Description of Best of Argentina tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs with all of our luxury vacations, this itinerary has been crafted to ensure that it positively effects the local communities and environments visited.
This itinerary includes trips to some of Argentina's protected areas of natural beauty, from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Perito Moreno Glacier to the scenic eco-train ride through the jungle to Iguazu Falls. By visiting these sites (all entrance fees are included in your luxury tour), you are supporting the preservation and conservation of these areas, and indicating to authorities that tourists are interested in protecting Argentina's incredible natural environments.
Whilst exploring Argentina's areas of natural beauty, please ensure that you don’t leave any litter – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife.
We also make a special effort to recommend accommodation providers which have responsible and sustainable initiatives. For example, Loi Suites in the Iguazú Falls area is located in the Iryapú Jungle, built with maximum respect for nature and preserving native vegetation.
PeopleAll the local guides referred to in this itinerary are paid a fair wage. We believe that using local guides is important, as it helps generate local incomes and creates jobs, plus it offers a more authentic travel experience.
Our tour activities are always focused around authentic local experiences, so that you can learn about the local culture. Soak up the rich history and culture of Buenos Aires with a guided city tour, and sample the local food and world-class wines of Mendoza.
We recommend independent local hotels, lodges, guesthouses and campsites, rather than international chain hotels, which helps support local communities and allows you to experience true Argentine hospitality. For example, this Argentina vacation includes a stay in an authentic estancia (cattle ranch) with a local gaucho farming family. Estancia La Eloisa, a family-owned ranch where you’ll meet traditional gauchos (cowboys) and their horses and learn about daily farm life.
We believe getting to know the destination and the people who live there means that you will have a more authentic and meaningful travel experience.
