At a glance

Argentina is the perfect destination for a family who likes to spend a lot of time outdoors together. This action-packed adventure will see you exploring some of the country’s most beautiful spots.

Your journey begins in Buenos Aires where you’ll get a taste for Argentinian life at a hands-on empanada making workshop. Learn about different fillings and take your newly acquired skill home to impress your friends. From there it’s off to Iguazu Falls where you’ll have time to both explore the Brazilian side on your own, as well as take a privately-guided tour of the Argentinian side. You’ll head out on a wooden walkway, but there are more strenuous options if you fancy a bit more of a trek.

The next stop is Bariloche, where you’ll get to explore on foot and by boat. Here a highlight is a visit to the Nahuel Huapi National Park and a hike along the Hidden Falls trail. You’ll be treated to some of the region’s most spectacular flora and fauna. While here you can also make a splash with a spot of rafting along the stunning Manso River. It’s the perfect way to experience the untouched beauty of the park.

Head to El Calafate where the impressive Perito Moreno Glacier awaits. You’ll get to witness the landscape changing before your eyes as massive chunks of ice break free and crash into the lake below. Take a walk through the Los Glaciares National Park, and take a boat trip to get a better view of the glacier itself.

As this exhilarating adventure rounds to a close, you’ll return to Buenos Aires for a night during which you’ll be treated to a rousing tango show and a delicious dinner. It’s a great end to a thrilling exploration of Argentina.

A stunning tour of Iguazu, where you get a chance to really get up close to the falls. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and bring you by private vehicle to the entrance of the park on the Argentinian side. You'll then be taking the rest of the tour mainly on foot. Exploring the various wooden walk ways that lead through the national park close up to the many chutes of the falls. One of the most spectacular sites of the falls is the 'Devil's Throat' which sees the largest flow of water. In order to visit the Devil’s Throat, the visitor must board the train at the Main Station or at the Cataratas Station, close to the Upper Circuit. For those who love trekking there is the 1km (0.6 mile) long Sendero Verde (Green Trail) that connects the Visitors Centre to the Cataratas Station and to the Upper Circuit. Once you are at the Devil’s Throat Station you will have to walk on a flat catwalk built over the Upper Iguassu River. This catwalk crosses several islands. Once you get to the end of the catwalks, you will be surprised by a strategic lookout point resting on the side of the gorgeous Devil’s Throat.

Bariloche Hidden Falls tour Bariloche Hidden Falls tour

Some of the most remote wilderness of Nahuel Huapi National Park can only be accessed by water. Such is the case of the still seldomly visited Tristeza Inlet and Hidden Falls trail. Exploring both in a boat and on foot, this excursion takes you into a glacially carved inlet and the lush Valdivian Forest with plenty of opportunities to watch the local fauna and the most emblematic flora of the western side of the Park.

Manso River rafting Manso River rafting

This morning you'll head down the famous Route 40 to the edge of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, driving along the path of the Rio Manso to reach ‘John’s Ranch’ base camp. Here, you'll have a safety briefing with a qualified local guide, get kitted out in wet suits, and get ready to enjoy a calmer section of the Manso River. The early stages of this rafting adventure are relatively calm, with the occasional rapid adding some excitement to the journey. Sailing through narrow canyons, lush vegetation and grand gorges, this rafting excursion is the perfect way to witness wildlife in its natural environment, undisturbed by the raft, unlike many forest hikes or nature walks. The guide will find a suitable resting point for the raft, before you and the team disembark and take the short, steep trail up to the waiting support vehicle. Change into some dry clothes, load up all the gear, take lunch (not included) and finally return to Bariloche.

 Perito Moreno Glacier excursion Perito Moreno Glacier excursion

Perito Moreno glacier is the park’s most famous and imposing resident, which stretches three miles wide and 200 feet high above Lake Argentino. Watch as the evolving landscape takes shape in front of you, with huge chunks of ice breaking free from the main body of Perito, booming into the lake below and sending a mesmerising shower of water hundreds of feet into the air. The tour begins at El Calafate, setting off on a comfortable one-hour drive, which leads you to Los Glaciares National Park, with the first breathtaking glimpse of Moreno coming into view as you travel towards Lago Argentino; the unforgettable scenery further enhanced by the imposing Andean Mountains in the background. You will have an opportunity to uncover the National Park's wildlife, with a walk among their native surroundings. A guided hike through the National Park will offer the chance to spot Andean condors, buff-necked ibis, black-chested buzzard eagles, ashy-headed geese and many other unusual species known to inhabit the myriad of scenic trekking trails which dissect the rolling hills and plains surrounding the lake.

Perito Moreno Glacier boat trip Perito Moreno Glacier boat trip

Take an unforgettable cruise across Lake Rico. Climb aboard the a boat for a trip of a lifetime and be prepared to encounter giant icebergs that have been dramatically carved off the face of the Perito Moreno Glacier. This one-hour trip takes you 6km into the lake before the first glimpse of the glacier comes into view. As you reach the Icebergs Channel, the boat comes to a halt ensuring that you maintain a safe distance from the glacier. This ever-changing natural wonder continuously produces icebergs throughout the year, guaranteeing an impressive crash into the lake at some point during your visit.

You'll continue to sail down its textured façade, providing a spectacular insight into the towering wall of ice and a unique perspective of this world-famous glacier. Photographers and nature lovers alike will savour the opportunity to encounter this iceberg in such spectacular style.
