A true South American tour experience
Every tourist you speak to who has been to South America on tour, has a glint in their eye as they recall their tour down here! There is so much on offer and you’d be hard pressed to find a more passionate bunch when it comes to their sport.
It is a country that lends itself to good old fashioned road trips, combined with magnificent scenery. You can do the traditional route around Buenos Aires, taking in Rosario and Mar Del Plata, or if the budget allows, you should try and head inland to Mendoza, Salta or Tucuman where it is hard to explain what a great time you will have!
SPORTS & SEASONS
Rugby has become a major sport in Argentina thanks to the fact that most of the private schools in Buenos Aires are all based on the British school system and it is played at most of the schools.
You can be sure of tremendous hospitality and equally good opposition. The billeting with local families is a wonderful addition to this tour giving students an excellent insight to Argentinian culture. Boys hockey is played within local clubs which makes billeting less likely.
Buenos Aires is known as the Paris of the Americas and it doesn’t take long to see why as you walk the streets. Take in a Tango or visit the Boca Juniors Stadium and remember, the Steaks are A-MAZE-ING. Once you head out of the cosmopolitan region of Buenos Aires, the country takes on a more rural feel, but the welcome is just as warm!
The Iguazu Falls are truly spectacular and a trip up here at the end of a tour is a regular highlight. In Mendoza, a visit to a winery in the shadows of the Andes is a great way to while away an afternoon, or you could try white water rafting. Estancia visits are also a great chance to see how the Gaucho’s spent their time on the pampas in years gone by!
