7 Days ARGENTINA
Argentina is the second largest country in South America and a captivating land of tango, adventure and breathtaking nature.
Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and the most European city in South America, with buildings that are reminiscent of bygone times. The mighty Plaza De Mayo is the historic heart of the city, along with the presidential palace, the Casa Rosada and the Catedral Metropolitana.
Today, the tango is performed in each corner of the city and in the nineteenth century, poor immigrants from Italy and Spain settled in Buenos Aires. This explains the fiery temperament and deep melancholy that is expressed by the dances and is evident with each flick of the leg. In what was once the red light district with its whore houses of colorful corrugated iron taken from numerous ship wrecks, the tango was born.
We visit an estanzia, a feudal residence of the beef barons who once settled on the endless plains of the pampas and who built their farmhouses according to the rustic designs of the nobility.
From Salta Station we begin a fascinating train journey on the Tren A Las Nubes, the "train into the clouds", which will climb to more than three thousand metres above sea level along one of the highest railroads in the world.
The Los Glaciares National Park is a mixture of lakes, glaciers, mountains and untouched wilderness yet, despite the harsh climate, the local vegetation captivates due to its diversity.
Our journey comes to an end. From north to south, through cities and pampas to glaciers and mountains, Argentina is a dream destination come true!
