Welcome to the “Little Switzerland of South America”; a romantic region of virgin green forests, snow-capped mountains and deep blue lakes. Argentina’s Lake District is an Eden for anyone looking for fresh air and stunning natural landscapes. Hiking, yachting, golfing, superb fishing, mountain biking and white water rafting are all possible in this fairytale-like setting.
Please note: this private Argentina tour is an example, as all of our luxury journeys are custom-made.
Upon arrival in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, your personal host will take you by private transfer to your 5-star hotel of choice. On the first day of your luxury Argentina tour, with your expert guide, you will discover the chic neighborhood of Recoleta home to the world-renowned Recoleta cemetery. In the evening, dine at an authentic “parilla” to savor some of the world’s best steak and malbec wine.
Begin the following day with a private tour of the magnificent Teatro Colón (with exclusive access to the theater’s backstage studios and dressing rooms). Visit the Plaza de Mayo with your private guide before continuing to the cobblestone streets of San Telmo with its artisans and antique shops. Following dinner, we will take you to the best tango show in town to watch this iconic dance firsthand. Alternatively, we can also organize a private biking tour through the gorgeous parks of the Palermo neighborhood, a personal shopper for insider access to the high-end Argentine shopping scene, or even a private tango lesson with a professional dancer.
Continue your private Argentina tour with a non-stop flight to Bariloche, where your personal host will take you to your luxury accommodation set in the heart of Argentina’s Lake District. Choose from a variety of lodging options, including the Llao Llao Resort & Spa, a historic, full-serviced hotel designed by famed architect Alejandro Bustillo; or the boutique Villa Beluno, a luxurious, lakefront, Italian-style villa with impeccably designed suites throughout.
On the afternoon of your first day, explore the Llao Llao Peninsula on a gentle hike through the Cohihue forest to a lookout point with beautiful views of the surrounding lakes and forests. The next day, take a short transfer to the base of Los Palotinos to begin a hike to a lookout point with panoramic views of Lake Nahuel Huapi and the surrounding peaks. Then descend either via rappel or on foot to a private picnic set up with gorgeous lake views. Afterwards, return via kayak along the Llao Llao Peninsula with your expert guide straight to the dock in front of your hotel, where you can rest after your active day.
Your luxury Lake District tour continues the following day with a private boating excursion on the magnificent Lake Nahuel Huapi to Victoria Island, located in the middle of the lake. Here you will hike up to a viewpoint with your expert guide before enjoying a gourmet picnic on a secluded beach on the island. Delight in the Argentine Lake District’s finest wines as you take in the spectacular landscape around you, before returning on your private boat to your hotel, stopping to swim in the crystal clear water of Lake Nahuel Huapi along the way.
On your last day, head to a local estancia where you may go horseback riding and kayaking at the lake on the ranch’s private property. Explore forest and mountain trails, canyons, waterfalls, accessing nearby hilltops with stunning views over lakes and mountains of the Continental Divide. Whilst at the property, enjoy a delicious gourmet picnic lunch. Alternatively, we can arrange fly-fishing on the Limay River, golfing on one of the most spectacular courses in South America, mountain biking and much more.
Throughout your visit, you can relax by the outdoor heated swimming pool of your luxury resort. Every evening, experience Bariloche’s world-class cuisine in one of the town’s many fantastic restaurants, which highlight the region’s a fusion of immigrant traditions from Central and Eastern Europe.
