You’ll travel independently, but occasionally you'll join an international group.

Our first Argentina holiday covers all of the highlights of Argentina in three weeks. Your travel adventure kicks off in stylish Buenos Aires, from where you’ll fly south to the ‘end of the world’ in Patagonia. Here you'll sail amongst icebergs and glaciers. At El Chalten, you’ll lace up your hiking boots for a trek into the Patagonian mountains and some of the most breathtaking scenery you could ever imagine. From Patagonia, you’ll fly north to spend a couple of days relaxing in the Lake District and go kayaking on a peaceful mountain lake. Next, it’s the Peninsula Valdes to spot penguins and whales. The best time to plan this Argentina holiday is from July to December, when migrating whales gather along the coast of the Peninsula. Your Argentina itinerary ends at the majestic Iguazu Falls in the rainforest.
