Set in the fashionable streets of Palermo Soho, Legado Mitico offers luxurious boutique accommodation. The design and decoration of the hotel is more traditional and classical than many of the more modern offerings in this area. The hotel draws on the rich historical culture of Argentina with the rooms individually themed around famous figures, such as Carlos Gardel and Evita. Each is decorated with great attention to detail using period antique pieces, along with more modern luxurious comforts such as flat screen televisions, jacuzzis (in some rooms) and comfortable king size beds. The cultural theme extends into the communal areas with a small library in the lounge where the more inquisitive guest can read all about the historic figures that inspire the decoration of the room. Aside from the large lounge area there is also a sun deck and jacuzzi for guests to enjoy. Service is of a high standard and the hotel’s location excellent.
A wonderful, historic property set on a quiet street in the heart of Recoleta. Hub Porteno has a slightly different feel from the larger hotels in this area, with a feel more akin to a home or a private members’ club, with a very personal level of service from the concierge (who, rather than sit at a reception is just a phone call away). The building has been lovingly restored and the attention to detail comes to the fore in the quality of the furnishings, all of which are original antique pieces, or produced more recently by local artisans. Specially cured leather lines the walls of the sitting room and lounge, hand crafted mirrors handing on the walls of the spacious rooms. The centre piece is the hotel’s restaurant, Tarquino, which has quickly become one of the most famous in the city, for the top chef (trained at the world-famous El Bulli) who brings high concept fine dining techniques to traditional Argentine food to delicious and inventive effect. Breakfasts are a delight, enjoyed in the glass roofed dining room with trees swaying overhead. Hub Porteno is a hotel that, instead of an initial ‘wow’, will win you over time with it’s understated detail and quality. All in all, a class act.

Located actually on the shore of the Beagle Channel, Los Cauquenes is one of the best located and most comfortable options available in Ushuaia. Though a large hotel, it has been constructed from wood and stone in sympathy with the natural surrounds of the area. The hotel has 54 spacious rooms. Given the location we feel that it’s definitely worth choosing a channel view room. Facilities include a spa and pool area both enjoying stunning views out across the channel. The hotel is around 7km from the town of Ushuaia itself, though the hotel’s own restaurant is excellent.

The breakfast is very good, and sets you up nicely for a days exploring these remote surrounds.
Enjoy your stay in southern-most city in the world visiting national parks, taking cruises and experiencing the wildlife.
Upon arrival in the park, start a 7 km trek (about 3.5 hours walk) to a wonderful scenic point overlooking Lake Roca, Lagunas Verde and Negra, Rivers Ovando and Lapataia and Lapataia bay. Hiking through this beech forest we will be able to look for the Magellanic woodpecker, the largest in South America, Austral parakeets, black-chested buzzard eagles and Andean Condors.
After lunch and a briefing, kayak the Ovando River, which flows, into the Green Lake, for one of the most beautiful views of the park. During this easy downstream ride, we will enjoy the crystal-clear, quite waters into Lapataia Bay. Along the way you may encounter sea birds flying over, looking curiously at us: sea petrels, albatross, and steamer ducks, among others. Relax and enjoy the early southern sunset behind the mountains at the end of the southernmost reaches of the Panamerican Road, at the end of the world, before transferring back to Ushuaia.
Board a comfortable catamaran to sail into the Beagle Channel, taking in the passing scenery of mountains and the Martial Glacier. Round the historic lighthouse Les Eclaireurs and spot rocky islands with seals, sea lions, cormorants, giant petrels and many other species of sea-birds jostling for space.
This, one of the two narrow-gauge tracks left in Argentina - the Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino- used to ferry prisoners from the island’s prison into the National Park to fell and chop trees. The “Trencito de los Presos”, the Little train of the Prisoners departs from the Fueguino railway station with the stationmaster’s shrill whistle and steams slowly along the Pipo river until it reaches the Macarena waterfalls. A native Indian camp can be viewed at this point, recreated on the basis of evidence provided by today’s descendants of the tribes as well as documentation left by the early settlers. The train continues into the National Park with its stunning views of Monte Susana, the Martial Glacier and the large swamp where the relics of the prisoners’ logging tasks can still be seen.

Private transfer from Buenos Aires to the Pampas
One of Argentina’s best boutique Estancias for experience and elegance, you can’t really get more authentic, intimate and refined than La Bamba de Areco. Positioned at the heart of the Pampas plains, 120 kilometres from Buenos Aires and but a few minutes drive from one of the oldest towns in Argentina, San Antonio de Areco, this estancia is not only perfectly placed but captures the rugged romance of the gaucho whilst still being impeccably stylish and well-run. Avenues of plane trees lead you through the ranch’s lush parklands and paddocks to the typically 19th-century corralled casco (main house) painted in proud Vermillion red and white – permitting in parts a couple of vines to steal up its walls. This was once an important private home along the Camino Real (Royal Road). Its eleven rooms are all done up in a smart, farmhouse style that is classically rural but with a contemporary lift. These open up onto the ranch’s shaded wraparound patios, perfect for relaxing, watching the ponies and where you can dine in summer. La Pulperia is the estancia’s own authentic gaucho inn converted to a separate lounge bar and boutique, and of course then there’s the array of different equestrian activities and excursions to choose from.

Unlike many of the larger more touristy Estancias close to Buenos Aires, Candelaria del Monte has excellent personalised activities including: horse riding, taking part in the traditional gaucho lifestyle, wine tasting or simply relaxing by the pool. The food is excellent traditional fare with most ingredients grown and reared on the Estate.
