Journeys through the country’s famed wine region and pit stop at private vineyards under the shadow of the Andes. Our local insiders will be eager to share with you wine lists that feature the best of the region. Head further north to feel the thrilling force of the powerful Iguazú Falls. With more than 275 breathtaking cascades plunging down lush cliffs, it is a sight to behold. The best place to stay over is in the national park itself, steps away from the falls and watch the sun setting down on the grand natural wonder. Treat yourself with many excursions, such as an electrifying boat ride or walk above the falls through paths surrounded by tropical flora, butterflies and exotic birds. Do you dare to brave the catwalk that extends 3,600 feet over Devil’s Throat, a roiling cataract that marks the border between Argentina and Brazil?
Before you head home there is yet another natural wonder to witness – the mammoth glaciers. We will jet you over to a luxury lodge in the Patagonian Steppes where the Perito Moreno Glacier slowly calves into Lago Argentino. Cross the Rico Arm by boat and fix your crampons to start climbing across the glacier. Get a new perspective of this geological phenomenon as you look across to blue lagoons, gaping crevasses and giant sinkholes. Not to worry, you will be accompanied by expert outdoor guides along the entire way! Trek the frozen wilderness for a couple of hours and after a unique picnic experience on the glacier, hike for another hour before you can put up your feet on the boat back to civilization. Later that evening, once the adrenaline’s worn off, kick back in the tasteful surrounds of your hotel with a glass of Mendoza red. Get some well deserved rest and wake up the next day with the biggest smile. Continue by boat to a remote wasteland ranch set against the lushly glaciated mountains of the most remote Patagonia and spend some time wandering, fishing, riding horses, and gazing at the soaring mountains guarding the Patagonian Ice Cap.
