Argentina Experience

Buenos Aires is Argentina’s capital and most cosmopolitan city. At its heart is Plaza de Mayo, overlooked by the 16th century Metropolitan Cathedral. In the east is Casa Rosada, the iconic pale pink Presidential Palace. Other attractions include National Museum of the Cabildo and the splendid Avenida de Mayo, famous for its fine buildings. In the North are the green, affluent barrios of Retiro, and Palermo with its popular Botanical Gardens. 

For city’s European history, walk through Recoleta and its cemetery with ornate graves of Eva Perón and other Argentinian luminaries. Travel to the shore of Lake Nahuel Huapi for a chairlift tour to Cerro Campanario for grand views. Continue past Lake Moreno and Mount Lopez to Bariloche, known for its lakes and beautiful scenery. Visit Iguazu Falls, and take a boat trip to San Martin Island and along the canyon of the river to admire the whole system of more than 270 different falls.

Overnight: Hotel of your choice.

Option 1: The Riverside Town
A delightful way of spending the day is to take a boat ride through the waterways in the nearby Tigre town; an experience that can only be described as a mixture of the Thames and the Amazon.

Tigre Town – In the early 19th century, the Belle Epoque left its mark with the ornate architectural style, endowing the Tigre town with an eclectic and fun personality, reminiscent of the first holidaymakers and their European ways. Weekend houses of imposing grandeur, white stuccoed fronts and manicured lawns lie among palm trees on one island, neighbour to another where untidy wooden structures perch on stilts and platforms under which play ragged brown-skinned children.  English cottages stand next to Italian villas, azure-painted shacks and run-down boathouses while through the water glide skiffs, canoes and barges.  

Option 2: The Estancia Rosario De Areco
On this full day tour you will experience life on an Argentine ranch and indulge in a mouth-watering barbecue or 'Parrillada', as the Argentines call them, with typical folk music and dancing.

El "Rosario De Areco", only 115 km away from Buenos Aires, is a typical colonial farmhouse that has been completely recycled and refurnished, with distinct family atmosphere. The main house, built in 1892, is surrounded by a 14 hectares park that includes stables, two swimming pools, and fully acclimatized recycled barns for year-round entertainment. You can stay overnight or simply enjoy a day of relaxing in real farm atmosphere.
Overnight: Hotel of your choice

Located on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi, in the midst of Nahuel Huapi National Park, Bariloche is surrounded by dense forests, alpine lakes and 12,000-ft mountains.   Enjoy an afternoon drive along the Nahuel Huapi coastline for visiting the Llao Llao Peninsula and the Panoramic point with stunning views of the Nahuel Huapi Lake, and the snow-capped Andes, including an interesting walk through the dense Patagonian beech.

Getting There Flights from London to Buenos Aires take 14 hours, or around 16 hours via a European city. British Airways offers the only direct service from the UK (Heathrow) to Buenos Aires. The alternatives are indirect Iberia and Air Europa flights, both of which involve changing planes in Madrid (sometimes with a lengthy gap). Argentina’s Ministro Pistarini International Airport (code EZE) is located in Ezeiza about 22 kilometres from Buenos Aires. 

When to go Argentina can be divided into four broad climatic regions: the north-eastern plains, central Argentina (Pampas), western Argentina (Andes) and southern Argentina (Patagonia). Remember that the seasons in Argentina are the reverse of those in the Northern Hemisphere.

Summer, December through February, is the best time to visit the extreme landscape of Patagonia and the southern Andes. Winter (Jun-Aug) is the best time to visit Iguazú and the Northwest, when the rains and heat have subsided; but spring (Aug-Oct) is also pleasant, when the crowds have cleared out. It is also the prime time to visit Buenos Aires when the purple jacarandas are in bloom. A great time to see Mendoza or the Lake District is in the fall, when the foliage pops—and there are fewer crowds.
