Northern Argentina

12 days from £4365 per person

Argentina is rightly famed for its love of dance, food and wine. This tour of the north of Argentina covers the city of Buenos Aires, the wine producing region of Mendoza and some nights in an estancia to enjoy the country life. As their winter (our summer) makes southern Argentina quite harsh to visit, profit from the milder climate of the north in this indulgent tour.

Route: Buenos Aires – Mendoza – San Antonio de Areco – Buenos Aires

Itinerary Highlights

The home of the tango, Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan capital city with a vibrant nightlife. The central Plaza de Mayo is lined with stately buildings including the presidential palace.

In the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the vineyards of Mendoza produce the world-class Malbec wines. Luxury haciendas provide accommodation, wine tastings and fine food.

North of Buenos Aires, the area surrounding the town of San Antonio de Areco is excellent cattle country and the traditional estancias offer horse-riding, relaxation and great steaks.
