Our experts will carefully and meticulously tailor your foray across Argentina, a sizeable country that is some 2,200 miles from north to south. Opportunities for adventure and exploration are endless, including hiking in the spectacular Lake District, wine-tasting at the glorious and abundant vineyards of Mendoza or driving in the surreal and otherworldly Puna de Atacama.

Perito Moreno National Park, Road to Pampas, Pampas, Argentina

Riding bareback with gauchos on Argentinian pampas

I held on tightly and at times closed my eyes as my horse galloped across the pampas.  I trusted the gaucho and surrendered to the feeling of being out of control and it was totally worth it! Exhilarating and such fun, and I was well rewarded with a glass of Argentina’s finest Malbec and the most delicious fillet of beef cooked asado style.
