It’s hard to pack in all the highlights in two weeks but good transport links make it possible to visit the subtropical Iguazú Falls on the Brazilian border, the exquisite lake district around Bariloche, and the glaciers of the far south in Patagonia.
But as with all our tailor-made suggested holidays they are flexible: if you’d like to tweak the trip a bit, perhaps choose different hotels, or add in an extra place or visit or excursion, please contact us and one of our specialists will help you come up with your perfect holiday.

Buenos Aires: Novotel
This sleek, modern hotel is located on Avenida Corrientes in the city centre, close to some of the capital's best restaurants and shopping.The style is contemporary and minimalist in design-It’s cool and quirky at the same time.
Tierra del Fuego: Hotel Los Acebos
This four-storey hotel is situated above the bay, 2km from town. Décor is at its most appealing in its 60 guestrooms; each has private bath and shower, and vistas over Ushuaia and the Beagle Channel.
Iguazú Falls: Panoramic Hotel Iguazú
Ever since its refurbishment in 2007 we’ve been impressed with this striking property on a hilltop overlooking the Iguazú and Parana rivers with unobstructed views over the water and forest. From here it is 30 minutes' drive to the Iguazú Falls. The modern design and décor of the 1940s building are unique in this area.
Lake District: La Cascada.
We love La Cascada’s setting, perched high above the shore of Lake Nahuel Huapi in Argentina’s Lake District, and there’s a rather English familiarity to its appearance which makes one soon feel at home.
Buenos Aires: Caesar Park Hotel
The first class Caesar Park is set in the fashionable Recoleta district, with its parks, fine restaurants and boutiques. It's a modern tower block of 18 floors. The public areas are more ornate than the guestrooms, which are designed in classic style but with very high quality furnishings.
Iguazú Falls: Sheraton Iguazú Resort and Spa
Look no further if you want a hotel close to the Iguazú Falls on the Argentine side – this is the only one, and a great choice it is too. A first class, well-maintained and managed resort, it is more than just a base for visiting the Falls. There’s an outdoor pool, tennis courts, gym, comprehensive spa and good restaurant.
Patagonia: Kosten Aike Hotel
Upmarket, airy hotel with a cheerful Alpine or even Scandanavian feel, right in the centre of El Calafate town within easy reach of the shore of Lago Argentino and shops and restaurants.
Tierra del Fuego: Hotel Los Cauquenes
A top class hotel right on the shores of the Beagle Channel, but close to the busy port of Usuahaia. It's built in Alpine style, with the accent on comfort, and has its own spa, heated pool and smart, high quality restaurant.
Lake District: El Casco Art Hotel
You cannot deny this innovative hotel its name: it really is devoted to the exposition of art, alongside the offer of luxurious accommodation.The low-rise property is located right on the shores of the cobalt waters of Lake Nahuel Huapi, about a 10-minute drive from Bariloche.
