Any Malbec fanatics out there? This is your tour…
Let’s get straight to it. Once you are settled into the Andean setting at Mendoza you will set out for the Luján de Cuyo department, where there are a plethora of vineyards to choose from. At the vineyards professional guides will lead you through Malbecs of various maturities and aging processes. Imagine tasting a bit of Malbec on a warm, dry day just before settling in for a pick-nick in the mountains. This is great and fun opportunity to learn about the wine making process in a romantic setting. Now there are several opportunities to try more Malbecs and loads of food and libations to try. This region is also known for its olive oil, sweets, and incredible, traditionally prepared meats. If you like barbeques I think Argentina and its parrillas need to be on your list.
Whether you chose a guided vehicle or to travel to the vineyards on bicycle there is no shortage of activities during your stay. At Mendoza you are just a few hours from South Americas highest peak, Anconcagua, surrounded by colorful Andean foothills. There is rafting, hiking, and even cooking courses that we can arrange. It is the perfect place to go as a couple or with a group of friends.

Flying into Mendoza will require a layover in Buenos Aires which is a very good thing. The streets of BA are on fire with Tango and street performance. If you have time and have come all that way its well worth a few days, particularly on the weekend with markets and Broadway shows.
There is no doubt why the cosmopolitan city of nearly 3 million is called the Paris of the Americas. Evenings can be passed dining on succulent dishes and after out to stroll the streets enjoying impromptu Tango shows and other music. Art and history museums are there for those who want them and on Sunday is the infamous San Telmo market. At the market are locals artists selling their wares, playing their instruments (Live Jazz! and more), and swinging their dance partners. My favorites were the Tango groups with live musicians, the Samba drum groups, and the puppeteers. Wait, or was it the food?
This is just the tip of the iceberg for Buenos Aires and Argentina. Puerto Madryn (Reserva Faunistica Peninsula Valdes) where the diversity of marine mammals is rivaled only by that of the Galapagos Islands. At Valdes you will see sea lions, elephant seals, orcas (killer whales), and with any luck glimpse the great southern right whales. Onshore Magellanic penguins mingle with ostrich like rheas in the grass. The view from the shoreline is incredible but one the following day you’ll board a sea bound cruise to scout the nearshore water for close up views of right whales.
There are also glaciers in the south, Tupungatito volcano on the border with Chile, Foz do Iguaçu, the jungle and the tri-border (Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina)…
