The land of opportunity
INTRODUCTION TO ARGENTINA
Argentum- the lands of silver, so named following the expedition of conquest by Juan Díaz de Solís. He navigated the Rio de La Plata at Buenos Aires in 1524 to unearth the riches of the New World. The voyage began and a new history of Argentina awaits you today as a seductive miscellany of immense cultural and natural riches. Buenos Aires exudes a bohemian existence with its tangoesque cultures, nestled among a backdrop of glorious European colonial architecture. In our modern world where time is your master Argentina banishes that modus operandi. Here you discard preconceptions and come to witness the intricacies of cultures engaging and living on their terms. All of this along with nature personified at the wild Las Pampas, Iguazu Falls, Patagonia – the last capes of exile, the lofty Andes Mountains and stupendous marine life at Puerto Madryn. Argentina bestows to visitors riches ad infinitum to live, grow and discover as never before.
Looking to unearth the riches of the new world, Spanish explorer Juan Díaz de Solís sailed to the shores of Argentina in 1524. Blessed with some of the world’s most valuable minerals, it wasn’t long before the country then known as ‘Argentum,’ meaning silver, became one of the richest in the world. By the 1800s, boats filled with wealthy European merchants from Italy, Spain, France, and Great Britain had sailed to Buenos Aires, hungry for their slice of the pie.
While the capital city has now become a prosperous Parisianesque paradise for both business and the arts, the farmlands of the vast Argentinian pampas remain rooted in its traditional gaucho culture. In Salta, northern Argentina, its roots go even deeper, back to the country’s rich Native American origins. From the Baroque architecture and business suits of Buenos Aires to the cowboy hats and homesteads of the pampas and the hand-embroidered shawls and adobe houses of Salta, Argentina is thought to be South America’s most diverse country.
Beyond the history and culture of Argentina is its extraordinary beauty. The arid northwest is defined by burnt sienna hills and valleys dotted with cacti, the midlands feature expansive pampas and sierras, and the southern region of Patagonia promises picturesque mountainscapes featuring glaciers, forests, and lakes that take the breath away. Many of its landscapes like Torres del Paine and the Perito Moreno glacier have captured the world’s attention with their magnificence, but none are more famous than the Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfall system on earth.
Between its incomprehensible beauty and charming mix of culture and history, there’s so much to experience in Argentina. No wonder it attracts the world’s most intrepid and experienced travelers. After tango dancing in Buenos Aires, you can ride among gauchos on horseback through the sierras, and join a multi-day hike to the prettiest mountain peak in Patagonia before toasting to the end of a once-in-a-lifetime trip in the Mendoza wine region with a glass of Malbec. From one moment to the next, you’ll live, grow, and discover as never before in Argentina.
