A special aspect of this tour is the experience of the Gaucho culture and traditional music and dance that defines northern Argentine folklore. The Argentine folklore dates back to the 1500s when Spanish colonial forces ruled the lands. Often referred to as criolla, the customs are an eclectic mix of European and indigenous heritage which have morphed into a new fascinating subculture.

Center to folklore culture is the guacho, a hardy Argentine cowboy who has traditionally lived off the land. The gaucho is something of an idolized folk hero in the north. He is a figure that everyday citizens aspire to become. A source of cultural pride. On our last night we experience an Argentine peña that revolves around four essential themes – music, dance, food and drink – all of which are enjoyed in abundance.

Confirmed tours are dates that have been selected by us that have a very high probability of reaching the minimum group size for us to run the tour and for you to receive the best Ciclismo Classico experience. These tours are confirmed as much as a year in advance, compared to our regularly scheduled tours which are confirmed around 90 days prior to departure.  When you place your deposit for a confirmed tour, you have the green light to make your pre and post travel plans and even book your flight with our personal guarantee that your tour will run!

Optional Single Supplement

If you are traveling alone, this optional single supplement will guarantee you a room to yourself at each hotel. The cost of a single room is often more than half the price of a shared room, so this additional supplement reflects that increased cost for each night over the course of the trip.
