ARGENTINA WINE & WALKING TOUR

Two of Argentina’s most stunning regions, the Mendoza Province and the Patagonian National Park Nahuel Huapi, present the gifts of natural beauty and rich culture to guests of this adventure. The wide-open vineyards of the Mendoza Province lie in the shadow of the Andes Mountains, where you will sample fine cuisine expertly paired with wine. Tour one of the 80+ local wineries, stroll leisurely through international shops, or relax outside while viewing the panoramic vistas. Patagonia’s Nahuel Huapi National Park then takes center stage in Bariloche, offering breathtaking scenery, moderately strenuous hikes in the world-famous Andean mountains, and diverse wildlife.

HUMAN OUTREACH PROJECT

One of World Wide Trekking’s founding principles is giving back to the places we travel. Through our sister non-profit, Human Outreach Project, we are making a difference in lives around the globe, and connecting trekkers with voluntourism opportunities in local communities.

Although we don’t have projects in this part of the world, there are always opportunities to get involved and find a meaningful way to engage with the local community. We would love to talk to you about custom voluntourism and humanitarian opportunities that you can incorporate into your WWTrek trip.
