Engage in your own unique combination of opportunities while traveling through and settling into Argentina.
Environment & Nature
Argentina is a land of stunning biodiversity. From pumas to penguins, toucans to boa constrictors, the lush subtropical rainforests, the central pampas, or grasslands, and the cold glacial landscapes of the south are teaming with wildlife.
Take a deep dive into nature by exploring one of Argentina’s 30 national parks, which include Tierra del Fuego National Park, which features subantarctic forest, glaciers and the “end of the world train,” the world’s southernmost functioning railway. Visit a local university and chat with scientists and engineers about how climate change is affecting Argentina and how best to respond.
In Argentina, the possibilities are as endless as the geography is diverse.
HISTORY & CULTURE
Argentina is a multicultural country which has been influenced by both rich indigenous traditions and a long history of immigration. A former Spanish colony, its ethnically diverse population has roots in Spain, Italy, and other parts of Europe, as well as Africa.
This impressive cultural mix has led to a great flourishing of the arts and culture throughout Argentina’s modern history. The country has produced generations of talented artists in fields ranging from theater to literature to architecture.
Explore iconic landmarks like the Metropolitan Cathedral, learn about the traditional lifestyle of Argentinian gauchos, or cowboys, while visiting a ranch, feast on traditional cuisine at a local bodegones restaurant and visit a soccer stadium to understand the outsized role of this sport in Argentinian society.
music & Dance
Like its birthplace, Argentina, the tango represents a rich mix of cultural influences, taking inspiration from African, Native American and European dances. Try your hand at this elegant and dynamic artform by taking part in a tango class in Buenos Aires where this style of dance originated.
Considered to have the best acoustics for opera in the world, the Colon Opera House has hosted a veritable who’s who list of classical music’s most iconic performers. Embark on a behind-the-scenes tour and discover this cultural gem for yourself.
