Hand-crafted Travel to Argentina

From steamy rainforests and parched deserts in the north of Argentina to the icy weather-beaten south, this vast country packs every terrain imaginable. Whether you are looking for an active family holiday or a romantic luxury honeymoon, Argentina cannot fail to surprise you with its patchwork of landscapes and cultures.

Spend time in Buenos Aires at the beginning or end of your trip, and you won’t regret it. This buzzy city is one of South America’s most exciting capitals. Buenos Aires is home to world-class museums, restaurants and grand Parisian streets that lead to charming leafy squares. From here, our team will work with you to curate the trip of a lifetime, putting your passions and interests at the heart of the journey. Patagonia and the south are at their best between November and April when the snow has retreated to reveal meadows rich with flora and fauna, pine-scented forest trails, and gin-clear rivers and mountain lakes.

Visit Northern Argentina between May and August, and the humidity makes way for spring-like days in the wetlands of Corrientes, the deserts and Winelands in Salta and the Atlantic rainforests in Iguazu. Those with a love of wine or time in the saddle will enjoy Mendoza and Cordoba, home to some of the finest boutique wine hotels and luxury polo estancias in Argentina.

Argentina is an enormous country and, much like Chile, the weather varies considerably depending on which part of the country you are in.

For north-west Argentina, which includes the areas around Salta, Juyjuy and Humahuaca, the ‘winter’, between May – August is their dry season, so it can be quite cold, particularly at night as you’ll be at altitude in the mountains, but it is typically dry. Having said that, you can get snow in some of the higher areas. The trouble with the opposite season, December – February, is that it is the rainy season. So, overall, you’re best going in the ‘shoulder’ seasons, around March/April or September to December.

For the southern part of the country, Patagonia is only really visitable between November and April. The best time in terms of the weather is December – February, which is the peak of their summer, however, it’s also good to bear in mind that it is the busiest time of the year. Going during the ‘shoulder’ season in November or March has its own benefits of spring flowers or changing autumn leaves and you’ll definitely find fewer tourists around.

Buenos Aires is very hot and humid during the summer months and can get pretty cold during the winter. Southern hemisphere spring and autumn are typically the best times to be here as well, unless you don’t mind the heat or the cold!

The wine region, around Mendoza, has its harvest during December to March, so although it’s hot, it’s a lovely time to experience the ‘vendimia’, as it’s called in Spanish. They have a special ‘vendimia’ festival the first week of March every year.

Finally, the Iguazu Falls are hot and tropical all year around. They do get slightly cooler in the winter months and even hotter during the summer months, but they are visitable all-year round.

Argentina Hotspots

Immerse yourself in Argentina’s rich culture and breathtaking landscapes. Buenos Aires, the cosmopolitan capital, dances with tango and history. Patagonia’s glaciers and mountains awe with their grandeur. Mendoza’s vineyards offer a taste of world-class wines. Iguazu Falls, on the border with Brazil, mesmerise with their power.

Patagonia

From the deep cobalt lakes in the north of Patagonia to the icy fjords and glaciers in the south, few first-time visitors to Chile come without exploring the natural beauty of this region. Dramatic mountain peaks in the Torres del Paine National Park are perfect for hiking and walking, with never-ending lofty views and landscapes that defy the imagination. The weather in Patagonia is as dramatic as its landscape, and it is at the mercy of the Antarctic winds, Pacific currents and mountain thermals.
