16 night Classic Argentina itinerary from £6,750 per person (based on 2 sharing) and includes return flights, accommodation, excursions (as detailed), transfers and some meals.
With a total area of almost 2.8 million square kilometres, Argentina is eleven times larger than the United Kingdom and has a population of approximately 43 million compared to the United Kingdom’s 64 million. Within its 3,650 km length and 1,430 km width, you will find in Buenos Aires, the most sophisticated and European city in South America; at El Calafate the World’s third largest ice field; at Iguazu the most spectacular waterfalls in the world; in the northwest unusual landscapes, salt flats and vineyards; in Patagonia, the mighty Andes rising to 6,962 metres; in the lake district of Bariloche superb hiking; in Ushuaia, the southernmost tip, the gateway for cruises to Antarctica and, in the far northwest, the enormous Ibera wetlands.
Then, of course, this is home to the Tango and the gauchos and the enormous estancias. This was the country of Evita Peron, the birthplace of Che Guevara and passions run strong.
The ‘Classic Argentina’ itinerary will give you a flavour of this fascinating country. We have tried to build in some leisure time at the same time as enabling you to explore the main attractions and regions.
