Sergio Gigante

My name is Sergio, your Dutch travel specialist in South America. After graduating university, I started my travels in Argentina, and from there I traveled the rest of the continent. one thing was for sure- I was sold and I came back for many more years. During my travels, I have done a lot of trekking in different countries, as well as jungle tours in the Amazon. Now I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I decided to share my experience with everyone who is interested in visiting South America.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Buenos Aires, Calafate, Mendoza, Iguazu, Ushuaia, Esquel, Bariloche Salta, Jujuy, and many more adventurous excursions, including trekking and custom trips. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"As a little kid, I already knew that I would not stay in the Netherlands. I always liked to travel, and I could not wait until my next trip. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"The walking tour on the glacier Perito Moreno is one I will never forget. As soon as I arrived at the Glacier, big boulders of ice fell into the water. The movement of the ice sounded like thunder. At the start of the walking tour, I stood at the foot of the glacier and realized just how big the glacier really was. Once I climbed up the glacier, I saw so many amazing shades of blue. To finish up, the tour ended with a glass of whiskey and ice from the glacier. It was truly a day I will never forget. "
