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 a 5-star hotel of your choice. On the first day of your luxury Argentina tour, you’ll discover Buenos Aires’ main sightseeing attractions, including some of the city’s museums and the world-renowned Recoleta cemetery. You’ll explore local fairs and antique markets, then take part in a private cooking class or wine tasting session with an expert sommelier.
During your stay, you can enjoy a private tango lesson followed by a traditional tango show, or attend a live performance at the famed Teatro Colón following a private tour of the landmark (with exclusive access to the theater’s backstage studios and dressing rooms). Should you wish, we can organize a private biking tour through the gorgeous parks of the Palermo neighborhood, where you will stop for a break to try mate (Argentina’s famous herbal tea) while surrounded by over 14,000 rose bushes in the Rosedal garden. In the evenings, dine on authentic gourmet meals and sample creative cocktails in the city’s finest restaurants and bars.
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, lakefront El Casco Art Hotel, which houses a large collection of art by renowned regional artists.
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 the vast Argentine Steppe and cross into the breathtaking Valle Encantado where you can discover caves and unique rock formations that are characteristic of the arid region. Additional activities include: fly-fishing on the Limay River, horseback riding at a private ranch, 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.
