When Do You Want To Go?
Our Leisurely Argentina itinerary takes in as many of Argentinas best sights, as possible over 18 action-packed days. See the sights of Buenos Aires and the almighty Iguazu 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 our 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 almost desert-like scenery as well as the expansive Salt Flats.
After your adventure in the Northwest, you will head to the warm vineyards of Mendoza for three nights in the wine capital of Argentina before the holiday moves on to southern Patagonia. You fly to Bariloche for two nights to explore the beautiful crystal clear Lake District, set against a dramatic backdrop of the snow-capped Andes Mountains.
