5 Day Argentina Wine Tour

OVERVIEW

Welcome to Argentina!!

Patagonia; Tango; Gauchos; steak and wine. These are the images that come to mind when thinking about Argentina. With several distinct and unique landscapes and experiences, Argentina makes for a great vacation destination or combine with visits to nearby countries, such as Chile, Brazil or Uruguay.

Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is the country’s largest and most important city with over 25% of the total population. A relatively flat and walkable city, Buenos Aires is characterized by its European architecture and cobbled streets lined with outdoor cafes; it’s no wonder that Buenos Aires is referred to as the Paris of the South.

Outside of Buenos Aires, wild and windswept Patagonia awaits. Hikers will enjoy visits to Patagonia for spectacular hiking and natural scenery. Even non-hikers can enjoy the natural setting – from a guided walk on an active glacier to a scenic cruise on an alpine lake. Wine lovers can visit the Northwest and/or Mendoza wine regions and enjoy the many varietals that make Argentina a leader in world wine production. Wildlife lovers can visit a number of areas to see Guanacos, Penguins, Sea lions, Killer Whales, seals and more. In the semi-tropical north, visitors car cruise through vast wetlands to see snakes, hundreds of bird species, Capybara and even piranha. Not to be missed is the thunderous Iguazu Falls, whose sight inspired Eleanor Roosevelt to proclaim “Poor Niagara” when visiting the Falls in 1944. Poor Niagara for sure; Iguazu Falls is a series of over 275 waterfalls some of which are more than 100 feet higher than Niagara Falls.

Exploring Argentina has never been easier and Travel4Real can personalize your experience to make for a memorable and unforgettable trip.

ITINERARY

Day 01: Arrival in Mendoza.

This small city, bathed in sunshine, is one of the centers of Argentine wine production. It forms the southern point of Argentina’s wine route, which extends some 1200 miles and contains over 2000 wineries. Choose to stay in a hotel in the city center or, for a unique experience, stay in a wine lodge on a winery, with opportunities for wine tasting, hiking, and horseback riding. Spend the afternoon exploring Mendoza, with its numerous parks and ornately decorated plazas.

Day 02: Winery Visit.

Take a tour of one of the many nearby wineries. Famed producers such as Catena, Trapiche, and Norton, as well as many others, offer tours and tastings of excellent Malbec wines.

Day 03: Into the Andes.

Travel outside of Mendoza and climb into the Andes for unparalleled views of towering mountains peaks including Aconcagua, the tallest peak in the Americas; visit Puente del Inca, a colorful natural rock bridge; and spend some time in idyllic mountain villages.

Day 04: Free Day.

Enjoy some down time and explore Mendoza independently or choose to take an optional tour to the Uco Valley for wine tastings and lunch. Adventure seekers may consider going river rafting, horseback riding or biking.
