Leisurely Argentina Holiday

The Ultimate 3 Week Holiday to Argentina, Taking in The Best Attractions,  Highlights & Scenery 

Our Leisurely Argentina itinerary takes in as many of Argentinas best sights, as possible over 3 action packed weeks. See the sights of Buenos Aires and the almighty Iguacu Falls, explore the Andean Northwest, drink wines in the vineyards of Mendoza and visit southern Patagonia including the Perito Moreno Glacier.

You will start in the tango filled streets of Buenos Aires before heading the see the almighty Iguazu Falls. After this you will head to one of Latin Routes favourite areas of Argentina - Salta & the Northwest. The Andes Mountains create some superb and dramatic scenery in this area but unlike Patagonia you will see red rock, almost desert like scenery here with cactuses and the odd huge salt water lagoon for good measure. It is almost like a scene from another planet!

After your adventure in the Northwest, you will head to the warm vineyards of Mendoza for 3 nights in the wine capital of Argentina before the holiday moves on to southern Patagonia. You fly to Bariloche for 3 days to explore the beautiful crystal clear Lake District, set against a dramatic backdrop of the snow-capped Andes Mountains.
