Argentina

If countries could walk, Argentina would swagger. Covering an area of over a million square miles, it encompasses the richness and diversity of an entire continent.

From the elegant boulevards, tango halls, cafes and boutiques of Buenos Aires, Argentina unfolds through thousands of miles of flat pampa into the rolling sierras of Cordoba and the vineyards of Mendoza before soaring into the Andes – the country´s natural border with Chile.

To the north, cactus forests and lunar landscapes give way to subtropical jungle, wetlands and waterfalls.

To the south, Patagonia, one of the great unspoilt wildernesses of the world, embraces snow-capped peaks and crystalline lakes, immense glaciers and the windswept steppe of Tierra del Fuego.

  • We are still luxuriating in the memories of our wonderful trip. Next year (2012) we are going to Africa, and I was thinking of riding in Botswana - is there anyone like you operating over there, who could arrange a glorious week?
