Ze noemen het een van de meest moeilijke bergen om te beklimmen door zijn mes-vormige vorm, maar het wandelen rondom deze berg in Zuid Argentinië is zeker het geld waard. ‘Cerro Fitz Roy’ (genoemd naar de kapitein van “HMS The Beagle”) of ook wel genaamd ‘Cerro Chaltén’ is maar op 3 uur vliegen en 3 uur met de bus van Buenos Aires. Perfect voor een drie of vier daagse excursie tijdens of na je Spaanse studie bij AMAUTA Spanish Buenos Aires!
They call it one of the most difficult mountains to climb, because of its knife-shaped form, but hiking around this beautiful mountain in southern Argentina is really value for money. ‘Cerro Fitz Roy’ (named after the captain of “HMS The Beagle”) or also named ‘Cerro Chaltén’ is only a three-hour flight plus a three-hour bus ride away from Buenos Aires. Perfect for a three/four-day excursion during or after your Spanish studies at AMAUTA Spanish Buenos Aires!
Después de escuchar muchas historias fantásticas sobre el fenómeno natural de Perito Moreno, Vicente y yo, ambos actuales practicantes de la Escuela de Español AMAUTA Buenos Aires, decidímos viajar al sur de Argentina, a El Calafate. Este lindo pueblo es el hogar de uno de los más impresionantes glaciares de todo el mundo: el Perito Moreno. El Calafate se ha convertido en un destino turístico muy popular en Argentina desde la apertura de su aeropuerto internacional. No sólo para los jóvenes mochileros y viajeros, sino también para los argentinos y viajeros de otros países latinoamericanos. No es de extrañar, porque este paisaje es único y de seguro no lo podrás encontrar en muchos otros lugares del mundo, en especial, por los cambios climáticos actuales. Esto hace que el Perito Moreno sea uno de los sitios más impresionantes de América del Sur.
After hearing many enthusiastic stories about the extraordinary natural phenomenon of Perito Moreno, me and Vincent, both doing our internship at AMAUTA Spanish School Buenos Aires, decided to travel to the south of Argentina , to El Calafate. This cute little town is home to one of the most impressive glaciers worldwide: el Perito Moreno. El Calafate has become a very popular tourist destination in Argentina since the opening of their international airport. Not only for young backpackers and travelers, but also for Argentineans and travelers from other Latin-American countries. No wonder, because this is something you won’t find in many other places around the world, especially not with the current climate changes. This makes the Perito Moreno one of the most stunning sites in South America.
Argentina is a fascinating destination to take a Spanish course. It’s a large and beautiful country; unique in many ways. If you are about to travel to Argentina for your study abroad trip, we have prepared this checklist for you. We hope it will help you planning en packing for your trip to get the most out of your Spanish studies in Buenos Aires and your Argentina experience!
When to go: the climate in Argentina
Argentina is a big, long country so the weather in the north is completely different from the weather in the south. In Argentina you can find it all: from steamy rainforest climates to arid deserts, to mild climates, to the perfect location for skiing!
The city of Buenos Aires has a friendly climate with the mild fall (April) and spring (October) and relatively hot summer (January and February)). The south of Argentina is way colder then the north. Overall the nicest time to visit the country is between the months of November and March. This is also high season, so the prices for tours and hotels will be a bit higher than during mid and low season; the prices for Spanish courses in Buenos Aires will remain the same during one calendar year.
