​Deutschsprachige Zubuchertour Patagonien

“Patagonien hat tiefe Wurzeln in meinen Gedanken hinterlassen” – Charles Darwin 1809 – 1882


Nicht nur der Naturwissenschaftler Charles Darwin, wurde, seit dem er hier und dort in diesem weitem, teils sehr trockenem und menschen verlassene Land war, von den Besonderheiten und natürlichen Schönheiten beeindruckt. Es sind viele die, seit der Entstehung der Arten, offen, naturgebunden aber auch unbewusst seiner Theorie, im südlichsten Zipfel Amerikas gereist sind. Dank der wunderschönen hier erlebten Momente und Eindrücke sind deren Gedanken von Patagonien immer noch stark geprägt.

Color Patagonia

Unendliche Steppen Pampas, magische Buchenwälder, eigenartige Tiere, immer unterschiedlich blau- aber auch grün und Türkis gefärbte Seen zu Füßen von Granit- Kolossen sind nur ein Teil der Mystik, die Patagonien erweckt! Nicht nur die Natur ist einladend! Der Argentinier und der Chilene ist gastfreundlich und dies wird spätestens während eines asados, Grill- abendessen klargestellt. In diesem weitläufigen Land voller umzingelnden Horizonten wird das Gefühl der Lebendigkeit erwachen. Buenos Aires und, fern von den Geräuschen der Großstadt, Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Gletscher Moreno und Torres del Paine sind die großen Höhepunkte dieser Deutschsprachigen Zubuchertour.

Viele Reisende haben gehört … , dass der Herr im Himmel sich die Farben in den vielen Seen am Fusse der Anden holt, um die wunderschönen Himmel Patagoniens zu malen … Wer weiss, sicher ist, dass Patagonien mehr als eine Reise Wert ist. Unsere Empfehlung ist “Lass‘ nichts außer Fußabdrücken zurück und außer Deinen Eindrücken und besten Fotos, nehme nichts mit.”

THIS IS NOT ANOTHER CITY TOUR

This is an original cultural immersion experience, highly recommended for visitors looking for a behind the scenes encounter with Buenos Aires.


The best way to really learn a language is to live it through day to day situations. That is why we bring you this fun, unique and friendly city promenade, joined by a local person that doesn’t even seem to be a guide, but a friend that shows you around and tells you facts and stories about Buenos Aires.

Walking through the lively and charming streets of Palermo neighborhood, you will merge with locals, hop into designer shops and fascinate yourself with the current street art scene in Buenos Aires.

In the course of the walk, you will experience a different basic Spanish class, distinguished by the introduction of Lunfardo, the porteño slang. Words, expressions and/or verbs such as bondi, laburo, chabón, afanar and al divino botón might be heard and learnt.

Lunfardo was born in Buenos Aires during the second half of the 19th century, due to the contribution of immigration – specially Italian – and words of indigenous, African, and Gaucho origin.

At first, this jargon was used by criminals and soon by people from the lower and lower middle classes. At the beginning of the 20th century, lunfardo began to spread among all social classes, either by the usual use, because it was common in the lyrics of tango, or both.

Nowadays, some of its terms are part of the natural language of almost all of Argentina, Uruguay and, to a lesser extent, Paraguay. While some words of the old lunfardo of the early 20th century have been modified, new ones have also been added. In 2011 it was considered that the lunfardo already consisted of around 6000 words.

On this “city talk”, while going in and out of every kind shops, you will learn how to apply the porteño slang to feel like a local living the everyday life, and learn about the history and present of the capital city and Argentina, interacting with great venues in a real social, cultural and fun immersion.

This unique experience is not only an amusing way to get to know Buenos Aires, but  a must for everyone who wants to get an insider!

BUENOS AIRES ARTISTIC INTIMACY

We bring you a close encounter experience to enter into the porteña artistic life and discover the intimacy of a couple of trendy ateliers in Buenos Aires.


If you are a collector of experiences interested in art and curious about how the artistic mind works, this is the perfect one for you.

Argentina has always been an important beaux arts country with world famous artists like Marta Minujín, Xul Solar and Antonio Berni. In the recent years, art has gained even more relevance -specially in Buenos Aires- thanks to special events such as ArteBA and the Art Week every April, the refurbishment of classic museums and the development of new ones, and the growing interest of young people in street and urban art.

Specifically, the neighborhoods of Palermo, Villa Crespo and Chacarita, have become the center of Argentine contemporary art, pushed by the setup of several art galleries.

Walking through these lovely quarters with cobbled stoned passages, small low houses and green vegetation, we appreciate bright murals and vibrant street art made by fashionably controversial local street artists.

Around these blocks, we visit a two or three workshops of artists with different styles, to meet the people behind the talent. With a coffee cup or glass of wine in between, we get to chat and know these artists in their creative temples and learn all about their sources of inspiration, tools and techniques. We are able to see their work up close, feel its textures, and listen to the creators explain their point of views and concepts.

An enjoyable informal meeting with these art passionates gives us a chance to know them personally, have an idea of their creative processes and what they think and expect of the cultural and artistic scene in Argentina.

  • Duration: 3 hs
  • Regular excursion operates Wednesdays and Fridays at 2 pm.
