Argentina Travel Tour Highlights
This incomparable program offers a stunning journey along two of the most beautiful countries on the continent, with a spectacular passage by boat through the Lake District of the Andes Mountain range that separates them. Begin with three nights in the modern city of Santiago, where you will tour the city’s impressive monuments, including the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, La Moneda, El Centro and San Cristobal Hill, where you’ll have a panoramic view of the city with the snow-capped Andes cordillera quietly resting in the background. Included in the Santiago segment is a full day excursion to Viña del Mar and Valparaiso, the historic port that has funiculars to the residential areas surrounding the bay. Also included during your stay in Santiago is a full day excursion to the wine region for a visit to Concha Y Toro and Santa Rita wineries, where you will learn first-hand the process of wine distilling. Next, travel to Puerto Varas in the Lake District for a single night. This is one of Chile’s most beautiful regions, with snow-capped volcanoes, ancient forests and deep, blue lakes. The following morning, journey by road and boat across All Saints Lake to the tiny mountain retreat town of Peulla. The following day, continue your journey across the border into Argentina, ending the journey in the mountain resort town of Bariloche. This northern region of Patagonia is full of snow-capped mountains and alpine forests, some of Argentina’s most breathtaking scenery. Enjoy a boat ride on the Nahuel Huapi Lake and visit the ancient forests of Victoria Island. Next, fly to Iguazú Falls for a two-night stay, where you will visit the range of 275 waterfalls that spans nearly 3 kilometers along the borders of Brazil, Argentina & Paraguay. From Iguazú Falls, fly to Buenos Aires for three nights, where touring highlights include the various historical neighborhoods of the city, visits to some of the local art galleries, a tango show, and a trip into neighboring Uruguay. The trip concludes with a full day at leisure with a guide and driver available to take you on last minute sightseeing or shopping outings as you wish.
