Start Your Trip In Mendoza

Many small group tours of South America start in Mendoza, Argentina, including Gondwana’s Argentina trip. Here is a sampling of some of the experiences you will encounter on this Argentinian adventure:

  • Start your tour of Mendoza, Argentina’s Wine Country, by exploring a variety of local wineries. Learn about the grape-growing process and the techniques of cultivation from experts, and enjoy the region’s specialty – Malbec!
  • Enjoy the local cuisine of Mendoza. Argentina is a top cattle-producing nation, and Asado is an Argentinian specialty. Asado, or local barbeque, is more than just a meal in Argentina – it’s a tradition. Of course, nothing pairs better with a good, local meal than a good, local wine.
  • Explore Argentina’s culture by dancing the night away or setting your inner cowboy free to run across the pampas. Argentina is the birthplace of Tango, and there’s no better place to learn how to dance this traditional dance than Mendoza. And if the romance and mystery of the gaucho intrigue you, the many Estancias located near Mendoza are the perfect place to discover the history of this famous folk symbol.
  • Marvel at the heights of Aconcagua, the highest mountain peak outside of Asia. Standing 22,837 feet high, this is one sight you cannot miss. Travel along the Rio Mendoza and over the famous Bridge of the Incas to walk the foothills of Aconcagua and take in the spectacular views.

Get Lost In Patagonia’s Spectacular Landscape

Patagonia is one of the last true wilderness regions on the planet. This vast area covers 260,000 square miles of South America and encompasses Argentina and Chile. Patagonia is known for its majestic mountain ranges, spectacular glaciers, and unique wildlife. It is also a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, especially hikers, who swarm the region each year to trek the many trails that pass through this dramatic landscape. Your small group tour of South America will include these Patagonian highlights:

  • Visit Los Glaciares National Park. This park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to the Perito Moreno glacier. This glacier towers 196 feet above the waters of Lake Argentina and is one of the few in the world that is still growing. Explore the glacier with your Gondwana guide by trekking across its icy face!
  • Explore the mountain village of El Chalten. This tiny village sits on the bank of Rio de las Vueltas, within Los Glaciares National Park. The town is a great spot for outdoor enthusiasts, with activities like rock climbing and trekking happening year-round. From El Chalten, you can follow a trail to the base of Mount Fitz Roy. This 11-mile hike will reward you with a spectacular, yet familiar, view – Mount Fitz Roy is easily recognizable as the mountain used by the Patagonia clothing brand.
  • Travel to the End of the World. Ushuaia, or el Fin del Mundo, is located on the southernmost tip of Patagonia. The town sits on an island in the Tierra del Fuego archipelago and is known as “the gateway to Antarctica.” Enjoy hiking, skiing, dining, penguin viewing, and views of the nearby mountains during your time in Ushuaia.
  • Go wildlife viewing in Patagonia. Argentina is the perfect place for animal lovers. If wildlife viewing is on your bucket list, you can plan on seeing capybaras, jaguars, flamingoes, and penguins, just to name a few. The vast wilderness of Patagonia is also home to South America’s famous guanaco, a relative to both the camel and llama.
