeast, the 760 mile border between Argentina and Brazil is most spectacular at Iguazu Falls. Over 275 waterfalls spill over the Parana plateau to create a 1.7 mile long collection of falls. A vast network of walkways allow visitors to stand below or above the falls, including the largest Devil's Throat falls.

Down river, Paraguay's border with Argentina begins at the confluence of the Iguacu and Parana Rivers on a triple frontier with Brazil, whereas the Paraguay and Uruguay borders are also beautiful, albeit less dramatic.

People have lived in Argentina for thousands of years, as evident by the Cave of Hands in the Santa Cruz province. Many tribes flourished in hunter gatherer lifestyles, and many were noted to have left great impressions on European explorers including Ferdinand Magellan, Francis Drake, and Charles Darwin. Unfortunately, for most natives in Argentina the arrival of Europeans only meant disaster for their way of life. Disease and wars, in effort to expand immigrant ranching, took a massive effect on the people, with many tribes today being extinct or near to it.

The Spanish arrived at the start of the 16th century and the long lasting impressions of their arrival can still be felt. Spanish is the lingua franca, and in the cities one can enjoy the impressive colonial architecture of Buenos Aires or Cordoba. With the import of European peoples, so too came European religions. Missionaries in the Mendoza region also brought along a passion for wine. Originally being introduced as a way to create wine for church services, the Mendoza wine region has become world famous due to its production of Malbec in a perfect climate just east of the Andes mountains.

Most of Argentina was initially settled as an area for ranching, and the guacho (or rancher) tradition lives strong with the production of grass fed beef and soft wool. Guanacos and pumas roam with cattle and sheep in the Patagonia steppes that have turned into the farm lands. The backdrop of these magnificent plains is the sprawling mountains of the Andes.

On our Argentina tours, it is possible to explore the most famous facets of Argentina's landscape. Get up close to the icefields of Los Glaciares National Park, including the Perito Moreno Glacier or a cruise to Upsala Glacier on Lago Argentino. At the bottom of the world, depart from Ushuaia, the southernmost city on Tierra del Fuego until you are face to face with Magellanic penguins in the Beagle Channel.

Wherever you find yourself on Argentina tours, it will surely be scenic.
