Itinerary

Day 1 : Arrive Argentina – Buenos Aires

Your Argentina vacation commences with an arrival into Buenos Aires. This afternoon, enjoy an introductory walking tour of the most elegant and fashionable district of the city, Recoleta. The influences from the Spanish, British, Italian and French become tangible as you walk the culturally-glowing streets. A highlight is Recoleta’s artistic cemetery, the final resting place of Evita Perón and other prominent famous characters of Argentine history.

Day 2 : Buenos Aires

Embark on a comprehensive tour of this impressive city, which combines the atmosphere of an old European town with the features of a Latin American capital. Acquire a deep understanding of its characteristics, its history, its architecture, its culture and its best stories. A highlight is a behind the scenes visit of Teatro Colón, one of the most important opera houses in the world, due to its acoustic excellence and its high architectural value. This evening, enjoy the exclusive, sophisticated tango dinner show at Rojo Tango. Buenos Aires is the birthplace of the tango, a dance of intimate separation and common rhythm, combining both an elegant reserve and an exuberant passion.

Day 3 : Buenos Aires

A day at leisure allows you to independently explore the city. Optional activities and outings can also be arranged including museum and art gallery visits, shopping escapes, private tango lessons, culinary experiences such as a cooking demonstration, learning how to play polo, day outings to the countryside (immerse in the culture of the gauchos at historic estancias in the Pampas) or to the eclectic and riverside northern suburbs of San Isidro and Tigre, and much more.

Day 4 : Buenos Aires – Iguassu Falls & Misiones Forest

Fly to the unbelievable and spectacular Iguassu Falls. Often heralded as the most beautiful falls in the world, upon seeing this UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site for the first time, first Lady Eleanor Roosevelt herself reportedly exclaimed “Poor Niagara!” Vastly larger than Niagara with its 275 different cataracts and 3-mile spread, the mighty, 266-foot high Iguassu crashes thunderously between Brazil and Argentina’s lands, 269 feet into the Iguassu River.

Day 5 : Iguassu Falls & Misiones Forest

Experience a comprehensive tour of Iguassu Falls from the Argentina side to appreciate the falls’ main attractions such as the Upper Circuit trail, offering magnificent panoramic view of the falls; the Lower Circuit trail, where a series of strategically-placed catwalks afford several views of the falls and close proximity to the cascades and lush, surrounding forest; the Nautical Adventure Boat trip, in which a boat from a small pier located at the base of the Lower Circuit trail will take you under the falls – excitement and showers guaranteed!; and the main highlight – the Devil’s Throat, a gargantuan, 262-foot high, 49-foot wide horseshoe-shaped gorge that plummets into the river with a deafening roar.

Day 6 : Iguassu Falls & Misiones Forest – Bariloche & the Patagonian Lake District

Fly to Bariloche, a picturesque ski town on the southern shore of Lake Nahuel Huapi in the National Park of the same name. It is located in one of Northern Patagonia’s most beautiful regions of the country, better known as the Lake District. Amidst grandiose snow-capped mountains, crystal clear waters and dense forest of cypress and coihue trees, it is known as the Switzerland of Argentina as even the architecture is reminiscent of Europe.

Day 7 : Bariloche & the Patagonian Lake District

Enjoy a sailing excursion on spectacular Nahuel Huapi Lake, and visit 2 unique forest habitats – Victoria Island and the famous Arrayanes Forest whose natural beauty is said to have inspired the film “Bambi.” It is a forest formation unique in the world with centenary specimens. In Victoria Island, you can enjoy several lookout points and hiking trails that let you take in spectacular views.

Day 8 : Bariloche & the Patagonian Lake District

A leisure day allows you to explore the area independently or arrange for optional tours such as scenic day excursions along the Seven Lakes Road or along the Small Circuit passages of the Andes. For those into adventure sports, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, trekking, hiking, kayaking, fly fishing, and more all await you.
