If the soul of Brazil is expressed in its soccer team, the passion of Argentina is found within its pulse-stirring dance, the tango.

In Buenos Aires you’ll have plenty of opportunities to watch master classes in the art of the tango, as well as sample Argentina’s other famous products; sumptuous steak and world class wine.

Buenos Aires is a sophisticated city with its focus on style, fashion and art, but beyond its boundaries lie other wonders. The Iguazu Falls are spectacular in the extreme, whilst trekking or horse riding in the Nahuel National Park or exploring vast glaciers at Calafate are experiences you’ll remember for life. This itinerary encompasses all of these adventures, plus a stay at a beautiful vineyard at the very heart of Argentina’s wine country.
