Argentina is infused with an intensity unlike anywhere else and we’ll take you to the country’s north, where its passionate undercurrent is at its most raw. With full-bodied wines in Mendoza, the crashing Iguazú Falls and impassioned tango routines in Buenos Aires, this journey ensures you see Argentine fervour at its height – in all its many guises.

Begin your luxury holiday in Argentina in the capital, Buenos Aires, where Latin American passion mixes with colonial grandeur. You’ll kick off your time in the city with a guided walking tour of its southern neighbourhoods, including vibrant La Boca and the hip cobbles of San Telmo – where you can stop for a choripán (Argentine hotdog) and a beer. Hop on a bicycle to explore the northern wedge of Buenos Aires, including the elegant Retiro district and the marble mausoleums of Recoleta Cemetery. Your time in the capital will culminate with a gripping tango performance at Café de los Angelitos, a tanguería with over a century of history.

Once you’re all tangoed out, go west to Mendoza. Hemmed in between lofty plains and undulating foothills, it’s the gateway to the largest wine-producing region in Latin America. It would be rude not to visit a boutique winery while you’re there but we’ve gone one step further than that. You’ll not only be able to try the malbecs Tempus Alba winery specialises in, but you’ll be given a blending session so you can craft your very own vintage. After a gourmet lunch you’ll visit Casa El Enemigo, a sustainable winery that cares as much for the environment as it does for its vines.

Now, the wilderness beckons and you’ll drive through the barren canyons and multi-coloured mountains of Purmamarca, pausing to visit a traditional spinning mill, before being awestruck by the gleaming white salt pans of Salinas Grandes, a crusty diamond-white desert that stretches for over two hundred square miles. You’ll swap white for rust-red on a hike around Cerro de los Siete Colores and then devote a whole day to exploring the rugged valley of Quebrada de Humahuaca. Among this craggy landscape, you’ll unearth pre-Inca fortifications, the village of Tilcara and the adobe houses of colonial Humahuaca.

Return to some sophistication among the plazas and colonial grandeur of Salta, north-west Argentina’s most important city. A guided walking tour will cast an expert eye on the museums, cathedrals and Hispanic history of a city founded in 1582 by conquistador Hernando de Lerma. But we’ve saved the best of northern Argentina until last: a walk among the raw power of the near-three hundred waterfalls that seep from the jungle of Iguazú National Park. It will culminate in the thunderous Devil’s Throat, a fierce watery curtain you can’t help be transfixed by.

On this Iuxury holiday, Argentina is a wonder that’ll stay with you forever.


Experience highlights

  • Colour your time in Buenos Aires with a walking tour of its southern half. Your private guide will show you some of the city’s key sites like the Plaza de Mayo, where the city was founded, and many of its enigmatic neighbourhoods – the artistic flair of La Boca will be a highlight.
  • Not wanting to give you only half the story, you’ll follow that up by exploring Buenos Aires’ north by bicycle. Pedal through the fashionable Retiro neighbourhood, the iconic cemetery of Recoleta and pause for a gourmet picnic in one of the well-tended parks of Palermo.
  • Savour a tasty three-course meal before enjoying a tango show at one of Buenos Aires’ premier haunts, Café de los Angelitos. A favourite with some of the country’s best tango dancers in its one hundred-plus years of existence, you’ll be witnessing living history.
  • Play winemaker for the day and create your own wine blend at Tempus Alba, one of north-west Argentina’s best boutique wineries. Be under the guidance of an expert blender as you craft your own vintage red, before enjoying lunch with the winery’s owner on its sun-dappled terrace.
  • Pay a visit to Casa El Enemigo, a sustainable winery focused on growing its vines in harmony with the surrounding environment. On a guided tour you’ll see the organic garden which supplies its farm-to-table philosophy and the ingenious ways it saves water – very impressive for a vineyard.
  • Gawp at Salinas Grande, the third-largest salt flats on the planet. Like an ocean of crystalline-white that disappears into the horizon in every direction you look, the reflection of the pure white salt against a bright blue sky will be utterly spellbinding.
  • Hike the Colorados Trail, where you’ll wind round Cerro de los Siete Colores, a formation composed of seven different layers of sediments and minerals. The result is a multicoloured hill with hues of vermillion, scarlet and raspberry-red.
  • Go on a guided walking tour of Salta’s oldest quarter, taking in some of the city’s oldest buildings like its Roman Catholic cathedral and the San Bernardo Convent, which has a door carved by indigenous artists in 1762.
  • Finish your trip with a hike through Iguazú National Park, a swathe of rainforest striped with waterfalls. Your walk will end at the Devil’s Throat, a thundering curtain of water you can’t help but be mesmerised by. A viewing platform overlooks its fierce torrents, where you’ll be licked by its cooling spray.

    Where you’ll stay


    Legado Mitico, Buenos Aires

    On the doorstep of Palermo 'Soho', the lively bohemian neighbourhood lined with independent shops and trendy local bars and restaurants, this luxury boutique is perfect for exploring the cool, modern side of the city. A stylish home away from home, discover the property and country’s unique history during your stay and enjoy unwinding on the rooftop sundeck, in the library or ivy-walled patio. Rooms are themed around celebrated national icons such as Evita, Che Guevara and the Gaucho.


    Finca Adalgisa, Mendoza

    A family-run boutique winery in the heart of Mendoza’s wine region, the Furlotti-Moretti family have been perfecting their malbecs at Finca Adalgisa for three generations. Stays in the early twentieth century farmhouse are rustic and homely, with excellent views over its sun-streaked vines. Your arrival treat of cheese and wine precludes the tasty array of asados (barbecues), tapas-style platters and, of course, plenty of wine you enjoy during your time at Finca Adalgisa. Exploration of nearby vineyards is a must to help burn off those excess calories…


    El Manantial del Silencio Resort & Spa, Purmamarca

    Peeking over the village of Purmamarca, El Manatial del Silencio offers a tranquil refuge among its whitewashed monastic-style abode and elegant colonial decor – its name means Source of Silence, after all. The vivid locally woven rugs, chocolate-brown tiles and dark-wood furniture create a cosy atmosphere, but these play second fiddle to the hotel’s unblemished view of the multi-hued Cerro de los Siete Colores hill. The hotel is geared towards soaking up the views of the rugged Humahuaca Gorge in silence – a philosophy in line with Andean culture.


    Legado Mitico, Salta

    If Salta is a city brimming with sophistication, then Legado Mitico is an exemplary example of where its classy locals would live. In part, that’s true, with the hotel once a mansion for a wealthy Salteno family. Now, it’s a historic blend of antique leather furniture, vivid paintings and rooms packed with books about Salta’s culture and history. Legado Mitico’s overwhelming pride for its city is well-placed, literally, as you’re within a half-hour walk from all of Salta’s signature landmarks, including its main square Plaza 9 de Julio.


    Gran Meliá Iguazú Resort & Spa, Iguazú National Park

    The only hotel located within Iguazú National Park, you couldn’t be better located to witness the park’s wondrous waterfalls than at the Gran Meliá. Rooms are either angled towards the falls themselves or the thick jungle, where toucans gather in the trees at daybreak and sundown. Its large infinity pool is handy for cooling off in after a day’s hiking in the park, while the dulce de leche dessert at the Merkado restaurant is a sweet way to dine on the crashing cascades in the distance.
