A 7-night, 8-day tour of Argentina
This month sees the publication of the 93rd annual edition of our South American Handbook. The longest-running travel guide in the English language, this legendary book is also the most up-to-date guide to South America available, as it's the only one that is updated annually.
With over nine decades of pioneering travel writing and research under our belts, we can't help but love South America. To help you discover this fascinating continent for yourselves, we've teamed up with Air Europa, Say Hueque and Silverfox Travel & Outdoors to offer one lucky winner a trip for two to Argentina, including international flights from the UK and all the travel accessories you'll need to accompany you on your trip.
We will, of course, provide the winner with a copy of the brand new edition of the South American Handbook 2017, and three runners-up will also receive a copy of the Handbook.
Argentina is a fascinating country with a hugely diverse landscape: from the lush jungles and thundering waters of the north, to the creaking glacial ice of the south, and in between Buenos Aires offers a seductive mix of tango milongas, superb restaurants and elegant architecture.
The flights to Argentina will be provided by Air Europa. The Latin American specialist, Air Europa has for 30 years delivered the very best in inflight experience, and is proud to be one of the world’s most punctual airlines with connections from London Gatwick via Madrid to some of the key cities in Latin America and the Caribbean.
