Active tourism in Argentina

 

Active tourism is one of the most popular and most requested activities world wide. We find in Argentina and Chile one of the most interesting areas for the practice of adventure sports and activities, as well as cultural routes, National Parks and discovery trips on our amazing National Route N° 40, which crosses our country from north to south with more than 5000 Km long.
