DAY 2 BUENOS AIRES

Morning city tour of Buenos Aires named “The Paris of South America”. Buenos Aires, cosmopolitan city that unveils its immigrant heritage at every step. The tour heads first to Plaza de Mayo, historical and political core of the city, to discover its main buildings and monuments: the Pirámide de Mayo, the Casa Rosada (Presidential Palace), the colonial Cabildo and the Metropolitan Cathedral. We continue along Avenida de Mayo, interesting for its different architectural styles, to reach 9 de Julio Avenue, with its eight lanes embellished with lawns,
fountains and sculptures, and of course the Obelisco, undisputable emblem and gravitational center of the city. From here the tour travels back in time to San Telmo, the oldest districts in the city, where each Sunday an antiques’ market takes place, and which boasts an attracting night vibe with gourmet restaurants, lively bars and, of course, the “tanguerias” (restaurants with live tango). Moving on southwards, we reach the picturesque port district of La Boca, with its famous alley Caminito whose colored tin houses and customs reflect the influence of the 19th century European immigrants in the typical “cantinas” (small restaurants) and “conventillos” (tenement houses). The visit continues to Puerto Madero, with its old port warehouses turned into offices, apartments, world-class restaurants and bars, with an amazing view of the docks and the Rio de la Plata. Finally, we continue to the residential neighborhood of Palermo with its elegant mansions and ample parks, to end at La Recoleta, where there are remarkable sights such as the church of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, the Cultural Center and the circular building of the Palais de Glace. We will visit the cemetery, surprising for its rich architecture, for its suggestive stories and the relevant historic figures buried there, among whom Evita is probably the most renowned. Return to hotel.

DAY 3 BUENOS AIRES

Enjoy today at your leisure to explore the city. In the evening, dinner and tango show at the Café de los Angelitos. Departure from your hotel towards the southern districts of Buenos Aires, where most of the “ tanguerias” (tango clubs) were located. The Tango music was born in the late 19th century in the “ arrabales” (southern suburbs) of Buenos Aires, populated by “criollos” (Argentine natives), Italian and Spanish immigrants, some African descendants and people from many other countries. Their fights, their needs, their poverty, their passions, their pretense were the spark that created this mythical and passionate piece of Argentine culture. Its emotive lyrics are sometimes difficult to understand and almost impossible to translate but always deeply poetic. Inaugurated in 1890, in that profound south of the “frontiers” of Buenos Aires, where the city gave way to the countryside, where thugs and troublemakers would gather, “El Café de los Angelitos” soon became a favorite of the famous Carlos Gardel. The café, recently distinguished by the city government as one of its “Bares Notables” (Remarkable Bars) due to its historic relevance, opens nowadays a window to the past though a show that travels the history of Tango. It is also an ideal place to enjoy some excellent cuisine. By midnight, after the show, return to the hotel.

The glacier is an impressive river of ice with a surface of 257 square Kms.,a length of 30 kms. and a width of four kms. The height of the front wall ranges between 50 and 60 meters above the level of the lake. In the central part of the glacier, the ice has a depth of between 250 and 350 meters. This frozen river descends from the continental ice field and causes in its slow progress landslides and explosions that make the glacier a wonder in constant motion. It is a show that impresses not only by its visual beauty, but also by the constant roar you hear from inside it, which has caused it to be declared a World Heritage Site.
