Biking and kayaking in Delta del Tigre

There is a community living in the islands so you can discover hundreds of houses and private ports while kayaking on the steady waters. The tour starts with a bike ride and then a kayak stroll. Always with a local guide.

Biking around the city

Buenos Aires  is bursting with cards everyday, any time of the year. However, “ciclovías” or bike paths make it easier to explore the city at your own pace. Plus, bikes are always ahead of traffic! You can enjoy a traditional tour to the southern area of Buenos Aires, the most colorful and famous. Caminito, La Boca, la Bombonera, San Telmo and Parque Lezama are the highlights of this bike trip. Try the bamboo bikes! A real sustainable option to explore Buenos Aires. 

  • You will be provided with a helmet and an English speaking guide will take you wandering.

2. Iguazú Falls

Ecological train

Iguazú National Park is visited by hundreds of thousands every year. It is maybe the most international destination of Argentina after Patagonia. Sustainable tourism is especially important in Iguazú. And the preservation of the vegetation and wildlife of the park too. That is why, you can explore the Argentine side of the park on foot or by an ecological train. This is a relaxing ride but with a stunning end: the Garganta del Diable, the most powerful and huge of all the waterfalls inside the park.

  • Coaties are everywhere in this park. These are like native racoons, but beware not to feed them.

Hiking trail in Chlatén

Chaltén is maybe the 100% sustainable destination of Argentina. Everywhere in this little village you can go by walking. And to enjoy walking if for what most people come, specially hiking lovers. All hiking trails are part of the Glacier National Park so you will see some amazing wildlife and vegetation there. Sustainable behavior is crucial for the preservation of these trails.

Kayaking in Tierra del Fuego National Park Ushuaia

Tierra del Fuego National Park definitely is the highlight of Ushuaia. Most people drive to the park and walk inside to places like Bahía Lapataia, the southernmost part of the park. But others take the challenge and go on a kayaking trip to explore the marvelous waters inside the park. These are the waters of hundreds of beevers too!

4. Mendoza

Biking in the vineyards

Sustainable tours are about reinventing how we connect with traditional places. And wine tours in Mendoza are a classic stop. After enjoying gourmet food and one or two glasses of the best wine in Argentina, you can go for a ride through the vineyards. The best way to explore the land and see how people do their artisan work and take care of grapes during the harvest.

Walk with llamas

Llamas are our native camelids and are very important animals to northerners. With their wool clothes are produced to cope with the freezing nights in the puna. But they are also a good company for humans. In this tour you will enjoy a walking trail next to your llama and discover how northerners often feel. You won’t live anything like anywhere else.
