Sabrina Spiess

Traveling has always been my greatest passion, which I turned into my profession after studying tourism in 2010. Then, I have been living in Canada for one year with a Work & Travel visa. After staying in Canada, I was travelling through South America for several months and staying in Argentina a few times, where I now live, in Buenos Aires - the Paris of South America. I have fallen in love with its diverse landscapes, culture, and people!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"As a travel expert for Argentina, I will put together your personal travel experience for you. Marvel at the breathtaking Iguazú waterfalls in the subtropical north, experience the freedom of a rental car tour through the northeast of Argentina and marvel at the mountain of seven colors. Enjoy the popular Malbec red wine during a wine tasting in Mendoza. In the south, the glaciers of Patagonia await you, hike in Bariloche or immerse yourself in the culture and architecture of Buenos Aires. Argentina has something to offer for everyone! Feel free to contact me if you are interested in amazing tailor-made trips to Argentina or in combination with the neighbouring countries like Chile, Brazil and Uruguay."

How did you get involved in travel?

"The love for traveling started very early, when I was a child and we went on family trips each year. So, I have always loved traveling and get to know new places and immerse myself in the locals' culture and lifestyle."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"The most remarkable experience I have made during my travels was a hiking trip from the town Iruya, which is situated in the north of Humahuaca, Argentina, to a small village in the mountains called San Lorenzo. Walking through the colourful mountains in mere silence, meeting literally no one on the way, was really stunning. It felt like I was set back in time, because the village itself was small, nearly no electricity and the place I have stayed was basic. The people were friendly, warm and welcoming, and at night you could see the most beautiful starry sky I have ever seen."
