“Argentina is one of the largest countries in the world—it is as long as the U.S. is wide—and it features some of the most famous regions in the world, like Patagonia, The Pampas and Tierra del Fuego,” says Jorge Cazenave, president of Cazenave Argentina. “Plus, we have the high Andes, Iguazu Falls and vast majestic landscapes, all with very few inhabitants.”
For first-time visitors, he recommends pairing a few days in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires—birthplace of the tango and home to A-list arts and cultural attractions, as well as a culinary scene that showcases the country’s noteworthy beef and wine—with visits to other regions of the country. A popular choice is diverse Patagonia, where travelers can see marine wildlife and enjoy the beaches along Argentina’s southern Atlantic Coast then head to the mountains of the interior for trekking, horseback tours and hiking to glacial lakes.
Cazenave says one of the advantages of working with his company is the high level of customization that’s available.
“We know every corner of the country, and we will make sure you get to see and experience what you want so that you will look forward to returning,” he says. “We have been offering our services to the American traveler for over 25 years, not only for large groups, but also for families, fishermen, mountain climbers, nature photographers and foodies.”
