Highlights

Discover Nature in Argentina

Arrive in Buenos Aires and discover the city’s historic hot spots before heading out to rural Córdoba. Learn to lasso calves, play polo and ride the ‘dancing horse of Peru’. Here, you can discover the waterfalls and wildlife-rich areas of the Sierras Chicas. Next, your Argentinian journey takes you to the famous Iberá Wetlands. Home to over 350 species of bird and many fascinating mammals and subtropical fish, this is a paradise for birders, nature lovers and fishing enthusiasts alike. Discover this incredible landscape on foot, on horseback and by boat to capture the adventurous spirit of the gauchos of old.  

UK – Buenos Aires

Maximise your time with an overnight flight to the capital of Argentina.

Buenos Aires

Touch down in Buenos Aires, where a member of our team transfers you to your hotel. Once you’ve settled into the ultramodern 1828 Smart Hotel, take a walking tour to get acquainted with the capital. Discover the fascinating stories behind the Alzaga Unzue Mansion, the Brazilian and French embassies, Nuestra Señora del Pilar Church and La Recoleta Cemetery. You can also check out the many high-end shops you pass on your route. 

Buenos Aires

Today is set aside for you to explore at leisure. The fashionable neighbourhood of Palermo Soho is full of cool cafes, cosy bars and designer stores. Amble lazily up the tree-lined streets, enjoying whatever interests you most. Alternatively, spend some time relaxing at your hotel. 1828 Smart Hotel boasts an exclusive roof terrace with a vertical garden and stylish pool, where you can relax in comfortable furniture and drink in the incredible cityscape views.  

Buenos Aires - Córdoba

After a series of exciting city experiences, take the short flight to Córdoba. Your stay at Estancia Los Potreros, a charming working farm, offers the rare opportunity to ride on the famous Peruvian Paso ‘dancing’ horse. There’s no better way to explore the wildlife-abundant Sierras Chicas than on horseback. This is a chance to leave all traces of the 21st century behind and immerse yourself completely within the natural world.  

Córdoba

Here, you can sample the gaucho way of life. Canter over the hillside, taking dips in natural rock pools and visiting remote habitations. Back at the ranch, help round up calves to protect them from puma and take part in polo, an important local passion. Nature walks take you to hidden waterfalls and far-reaching viewpoints, where wildflowers and rare birds are all around. It isn’t all hard work though – enjoy relaxing at the marvellous outdoor pool and peaceful veranda.

Córdoba - Posadas

Fly to Posadas near the border to Paraguay. Your next hotel is an exclusive A&K Favourite set on the banks of Parana River. Explore the hotel’s 14 hectares of rare flora with a specialist guide or head into the wilds of the Iberá Wetland. As well as the hundreds of birds which give these wetlands their reputation, keep your camera ready for incredible animals like the brown-snouted caiman and neotropical river otter.

Posadas

Hotel Puerto Valle hosts an amazing array of activities. Take the Monkey Trail to search for the noisiest treetop resident – the howler monkey – while there’s every chance of coming up close to capybara and marsh deer. At nearby Yacaré Porá caiman farm, discover the secrets of caiman conservation. Birdwatching, fishing and boating excursions are also unparalleled here, while you can also head out on horseback as you continue to hone your gaucho skills.

Buenos Aires

After the short flight back to Buenos Aires, spend the rest of the day at your leisure. Revisit your favourite restaurants, shops and attractions. This is also a good opportunity to pick up souvenirs from the many bustling markets and traditional handicraft shops. 

Buenos Aires - UK

Enjoy a tasty local breakfast at the hotel before your transfer to the airport and flight back home. After so many eye-opening experiences in the natural world, you’ll never forget the rambling lifestyle of the gaucho.
