Argentina Family Adventure

(12 Days – Travel Any Day)


Day 1 – Arrive
Buenos Aires On arrival in Buenos Aires you will be met and transferred to your chosen hotel for a four-night stay in this cosmopolitan and historical city.  
Overnight: Hotel of your choice (B)
Recommended: Park Hyatt Buenos Aires or Four Seasons.

Day 2 – City Tour & Tango
Buenos Aires This morning enjoy a half-day tour of this impressive city. Discover the cobbled streets and brightly painted houses of La Boca and the grand architecture in Plaza de Mayo. Continue to the exclusive neighbourhood of Recoleta, with its treelined avenues, fashionable restaurants, cafes and boutiques, not forgetting the famous cemetery that holds Evita's shrine.

Optional Dinner & Tango Show: This evening, enjoy exquisite cuisine and a spectacular dance display in one of the city’s oldest and finest tango venues. Housed in an elegant French style building with an exclusive marble bar, Gala Tango is bound to put you in the tango mood! As you arrive you are invited to learn some of the slick tango moves and enjoy a drink.

Day 3 – Optional Tours
Buenos Aires Today you will have a day at leisure to get to know the city better. Alternatively you can explore a riverside town or experience life on an Argentine ranch in the Pampas.

Option 1 – The Riverside Town
Full Day tour to the Tigre including a cruise in the Delta. 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.

A delightful way of spending the day is to take a boat ride through the waterways, an experience that can only be described as a mixture of the Thames and the Amazon.  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 (B)    
Recommended: Park Hyatt Buenos Aires or Four Seasons.

Among the 356 glaciers within the park, the Perito Moreno is the most outstanding, having a 2km long front and a height of over 60m above water level. Pieces of ice from the glacier crash loudly into the water below leaving glistening, deep blue icebergs twisting and turning in the lake.

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.
