Michelle & Stephen Ruffing and Family

(Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, United States)

"Communications from Fred during our trip could not have better. It was wonderful to be taken care of so well!"

"The travel booklet Exploration Journeys put together for us that included our hotel information, excursions, flights, tips, etc., was invaluable."

"Exploration Journey did everything they said they would do, and more!"

Michelle & Stephen visited: Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Ushuaia, El Calafate and Bariloche.
This was their first trip to Argentina

TRIP REVIEW OF MICHELLE & STEPHEN RUFFING AND FAMILY

"When our son decided to spend a college semester studying abroad in Buenos Aires, we thought it would a great opportunity to tour Argentina with him after his classes completed. None of us had been to Argentina previously; after doing some research, it became quite clear to us that it was a big country with many different and unique areas - we had no idea how to even start planning our visit! Our goal was to see and experience as much of the country as possible in 12 days without doing too much or too little.

We found Exploration Journeys online and chose them after lots of Internet searches - we really liked the ability to choose from the various itineraries/excursions listed and modify for our interests. From initial contact, Fred was always so quick to respond to our questions and provided helpful recommendations as we developed and put the final touches on our itinerary.

Our trip started in Buenos Aires (we relied on our son to be our "tour guide" there), and then we went on to visit:

Iguazu: Took a private tour of the Argentinian side of the falls, including a boat ride close to the falls - thrilling! Due to high water levels, our originally scheduled boat tour was cancelled, but Fred provided complimentary upgrades so we could start the boat ride in a different area of the falls to make sure we did not miss out on this experience.

Ushuaia: Our tour guide on the Hiking and Canoeing to the Ends of the Earth Tour was very personable and the views were spectacular. They provided lunch, well earned after our morning hike, was excellent and fueled us for our afternoon canoe trip in the National Park.

El Calafate: The Multi Adventure on the Perito Moreno Glacier was one of our favorites - trekking on a glacier was exhilarating!

Bariloche: The Panoramic Images of Bariloche and the VIP Navigation in the Lakes Regions tours proved once again how beautiful Argentina was. Note that Bariloche also has amazing chocolate shops - not to be missed.

Communications from Fred during our trip could not have better - each excursion, hotel, and transfer were provided flawlessly and we were always kept informed of pick-up times and any changes along the way (including currency rate changes that occurred while we were there when Argentina installed their new President). Airline web check-ins/boarding passes were completed for us, when possible, and we had some unique requests that were also executed perfectly - it was wonderful to be taken care of so well! The travel booklet Exploration Journeys put together for us that included our hotel information, excursions, flights, tips, etc., was invaluable.

We are so glad we used Exploration Journeys to help plan our trip to Argentina, and highly recommend them - we could not have put such a comprehensive and well organized trip together by ourselves without their expertise. Exploration Journeys did everything they said they would do, and more!"

DAY 5: IGUAZU

Witness the Unique Power & Might of the Iguazu Falls from the Argentine Side (private tour)

“You might have seen the photos. Even read about it. You might have visited other great waterfalls before. But you probably still have no idea what to expect when you come face to face with the almighty Iguazu Falls,” stated CNN in their article “Iguazu Falls: Why this natural wonder should be on everyone’s bucket list". To put that into perspective, Iguazu Falls is nearly twice as tall as Niagara Falls and nearly three times as wide. The late U.S. First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, was reportedly so impressed by the sight of Iguazu Falls that she exclaimed “Poor Niagara!”

In 1984, Iguazu Falls became a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and in 2011, it was selected as one of the 7 winners of the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” worldwide competition in which more than 100 million votes were cast.

Their size and scale are unlike any other waterfall on Earth. Made up of a system of 275 waterfalls, they have a staggering water flow of up to almost 3.5 million gallons (13 million liters) per second – enough to fill five Olympic swimming pools!

Unlike Niagara Falls, which is surrounded by developments such as casinos, a revolving restaurant, and coffee shops, Iguazu Falls are located within one of the few remaining inland rainforests in South America, the Atlantic rainforest, which is a haven for more than 2,000 plant species, about 400 birds species, and 80 types of mammals!

This is a full-day private tour.

A Speedboat Adventure Up-Close the Iguazu Falls

Get ready for a thrilling speedboat adventure, enjoying a unique, up-close perspective of the majestic Iguazu Falls and experience a different viewpoint of the falls from what you’ll see from the panoramic boardwalks. Our speedboat will zip the waters of the Iguazu River and approach the falls getting thoroughly splashed by their mist as you hear their loud roar!

This ride provides a unique and extremely close-up view of the San Martin and Three Musketeers falls with the opportunity to take outstanding close-up photos. The high point of this experience will be without a doubt, being showered under the mist of the San Martin Falls; the second strongest falls in the Iguazu system. Now it’s time to hop on board and begin our waterfall adventure!

This is a 12-minute group tour and is done on the same day you do the Argentinean side of the falls tour. This tour has an age restriction (click on tour name above for details).

With 63,000 hectares of land this National Park is larger than the city of Chicago! You’ll encounter some of the most pristine and beautiful scenery nature has to offer, while experiencing the uniquely remote feeling of truly being at the ends of the Earth.

Our expert guide will help you discover the hidden wonders of the Tierra del Fuego National Park, including its enchanting lakes, forests, lush vegetation, and wildlife as you surround yourself in the peaceful serenity of nature.
We’ll trek the coastal path (one of the most beautiful areas in the entire National Park) and then embark on a canoeing expedition downriver and across clear water streams while experiencing the calming breeze and breathtaking landscapes. Our canoeing journey concludes when we get to Lapataia Bay, where Argentina’s National Route #3 ends. This road is the last (and southernmost) stretch of the Pan-American Highway, which runs all the way to Alaska.

This is a full-day group tour and includes lunch with non-alcoholic beverages & wine.

Discover your inner adventurer as you explore and conquer one of the world’s most awe-inspiring and unique glaciers: The Perito Moreno. This splendid ice giant showcases its mighty glory in the Patagonian Glaciers National Park, which has been declared Mankind’s Natural Heritage site by UNESCO. The park’s vast size not only gives it the distinction of being the largest ice mantle in the world after Antarctica, but also that of being the third largest fresh water reserve on the planet.

Now, picture yourself strapping on your ice spikes, as you begin trekking along this ice giant on a full-day discovery journey along one of the few glaciers in the world, which is actually growing and advancing.

Your full day of adventure will include a close-up navigation of the Perito Moreno Glacier and a visit to the seven panoramic balconies facing the front of the glacier where you’ll have amazing picture-taking opportunities. After an adventure-packed day, you’ll be able to rest with the satisfaction of having successfully conquered the mighty Perito Moreno!

You’ll also enjoy one of the world’s 10 most beautiful panoramic views, as rated by National Geographic. With so many awesome panoramic viewpoints, you’ll have plenty of great opportunities to capture the perfect nature photos while marveling at the beautiful sights all around you.

This is a half-day group tour.

DAY 12: BARILOCHE

Navigating the Nahuel Huapi Lake & Exploring the Victoria Island and the Myrtle Forest

Prepare to navigate the beautiful blue waters of the Nahuel Huapi Lake, the largest in Argentina’s Lake District, set against the backdrop of the snow-capped Andes mountain range. We’ll enjoy our exclusive seating in the boat’s upper deck cabin. From here we’ll experience superior panoramic views and a much more exclusive setting, since there are only 50 seats in this cabin (compared to the over-200-people capacity of the regular cabin).

Known for its cold glacial waters and for being the habitat of kelp gulls and blue-eyed cormorants (which are typically only found near oceans), the Nahuel Huapi Lake provides plenty of natural beauty and beckons with the serenity of its waters.

We’ll visit the largest island on the Nahuel Huapi Lake: Victoria Island, home to a wide array of flora and fauna; also offering plenty of history, including ancient cave paintings. Another highlight of this navigation includes a visit to a unique forest of myrtle trees at Arrayanes National Park. These intriguing, cinnamon-hued trees are known for their attractive, smooth and tan bark, peppered with white spots; and giving the forest a captivating mystique. It’s widely rumored that Walt Disney drew inspiration from this myrtle forest to create his animated classic ’Bambi’ but there’s actually no evidence to back up this claim.
