Category: Cultural group tour,



Day 1: Arrive Buenos Aires
Arrival at Buenos Aires airport, meet your greeter and transfer to the hotel and check-in.


Day 2: Buenos Aires (B)
After breakfast you will visit the most important sites during a city tour. You will drive to the Plaza de Mayo, with the Casa Rosada, the pink house, seat of the government, the Cabildo (town hall) and the Metropolitan Cathedral, home of the Archbishop of Buenos Aires. The tour goes onto the district San Telmo. Until 1888 this part of the city was a river port, today San Telmo is one of the most modern and desired places to live in Buenos Aires. The worker district La Boca is famous for its colourful tin-houses and its history as living district of Italian seamen and dock workers in the 19th century. The Barrio Norte called Recoleta is the quarter of the rich of Buenos Aires. On the cemetery of Recoleta one will find the grave of Eva Duarte who became famous as Evita Perón. Continue along the widest avenue in the world, the Avenida 9 de Julio, to the Plaza Lavalle with the Federal Court of Justice and the Teatro Colón, to Palermo with its parks and gardens. Return to the hotel.


Optional: Visit of a typical Estancia incl. lunch

We leave the city and after a 2 hours drive to Los Cordales we will reach the Estancia Santa Susana, where the guests will be welcomed by Gauchos with a drink. There is time to visit the Estancia and the daily life of the Gauchos will be explained. Sulky and horse rides will show you the charm of Argentine countryside, its scenarios, and the incomparable wild aroma. After a rustic Barbecue (Asado) lunch with fine meat and sausages a folklore show will present regional music and dances. During the Fiesta Gaucha guests will experience these men's agility with their horses on the Estancia. After the afternoon coffee and tea time you will return to Buenos Aires.


Optional: Visit to the San Telmo market.

San Telmo is no doubt the best kept historical neighbourhood and eldest district of Buenos Aires. Here one has time to stroll around Plaza Dorrego, where each Sunday an antique market takes place. Tango couples are dancing on the street. Cafes invite to sit on their terrace and to relax by enjoying this nice scenery. Another attraction is the numerous antique shops, where one might find the right souvenir.


In the evening the following optional tour can be booked with your guide:

Optional: visit of a Tango Show incl. dinner at the Restaurant Viejo Almacen.


Day 3: Buenos Aires – Trelew – Puerto Madryn (B)
In the morning transfer to the national airport and flight to Trelew. Upon arrival in Trelew transfer to your hotel in Puerto Madryn, located on the Atlantic coast.


Day 4: Puerto Madryn – Valdes - Puerto Madryn (B)
Full day excursion to discover the wildlife and scenery of the nature reserve Valdés (seat-in). Unusual geographic features exist in Peninsula Valdes, providing the ideal scenery for the proliferation of several unique botanical and zoological species. Every year hundreds of whales swim through the southern seas to seek shelter in the quiet waters of the Nuevo and San Jose Gulfs during their breeding season. Thousands of sea-elephants roam along miles of beach on the east side of the peninsula. Rock, sand and gravel create the ideal setting for the world’s only land colony of these impressive mammals.


Optional: Whale watching tour can be booked with your guide (whales can be seen from May to mid of December).


Day 5: Puerto Madryn – Trelew - Ushuaia  (B)
In the morning visit Punta Tombo, one of the world’s largest colonies of Magellan Penguins on the main land. They are just everywhere: on the hills, on the road and in the sea - thousands of penguins.  Later on continue to the airport in Trelew for the flight to Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city on Fireland. Upon arrival at Ushuaia airport transfer to your hotel.


Day 6: Ushuaia (B)
In the morning you will go on a half day tour to the Tierra del Fuego National Park, where you will get the impression as if time goes slower than anywhere else. The long stormy winters and the width of the sky formed a very simple and modest way of living. The National Park is crossed by many rivers which flow into the Beagle Channel. Drive through the park to enjoy the landscapes and have a little walk.


In the afternoon the following optional tour can be booked with your guide.

Optional: Catamaran tour on the Beagle Channel

The Beagle Channel became its name due to the expedition from Charles Darwin. You will pass through the Casco Island where a lot of nest from seabirds and sea lions can be seen onto the Island Los Lobos to see the sea lions.


Day 7: Ushuaia - Calafate (B)
Transfer to the airport and flight to El Calafate. Pick up at the airport by our local guide and transfer to the hotel.


Day 8: Calafate – Perito Moreno - Calafate (B)
Today guests will go on a full day tour to the Perito Moreno Glacier (seat-in). After a drive through the National Park Los Glaciares one arrive all of a sudden in a forest full of colours, before one sees - equally unexpected - the glacier Perito Moreno. This is one of the few glaciers that are still growing. Every 4 to 5 years it covers the gap between the mainland and itself and grows into the Lago Argentino. Eventually the ice cannot resist the enormous pressure of the water and crashes with a frightening noise. One can watch this glacier spectacle every day when single ice blocks fall into the lake. Considering that the glacier is 5 km long and 70 m high one can imagine the noise this makes.


Day 9: Calafate – Puerto Natales (B)
In the morning transfer to the bus terminal. From here guests will travel with the public bus to Puerto Natales. Pick up at the bus terminal and transfer to the hotel.


Day 10: Puerto Natales – Torres Del Paine N.P - Puerto Natales (B)
After breakfast drive to the Torres del Paine National Park (seat-in). You will be able to appreciate the most spectacular worldwide reserve at the end of the world, 150 km northwest from Puerto Natales. On this this protected area you will find a fertile combination of lakes, lagoons, waterfalls, glaciers, hills and peaks. Inside the area, the road is surrounded with dozens of lagoon, contrasting with hills and snow capped mountains. You will visit among other things the Salto Grande waterfall. In the late afternoon drive back to the hotel.


Day 11: Puerto Natales – Punto Arenas – Puerto Montt- Puerto Varas (B)
Early morning transfer to the bus terminal in Puerto Natales and drive with the public bus (approx. 4 hours) to the city of Punta Arenas. Upon arrival at the public bus station, you will be welcomed by your local guide for a city tour through Punta Arenas, which was the first permanent settlement in Austral Patagonia. Started on the 18th of December 1848 as a small colony, in a couple of years it developed to be the most important cultural, commercial, and cattle raising centre of Patagonia. You proceed to a tour through the tidy laid out avenues and squares which host more than thirty monuments. Proceed to Cerro La Cruz, from where you can enjoy a fantastic panoramic view of the city and the Strait of Magellan. Afterwards continue to PUQ airport for your flight to Puerto Montt, in the Lake District of Chile. Upon arrival pick-up and transfer to the hotel in Puerto Varas, the “city of roses" overlooking Lago Llanquihue, one of Chile's largest lake, where the reflection of the eternally snow covers Osorno Volcano is mirrored in the clear waters.


Day 12: Puerto Varas (B)
Full day excursion by catamaran on Lake Todos Los Santo (Seat-in).


Day 13: Puerto Varas - Puerto Montt - Santiago (B)
Today it’s time to say good-bye to the lovely lake region full of volcanoes! Transfer to the Puerto Montt airport for the flight to Santiago de Chile. Upon arrival pick-up and transfer to the hotel.


Day 14: Santiago (B)
Santiago de Chile is a city of contrasts with remains of its colonial past to the ultramodern, high-rise buildings of the financial centre; Chile’s capital city will surprise you. You  will visit the main highlights in this half day city tour. Afterwards, you continue the tour by driving up to the San Cristóbal Hill. From one of the hill’s view points, you will have the finest views of Santiago and the Andes Mountains. To round off the tour, you will pass through the modern residential areas of the city with their daring architecture and, finally, the bustling Providencia shopping zone.
