Buenos Aires, El Chalten, El Calafate, Iguazu Falls

This private luxury tour of Argentina is perfect for our more adventurous active travelers. Experience the vibrant city of Buenos Aires combined with some of the most spectacular landscapes in Argentina.

Begin in Buenos Aires. With your own private guide and driver, visit the city's most evocative neighborhoods such as San Telmo, La Boca, Palermo and Puerto Madero, and see highlights around the city such as the Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada and Recoleta Cemetery. Visit local museums according to your interests, such as the Evita Museum or MALBA, a museum of Latin American art. One evening, attend a top-rated tango performance at an intimate, upscale dinner theater. Also enjoy time to take advantage of the exciting contemporary art and design scene, world-class restaurants and great shopping. All touring is flexible and can be customized to incorporate special interests such as art, tango, polo, Jewish history, family activities, adventure, gastronomy and more.

Continue into the remote wilderness of southern Patagonia to the village of El Chalten. During your stay, enjoy guided hikes in this spectacular region to see glacier-fed lakes, the iconic stone towers of Mount Fitz Roy, and the pristine forests and native wildlife of Los Huemules Natural Reserve. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange fly fishing in nearby lakes and rivers.

Next, transfer to El Calafate to experience southern Patagonia's vast open steppe and the impressive peaks, glaciers and pale blue lakes of Los Glaciares National Park. One day, visit magnificent Perito Moreno Glacier—one of the few advancing glaciers in the world—to see (and hear!) icebergs calving from it, and perhaps enjoy a shared cruise or opt to take a guided trek on top of the glacier itself. Another day, enjoy exciting lodge-based activities, such as hiking, mountain biking, birdwatching and horseback riding.

Return to Buenos Aires and if desired, take a private excursion to San Antonio de Areco and an estancia in the pampas to learn about gaucho culture and experience the traditional estancia lifestyle. Alternatively, take a private excursion to Tigre and the Parana River Delta to enjoy a relaxing private cruise on the canals of this "rural Venice," passing gardens and upscale vacation houses.

Conclude at Iguazu Falls, one of the most spectacular natural attractions in the world. Stay in a private villa at Awasi, an exclusive luxury lodge in the rainforest. With your private guide, venture onto catwalks to reach the most breathtaking views of Iguazu Falls, including the thundering Garganta del Diablo ("Devil's Throat"). Depending on timing and interests, relax in your private plunge pool at Awasi or enjoy additional lodge-based activities such as kayaking on the river, hiking and birding in the rainforest, visiting a local indigenous community and taking an excursion to the UNESCO-listed ruins of Jesuit missions.

Testimonials

This was truly the trip of a lifetime…In New Zealand, all six of us caught trout, went horse riding, helicoptering, jet boating…all the while being cared for by the most wonderful people ever.
~ P.F., Gwynedd Valley, PA

Peru was absolutely outstanding. Our guide gave me the encouragement and help I needed in climbing to the very top of Huayna Picchu – an accomplishment of which I will always be thankful!! 
~ P.C., Smyrna, GA

We had a wonderful time in Asia!!! Highlights in Indonesia were the airplane view of the volcanoes on Java, walking each level of Borobudur by ourselves with no one else around, the trek to Selogriyo and its breathtaking terraced rice fields…
~ T.T., New York, NY
