Alluring

Argentina

Argentina continues to inspire with its charming wealth of natural surroundings.

Buenos Aires, the Parisian-like capital and the birthplace of the tango, brims with culture, history, architecture and entertainment. Beyond, the grassy plains of the The Pampas unfold, offering views of historic cattle ranches where the myth of the “gaucho” on horseback is still alive.

In the north, the mighty Iguassu Falls, with its 275 different cataracts and 3-mile spread, is undoubtedly mesmerizing. While Salta and The Andean Northwest showcases nature working its magic with weird and wonderful rockscapes, vineyards, and salt plains. And in the west, Mendoza is Argentina’s premier wine-growing region set on rolling countryside with the imposing Andes as the backdrop.

Headed to Patagonia? The world-renowned Península Valdés in the Atlantic Patagonia region spoils wildlife enthusiasts with cavorting whales, penguins, sea lions and elephant seals. Alpine town Bariloche awaits at the heart of Northern Patagonia’s Lake District, with stunning scenery of the surrounding lakes and mountains, and world-class outdoor activities such as hiking, fly fishing, golf, kayaking, rafting and mountain biking. Enveloped in pristine and unspoiled Patagonian scenery, El Calafate and Ushuaia are spectacularly rugged in terms of landscapes and climate. The hulking Perito Moreno Glacier is no doubt the showstopper of the region.

This is our Alluring Argentina, an enamoring mosaic of uncharted paths, brilliant colors and warm welcomes.

From Our Guests

I have nothing but good things to say about Alluring Americas. You developed a good itinerary for us on short notice and revised it extensively at the last minute when I made a mistake about the departure date. Our guide in Buenos Aires was wonderful. She was always pleasant, on time and very knowledgeable. Our guide at Iguassu Falls was of the same caliber. We love Argentina and are looking forward to coming back. We will certainly give you a call when we do.
