Federica, your local contact in Argentina and Chile
Hi! I’m Federica, member of Transhumans team; I am here to help you create your own special and unique adventure in Argentina and Chile. Just let me know what your needs and desires are and I will do the rest.
An anthropology degree, 10 years in Argentina and a real passion for travelling cemented my desire to help people plan their trips through Argentina and Chile. The essence of travelling for me is to look, smell, taste, touch, feel and experience, meet different people who may change my attitude towards life.
Let me help you organize an enjoyable trip through the natural and cultural wonders of this part of South America.
Let's go to Argentina !
Argentina’s diverse ecosystems and indigenous cultures.
Argentina, the second largest country in South America is a land of contrasts and varied ecosystems.
The Puna, a dry high plateau in the Andes. A land of salt lakes where only few animals like vicunas, lamas or chinchillas can survive.The colourful mineral landscape of the Calchaquíes Valleys dotted with century old cacti and villages with secular traditions. The Kolla communities inhabit the North West Argentina.
The Yungas, a subtropical wet forest, home to an exceptional biodiversity. Argentine Rainforest, with the Iguazu Falls,one of the biggest and most impressive waterfalls in the world, Jesuit Missions, “mate” plantations and home to Guarani tribes.
The Central region with the Pampas, its traditional “gaucho” lifestyle, Estancias and large cities like Buenos Aires, the capital city that looks and feels European. Mendoza, with its great wines and its ingenious irrigation system devised by the Huarpes.
The South, a land of majestic mountains, glaciers, stunning National Parks and the most striking trekking routes. Tierra del Fuego, with the historic Strait of Magellan and the Beagle Channel. From there you can appreciate Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, from the point of view of the first sailors. This region is also home to the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, the largest temperate ice sheet in the Southern Hemisphere.
