The beauty of Northern Argentina


Trip description

Argentina is the 8th largest country in the world. To discover better this country with natural treasures spread out from coast to coast it is appropriate to divide your trip in two parts. Here is the best 2-week itinerary featuring the must-see places in northern Argentina but also some hidden gems. You will visit the capital of tango : Buenos Aires, Salta region with striking rock formations and almost lunar landscape, Mendoza wine region and the magnificent Iguazu falls. A few days are planned as a self-drive itinerary to give you more freedom. 

Enquire within to update the itinerary, change some regular tours to private tours, or if you would rather rent a car with a driver-guide for the self-drive part of the itinerary.
