First stop, breath in the glory of Buenos Aires where you’ll find the cosmopolitan vibe of fashion, art and tango. Enjoy a lesson with a private instructor and by the evening of your visit, you’ll be dancing the great steps yourself, alongside the city’s most eloquent dancers. There is no dance more romantic and intense than this, and some say few cities. By day you’ll be given the Four Balconies Tour of a city so you can get under the skin of this great metropolis, from the balcony where Evita spoke to the masses, to the graveyard where graves are built as big as houses. Your home will for the next few nights will be the Moreno Hotel located in the trendy district of San Telmo.
the Argentine outback
The grand planes of the Estancia deep in the Argentine outback is the next stop on this tour, where you’ll come up close-and-personal with real life Gauchos, South America’s answer to cowboys. Ride alongside them on a cattle drive or sample a polo match in the great expanse of Pampas. Stay at the super exclusive Estancia Puesto Viejo.
take a walk on the wild side
We fly to the heart of the beautifully wild side of Argentina to Trelew the gateway to some of the finest wildlife on the continent. Sleep among the blissful sounds of nature at Rincon Chico. Immersed in this outpost of beauty you’ll be in easy distance of spotting whales, penguins, and our guides will take you to the best vantage points to get sneaky views of these shy animals. The town is steeped in history and one of the first European settlements in the country, still keeping the most curious of Welsh traditions. Our guides will show you a side few visitors see in the Welsh settlement of Gaiman, where you can sip afternoon tea and take a leisurely stroll in the nearby countryside. Rove among an area that exudes all the charm of a Victorian parish with chapels full of character, railway stations and cottages, all constructed in the rugged expanse of Argentina.
Go from one wilderness to the next and right to the heart of the legendary Ibera Wetlands and stay at the Posada de la Laguna. This was one of the ancient peoples most sacred spots, an intricate and fascinating waterworld that boasts some of the richest fauna in the country. We’ll show you the region in a different way, by leading you on horseback through secret trails. Our guides are qualified in showing you the very best wildlife here, taking you on an upcreek safari to spot the animals such as deer, howler monkeys, caimans and exotic colourful birds in their natural environment.
End the holiday at the spectacular Iguazu falls. We take you to both the Brazilian and the Argentinean side of these great waterfalls, made famous in the film The Mission, where Robert De Niro teeters over the edge while strapped to a crucifix. Fortunately you’ll be spared that ordeal, but the experience is equally as spiritual. Stay at the luxurious Loi Suites on the Brazilian side where you can see the falls in all their totality, but cross over to Argentina and it’s here you can be up close-and-personal, so close you can almost touch the water. One of the biggest thrills is walking over the suspended platform that traverses The Devil’s Throat, a gurgling, spitting, rampaging flurry of water so named because the deafening roar is what the sounds from the Gates of Hell are feared to be.
