ABOUT THE ITINERARY

Your Ultimate luxury holiday to Argentina begins at the mighty Iguassu Falls, before travelling south to wetlands of the Iberá. After experiencing the jungle and tropics of the north-east of the country, you will continue south to the capital.

After a stay in the cosmopolitan capital of Buenos Aires, where you’ll enjoy a live tango performance, you’ll fly to El Calafate and the spectacular Los Glaciares National Park. An incredibly photogenic region dominated by glacial lakes, granite peaks and the staggering Perito Moreno Glacier.

You’ll then gradually work your way north, to the picturesque Argentine Lake District, before continuing to Mendoza, where you can spend your days sampling fine Argentine wines and exploring the area on foot, horseback and by bike. Your time in Argentina ends in the Pampas at a beautiful and historic Estancia La Bamba de Areco, before flying home.

From San Ignacio you will continue south to Puerto Valle. A beautiful hotel on the edge of the Iberá wetlands and overlooking the Paraná river.

Over the next day and a half you can enjoy the different activities available from Puerto Valle, which include a wonderful sunset boat tour at one of the nearby lagoons.

Day 6-8

BUENOS AIRES

On day 6 you will fly south to the Argentine capital.

A half day city tour, led by a private guide, will take you through the districts of San Telmo, La Boca and Palermo, taking in sights like the striking Casa Rosada in the Plaza de Mayo and the imposing Palace of Congress. The tour concludes at the Recoleta Cemetery, resting place of Eva Peron, where you can learn more about the colourful history of Buenos Aires. In the evening you’ll enjoy the Rojo Tango Show, a lively performance featuring an impressive orchestra, plus a delicious three-course dinner, at the Faena Hotel.

EL CALAFATE

After Buenos Aires and on day 9 you’ll fly south to El Calafate to stay in a luxury mock-estancia overlooking the huge, turquoise Lago Argentino. You’ll be perfectly positioned to explore Los Glaciares National Park, one of Argentina’s most beautiful areas dominated by glacial lakes, snow-capped mountains, primeval forest and sheer granite rock walls. Mountain biking, mini-trekking, horseback riding and birdwatching can all be arranged.

A full day tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier, the centrepiece of the Los Glaciares National Park, is likely to be the highlight of your visit. Fed by the mighty Patagonian Ice Cap, the Perito Moreno Glacier is known as the ‘living’ glacier due to the fact that it is advancing rather than retreating. You’ll be able to walk along wooden catwalks to view this mighty monument from various viewpoints, and you should also witness blocks of ice loosening from the glacier and dropping dramatically into the waters of the lake below.

Stay: Three nights at EOLO – All-inclusive

Over the next two days you will have a full day privately guided visit to Isla Victoria, a picturesque island in the middle of the lake where there are a number of idyllic trails. After a delicious picnic lunch, you will take the boat back across the lake to your hotel.

THE WINE REGION

Leaving behind the wonders of the Lake District, on day 15 you will fly to Mendoza at the heart of the wine country. You will be transferred to the stunning Cavas Wine Lodge, a high-end winery with the Andes mountains offering a stunning backdrop.

Famously the birth place of the gaucho, the area is incredibly flat and perfect for riding and polo. In fact the estancia has its own polo team and if you’re in season you will be able to watch them play. Ride, relax by the pool, visit the historic town of San Antonio de Areco or enjoy a delicious asado. Unwind as your Argentine adventure comes to an end.
