UNIQUE THINGS TO DO IN ARGENTINA
We know that you love to travel differently. You love to immerse yourself in the wonders of every destination you visit.
You want to get off the beaten track to escape the tourist crowds… and that’s what we specialise in.
Stay on an estancia
Allow a few days to stay on an estancia to get a feel for traditional life on the land. You can find Estancias across the country with varying levels of comfort from rustic farmhouses to indulgent lodges.
The experiences on offer vary, but stays usually include all meals and a range of activities such as horse riding, fishing and hiking. Some offer cooking experiences and a few are also available for day visits.
Travel the Ruta 40
Spanning the length of Argentina, the Ruta 40 is a wild road that traverses extraordinarily beautiful countryside that flips between barren, remote, dramatic and eerie. Not for the fainthearted, Ruta 40 is one of the world’s least-travelled roads.
After days of driving through stark landscapes you are rewarded with views of the amazing towers of Mount Fitz Roy, visible from 100km away.
Keep travelling further south to Perito Moreno Glacier, and then cross the Straits of Magellan to Tierra del Fuego and on to Ushuaia – quite literally, the end of the road.

Explore Salta on foot
Salta, a hidden gem in Northern Argentina, is a great city to explore on foot. Walking is the best way to fully immerse yourself in the beauty of Salta… street art, brightly coloured churches and architecture that resembles Spanish villages mixed with European culture.
If you are up to it after a day of walking, head to one of Salta’s popular peñas (folk music clubs) to enjoy an evening of live música folklórica (folk music).
Live like the locals do
There are plenty of ways to step into the local life in Argentina. Experience the passion and excitement of a local football game with a guide… learn the tango in an authentic tango school and then join the locals on the floor… take some new cooking skills home by learning how to make your own empanadas and cook the perfect steak in an interactive restaurant.
More than half the world’s professional polo players are Argentinian, so give yourself a day to watch a game, learn some skills and then enjoy the social element with a traditional asado and wine.
