Cordoba and Central Sierra Holidays: an Overview

A short flight north-west of Buenos Aires into the geographical centre of Argentina is the large but pleasant city of Córdoba, capital of the province of the same name. One of Cordoba's key holiday attractions is its setting, at the foot of the 'Sierras Chicas' - the rolling hills or 'little mountains' of the central part of the country, and its temperate climate. Between the pancake-flat pampas and the Andean spine that divides Argentina and Chile, this is gaucho territory too, although the horsemen and cattle-herders here have very different terrain to deal with from their pampa or Patagonia counterparts.

A short flight west of Buenos Aires, Córdoba is a horse riding holiday heaven; with rolling hills and excellent estancias. Cordoba can also be reached via direct flight from the Chilean capital Santiago, and is home to the country's oldest university, founded by the Jesuits in the early 1600s, and to beautifully preserved colonial architecture. We can also arrange stays at beautiful estancias where you can ride out with gauchos.
