ITINERARY INSPIRATION

CLASSIC ARGENTINA

The size and diversity of Argentina means it is somewhere that you can visit three, four or even five times and still have more to uncover.
CLASSIC ARGENTINA

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

In our ‘classic’ itinerary we have focussed on some of our favourite areas, for those looking to see the star attractions of South America’s second largest country.

Your holiday starts in Buenos Aires, a sophisticated city with a focus on style, fashion and art and home to some wonderful restaurants and bars. You will then head south to natural wonders of Patagonia and the Lake District, visiting the hugely impressive Perito Moreno Glacier en route. From the south you will work your way north, for a few days relaxation in the stunning wine region around Mendoza, where the back-drop of the Andes is the perfect accompaniment to a glass of Malbec.

Your penultimate stop is the north-west of the country, an area home to some stunning natural scenery, including deserts, salt flats and rocky canyons.

To end your stay in Argentina, you will visit one of the newly announced natural wonders of the World, the hugely impressive Iguassu Falls on the border with Brazil. 2.7km wide and with over 250 waterfalls, it’s a fitting stop to end.

Buenos Aires | Argentina | The Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 1 – 2

BUENOS AIRES

Arrive into Buenos Aires international airport where you will be met and driven to your hotel in the chic neighbourhood of Recoleta, home to a number of sophisticated shops, restaurants and galleries.

Although known as the “Paris of South America”, the city has a purely South American flavour, exemplified by world class steaks and very lively performances of the famous tango. A city tour will take you through La Boca, San Telmo and Palermo; prominent sights include Eva Peron’s grave in Recoleta Cemetery and the beautiful El Pilar Church.

Stay: Two nights at HUB Porteno – bed & breakfast

EL CALAFATE

On day 3 you will fly to El Calafate, the entry point to Argentine Patagonia. During your stay you will enjoy a private tour to the mighty Perito Moreno Glacier, 5km wide and one of the few glaciers in the world to still be advancing. You’ll take in the spectacularly blue lakes of Los Glaciares National Park and explore the Patagonian Icecap, an area of immense glaciers topping the Andean Mountains. Trekking expeditions, horse riding, mountain biking and fishing can all be arranged.

On day 5 take a short direct flight to Bariloche – an attractive destination in the Argentine Lake District. Your hotel boasts a superb location on the shores of Lake Gutierrez, backed by soaring mountains and surrounded by beech forests. You’re in the Nahuel National Park here, the ideal place to go trekking, horse riding, mountain biking, fishing, sailing, paragliding and skiing in season. You’ll also notice a distinct ‘continental’ flavour in the Swiss-style chalets, chocolate shops and fondue restaurants.

Stay: Two nights at Estancia Peuma Hue – full board

Mendoza | Argentina | Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 7 – 9

THE WINE REGION

Now it’s time to sample some of Argentina’s finest vintages. On day 7 you will fly to Mendoza in the country’s wine region, to stay at a prestigious vineyard. During your stay a full day visiting three specialist wineries is included, along with a paired tasting lunch.

From Mendoza you can indulge in some wine tasting or you can browse through the city’s museums – including, of course, the National Wine Museum – and enjoy outdoor pursuits such as rafting, mountain climbing, hiking and horse riding, plus skiing in the winter.

Stay: Three nights at Entre Cielos – bed & breakfast

Argentina | Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 10 – 11

SALTA

On day 10 you will fly north, to the charming city of Salta. Salta is the entry point to a number of attractions in the area, including salt flats, adobe villages, wonderful rock formations, vineyards and some beautiful colonial architecture.

Over the next two days you will stay in a delightful boutique hotel in the centre of the city and explore the attractive old-town with your guide. Known for its spring like climate, you will see the neoclassical architecture and beautiful plazas which make Salta so popular. You will also have a full day visit to the impressive Salinas Grandes, huge salt flats to the north of the province. En route you will visit the historic town of Purmamarca, which is flanked by the Cerro de los Siete Colores (Hill of Seven Colours).

Stay: Two nights at Legado Mitico – bed & breakfast

Important: some of the attractions around Salta are over 3,000m above sea-level.

Iguassu Falls | Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 12 – 14

IGUASSU FALLS

On day 12 a short flight from Salta takes you to the world famous Iguassu Falls, the largest collection of waterfalls on the planet.

Your hotel is inside the national park on the Argentine side of the Falls and has incredible views towards the falls. During your stay you will be taken on a private tour of the Argentine National Park, visiting the hugely impressive ‘Devil’s Throat’. Helicopter rides, boat trips and other activities can be organised too, but you may prefer to relax around the hotel’s marvellous infinity pool, which looks straight out towards the falls.
