    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. There are kayaks, bikes, horses for guests to use at the hotel and all kinds of wildlife to see in the surrounding area, including caiman, marsh deer, capybaras and numerous tropical birds.

The tour concludes at the Recoleta Cemetery, resting place of Eva Peron, where you can learn more about the colourful history of Buenos Aires.

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.

    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.

    Famously the birth place of the gaucho, the area is incredibly flat and perfect for riding and polo.
