ExperienceRiding with Gauchos
Patagonia extends across the southern territory of Chile and Argentina—from Neuquén and Araucanía in the north to Tierra del Fuego in the south, from the Chilean fjords to Argentina’s south Atlantic cliffs.
In the west, granite spears and ice-clad volcanoes loom above pale-blue lakes and primordial forests. East of the Andes, the Patagonian steppe stretches to the horizon.
Nature is alive here. She speaks in the voice of the wind, the song of hopeful birds, and the crack of ancient ice. Come and listen.
ARGENTINE PATAGONIA IS TRANSFORMATIVE

GO WITH LANDED.
John from LANDED did an excellent job planning our trip to Argentina. He quickly grasped our likes and dislikes and planned a customized itinerary to suit our needs. We can’t wait to use him again for our next trip. As a matter of fact, we just got back and have planned the next one to Costa Rica.
IF YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL.
I would like to extend a big THANK YOU to you for assisting me with my plans to visit Argentina. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful and memorable 25th anniversary in Buenos Aires and the sight of Igauzu was a once-in-a-lifetime memory. The guides did not disappoint. They were positive, fluent, and connected with us on a personal level. We dined in fine restaurants and had terrific seats for the ballet in the Colon Opera House–wow, what a sight to see! Again, thank you for the fabulous memories. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone interested in planning a trip to South America.
Just wanted to drop you a note to say “thank you”. We had a lovely trip. Everything worked out very nicely. The hotels and tour services were top quality. Of note, our tour guides in Buenos Aires and in Rio were wonderful. I should add that while our Rio guide was a 10 out of 10, our Buenos Aires guide was an 11 out of 10—just one of those very special people you meet only every once in a while. Just lovely. Certainly we will keep you in mind for our future trips to Central/South America and will refer you to my friends and colleagues.
