Inclusions
Day 1

Bienviendos a Argentina! Upon arrival into the international airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel where the rest of the day can be spent at leisure.
Overnight: Buenos Aires

Day 2
Buenos Aires Sightseeing

Often labelled the ‘Paris of South America’, Buenos Aires, or simply BA, is a seductive mix of elegant architecture, characterful residents and fantastic entertainment options. This morning join a scheduled city tour taking in the Neoclassical Metropolitan Cathedral, the unusual dusty pink Government House and the history-packed Plaza de Mayo. Head to the neighbourhood of San Telmo where street performers gather to display the sensuous dance of tango, and continue to La Boca, a colourful suburb popular with local artists. Wander the attractive streets of Palermo until you reach Recoleta and the famous cemetery of the same name.
Overnight: Buenos Aires  |  Breakfast

Day 3
Tango in BA

Enjoy a day at leisure to explore Buenos Aires your own way – wander the city’s many distinctive barrios on the hunt for colourful street art or head to the markets for some souvenir shopping. Prided as a literary city, Buenos Aires has a number of fabulous book shops worth checking out, often housed in revamped historical buildings.

Later in the evening you will be collected from your hotel for a scheduled transfer to Café de Los Angelitos for a night of love, passion, madness and glamour with a traditional tango show. Born in the brothels of the 1920s, Argentine tango is a completely improvised dance and attracts both the old and the young.
Overnight: Buenos Aires  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Days 4-5

Buenos Aires – Iguazu Falls. After breakfast this morning transfer to the airport for your flight to Puerto Iguazu, your base for exploring the magnificent Iguazu Falls. Straddling the border between Argentina and Brazil, the Iguazu Falls are composed of over 250 separate cascades. Upon arrival a scheduled transfer will take you to your hotel, and later you will join a scheduled tour of the Brazilian side of the falls, walking along catwalks that allow you to see the torrents of water at their most impressive.

On day 5 enjoy a scheduled full day excursion to the Argentinean side of the falls. A number of walking trails are available bringing you in front of or above the rapids. You’ll also see the dramatic Garganta del Diablo or Devil’s Throat, an awe-inspiring display of natural power.
Overnight: Iguazu Falls (Argentina)  |  Breakfast x 2

Days 6-7

Iguazu Falls – Mendoza. On day 6 a scheduled transfer will take you to the airport for your flight to Mendoza, the wine capital of Argentina. With striking snow-capped peaks visible on the horizon and an alluring combination of top-class dining and vibrant nightlife, Mendoza is the perfect place to base yourself for trips to the surrounding vineyards. Here you will join a scheduled tour of the Wine Route. The valleys around Mendoza are primarily farmland producing delicious olives, almonds, cherries, plums and of course, wine. Touring two wine cellars observe how wine is made, from the picking of the grape to the bottling of the final product, with time for a cheeky glass or two! Spend day 7 at your own leisure further exploring the area.
Overnight: Mendoza  |  Breakfast x 2

Days 8-10

Mendoza – Bariloche. Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before transferring to the airport for your flight to Bariloche in the south of Argentina’s Lake District. Resting on the slopes of a dramatic massif and facing Nahuel Huapi, Bariloche enjoys an enviable setting. Upon arrival a scheduled transfer will take you to your hotel. Over the next three days you are free to independently explore Bariloche and the surrounding lakes. Spend some time getting to know the alpine style town and its quaint chocolate shops or head for the hills and partake in outdoor activities ranging from mountain biking to horse riding.
Overnight:   |  Breakfast x 3

Day 11

Bariloche - El Calafate. After breakfast take a scheduled transfer to the airport for your flight to El Calafate, the starting point for excursions to one of Argentina’s most famous natural wonders – the Pertio Moreno glacier. On arrival, a scheduled transfer will take you to your hotel. Remainder of day free.
Overnight: El Calafate  |  Breakfast

Days 12-13

Measuring 30km in length, the monstrous Perito Moreno glacier is a jagged mass of crevasses and towering columns of ice. It’s also unusual in the sense that it is actually growing in size and constantly moving forward. Today enjoy a full day scheduled excursion beginning at Brazo Rico where you will be able to spot floating icebergs and continuing with a nautical safari on Rico Lake for spectacular views of the ice walls.

The following day offers a chance for you to continue exploring the southern sector of Parque Nacional los Glaciares independently or enjoy some downtime at Lago Argentino. Other options include a full day tour to the Bosque Pertificado La Leona, a petrified forest with fossilised trunks and dinosaur bones.
Overnight: El Calafate   |  Breakfast x 2
