AU$ 2,015

Experience two sides of Argentina’s beauty on this 6-day vacation. In Buenos Aires, savour the beautiful architecture, storied history, and romance of Tango. In Patagonia, experience the majesty of the wild as you venture through the Andes Mountains and cruise up to the face of Perito Moreno Glacier.


This 6-day Argentine vacation takes you from the Tango halls of Buenos Aires to the glaciers of Patagonia. It features moderate accommodations, shared tours, and is a quick introduction to the main attractions of Argentina.

Your journey begins in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina and its most beloved city. On your first afternoon, head on a city tour that takes you to many of the city’s most popular sites, from the Colon Opera House to the Palace of Congress and through the aristocratic mansions of San Telmo and finally to La Boca and the buzzing waterfront of Puerto Madero. The next day, take a full day to explore the Parana Delta, the most important in South America after the Amazonia. Cruise along a series of rivers and creeks only 30km from downtown and discover the many tiny islands bursting with greenery and wildlife.

From Buenos Aires, fly down to El Calafate, the gateway to Argentina Patagonia. Based out of Estancia Alice, you’ll head on a full-day exploration of the wilderness of Patagonia. Head up Mt. Frias to reach viewing platforms with incredible views of Lake Argentino, Mt. Fitzroy, and even Torres del Paine in Chile. On the way back down the mountain, you’ll head through a lenga forest before returning to Estancia Alice. The next day, head into Los Glaciares National Park to come face to face with one of the world’s most famous glaciers. Venture into the Patagonic Andean forest and make for Perito Moreno Glacier, cruising up to the north face of the glacier to watch ice calve from its icy heights.

Return to Buenos Aires for one last night and take in the city’s most popular art form: Tango. Head to Gala Tango for a dinner and show, where you’ll enjoy gourmet Argentine flavours and bold wines as you marvel at the romance and allure of Tango. At the end of your stay, connect to the airport to continue to your onward destination.

Day 4

Calafate

An early start takes you to one of the largest and the only advancing glacier in the world, as well as the biggest attraction at Los Glaciares National Park, a 600,000-hectare protected area covered by an ice mantle. We will start by penetrating the Patagonic Andean forest and make a first breath-taking stop at "Curva de los Suspiros" (Curve of Sighs), where we will enjoy a first view of this incredible natural wonder. When we approach the glacier, we will walk down the catwalks to approach the Glacier and admire from different panoramic points this wonderful creation of Mother Nature.

If luck is with you, you will see parts of the wall of ice "calve" off and fall into the lake. The Perito Moreno Glacier is an enormous glacier located in the Los Glaciares National Park. It is one of the most important tourist attractions in Argentina due to its size and accessibility. It is less than two hours by bus from El Calafate while viewing platforms and trails make the visit and the observation easy and pleasant.

Los Glaciares was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1981 and since then the glacier has only increased in popularity, regularly making the news when another ice bridge forms and collapses. The glacier is also part of the Southern Patagonian ice field, which is the third largest frozen body of fresh water in the world. This day will be an unforgettable experience, a once in a lifetime delight.

Part of the adventure will include a short cruise near the face of the glacier. This tour departs daily from Puerto Moreno, by the National Park's trails at the Iceberg's Channel. From that point, the tour boat navigates close - but not too close - to the glacier's North wall where you can admire its size.

Return to Calafate.
