Join us and explore the magnificence of Argentina, from the premiere city of Buenos Aires and historic La Plata to San Martin de Los Andes, and the thundering wonder of Iguazu Falls.

We will see the Total Solar Eclipse just north of San Martin de los Andes on December 14, 2020.

In Buenos Aires, we will explore the city and have a special visit to the Galileo Galilei Planetarium in the Parque Tres de Febrero. The Planetario (as it is known)looks like a UFO, and also has a collection of meteorites from the north of Argentina.We'll see the many displays inside and outside of the Planetario, followed by a introduction to the southern night skies and discussion of the 2020 Total Solar Eclipse.

At La Plata, we will visit the superb Natural History Museum which is the outgrowth of Francisco Moreno's collection of anthropological, fossil, and bone findings in the 1860's. At the entrance, we will be greeted by two statues of sabre-tooth cats, which were native to the Pampas of Argentina. Inside there are vast collections including dinosaur fossils from the Pampas of Argentina.

Our flight to San Martin de los Andes will take us over the
immense Pampas, to this charming resort town nestled in the Andes.

We will discover the renowned Argentine Lake Country as we journey to Huechulafquen Lake and Lanin Volcano, including a sailing trip on the lake or a hike, plus an outdoor barbecue.

Options await you in San Martin de los Andes including kayaking on the lake, biking, birdwatching, and more.

A highlight of the trip will be the Total Solar Eclipse on December 14, 2020. We will travel north of San Martin de los Andes to watch the eclipse and then have a celebratory lunch.

Our adventure will continue as we fly to Iguazu Falls National Park for three nights at the spectacular La Cantera Jungle Lodge, and see this utterly magnificent waterfall and park which has a profusion of tropical birdlife.

We will travel with Betchart South America expert, Dr. Tom
Love, and astronomer Dr. TylerNordgren, popular leaders of our Chile Total Solar Eclipse trip in 2019.

We hope you will join us for this remarkable adventure and
to see the 2020 Total Solar Eclipse!
