Itinerary

Day 1 - 2 Arrival in Argentina, stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, the city of Tango, Maradonna and Evita Perón! Buenos Aires is also known as the Paris of South-America. It is a city with more than 13 million inhabitants spread over 40 different neighborhoods, the so-called ´barrios´, which all have their own character. From the 19th century, a big stream of immigrants came mainly from Italy and Spain and you can still find the influence of these countries in the neighborhoods where the immigrants settled and established themselves.

In the neighborhood of La Boca, for example, you come across the rich Italian culture of its inhabitants. With its colorful houses, it resembles a neighborhood in Genoa.

San Telmo is the most bohemian neighborhood of Buenos Aires where you can find the real Argentinean culture with tango dancing in the streets, traditional eateries, and many antique stores.

Recoleta is since decades the most prestigious neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Its old buildings are a representation of European architecture from the last century and it is known for its fine restaurants and famous cemetery.

Palermo is the trendy upcoming neighborhood with the hippest restaurants and bars, its many designer and vintage shops and grand green parks.

This landscape combines the magic of glaciers, hidden lagoons, estancias, Lake Viedma, and the magnetic presence of mount Fitz Roy. The summit of its unmistakable majestic silhouette is almost always covered in a cloud that the Tehuelche Indians thought was smoke, a mistake that gave origin to the name ´Chaltén´, which means volcano.

Most outings start in town, and it is not necessary to be an expert to follow the circuits if you walk on a current trail.
