A trip to Buenos Aires and Patag­o­nia

Ex­plore ur­ban won­ders and match­less wilder­ness with the ex­perts at Eva­neos

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - Contents -

A rgentina is a coun­try as var­ied as it is long, span­ning from the dry, rocky north, via the rhyth­mic bus­tle of the cap­i­tal and on past lush grass­lands and lakes to the pris­tine beauty of Patag­o­nia. To truly see what it has to of­fer, you need a lo­cal’s view­point, which is why tour op­er­a­tor Eva­neos has put to­gether a ten-day itin­er­ary with its lo­cally based ex­perts. And best of all, they’re of­fer­ing you the chance to sam­ple it for your­self.

A rhyth­mic en­counter

Start in buzzing Buenos Aires. Ex­plore Caminito Street, an area so en­twined with the city’s mu­si­cal her­itage it’s even named after a song by Car­los Gardel, the king of the tango; ban­doneón play­ers sound­track your ev­ery step as you ex­plore this colour­ful dis­trict. Then make for the an­tique shops of boho San Telmo and the im­pres­sive tombs at La Reco­leta.

Next, some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent: the un­tamed wilder­ness of Patag­o­nia. English-speak­ing guides will take you to the frozen glory of Per­ito Moreno Glacier and Los Gla­cia­res Na­tional Park, where mon­tane for­est, sweep­ing steppe, sparkling lakes and the largest ice cap out­side Green­land await. Pic­nic in the shadow of Mount Fitz Roy (3,395m) as the mist from your breath min­gles with the clouds.

Fly on to Ushuaia, in the deep south, to fin­ish at the ‘end of the world’. Lo­cal guides will help you dive into its wilder­ness, whether hik­ing and ca­noe­ing amid the forests, falls and la­goons of Tierra del Fuego NP or boat­ing into the Bea­gle Chan­nel to look for sea lions. This is the side of Ar­gentina few see with­out spe­cial­ist help, and a fit­ting end to a unique trip.
