Welcome to Argentina!

Your Luxury Wildlife Journey begins in Buenos Aires.

Explore Recoleta on foot and go off the beaten path. You will be introduced to the history, architecture, traditions, and unique features of this historic Buenos Aires neighborhood. Visit Recoleta Cemetery and hear fascinating tales about Evita Perón, the misfortune of Rufina Cambaceres, Tiburcia Dominquez’s miserly husband, and Admiral Brown. Stop by Pilar Basilica to admire its stunning architecture, then learn about the history of Recoleta Cemetery itself at the Recoleta Cultural Center and Old Monastery. Visit El Ateneo which is as splendid as its name and exudes Buenos Aires’s nostalgic elegance. See Bourdelle’s Monument to Alvear, then continue to the Palais de Glace, where the Argentine tango came of age. Learn about the history of tango before visiting the BA Design Center and Terraces, the National Library, and the National Fine Arts Museum.

Discover the art scene of San Telmo and La Boca on a morning biking tour

Head off the beaten track on a unique biking tour that takes you pedaling through the hidden southern neighborhoods of Buenos Aires to find the city’s most impressive street art. Far more than urban art, this tour also examines the cutting-edge design district, vibrant neighborhoods and contextualizing it all with historical and cultural background. Riding through La Boca will get you familiar with different graffiti styles, and witness examples of elaborate urban art along the way by artist collectives such as Red Sudakas and Triangulo Dorado. Back on our bikes, we venture towards Barracas, where we can marvel at the elaborate mosaic walls in Pasaje Lanin, and later let our eyes wander along the mural depicting the meeting of Styles Street Art Convention which represents several collaborations between artists. Admire works by other artists, including Pol Corona, Mart, Pum, Martin Ron, and many more.
