Experience the dramatic contrasts in both climate and landscapes on this comprehensive circuit of Argentina’s northern half. This is a fantastic journey year round, including Jun-Sep when Patagonia is in winter and lodges may be closed. We love the diversity of this tour as you arrive in tropical rainforest, move across to dramatic arid desert of giant cacti and rock formations and then to lush vineyards and Andean peaks before a final stop in the chic capital.

Arrive in Iguazu Falls to marvel at the 275 separate falls that make up this incredible display on the border with Brazil and Paraguay, also home to exotic birds and mammals. Travel west to a region of dramatic canyons, salt flats and traditional Andean adobe villages as you explore around Salta and beyond. Continue this great trip with a stay among the vines just outside Mendoza, in the foothills of the Andes before a day or two exploring Buenos Aires. Take in the norteño culture from native wildlife and delicious wine-tastings to striking landscapes.
