Exclusive Experiences you should not miss
Buenos Aires: experience the Gaucho culture
Buenos Aires, as the capital of Argentina, will be your gateway to the country. You will be delighted by the top-notch restaurants the city has to offer, and the eclectic architecture that will make you feel in Paris.
But for sure one experience that you should not miss, is to spare a day or two to go out of the city, into the deep Pampas, to learn about the Gaucho culture. Not only will you learn a lot about Argentinian economy, culture and traditions, but also you will get the chance to go horse-back riding with the gauchos and enjoy a traditional “asado”, the Argentinian BBQ.
It is possible to stay overnight in a ranch, with all the services to make your stay a very comfortable one.
Mendoza: Stay in a luxury boutique hotel set within its own vineyard
With constant sunshine, Mendoza is prime vine growing territory. The varieties of wine grown here are some of the best the world has to offer. And if we talk about a luxury boutique hotel set within its own vineyard, nothing can go wrong.
Cavas Wine Lodge is one of the most luxurious and romantic accommodations that Argentina has to offer. Each room has impressive views across the vineyards to the Andes. Even if you do not stay here, you can opt to come to The Cavas restaurante that offers a seasonal menu with organic products. Of course, paired with the best wine.
For the best wine harvests, visit Mendoza between March and April.
Iguazu Falls: a a natural wonder of the world on luxury
One of the most ecologically diverse regions in the world, this area is home to thousands of plant species, hundreds of bird species, and animals such as howler monkeys, ocelots and tapirs.
Located on the border between Argentina and Brazil, the Iguazu Falls are one of the world’s most awe-inspiring sights.
The majority of the 275 waterfalls sit on the Argentinian side, where a well-planned system of trails and walkways allows visitors to experience every angle of the falls. One of the most astonishing parts of the Falls is the Garganta del Diablo, or ‘Devil’s Throat’.
It is possible to visit the Brazilian side on a day-trip, so you can choose to stay in the middle of the jungle in the Argentinean side, from where you will immerse yourself in nature and live a truly unique experience.
Glaciers in El Calafate: High-end Tourism at its best
If you have to choose only one destination for your luxury vacation in Argentina, then El Calafate and its glaciers is a top pick.
The still-advancing Perito Moreno glacier is the highlight, being 30 kilometers long, 5 kilometers wide and up to 60 meters high in parts. Take a boat trip around the base or get the chance to go hiking on the glacier if you are more adventurous.
Regarding accommodation, El Calafate is very well prepared for high-end tourism. Estancia Cristina, which can be accessed by crossing the Cristina Channel of Lago Argentino by boat, offers a truly stunning setting. The journey to the lodge allows excellent views of the Upsala Glacier, one of the largest in the region, and once you arrive you are treated to views to the mountains.
Food is excellent: Patagonia lamb at its best. There are many activities on offer to enjoy the spectacular surroundings, including hiking, 4×4 excursions and horse-riding.
Definitely, a place you will remember forever.
Treat yourself at the End of the World
If we continue traveling further South in Argentina, we get to Ushuaia, also known as “The End of the World”, as it is the last city before the Antarctic. Views are astonishing: it is the only part of the country in which the Andes mountain range meets the sea.
You can enjoy a helicopter ride to have bird-eye views across the Beagle Channel, and if you are adventurous, there are several hiking trails to explore, and you can even ski in winter (June, July and August).
