Buenos Aires Highlights:
The birthplace of tango, the Paris of the South America and home to two of the most passionately supported football clubs in the world, Buenos Aires is a city rich with culture, excitement, and adventure.
Program participants are overwhelmed with a choice of museums, street theater, live jazz and cafe orchestras, and will love the theaters and bookshops of the Avenida Corrientes. The city is also home to the 19th century Teatro Colon, as well known for its stunning architecture as for the renowned opera and ballet performances it has hosted. By contrast, small folk clubs called penas give visitors an insight into the music and dance of gaucho culture.
Further afield there are opportunities for whale watching, tours of the wine region, hiking in the Andes, and skiing in Bariloche. Make time for a trip to the dramatic landscape of Patagonia at the end of the world, or to experience the spectacular sight of the Iguazu Falls.
