Our team

Our travel agency

We are seasoned tourism professionals, with more than 15 years of experience exploring and sharing our passion for Argentinian culture and landscapes.

Once Upon a time

The spirit of adventure, independence and comradeship presided over the foundation of the first Terra agency in 1998, in Bolivia. Two friends, now business partners, set out to invite travellers to experience South America as they knew it. Pierre, our co-founder, discovered Bariloche… and has not left eversince, seduced by the pure waters, the snowy peaks of the Cordillera and the Argentinians warmth. Terra Argentina was born.

 

14 years later, we are very lucky to still work from the heart of northern Patagonia, in San Carlos de Bariloche, capital of the Argentinian Lakes District.  Our  location at the gates of the Nahuel Huapi National Park is certainly one of our best assets. We work very closely with our sister-agencies in Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil… to offer a complete South-American experience. Over the years, we have become a reliable and well-known operator, successfully organizing numerous cross-border trips for all tastes and styles.

 

We are constantly exploring new sites and trying out new experiences across the country, crafting true, authentic moments and encounters to share the Argentinian culture at its finest with our travellers. Come onboard, and let Argentina surprise you as it still surprises us.

Let's go on an adventure in the field!

Always on the lookout for novelties, our team shares its field explorations with you!

One great thing to do

Hike every weekend in the Lakes region: I will never get tired of our incredible landscapes, and the passing of seasons in this region.

 

A Personal Favourite

Pedral Lodge,nestled in a private Magellanic penguin reserve on Patagonia’s Atlantic Coast.

 

Something Yummy

The traditional Patagonian roasted sheep, to change from the omnipresent (albeit exquisite) beef meat!

 

Something Incredible

Ever dreamt of seeing Cape Horn? + link australis.

justine - terra argentina

I am a traveller at heart, and first came to Argentina for a year… and have not left eversince. From Tango to Gaucho culture, from hiking our beautiful trails to cooking vegetarian empanadas… Argentina never ceases to amaze me, and its warm inhabitants are its best ambassadors. Beware of the variety of landscapes, climates and cultures: this is a diverse country, take your time to explore it!

 

One great thing to do

Visit estancias, wherever you go: Argentina’s first settlers have kept their history alive, and they have a wonderful sense of hospitality.

 

A Personal Favourite

The Esteros del Ibera Region: wildlife abounds in this natural wetlands sanctuary.

 

Something Yummy

The excellent Argentinian wine, ever-adapting to rough natural conditions, and the traditional maté, which always implies sharing a moment and talking the day away.

 

Something Incredible

Everything! But mainly: distances. I first understood what “endless horizon” meant coming here. Peaks do not bear names yet, roads can be unpaved, and nature and silence surprise you everywhere – it is a truly immersive experience.

sophie - terra argentina

Argentina… My adoptive country, which welcomed me with open arms ever since my arrival 7 years ago. After 3 years in Bariloche, exploring the great lakes and mountains, I left for the Andalucian sun. But Patagonia’s call was stronger, and merely a year later, I was back – for good this time. I have traveled all over Argentina, and I will gladly share my secrets and assist you to build your dream trip. Sign in for my enthusiasm and a sprinkle of humour, and I will gladly welcome you in this huge and beautiful country.

 

One great thing to do

Feel the tango compas  in an authentic milonga in Buenos Aires – take your first steps here!

 

A Personal Favourite

Join the lucky ones and watch as huge ice blocks detach from the Perito Moreno Glacier in Calafate. It is a natural wonder, unique and fortunately un-programmable ?. Have a look!

 

Something Yummy

Set south to the most remote town in the world: Ushuaia. Try the “centolla”, Southern King Crab, straight from the Beagle Channel – nothing beats fresh local products! 

 

Something Incredible

Gauchos’ charm might throw you off your horse… Do not say I did not warn you 😉
