Holidays in Argentina

A frenetic melting pot of vibrant culture and dramatic terrains. Exploring with us can mean anything from galloping on horseback over sweeping pampas to mingling with the lively locals in Buenos Aires.

Sophistication and adventure lie side by side in the vast and varied nation of Argentina, home to a diversity of expansive grasslands, high mountain ranges, and an abundance of authentic and culturally rich estancias.

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!
