Crossing Argentina

Duration
11 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,012

This Argentina tour uniquely departs from Lima, giving you a chance to sample Peru and Brazil before taking in the exquisite natural sights of Argentina, and sizzling Buenos Aires.


This 11-day trip focuses on the best of Argentina in detail, including the mighty Iguassu Falls and Buenos Aires, the pulsing capital and spiritual home of tango.

Touch down in Lima, Peru, staying near the airport for your first night. This gives you a chance to sleep off the flight, but if you’ve travelled well and time allows, take a cab into town and take note of things you’d like to visit when you return to Lima at your trip’s end.

Fly on to the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls and take a half day tour. The Iguassu River cascades over 275 falls, spanning almost two miles on the border between Brazil and Argentina. On the Brazilian side, you can also opt for a helicopter ride to see just what Eleanor Roosevelt meant by “Poor Niagara.” In the evening, enjoy a colourful cultural show, with a scrumptious traditional Brazilian buffet. The following day, cross over to the Argentinean side and visit the awe-inspiring Devil’s Throat, a 70-metre drop where several branches of the river come crashing together. Follow the catwalks along the river and through the forest, and embark on the Upper Trail Walk to enjoy the jungle at its most serene. In addition, you’ll take a speed boat trip along the lower part of the river, covering two kilometres of rapids on your way to another close-up view of the Devil’s Throat.

Fly to Buenos Aires, the home of tango, often described as the most European of South American cities. Take in a spectacular tango show over dinner, the perfect entertainment to get you in the city’s unique mood. The following day, a half day city tour takes you to see the Plaza de Mayo, the Casa Rosada, the colonial-era Cabildo, and many more highlights. After you’ve ticked off these main sights, it’s time to explore the neighbourhoods, including historic San Telmo, and colouful La Boca, the setting of a million Buenos Aires postcards. Go on to Palermo, a residential neighbourhood that is home to gorgeous parks, the city zoo, and the planetarium, before ending your tour in upscale Recoleta, where you can shop to your heart’s content at fashionable boutiques, or people watch from a sidewalk café.

Cap off the day learning the secrets of Argentine cuisine. You’ll have a hand in making empanadas, provoleta cheese with sliced chorizo, and fresh chimichurri – all accompanied by some Malbec and finished off with some sweet alfajores, of course! And don’t worry if you didn’t get to see everything. You’ll have another full day to explore Buenos Aires before flying on.

Your last Argentinean stop takes you to the dazzling colours of the Quebrada de Humanhuaca. This valley has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, the reasons for which will be clear as soon as you lay eyes on it. But this is also an important centre for traditional customs and beliefs, where centuries old artistic and agricultural practices remain common today.

Before flying home, return to Lima, staying in the popular neighbourhood of Miraflores. Here, you’ll enjoy a first-hand Peruvian food experience, learning how to select the best ingredients, and prepare authentic ceviche at a leading seafood restaurant. Of course, no visit to Peru is complete without a Pisco Sour, and you’ll have the chance to make your own before lunch at a traditional tavern. The rest of your day is spent at the Larco Herrera Museum, which tells the story of Peru from pre-Colombian civilizations through to the present day.
