Buenos Aires is a vibrant city, known for its art, culture, nightlife and friendly citizens. You get the impression of strolling through a European city and that’s where the name: “Paris of South America” has its origin: whine, tango, belle époque are omnipresent. Its South America’s most populated city after Sao Paulo and its port is one of the continent’s most important. The inhabitants or “Portenos” are mostly of Spanish and Italian origin and they are off course convinced they have the best football team in the world. Buenos Aires has a humid sub tropical climate and has 4 well defined seasons with temperatures ranging anywhere from 8C to 30C.

Ushuaia: At 50º south latitude, the last great frontier of the continent. Here ends the great Pan-American route that connects Tierra de Fuego with Alaska. Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world, the gateway to Antarctica. At the bottom of the fjord and sheltered from the fury of Magallanes, its lights stand out against the landscape of southern mountains. Brave, young and obstinate, Ushuaia has streets that are full of life in the evenings, shop windows -of electronics, outdoor- with irresistible prices; bookstores to immerse yourself in fantastic worlds; Warm bars and sophisticated restaurants.

El Calafate lies in the Southwestern tip of Patagonia close to the Chilean border. The little village is located on the banks of the gigantic lake Argentino, in the bedding of what once was an enormous glacier covering the whole region. Today there are still remainders of this once enormous and some of them advance some 30 cm a day and all of them end their lives in the Lago Argentino, which gives us the opportunity to get close to these wonders of nature during our excursions. This is certainly an important visit since it confronts us directly with today’s climate change issues. El Calafate has steppe climate with cool to hot, dry summers and cool to very cold winters with very little precipitation the year through. Temperatures can reach -5C during European summers.
