Pre or Post Tour Options

A variety of optional 2-3 day tour programmes have been designed by the Congress Organisers to give participants further opportunities to explore Argentina, either prior to the Congress Tour or immediately after and will depart  and return to the city of Buenos Aires. The four options are:

  • EL CALAFATE – CITY OF THE GLACIERS – includes a full day tour to see Perito Moreno Glacier – the only one in Patagonia glacier basin that is not retreating, but staying in balance.  Afterwards enjoy the Safari Nautico, a boat ride along Rico Lake towards the Perito Moreno Glacier’s wall.
  • IGUASSU FALLS – ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL HIGHLIGHTS AND WONDERS OF ARGENTINA – Taller than Niagara Falls and twice as wide, this wonder combines 275 falls in a magnificent cascade stretching for nearly two miles. Includes a full day tour to see the Argentinean side of the Falls, including a gas propelled train to the “Devil’s Throat”.  A catwalk across several islands ends with a strategic lookout point over the Devil’s Throat.
  • MENDOZA, THE WINE COUNTRY – HOME OF MALBEC. With 156,000 hectares of vineyards, Mendoza makes up 68% of Argentina’s vineyards. Includes city tour of Mendoza, a visit to the summit of Cerro de la Gloria as well as the most important wineries of Mendoza including wine tasting.
  • USHUAIA – THE MOST SOUTHERN CITY IN THE WORLD – Ushuaia is circled by the Beagle Channel and the Magellan Strait, near to Drake Strait which separates the island from the north of the Argentine Antarctica. Includes a journey inside the Tierra del Fuego National Park travelling on “The End of the World Train”, travel by coach through followed by a cruise ship trip to the Beagle Channel to see the geography and wildlife of Tierra del Fuego.
