  • Notes

    Style of our trip It's important to match expectations with any adventure into the unknown, and I always like to have a SKYPE chat, to find out the style of adventure you enjoy, and to make sure OTS is right for you. At OTS our adventurers are usually well travelled, independent, and generally fall into the 45-65 bracket, they are not into being rushed around ticking off sights, they are more into soaking up the atmosphere of a place and having some time to explore on their own. We stay on average 3-4 nights at each place, so its not packing and moving on a daily basis, its about enjoying the vibe, finding a coffee shop, and art gallery you like.

Highlights

  • Buenos Aires is the ''Paris of South America'', with its wonderful buildings, art, restaurants, beautiful people and eye popping gay night-life
  • Iguazu Falls one of the world's great natural wonders
  • Salta, high in the Andes, set in spectacular scenery and our base for 5 days exploring the high Andean landscapes
  • Bariloche and the stunning lakes district
  • World's best steaks and some fine red wine

For many travellers it’s been on their list of places to visit for many a year, yet often it remains an elusive destination. This OTS Adventure will show you the very best of what the country has to offer, from the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, to the Andean region of the north, the wineries of Cafayate and the spectacle national parks around Bariloche. All at our hallmark relaxed pace with a gay flavour.

It is time to make it happen so join us on the Argentine adventure!

Buenos Aires – Iguazu- Salta – Bariloche a 17 day adventure

Day 1-5 (5 nights hotel)
We start the trip in Buenos Aires, the cultural heart of Argentina, faded grandeur is how I would describe this city, which remains one of my all-time favourite travel destinations. There is tango, art, great food and entertainment, and of course one of Latin America’s most vibrant gay cities (though to access this you will need some major stamina as nothing gets going before 2am) we have a good amount of time here, giving you the opportunity to explore your own interests like the art galleries, architecture, etc either on your own, or join me for daily walks around San Telmo, La Boca, Palermo and Plaza de Mayo, we search for Evita’s resting place in the Recoleta cemetery, and explore the new city of Puerto Madero.
We will take a day trip to Tigre on the coastal train, and there is also the possibility of taking a return boat trip to the UNESCO world heritage town of Colonia del Sacramento, in Uruguay with its delightful cobbled streets and colonial houses.

Day 6-7 (2 nights hotel)
From Buenos Aires we fly to Iguazu Falls arguably the world’s most spectacular waterfall (site for the movie the Mission) exploring these awesome falls from both the Argentine and Brazilian side. There are rainforest walks and wildlife in abundance.

Day 8-12 (5 nights hotel)
Next we fly on to Salta in the foothills of the Andes with its Spanish Andean feel, great music and excellent food tradition. Salta will be our base to explore this fascinating region. We will take a 2 day and 1 overnight private tour with guide to see the “High Alta and the Salinas Grandes”, and a 1 day tour with guide south, visiting the towns of Cachi and the wine district of Cafayate before returning back to our base in Salta.

Day 13
We leave for Salta airport and fly via Buenos Aires connecting with our onward flight to Bariloche.

Day 14-16 (4 nights hotel)
The Lakes district is all about alpine splendour, magnificent vistas, wonderful day hikes through the national park, chocolate shops, juicy steaks, red wine and good company in the evenings. We will have either a minivan or 2 hire cars here for the duration of our stay, to self explore the splendours of the region.
Those who love day hikes in the mountains will be spoilt for choice, and those just wanting to take the odd day off to chill will have time to do so, as this is a fluid relaxing few days with no early starts and plenty of time to unwind in a stupendous setting. We will explore the alpine villages and lakes of the area, with optional lake trip to the chilean border.

Day 17 final day
After our last shared breakfast, the day is at leisure until your transfer time to the airport to fly to Buenos Aires connecting on to your onward flight or extending for a few days more in this amazing city.
