We would like to invite you on a journey to one of the largest countries in the world, Argentina! Located on the southern tip of South America, Argentina's festive cities and historic countryside are as diverse as the climates within the country's borders. From Buenos Aires to Iguazu National Park, our adventure in Argentina will be an experience in history, dance, archaeology, and art.

This tour will be arriving and departing out of Buenos Aires. Activities along the tour include visiting the city of Salta, exploring Iguazu Falls, wine tasting, archaeological sites, and more!

Program Fee:

Argentina: Land of Dreams      Double Occupancy    Single Occupancy

All in-country costs are covered including, hotels, lectures, entrance fees, three meals a day, tipping, and ground transportation. Your transportation costs to and from Argentina are not included.

Important note: Travel insurance is always recommended for any travel out of the United States. It protects the passenger’s financial investment, as well as any unexpected medical needs during travel. University of Alaska Fairbanks does not sell travel insurance policies, but there are several ways to purchase coverage. Some credit card companies insure trips that are purchased with their card. Another option is to check with a local travel agency. Travel insurance is also available via CampDoc, our travel program registration system. We advise that you look into coverage within 15 days of making the deposit, as some vendors require the coverage to be purchased within that time period to receive the most benefit.

Small as the country by the North Sea may be, it has a dazzling number of historical, cultural and engineering sights. From the Dutch masters of painting to sober medieval and ornate renaissance architecture. Explore historic monuments, modern engineering, and, to pique your gustatory senses, a tremendous variety of cheeses and chocolate.

These are just a few of the many exciting and interesting things the country has to offer. Come with us and see the very best of them, enhanced by fascinating lectures and guided tours executed by local experts. Bikes will be on board and will be available for organized tours.

You will discover the Netherlands in an unusual way via its most typical element: the water. Rivers, canals, and lakes abound, and you will sail many of them on the lovely Fiep. This comfortable barge will be both your main mode of transportation and your group’s hotel for the entire trip. The Grand Tulip tour gives you a wonderful insight into the heart and soul of The Netherlands.
