Take an adventure holiday in ARGENTINA with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.
EXPLORE: Argentina is the second largest country in South America and makes up most of southern half of the continent. The 2.8 million square kilometers is bordered by jungles in the north, the Andes mountain range to the west, the Pacific Ocean in the east and stretches south through the wide plains (pampas) to what many consider to be the end of the earth! Argentina’s 40 million people live throughout the country but are found mostly in urban centres like the capital Buenos Aires, or other bustling cities like Cordoba, Santa Fe and Mendoza.
EXPERIENCE: Argentina offers travellers the opportunity to visit the natural world wonder Iguazu Falls, to climb the spectacular Cerro Aconcagua, one of the Seven Summits, but also to explore less visited corners like the dramatic gorges in the Salta and Jujuy regions. Well known for the tango, Buenos Aires can also show us it’s Spanish and Italian history in the architecture and culture of many of the 48 barrios (neighborhoods). One of the most famous and unique is the colorful La Boca – built and painted with the materials leftover from the shipyards at the port.
WORLD EXPEDITIONS is your start for adventures in the vast and varied country of Argentina. Travel from the lush jungles in the north to the majestic Andes Mountains in Patagonia and gain an understanding of the friendly people and unique country they call home.
