Patagonian Glaciers, Endless Pampas and Cool Cities

– perfect for sophisticated trailblazers and culture junkies!

 

Argentina is a vast and varied land, studded with outstanding natural wonders and endowed with one of the world’s hot-list cities.

From the Tropic of Capricorn to the tip of Antarctica, Argentina encompasses a staggering diversity of terrains, from lush wetlands and bone-dry Andean plateaux to the end-of-the-world archipelago of Tierra del Fuego. Map

Its most well-known landscapes are the verdant flatlands of the Pampas and the dramatic steppe of Patagonia, whose very name evokes windswept plains inhabited by hardy Gauchos.

Argentina offers something for every visitor – not everyone dances the tango, is obsessed with Evita or gallops around on a horse. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself longing to return to explore the areas you didn’t get to see on your first visit. Learn more…

Testimonial:
My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Argentina, and since we like going off the beaten track and being independent travellers, Christine organized all our requests and also made some excellent suggestions and additions – whether on remote Estancias [ranch] in Patagonia or fabulous wineries in Mendoza.
This is the 3rd time we have had Christine help make an adventure holiday everything we’d hoped it would be – and cannot wait for the next one! More...

Argentina, MendozaTOP

Uncorking Mendoza

The wineries of Mendoza lie in the beautiful foothills of the Andes Mountains, an ideal area for grape cultivation and wine production. Many of Argentina’s finest vineyards are found here and visitors are warmly invited to try the fruit of their labour.

The city of Mendoza is an oasis amid a desert-like high plain. Just 5% of the province is cultivated, the rest is a desert landscape, receiving 8 inches of rain per year. To combat the low levels of rainfall, Mendoza has developed an intricate system of aqueducts, dykes, and irrigation canals. As one travels through the region one is often surprised by the greenery pf the tree-lined streets of Mendoza city, and the vast expanses of vineyards in the outlying wine country.

Winds from the Pacific Ocean travel over the Andes Mountains and descend into the plains of Mendoza blowing a dry, warm heat into the province. The annual average temperature is 32ºC (90ºF) in summer and 10ºC (50ºF) in winter, making it an ideal destination for sun-seekers and travelers looking to enjoy the open air.

Our tailor-made experiences may include:

  • Overnight in a relaxing hotel, situated amidst a vineyard
  • Visits to various wineries, including cellar tours and tastings, where you may design your own wine blend
  • Biking along the wineries
  • Excursion to the high peaks of the Andes
  • Evening gastronomy tour “The Skies of Mendoza”
  • Epicurean delights, with reservations at Michelin-star restaurant and meals at the chef’s table

Tour Cost: on request
Group Size: min. 2 passengers
