Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Buenos Aires and the Iguazu Falls are year round destinations, with pleasant temperatures. January and February are usually the hottest months whilst the winter months (June and July) tend to be cooler and wetter.

You can expect plenty of sunshine almost all year round in Mendoza, with a similar dip in temperatures in winter months. 

Patagonia is best visited from November to March when temperatures are milder but visitors should be prepared for strong winds and changeable weather at any time. It is worth considering travelling outside this time, especially rewarding in April (for autumn colours) or October (for spring flowers) because winds can drop significantly and there are fewer visitors in the National Parks. May to September is winter and many hotels in Southern Patagonia close for the season.

  2. Days 1-3: Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires and the Pampas, Argentina

    Welcome to one of Latin America’s most captivating cosmopolitan cities. You’re staying at Palacio Duhau in the historic Recoleta neighbourhood, one of the city’s most upmarket barrios and a place to see and be seen. Stroll the elegant boulevards, stop for a drink in a heritage bar and simply sit and watch the world go by. We’ll curate a private city experience for you so that you leave no Buenos Aires stone unturned. Head out with one of our expert guides to explore the many different neighbourhoods, each with their own distinct pizzazz.

  3. Days 3-6: El Calafate, Southern Patagonia, Argentina

This luxurious and remote ranch-style lodge offers an awesome wilderness immersion coupled with first-class service. The jewel in Argentine Patagonia’s crown is the Perito Moreno Glacier – one of Earth’s only advancing glaciers. Embark on a lake navigation to the south wall of the glacier to gain an unrivalled perspective on this immense wonder from the water. Or don your crampons and tackle the glacier surface on foot for an icy adventure like no other. There’s one thing we’re sure of, the sumptuous spread waiting for you back at Eolo will have been well and truly earnt. Tuck in and enjoy!

    Accommodation: Eolo (3 nights)

  4. Days 6-9: Bariloche & the Lake District

    Your Argentinean adventure continues to go from strength to strength as you fly to the lush greenery of the Lake District. Literally translating as ‘Place of Dreams’ in the native Mapuche language, your base for the next three nights is Estancia Peuma Hue. Perched on the edge of Lake Gutierrez among 500 acres of pure wilderness, this enchanting eco-lodge is sure to steal your heart. Head to the top of Campanario Hill for a natural window into this panoramic region, where thick green forest is dotted with vast deep blue lakes and ice-capped peaks dominate the horizon. Venture deep into the enchanting native forest of Llao Llao Nature Park or Nahuel Huapi National Park to soak up the region’s bewitching beauty in all its glory. Or step back in time on the Andes hiking trail as you walk the oldest trekking path in Patagonia, following in the footsteps of the Palotinos priests on their pilgrimage to the refuge of Cerro Lopez. On your last evening, bid farewell to the Lake District with a sunset boat trip on the water. Bask in the silence and toast the scenery with a fine wine.

    Accommodation: Estancia Peuma Hue (3 nights)

  5. Days 9-12: Mendoza Wine Region

    Fly to Mendoza where the true indulgence begins. You’ll be staying for three nights at Cavas Wine Lodge, where exquisite yet discreet service is delivered against a backdrop of the mighty Andes Mountains and endless rolling vines. Delve into the boundless vineyards of the region with a full day private tour of the Valle de Uco wineries. You will visit three different vineyards and discover the secrets of the wine making process from families who have dedicated their lives to the trade for generations. From full-bodied Malbecs to a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc and even, perhaps unexpectedly, a Malbec Rosé, you’ll taste a huge variety of different wines and don’t worry – we’ll keep you well fed too. Another day you could head out on foot or horseback with a picnic to devour under the vines.

    Accommodation: Cavas Wine Lodge (3 nights)

  6. Days 12-14: Iguassu

    Straddling the border between Argentina and Brazil, your next stop is the awe-inspiring spectacle of Iguazu Falls. After a morning flight, we’ll transfer you across the border to your hotel on the Brazilian side of the falls. The spectacular Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas is the stand-out option at the falls as it offers unrivalled access to the national park on the Brazilian side after it’s closed to other visitors. Unwind in the tropical grounds of the property with a drink, and wait until the crowds have dispersed to soak up the spray of the falls with few others around. The following day, you will feel the full force of Iguazu as you spend the whole day engulfed in the Argentine side, which is blessed with about 80% of the falls. An intricate network of paved trails and catwalks wind their way around the falls and bring you within touching distance of the water. The undisputed highlight is the Devil’s Throat, where several cascades join together to create an unimaginable thundering display. You could while away the whole day simply wandering these revitalising walkways, or for an even more immersive experience, take a boat ride right under the falls or treat yourself to a helicopter flight overhead to end your holiday on a true high.

    Accommodation: Belmond Hotel das Cataratas (2 nights)

  7. Fly home via Buenos Aires
