Buenos Aires, Patagonia and the Pampas - Three Argentinian Gems

Your Argentinian adventure begins in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires. The Argentinian capital is filled with wide Paris-like boulevards, giving it a European feel, and is overflowing with wacky and wonderful neighbourhoods that brim with South American life and culture.

Next up is Patagonia, known for endless dramatic peaks, an array of amazing wildlife and an abundance of glorious glaciers. The Perito Moreno glacier is a dazzling beauty. It vibrates, rumbles, creaks and cracks as ice blocks break into the lake below, becoming instant icebergs.

San Antonio is the next stop along the Camino Real, an ancient royal road linking the capital to Peru.
The area is filled with immense, fertile plains stretching from Buenos Aires province to Cordoba province. The landscape is sparsely populated with few trees scattered across the grassy plain. It is perfect for a nice retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Your Accommodation

With a name like Legado Mitico - mythic legacy – this hotel resonates luxury. With a fireside library, breakfast lounge and leafy patio, the hotel resonates with Palermo Soho charm. This is the part of Buenos Aires that shimmers and shines from dawn until dusk.

Eolo Relais & Chateaux is a wonderfully remote haven in perfect Patagonia. This ranch is just as you'd image it: lost in the middle of nowhere, deep in the boundless plains, with a 360° view of the never-ending horizon, where on a good day you can see Torres del Paine in the distance.

La Bamba de Areco is a luxurious hub in Las Pampas. The hotel started life as a traditional ranch which was transformed into a guest house to celebrate the golden era of the gaucho, the South American cowboy. Think vine arbours, fireplaces, saddlery leathers, beautiful linen and panoramic views. La Bamba is the ultimate place to take a step back in time.

Flight to Buenos Aires

Your overnight flight to Buenos Aires will leave the UK this evening.

DAYS 2 & 3

Buenos Aires

On arrival, transfer to Buenos Aires and stay at the Legado Mitico in Palermo Soho for two nights, a hotel that is a reflection of the neighbourhood: chic and trendy. Take the time to savour city life, sitting down with a cortado (espresso with added milk) and a medialuna pastry at Cafe Tortoni, with its green marble-print curtains and red leather seats. Stroll around the Plaza de Mayo and visit Palacio Barolo – built between 1919 and 1923 as a tribute to Dante's Divine Comedy – before bargain hunting in the antique shops of Plaza Dorrego in San Telmo. Delve into the past at the Museo Historico Nacional or visit the Cathedral Nuestra Senora del Buen Aire, Pope Francis's church when he was Archbishop of Buenos Aires. Walk around the docks of Puerto Madero, the meeting place of the city's gilded youth and wonder at the tango dancers in the milonga dance clubs.


Buenos Aires - El Calafate

Transfer to the airport to catch a flight to El Calafate, the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park. Experience the feeling of being at the end of the world, with a four-night stay at Eolo Relais & Chateaux. Watch a natural show at Lago Argentino and its Andean glaciers: Upsala, Spegazzini, Onelli, and Mayo. You may also spot black swans and flamingos on the horizon.

DAYS 5 to 7

El Calafate

The itinerary includes a private tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier with a guide. The immense 200ft tall glacier stretches for three miles along the Lago Argentino. As you traverse the forest, you'll walk across various footbridges offering astounding views of the glacier. You'll also spend a day cruising aboard a catamaran on Lago Argentino, which is home large Andean glaciers. You'll cruise among the icebergs to the largest one of all, Upsala. You'll then head back to shore for a walk to Los Perros Waterfall, from where there is a magnificent view of the Rio Caterina Valley.


El Calafate - Buenos Aires - San Antonio de Areco

Transfer to the airport and flight to Buenos Aires. It's then off to San Antonio de Areco to settle in at the La Bamba de Areco ranch. You'll quickly find your feet in the property, where the pace of life has so much appeal. Men come and go with their horses, which adds to the warm and free atmosphere - the true spirit of the Pampas.

DAYS 9 & 10

San Antonio de Areco

San Antonio de Areco has really preserved the gaucho spirit. This can be seen in a visit to the Ricardo Guiraldes museum, the author of 'Dom Segundo Sombra', the pinnacle of gaucho literature. Whether it's riding or sitting in horse-drawn carriage rides, horses are essential to the way of life of local people and their guests. You simply have to listen to stories about the traditions of the land, mate (a caffeine heavy hot drink) calabash bowl in hand; to get a lesson on how to use bolas (a type of throwing weapon made of weights on the ends of interconnected cords), a lasso or a facon, a large knife which is also used for cooking. You may even see a singing contest between payadores (itinerant singers).

DAYS 11 & 12

San Antonio de Areco - Buenos Aires - return flight

Transfer to Buenos Aires Airport for your return flight home, landing the following day.

A la carte

Rojo Tango

From the streets and shady bars to the largest stages in the world, tango has come a long way. It is still danced on the sidewalks of San Telmo or La Boca, but its choreography has also changed dramatically, which has made it all the more impressive. The brilliant staging, the musicians and the dancers (who are fully engaged when they play 'at home'), the great food: it all combines to make this show a model of its kind and an absolute must for visitors to Buenos Aires.

Option - A dinner and show


Visit Chile's Torres del Paine National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site boasting stunning landscapes, which is typical of the Magallanes and Última Esperanza provinces in the south. It feels like this is where the world ends. The National Geographic ranked the park as the world's fifth most beautiful place.

Option - Four days and three nights leaving from El Calafate.
