Argentina tours

Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world, and the second largest in South America after Brazil. It has borders with Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay, and as such is a popular hub for multi-country tours in the region. The southern city of Ushuaia is also the main starting point for Antarctic cruises. The first language is Spanish, but English is widely spoken too.

Because the country is so large, and stretches from the Southern Ocean right up to the heights of the Andes, there are a huge variety of environments and different landscapes to discover. These include several of the world's most spectacular locations for adventure travel, such as the Perito Moreno Glacier, Torres del Paine National Park, and Los Glaciares National Park, in Patagonia. The Andes mountains are popular for trekking, skiiing, and climbing. On the border with Brazil you also find the Iguazu Falls, among the largest in the world, with the various sections stretching over 2 and a half kilometres.

The wildlife in Argentina is also extremely varied. On the coastline you can see sea lions, seals, penguins, whales and dolphins, with boat trips and cruises available to get up close. In the Ibera Wetlands (the second largest wetlands in the world after Brazil's Pantanal), there are capybaras, giant otters, alligators and numerous species of birds. The central grassy plains, or pampas, are packed with farms with cows, sheep and horses. Then, in the Andean mountains and foothills, there are llamas, alpacas, tapirs, monkeys, porcupines, and a few jaguar, to name but a few.

Argentina is also rightly reknowned for its food and drink, with Argentine beef and red wine in particular famous around the world. The Mendoza wine producing region makes perhaps the best wines in Argentina, and is one of the largest producing areas in the world, with the Andes mountains forming a beautiful backdrop to the vineyards.

I thought it was very good we didn't have to worry about anything everything was in order and kept with the schedule as planned, unless we wanted to deviated from it to do somethingelse. The trip really a trip of a life time.
There was a time many years ago that I wanted to travel to Egypt and didn't because of the cost. This trip was, to me, very affordable. I think everyone should experience this trip. The tour guide was alos excellent, Sherif Mohammad.

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.

Anthony has been a pleasure to work with and when he is not available, other members of the team respond in a timely manner. I have booked a total of 6 trips since December 2013 and plan to book more to fill my bucket list.

Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....
