DESCRIPTION

Standing directly on the Uyuni Salt Flats, at an altitude of 3’600 m, at the foot of Tunupa Volcano, our luxury dome camp is waiting for you. Dome camp is somewhat of a Mad Max Adventure.
Composed of repeated equilateral triangles, their metallic structure is the very essence of mathematical elegance. In front or on top of the dome, a transparent panel offers wide-open views on the Salar and its star-studded sky. Lit up at night, with solar panels placed in between the domes, they are one of

The afternoon in the domes invites you to a pleasant relaxing time. The activity for your last afternoon is the visit to the interesting archaeological site of Alcaya, at 1.5 hours from the camp, an old Pre-Columbian city close to Salinas.

TESTIMONIALS

Dana Ferguson
Eureka tavel met my needs for the perfect honeymoon & more. Analia was great from the start, in meeting my needs & adjusting where needed.

Always prompt response! Once on our way Cecilia helped me re-arrange things when my visa needed extending, again helping us out at every point! Once we arrived in Brazil, after a bump in the road with group travel, we were at our destination in Buzios, Brazil-AMAZING! We loved the recommended boutique hotel Casas Brancas & would go back in a heartbeat, the people were friendly & views were incredible! We visited at least 10 different Beaches.

We continued on to Rio & enjoyed the planned tours that Analia reccomended & were really great! Eureka travel has great taste & really care about your vacation! Can\'t wait till our next South American trip, we will definately go with Eureka!

This was the trip of a lifetime!
We live in Seattle and had never been south of Mexico (Argentina is ten times better than Mexico!). I had the idea that it might be fun to do something different and go to Argentina. I contacted Analia and Cecilia of this Argentina travel agency via the Zicasso website. Analia took my very rough ideas and crafted the entire trip herself. We had some give and take regarding the times, dates and hotels and she ultimately came up with our final itinerary. All the excursions listed above were her idea and each one was beyond our expectations. At the listed time and date on our itinerary our guide and/or driver would arrive at exactly the right time to take us to our next adventure. We speak no Spanish but never had to worry since everything was handled by Analia. At each airport a guide would have a sign with our name and pick us up and give us a tour on the way to our hotel. The one rough spot occurred when the Argentine airline overbooked and we missed our flight. This NOT the fault of the tour. We called Analia and she got right back to us and had someone there to meet us when our new flight arrived in Bariloche. She or her sister Cecilia called us several times during the trip to make sure things were going will. WHAT SERVICE !!!

My wife and I entered and left Argentina through Buenos Aires. We enjoyed one day on each end of our trip in BA and toured the city both on foot and in a bus. Additionally we enjoyed a tango show our last night in BA. Next we went to Iguazu and spent one long and enjoyable day in the park seeing this incredible waterfall from every direction including a boat ride into the falls. Then we spent 3 days in Mendoza touring the wineries. We stayed in Finca Adalgisa, a boutique winery and hotel. This was the finest hotel experience I've ever had. We were treated like royalty with the staff always asking us if we needed something. After one long morning touring we arrived back at the hotel between meals and the staff took it upon themselves to make a late lunch (at no charge). One evening we took their cooking class with their head chef Kristina and had a blast learning how to make empanadas. Our tour guide to the wineries was Cecilia. She was terrific and was very knowledgeable about winemaking as she had worked for several years at one the wineries. After 3 days we reluctantly left for Bariloche. Our trip there was shortened because of an overbooking at the Argentine airline. We were able to regroup and still got in our short circuit and boat ride of Nahuel Huapi Lake to Puerto Blest. Our guide in Bariloche was Karen - she was excellent and went over everything from plate tectonics to the unique flora and fauna of the lakes region of Argentina. The final leg of our trip was El Califate. This was the most visually spectacular place I have ever seen. (As I mentioned we're from Seattle and the glaciers in Patagonia are far more impressive than Alaska) I'll try to enclose some pictures. We had a full day boat ride among the glaciers of Lago Argentina. The next day we trekked on Pedro Moreno Glacier and had the experience of a lifetime.

My husband and I are indebted to Analia Rupar-Przebieda and the entire Eureka Travel Team for their integral role in creating a truly exquisite once-in-a-lifetime travel experience for us in Buenos Aires and Puerto Iguazu.
Analia’s passion and love for travel in South America clearly translate into a highly personalized and meaningful experience for her clients. She took great care to first get to know us and then to thoughtfully and meticulously plan a travel itinerary that was especially customized to our personal tastes and requests.

Our stay in Argentina was expertly organized and timed – we enjoyed a perfect balance of the pace and energy of vibrant Buenos Aires with the nature and escape of breathtaking Puerto Iguazu. We also greatly appreciated all of Analia’s brilliant insider tips on the best local restaurants and must-visit sights. Eureka Travel Team went above and beyond to ensure that our experience abroad was optimized in every way – from the charming boutique hotel accommodations to the convenient private transportation and tour arrangements, we felt uniquely cared for and pampered. Furthermore, at any given time, Analia and her sister Cecilia were very accessible and responsive – it is clear that they are not only highly professional and knowledgeable but that they genuinely care about their clients.

Thanks to Analia and Eureka Travel, we returned from Argentina with countless new precious memories and a deep appreciation of its unique history, diverse culture and profound beauty. For any and all future trips to South America, we would wholeheartedly entrust Analia and the Eureka Travel Team with all of our needs.
