Argentina: Sophisticated & Inviting

Gorgeous landscapes, cosmopolitan cities and lively culture, Argentina is everyone’s paradise.

It stretches 3500 km from North to South and encompasses a wide array of geography and climates with a population of just 40 million people. With 40% of those people concentrated in Buenos Aires, the rest of the country offers beautiful vast, open spaces where one can indulge in natural, breathtaking landscapes.

Argentina is safe, friendly and more European than Europe itself with services and expenses at a fraction of the price. Today’s excellent values make its cultural traditions, gorgeous sceneries, cosmopolitan cities and quaint rural towns more attractive than ever.

Salta, the Beautiful: The Undiscovered North

One of Argentina’s oldest and picturesque colonial provinces, Salta is characterized by its intricate and well-preserved architecture, a perpetuated ancient culture, painted Andean deserts, verdant fertile valleys, snowy peaks and tropical rainforests.

Influenced by the ancient Incan Andean culture, the region is well-known for its handcrafts, fine wines, and its warm, friendly people. Despite its abundance of outstanding qualities, Salta is an undiscovered corner of Argentina where culture and values are still ever-present and passed on from generation to generation. Salta City is the gateway to the Calchaqui Valley, home of quaint Cafayate.

Cafayate: Land of Exquisite Beauty

Cafayate, nestled in the heart of the Calchaqui Valley is one of Argentina’s premium wine regions, best known for its outstanding Torrontes; which has contributed to making this area famous, in addition to its colonial charm, outstanding architecture and interesting landscape. Aside from the town’s many wineries “bodegas”, there is also an architecturally important cathedral, a vibrant plaza, a Museum of Wine and a 350 year-old working flour mill.

Set in the shadows of the Andean peaks, it is bordered by the spectacular swirls and undulations of desert dunes a stone’s throw from its acres of ordered, lush, vineyards. Taking a breath of the fresh high mountain air. The rhythm of life here is calm and tranquil and far enough from any city that it is easily realized. The best way to enjoy this region is to submit to its pace.
