Argentina

Encompassing vast areas of wilderness smattered with natural phenomena; the mighty Iguazu Falls emerge majestically from the northern boundaries of the Atlantic rainforest, to the raw beauty of the immense frozen Perito Moreno Glacier in the far south of Patagonia.

An efficient network of air routes criss-cross the huge distances allowing for easy arrival to an array of stunning lodges, from the wine valleys in the northern Andes to the lakes and lower ranges of the Andes in Patagonia. 

Argentina exudes warmth and simple hospitality. This is the land of Malbec and steak but you will also discover the sweeter side of this nation with their love of pastries and desserts emanating from French and Italian heritage. Argentina’s fabric is mystical, bold, sophisticated and yet simple, and all can be sampled from both a short or extended visit.

Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world with an incredibly diverse climate ranging from subtropical to sub antarctic. As a rule of thumb, being located in the southern hemisphere, seasons are reversed with the main Austral summer being between the months of November to March. Winter (June to August) are generally mild but with dull and reduced light in the north of Argentina but cold with plenty of snow and frost in the south (perfect for winter sports).
Iguazu Falls are an exception located in a sub-tropical climate with high temperatures and rainfall throughout the year, however, always bear in mind that winter throughout the whole of Argentina can be prone to 'cold snaps' where an icy cold winter wind from the ice fields in the south can bring frost at night in the north.

Porteño Coffee and Culture tour (2hrs) - Buenos Aires Cafés and bookstores

From €73/person (+ local costs)
Buenos Aires

Experience this enchanting side of Buenos Aires with a scholar guide on a two hour relaxed walking tour. Be immersed in the authentically vintage and resplendent surroundings of the Ateneo Grand Splendid bookstore, not only to marvel at the opulent theatre of books (declared one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world by Brian Howard, Senior Writer at National Geographic) but to absorb the cultural significance of books for Porteños (residents of Buenos Aires). Porteños consider their book stores as sacred as their churches. A holy site of wooden shelves and paper that resembles a maze of thought. 

The Buenos Aires Cafés are as sacred as their bookstores and just as grand! Tones of Paris and Vienna are evident throughout the cafés of the traditional business neighbourhoods of the city. The opulent Café Tortoni has barely changed since 1858 and is a fascinating example of the wealth that grew from the European merchant pioneers. They have been left completely intact and a stop for coffee to delight in the service and atmosphere (not to mention wonderful coffee and pastries) will be a memorable moment in this wonderful city.

Hidden history - El Zanjon de Granados

From €12/person (+ local costs)
Buenos Aires

Located in San Telmo, the oldest district in Buenos Aires "El Zanjón” is internationally recognised as an archaeological calendar of the city.

Excavations of the mansion which dated back to 1830 led to the uncovering of the ancient Zanjón (ravine). The mansion was built for a wealthy family with six slaves in 1860 but by 1890 had been turned into a tenement. By 1985 it had been abandoned and walled off, with its ground floor four meters deep in debris. Now fully restored, elegant new steel and glass elevators transport visitors to and from the illuminated depths of the tunnels and ravines of El Zanjón. It is a magical space where poetry, history and myth coexist an important urban archaeology project and highly recommended.

We can arrange transfers and a recommendation for lunch around the visit.

An evening at the Opera

Buenos Aires

Begin your evening with a pre-concert dinner at Tomo Uno, a traditional and sophisticated restaurant with an exceptional menu.

Then continue for just a short walk to the Thetro Colón, where you have the opportunity to see an opera, ballet or concert, in the magnificent auditorium. 

It is considered one of the ten best opera houses in the world by National Geographic, and is acoustically considered to be amongst the five best concert venues in the world.
