Detailed Description

Your 10-day Argentina Patagonia tour blends the sophisticated colonial architecture of Buenos Aires with the awe-inspiring blue ice formations of ancient glaciers. Panoramic views of Patagonian cities sweep across turquoise waters and the steep descent of the Andes Mountains. Icy slopes and stunning beech forests brush up against secluded shorelines of distinctive fjords. Remnants of aboriginal tribes pepper national parks. Drift along the protected waterways of the southern sounds on a luxury cruise from September to February, and discover the captivating culture of Buenos Aires on a private tour. In this Patagonia travel package, the splendor of Argentina is unlike anywhere you have ever been.

You arrive in Buenos Aires, where your private transfer is waiting to greet you at the Ministro Pistarini International Airport. Your driver escorts you to an opulent hotel located in the luxurious neighborhood of La Recoleta. On your second day in Argentina, you return to the airport for your flight to El Calafate, located on the edge of Los Glaciares National Park. Your hotel overlooks the tranquil shores of Lago Argentina. Your guide leads you through Los Glaciares National Park, taking you along the walking circuit for unparalleled views of Perito Moreno Glacier.

The following day, you travel south to the southernmost city in South America, Ushuaia. In the morning, your guide leads you on a fabulous trek through the quiet scenic flora of Tierra del Fuego National Park. Upon your return to Ushuaia, you board a luxurious cruise ship at the port of the city, ready to take you out onto the Beagle Channel. The next day takes you along the Murray Channel and Nassau Bay, eventually reaching Cape Horn. Spend time on the shores of the Cape, and later you can explore the historic settlements and landscape of Wulaia Bay.

The ship passes through Garibaldi Fjord. Hike along the stunning forest landscape to reach spectacular viewpoints. You continue to Pia Fjord, where your guide leads you on an excursion to the face of Pia Glacier. The boat docks in Ushuaia and your private transfer escorts you to Ushuaia-Malvinas Argentinas International Airport for your flight to Buenos Aires. The city is magical, filled with endless energy and alluring culture. In the evening, you delight in a stylish dinner and tango show.

Your guide leads you on a private tour of the city, taking you through the distinct neighborhoods for which Buenos Aires is known. On your final day in Argentina, you can spend the early half of the day exploring the city or even venturing outside of town to visit a charming estancia (Argentinian ranch) or a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the banks of the Paraná Delta. Soon you will make your way to the airport for your flight home, but you could always extend your time in South America by venturing to Iguazu Falls or even Rio de Janeiro.
