An Argentinian holiday is one in which sophistication and adventure lie side by side. Few countries offer the same diversity as Argentina, unfolding landscapes of all kinds and all the seasons in a single holiday. By day, spend time in the saddle riding across the Pampas, or wading in the sparkling trout rivers of Patagonia. Hike the impressive slopes of the Andes or travel across the deserts of Salta. By night, take a seat at the table of a world renowned chef to drink the silkiest of red wines and savour beef, so tender, it would turn a vegetarian.

What to expect on your Argentina holiday
We plan our Argentina holidays carefully so as to minimise travelling and maximise on your adventure. Argentina is a big country. Some 2,200 miles from north to south with wildly differing terrain and culture at each extreme. There is excellent riding on private estancias. But if riding is not your forte, there is plenty of opportunity for walking in Patagonia or the Lake District. Alternatively, relax and drink wine in Mendoza. Explore Salta with its spectacular desert formations or drive further into the wilderness for an extraordinary experience in the Puna.
In addition there are vineyards, wildlife and wetlands to add to the mix of your trip to Argentina. Both food and wine are excellent and you can find small, sophisticated, privately owned hotels everywhere. Like its neighbour Chile, Argentina has a distinctly European feel in many parts which is instantly settling and allows for a very relaxed holiday.
Beyond the ordinary
- Blend your own wine at one of the vineyards in the Mendoza region
- Take a street food tour of Buenos Aires to make the most of the cuisine and learn to make some of the classic snacks such as empanadas
- Try a heli flight over Iguazu for a unique perspective of the falls
