dramatic glaciers, lively culture, wine tasting, lush landscapes of emerald forests, estancias

From cosmopolitan Buenos Aires to the dramatic glaciers and snow-capped peaks of Patagonia; from the arid provinces of Salta and Jujuy in the North and the lush, subtropical Iguazu Falls and Ibera marshlands to the azure lakes and emerald forests of the Lake District, Argentina’s beauty is matched only by her variety.

If you’re interested in rural life, you can experience the real Argentina at a traditional family-run estancia in the Pampas, home of the gaucho, or ride out and play polo at an estancia in the rolling sierras of Cordoba. Take time to visit vineyards. A holiday to Argentina is not complete without a wine tasting afternoon and sampling some delicious wine.

Throughout this huge country we have access to stylish properties that are well off the beaten track. We use experienced guides, who are chosen according to your interests – whether it’s wine, fishing, riding or even shopping.

Our tailor-made holidays to Argentina can be taken anytime of the year, our destination experts can advise when and where to go to suit any climate preferences.
All itineraries are individually designed, but as a guide, we can arrange a ten day holiday in Argentina (not including flights) from £4000 per person

Best time to go

Argentina can be visited at any time of the year, with the South of the country (Lake District and Patagonia) best from October through March and the North East (Corrientes and Misiones) best when less humid in May through September and the Andean altiplano areas of the North West (Salta and Jujuy) best also in the months of May through September.

Buenos Aires/the Pampas and the more central regions of Cordoba and Mendoza can fit in well with travel to the more seasonally extreme areas of the country. Argentina is very much a destination in itself but combines well for beach with neighbouring Uruguay or even Brazil and for landscape/adventure with neighbouring Antarctica, Chile, Bolivia and Brazil.
