Detailed Itinerary

DAY 1:Arrival in Buenos Aires

Morning arrival at the airport and transfer to the hotel. In the afternoon, we enjoy a panoramic tour of the city. We start in Plaza de Mayo, witness to the most important events of the country since 1810. Here, we are able to learn about the current situation of the country, while we appreciate the surrounding buildings. We continue to the neighborhood of La Boca to walk along the famous Caminito alley and its colorful “conventillos”. Our last stop is Recoleta to discover the aristocratic part of the city. Back to the hotel. In the evening, we attend a Dinner Show, to enjoy the magnetism of tango. Overnight accommodations at selected hotel Meals: Dinner

DAY 2: Buenos Aires.

Day at leisure to enjoy an optional tour. Overnight accommodations at selected hotel Meals: Breakfast

DAY 3: Buenos Aires / Ushuaia.

At due time, transfer to the airport to board the flight to Ushuaia. In the afternoon, boat trip through the Beagle Channel, gaining an excellent panoramic view of the city surrounded by mountains. During the trip, we spot De los Pájaros and De los Lobos islands (Birds and Sea lions’ Islands). This offers the unique rare opportunity to see, in the same colony both South American sea lions and the South American Fur seal, to understand their differences, and finally reach the Lighthouse of Les Eclaireurs, from where the return to the city begins. Overnight accommodations at selected hotel Meals: Breakfast

DAY 4: Ushuaia

Departure from the hotel heading west to the Tierra del Fuego National Park, framed by excellent panoramic views of the Beagle Channel. A journey through beaver dams leads to Lapataia River and Verde Lagoon and then continues along the final stretch of National Route 3, which finally ends at Lapataia Bay. From here, the return to Ushuaia begins, making a stop on the way to admire the Acigami Lake (former Roca Lake), notable by its changed-by-weather water’s colour. After the tour, we return to the hotel. Afternoon at leisure to continue discovering the destination. If you are a nature lover, we suggest you should visit Martillo Island, one of the few sites where it is possible to walk with Papuan penguins. However, if you prefer landscapes, we recommend you explore the lakes area and experiment the adrenaline in a 4×4 excursion. Check the available options according to your trip date. Overnight accommodations at selected hotel Meals: Breakfast

Transfer to the airport to board the scheduled flight to El Calafate. Arrival, transfer and accommodation.

DAY 6: El Calafate

Departure from the hotel towards Perito Moreno Glacier, located in Los Glaciares National Park, which thanks to its breathtaking beauty, has been declared a Natural Heritage Site by UNESCO. The glacier is an impressive mass of ice with an area of 257 square kilometres and a front wall that has a height between 50 and 60 meters (165 to 200 ft.) above lake level. During the tour, a walk along the paths located in front of the glacier, allows us to admire this impressive natural wonder from different viewpoints. This tour can be enhanced by a 1-hour boat ride, which allows us to enjoy a different perspective of the glacier front wall from the water level. Free time for lunch (not included). In the afternoon, return to the hotel. Overnight accommodations at selected hotel Meals: Breakfast
