This weekend we would like to highlight our some of our best sustainable tourism adventure options in South America!

Hiking is a growing trend for independent travelers in search of a personal challenge and a closer contact with nature. It also implies a conscious decision on behalf of the hiker to adopt a simpler, less cluttered approach while spending time outdoors. Hiking experiences prove that we don’t need that much stuff to be happy and satisfied. Check out these low-impact hikes in Argentina:
