Best day trips from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Buenos Aires is Argentina’s main transit hub, so you will find yourself coming and going a few times during your trip around the country. While the city of Buenos Aires has enough attractions to keep you busy for weeks, it is also a convenient base for several day trips.

Either if you want to head to the open countryside to dive into the gauchos’ culture, or if you prefer to explore the natural wonder of the Paraná Delta, in this article we will give you our recommendations of the 5 best day trips from Buenos Aires that you definitely should not miss!

1. Gaucho Day Tour to an Argentinian Ranch

If you could only choose ONE of the several day trips from Buenos Aires that you can select, this would be our top recommendation: tour the countryside and visit a typical Argentinian ranch. 

Not only you will get the chance to see the Pampas —the flatlands that make Argentina famous—, but you will also immerse yourself into the gauchos’ culture, allowing you to travel miles away from the city in terms of traditions, but only a short drive away that can be easily done as a day trip.

Explore the countryside of Buenos Aires and learn all about the gauchos and ranch life on the Pampas in an exciting full-day tour that includes visits to a historical rural town and silversmith museum, visits to a ranch, loads of food and wine, dancing, horseback-riding, gaucho horse skills display, and convenient pick-up and drop-off at your hotel.
