Best of Argentina 3 weeks

Within 3 weeks you will discover the North and South of Argentina. A diverse tour where you'll enjoy the cultural life of Buenos Aires, the mountains and glaciers in El Calafate, hiking in El Chaltén, the incredible landscapes and culture in Salta and Jujuy, and finally the subtropical jungle of Iguazu Falls. 

This trip includes in Buenos Aires two different tours: one to the north and another one to the south of the city. In both of them you will not just learn about the history of the city, but also you will go over the different neighbourhoods like a local. Also, instead of going to a traditional tango show, you will go to an authentic milonga (where locals go to dance tango).

In Calafate, you will have 2 nontraditional tours, so that you can see much more than the glacier: a 4×4 excursion to the Fosiles Canyon, an archeological site where the natives lived hundreds of years ago and a patagonic dinner in a cave that you won’t forget.
