    Overview

    Discover the secrets of Buenos Aires, South America's most seductive capital, stay at a classic estancia (ranch) on the pampas, then witness the majesty of Iguazú Falls, one of the most breathtaking sights in the natural world. Our family-focused Private Journey begins in Argentina's stylish capital, where you'll walk (or bike, if you prefer) in the city's most famous neighborhoods, from bohemian San Telmo, with its cobbled streets, to the colorful port of La Boca, where tango is ever present. A choice of activities is offered each day. After a relaxing overnight at a classic turn-of-the-century ranch out in the pampas, fly to Iguazú Falls, a World Heritage Site surrounded by an incredible forest full of tropical wildlife, from toucans to parrots and monkeys. You'll visit both the Argentine and Brazilian side of the falls, exploring walkways that weave in and around the cascades for up-close perspectives. Fun optional add-ons include attending a professional soccer game in one of the most famous stadiums in the world, enjoying an asado dinner, the Macuco Safari Experience at Iguazú Falls, and a cooking class and dinner. At journey's end, join our family-tailored extensions to Patagonia for hikes in Los Glaciares National Park or to Bariloche to explore the luxuriant forests and glacial lagoons of the Lake District.

      Influenced by the great European cities, Buenos Aires has its own distinct personality and proud traditions. On foot, by bike, or with a private car at your disposal, explore the city's colorful port, historic districts, and leafy parks with your private guide. Famous sights include the graceful Recoleta cemetery where the legendary Evita Perón is buried and the photogenic neighborhood of La Boca, with its open-air tango dancing. Fun optional add-ons include attending an exciting Boca Juniors game in one of the most famous soccer stadiums in the world or a convivial asado argentino at a "secret" restaurant.
      Head out for an overnight at an exclusive estancia (working ranch) on the vast lands called the pampas. En route, visit San Antonio de Areco, with its cobbled streets and 18th century church on the central plaza. The town is the national capital of gaucho tradition. Enjoy a typical asado lunch, meet the local gauchos at the ranch, then perhaps take a horseback ride through green countryside or relax at the ranch's peaceful swimming pool.
      Mighty Iguazú Falls straddles the border of Argentina and Brazil for two full miles, with 250 separate cascades tumbling a mile down from the cliffs of the river. The sights and sounds are unforgettable, and the dreamy setting is a tropical jungle full of toucan, parrots, and monkeys. Enjoy a full day's exploration of the Argentine side of Iguazú National Park, with its incredible subtropical forest, and a half-day on the Brazilian side for stupendous panoramas. Exciting optional add-ons are the Macuco Safari Experience—boarding a trolley for a scenic overview of Brazil's side of the falls—and taking part in an Argentine cooking class and dinner. Depart on Day 7 via Buenos Aires or join one of our extensions to Patagonia or Bariloche!
      • Professional Soccer Game
      • Asado Dinner (shared)

      Trip Levels

      With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.

      Level 1 – Easiest

      Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.

      Level 2 – Easy to Moderate

      Hotel nights and/or safari-style camping, hikes of two to four hours on some days. Other physical activities are sometimes included, such as optional sea kayaking.

       

      Level 3 – Moderate

      Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.

      Level 4 – Moderate to Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (4-6 hours), mountainous terrain, significant elevation gains and losses (hiking up or down as much as 3,000 feet) on many days. Altitudes no greater than about 10,000 feet.

       

      Level 5 – Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.

      Level 6 – Very Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (5-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Most hikes take place at altitudes above 10,000 feet, with some days ascending as high as 18,000 feet.

Be sure to check the expiration date. Your passport must be valid for six months after your date of exit from Argentina. In addition, we recommend your passport have at least two completely blank visa pages for every country you will be visiting. It is very important that the blank pages say &#8220;Visas&#8221; at the top. The last few pages of your passport, which say &#8220;Amendments and Endorsements,&#8221; and the final page of your passport, which may not have a page number, are not considered to be legitimate visa pages. The service of adding pages for visas was discontinued as of January 1, 2016. You can request a new passport through <a href=\"http:\/\/travel.state.gov\/passport\">US Passport Services Office<\/a> or use a visa service agency, which can take care of your passport renewal and expedite the process, if needed. We recommend <a href=\"http:\/\/www.passportvisasexpress.com\/?affId=2120\">Passport Visas Express<\/a>. Be sure to allow sufficient time to acquire this before your trip. <br><br>It is very important to carry photocopies of your passport's photo page and any acquired visa pages for your trip (if applicable) in case your passport is lost or as an additional piece of identification, as well as two extra passport photos.","Custom_Visas_and_Entry_Notes":"US citizens do not need a visa for Argentina. If you are a citizen of any country other than the US, check with a local consulate for entry requirements.","Custom_Money":"Argentina is quite reasonably priced for Americans. We suggest you carry money in US dollars in small denominations ($20s, $10s). Credit cards are accepted in at major establishments in the bigger cities. Travelers checks are not recommended as they can be difficult and time-consuming to cash. <br><br>You will need to budget spending money for gratuities, any meals not included in the trip itinerary, international and domestic airport taxes, and personal items such as beverages, snacks, phone calls, etc. <br><br>We recommend you bring an appropriate amount of money in cash in small bills and one or two major credit cards (Visa or MasterCard) for shopping and lodge extras. To use an ATM internationally, you must have a four-digit PIN. If you plan to use your credit cards, inform your credit card company before your departure that you will be using the card abroad.","Custom_Tipping":"Tipping is completely discretionary, but over the years, clients have asked us for tipping guidelines to reward outstanding service. <br><br>For private tours, we recommend an average of $10-$15 USD per person per full day tour for your local guide, with $5-$7 USD per person for your driver, if less than 4 in a group. For groups of 5 people or more, we recommend $5-$10 USD per person per full day tour for your local guide, with $3-$5 USD per person for your driver. <br><br>At restaurants, a typical gratuity would be 10% of the total. Taxi drivers do not usually expect tips, but it is customary to round up the fare. Tips can be given in US Dollars or local currency.","Custom_Food":"Please reach out to us directly to discuss any dietary restrictions or concerns you may have. We can easily make arrangements for most diets, but please keep in mind that certain cultural differences or logistical limitations can make it difficult or at times impossible to accommodate all requests. With this in mind, please inform us at least eight weeks before your trip if you have a special diet, and any food allergies in particular, so we can do our best to meet your needs.","Custom_Communications":"<strong>Telephone<\/strong><br>The international dialing code for Argentina is 54. Please contact your cell phone company for specific instructions for international use.<br><strong><br>Email &amp; Internet Access<\/strong><br>Internet access is available at all of our lodges but the connections can be spotty.","Custom_Electricity":"Argentina has 220-volt current. Plugs usually have two or three round pins or three slanted flat pins. Bring a converter and plug adaptor kit for appliance use.","Custom_Laundry":"There will be limited opportunities to do laundry on the trip. Please bring enough items to last the entire trip or plan to wash clothes yourself. Items should be lightweight so they can dry overnight.","Custom_Ship_Notes":"","Custom_Inoculations":"No inoculations are required for this trip. We recommend that you discuss the following with your physician:<br><br><strong>Yellow Fever<\/strong><br>A Yellow Fever vaccination is strongly recommended if you plan to take the Iguazu Falls Extension. The shot is good for 10 years. Have proof of the shot recorded in your International Health Card.<br><br><strong>Hepatitis<\/strong><br>The vaccines HAVRIX and VAQTA (two injections, six to 18 months apart) give long-term protection against Hepatitis A and are worthwhile if you travel regularly to developing countries.<br><br><strong>Tetanus Booster<\/strong><br>It is very easy to get a small cut. A booster is strongly recommended (effective for 10 years).<br><strong><br>Typhoid<\/strong><br>The CDC recommends the shot or the oral vaccine, Vivotif Berna.","Custom_International_Health":"A Yellow Fever vaccination is recommended if you plan to take the optional Iguazu Falls Extension. Have the shot recorded in your International Health Card and carry the card with your passport as proof of vaccination.<br><br>","Custom_Malaria_Prevention":"","Custom_Staying_Healthy":"You can reduce your risk of getting sick on the trip by washing your hands often and not touching your face with unwashed hands. If you arrive on the trip with a cold or feel the symptoms of a cold, avoid close contact with others and move away from people before coughing or sneezing. The CDC recommends coughing or sneezing into a tissue or into the crook of your elbow or upper sleeve, not your hands.<br><br>Don't brush your teeth with tap water; use bottled water, and don't use ice in your drinks unless you are sure it was made with treated water. When in doubt, ask your Trip Leader for guidelines.","Custom_Getting_In_Shape":"For your own enjoyment of travel, we recommend you make a special effort to be in good physical condition. Daily brisk walking and\/or regular hiking (or using a stair-climbing machine at your gym) are excellent preparatory exercises.","Custom_Medical_Care":"","Custom_Altitude_Considerations":"","Custom_Reading_List":"Elevate your travel experience by delving into this curated collection of books tailored to your upcoming adventure.

But not every surprise is a welcome one, and some can make their appearance before you ever set foot on the plane. That's why we ask you to consider purchasing travel insurance.<\/li><li>Pack light. If you're traveling in multiple cities, that means you're dragging everything you brought, so pack carefully.<\/li><li>The best way to visit a place is on foot. Do some sightseeing, grab a croissant or gelato whenever you like, see nature up close. Learn to use the local mass transit system a bit, so you can easily get to farther areas to explore more. Short activities are recommended so you can return to your hotel for a nap or rest and head out for dinner later on.<\/li><li>Get lost. Wander, explore, discover, be surprised&mdash;it's all part of the adventure!<\/li><li>Schedule pauses for the kids to rest and give them something yummy to get energy back, such as a <em>helado<\/em> (ice cream).<\/li><li>Encourage your kids to pick up some easy Spanish phrases. They will have fun learning to say hello, thank you, and where's the bathroom, among other phrases. They won't get fluent, but they will learn a bit about the culture and language.<\/li><li>Ask locals and your travel advisor for recommendations. Guide books and the Internet are great, but the best recommendations come from people who actually live there.<\/li><li>Keep the kids busy while traveling. Get them travel journals so they can record their adventures! It's the perfect distraction on long car rides or on the plane&mdash;and it'll get them practicing the writing skills they're learning in school.<\/li><li>Remember, this is a vacation. Take it easy and have some days to simply relax.<\/li><li>Be flexible. Things will go wrong; you'll lose things, the weather may not cooperate on some days, so when that happens, smile and accept the way things are. This is the philosophy you should convey to your kids, even before you travel.<\/li><\/ul><strong><br>Buenos Aires Weather<\/strong><br>The weather in Buenos Aires is mild and wet (a pampas climate) with warm summers and cold winters. The rainfall is usually moderate. During summer, temperatures can climb up to 100&deg;F and more. The average temperatures are between 75&deg;F and 95&deg;F. Spring is cooler, with temperatures between 60&deg;F to 75&deg;F. Most frequent rainfalls occur in autumn and spring. Winter in Argentina is from June to September (with average temperatures between 40&deg;F and 62&deg;F).The coldest month is July, with temperatures between 35&deg;F and 45&deg;F. <br><strong><br>Iguazu Falls Weather<\/strong><br>The weather in Iguazu Falls is warm year-round and it can feel like being in the jungle as one walks through the lush, tropical forests to the waterfalls. Some rainfall is common throughout the year, and while there may be heavy rain showers in April, the rains swell the rivers to create even more impressive waterfalls. The average temperature during the year is 70&deg;F. During winter (June to September) the lowest temperatures can get close to 50&deg;F. During summer (December to March), the weather is very hot and the temperature is usually over 90&deg;F.","Custom_Essentials":"<ul><li>Air tickets (or E-tickets)<\/li><li>Passport<\/li><li>One other picture ID, such as driver's license<\/li><li>Expense money<\/li><\/ul>","Custom_Luggage":"<ul><li>Soft-sided roller bag with small padlock (must be unlocked for travel).<\/li><li>Daypack, large enough for a fleece jacket, rain gear, water bottle, camera, and other items you want on the trail. It should be a shoulder pack (not a fanny pack) with a supporting waist belt. Packs with a capacity of 1450-2000 cubic inches are recommended. Try hiking with your pack before the trip to make sure it is comfortable.<\/li><\/ul><div><strong><br>Weight Limits<\/strong><br>There is a baggage weight limit on checked luggage for internal flights within Argentina. You are limited to 33 pounds per person for checked bags and 17 pounds per person for carry-on bags. Excess baggage fees may apply and must be paid directly to the carrier.<br><\/div>","Custom_Clothing":"Our best advice for anticipating weather on this trip is to be prepared for everything! You'll want to pack lightly, leaving space for souvenirs, but you also want to be prepared for all kinds of weather. The clothing list below covers items you will need on various sections of the trip; the cooler-weather clothing is recommended if you decide to take the Patagonia and\/or Bariloche extensions. <br><br><strong>Fabrics<\/strong><br>Polypropylene, Capilene, fleece, and other synthetic fabrics are excellent insulators and are far lighter than wool; they also have the added benefit of drying quickly in a rainy climate. Cotton is not a good insulator, especially as a first layer next to the skin. Once it gets wet from perspiration, it stays wet and keeps you cold. <br><br><br><strong>Burrs<\/strong><br>Some Patagonian plants are spiny and have stickers or burrs that load up on socks, pants, and especially on pile clothing. Gaiters can be helpful in keeping your socks clean. Wind pants reduce the burr load on pant legs. A pocket comb or Swiss army knife is helpful for removing burrs. <br><br><ul><li>Fleece sweater. Some people prefer vests.<\/li><li>Good quality rain\/wind shell jacket with hood and good quality rain\/wind pants<\/li><li>Hiking pants. Synthetic, quick-drying fabric is best. Jeans are not suitable because they are made of heavy cotton.<\/li><li>Lightweight pants for city wear<\/li><li>Sturdy hiking shorts<\/li><li>Long-sleeved shirts. Quick-drying &#8220;travel&#8221; fabrics are best.<\/li><li>T-shirts<\/li><li>Shade\/sun hat with wide brim. A hat with a chinstrap is best if you're extending to Patagonia<\/li><li>Running shoes, tennis shoes, or lightweight hiking boots. You will be on your feet for many hours each day<\/li><li>Tevas for Iguazu Falls if you plan to get wet on the Macuco safari experience<\/li><li>Hiking socks. Thorlo brand (moisture-wicking synthetic with padded toes and heels) are a good choice.<\/li><li>Casual socks for city wear<\/li><li>Underwear. Synthetics dry faster<\/li><li>Sleepwear<\/li><li>Lightweight casual city\/hotel attire (it will be hot and humid in Buenos Aires)<\/li><\/ul> <br><br>If you plan to extend your trip to Patagonia:<br><ul><li>Fiberfill or heavy fleece jacket. Temperatures can be as low as 40&deg;.<\/li><li>Polypropylene or Capilene long underwear, bottoms and tops<\/li><li>Lightweight polypropylene gloves<\/li><li>Lightweight or medium-weight hiking boots with Vibram-type rubber lug soles, good ankle support, and waterproofed uppers<\/li><li>Fleece hat for warmth<\/li><\/ul>","Custom_Hiking_Boots":"","Custom_Equipment":"<ul><li>One or two sturdy reusable water bottles, 1 qt. capacity. Wide-mouth bottles are easier to fill.<\/li><li>Good quality sunglasses with case. A spare pair of sunglasses is invaluable should your first pair be broken or lost.<\/li><li>Waterproof pack cover<\/li><li>Ear plugs<\/li><li>Flashlight and extra batteries<\/li><li>Travel alarm clock. Many of our lodges don't have clocks or phones so this is important for wake-up calls.<\/li><\/ul> <br><br>If you plan to extend your trip to Patagonia:<br><ul><li>Collapsible walking stick or trekking poles. Hiking with a collapsible hiking pole, such as those by Leki and REI, helps to distribute your body weight, takes pressure off your knees, and improves your balance. Most hikers like using one pole, and others hike with two poles.<\/li><li>NOTE about contact lenses: Patagonia is constantly windy, and this can make wearing contact lenses miserable. We strongly suggest you bring a pair of eyeglasses just in case!<\/li><\/ul>","Custom_Personal_First_Aid":"Every trip member must bring a small kit for personal use. Your own experience will influence your choices.<br><ul><li>Sunscreen SPF 30 or higher. We recommend mineral-based sunscreens with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide because they do not contain harsh chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Brands such as Honest Company, Badger, and Alba Botanica are found in most sporting goods stores and drugstores.<\/li><li>Lip balm with sunscreen and\/or zinc oxide<\/li><li>Aspirin, ibuprofen, or Tylenol for muscle pain or headache, Tylenol PM<\/li><li>Topical antibiotic (such as Neosporin) for cuts, bites, or sores<\/li><li>Insect repellent<\/li><li>Blister kit. Look for the long-lasting gel-type bandages that you can apply directly on blisters, such as Band-Aid Advanced Healing Bandages or Curad Gel Multi-Day Bandages. &#8220;Liquid band-aids,&#8221; such as New-Skin, are useful because they dry rapidly to form a tough protective cover over a blister.<\/li><li>Dramamine or other medication for motion sickness (for long days of road travel)<\/li><li>Anti-bacterial gel for hand washing<\/li><li>Antihistamine such as Benadryl and cold remedy such as Sudafed<\/li><li>Imodium for diarrhea. If you wish to bring an antibiotic for diarrhea prophylaxis, please consult your physician.<\/li><li>Prescription medications properly labeled<\/li><\/ul>","Custom_Optional_Items":"<ul><li>Converter\/plug adapter for appliance use in hotels.

For higher quality images and the ability to use long lenses for closer wildlife pictures, a DSLR camera is well worthwhile, though heavier. Most digital cameras and phones have good video options, but you may want to consider a GoPro for a lightweight, waterproof option. Always practice ahead of time with new equipment and bring your manual with you. You may want to consider renting camera equipment for your trip from places such as <a href=\"https:\/\/www.borrowlenses.com\/\">borrowlenses.com<\/a>. This is an especially good idea for renting large zoom lenses that you may need for just one trip. Adding their extra insurance fee to cover expensive equipment is recommended. <br><strong><br>Camera Accessories<\/strong><br>We recommend bringing at least two large capacity memory cards or a small digital storage unit (or tablet) to back up your photos, freeing space on your memory cards. Don't forget to bring a battery charger and a backup battery so one is always charged and ready to use. For trips where you may be away from power sources for multiple days, consider looking into a solar-powered battery charger or buying additional backup batteries, and check that you have the appropriate adapter for the electrical outlets in your destination.<br><strong><br>Sharing Your Images<\/strong><br>We would love for you to share photos from your trip, and with your permission, may even use your photos in our marketing materials or on our photo blog. We request that you send us a small sample of your best images. Please email your photos to wtphotoblog@gmail.com or tag us @WildernessTravel on social media.<br><strong><br>Photography Etiquette<\/strong><br>When taking pictures of local people, be aware of cultural considerations. Approaching people with a warm smile and using polite gestures or simple phrases to ask permission to photograph them usually works well. It is always recommended to engage people in conversation before asking to photograph them, but if people do not wish to have their photo taken, please honor their requests. We urge travelers to avoid giving money in exchange for photo opportunities, which makes it harder for future travelers to have a meaningful personal interaction with local people. Please always heed your Trip Leader's guidelines for what is appropriate.
