  • Europe of South America – Argentina

    Often called the “Europe of South America”, Argentina and, in particular it’s capital city of Buenos Aires, is unique among the South American countries due to its political history and geographical location away from the jungles of the Amazon. Famous for its tango, gauchos, pampas and yerba mate, (among other things, of course) Argentina has something to offer for both the city and country – minded traveller. You can dance the night away in a club or ride off into the horizon on horseback.
