There’s food and fashion in Buenos Aires, dazzling landscapes in the rugged north-west, vineyards in the shadow of soaring Andean peaks, dramatic windswept plains and glaciers in Patagonia, jungle surprises aside the tumbling waters of Iguazu Falls and the emerald waters and alpine surrounds of the Lake District. There’s the rough, yet romantic, gaucho culture, the sultry elegance of the tango, imposing monuments and museums and above all, an exotic and fun-loving people. You can follow your own passion with A&K’s office in Argentina. An expert is always on hand to deliver a customised travel experience - why not try a private tango lesson with a professional, a polo demonstration at a local estancia or a meal in the home of a leading Porteño chef? With A&K’s industry contacts, access can even be arranged to the very balcony from which Evita spoke to her adoring people. Whatever you choose, you’ll soon feel like a local yourself.
