Friendly Planet Travel Announces Detailed Argentina Tours

(Jenkintown, Pennsylvania) - Argentina is known as a wonderland of beauty, tango, food, wine, and (of course) soccer. Once an exotic playground for backpackers, adventure seekers, and high-rolling wine connoisseurs, Argentina seemed out of limits for the average traveler.

But now, thanks to Pennsylvania-based tour company Friendly Planet Travel, more vacationers than ever before can experience one of South America's most resplendent countries. The company's 11-day Incredible Argentina tour for $1,599 includes all the majesty of Argentina's natural attractions and the cosmopolitan thrills of Buenos Aires, "the Paris of the South." Take in one of the greatest natural wonders of the world at Iguazú Falls. Hit the slopes at the world-renowned Mount Cathedral Ski Resort. Hop into exotic shops nestled among Buenos Aires' cafés, cathedrals, and nightclubs.

The trip includes round-trip airfare from Miami; all transportation; deluxe hotel accommodations; daily breakfast; and comprehensive sightseeing with a local, English-speaking guide.

"Argentina is the stuff travelers' dreams are made of," says Peggy Goldman, President of Friendly Planet Travel. "With expeditions that explore verdant rainforest floors, some of the highest peaks of the Andes, and dynamic city streets, our Incredible Argentina tour is as diversified as the country itself. From the subtropical north, to the glacial south, Argentina is one of the most soul-stirring countries I've ever seen. Not to mention, the Argentines-considered some of the world's friendliest, most seductive, engaging people in the world-will make sure you never want your Argentina adventure to end."

Travelers visit three of Argentina's most ecologically and culturally significant destinations: Iguazú, Bariloche, and Buenos Aires. In addition to Friendly Planet's daily scheduled excursions, vacationers can also choose from an array of discount tour options at almost every stop along the trip. For instance, they can take a trip to Victoria Island, where they'll ascend Mount Bella Vista by a chairlift to walk down a narrow path of ancient trees that affords some of the most spectacular views in the region. Or visit the Cerro Catedral, rising to nearly 8,000 feet. Here travelers can spend the afternoon at Argentina's world-renowned Mount Cathedral ski resort. Later, spend an optional day outside Buenos Aires at the beautiful town of Tigre, an island in the Paraná Delta that was first settled by Europeans and has since become a fashionable weekend spot. With its grand architecture, antiques shops, riverside restaurants and pubs, a casino, and a small amusement park, it's no wonder why.
