Argentina

Argentina is a huge country in the southern part of Latin America, with terrain varying from tropical forests and red deserts of the north down through the Andes to Patagonia and to the tip of South America at Tierra del Fuego. Explore a wonderful country with a rich culture, sensuous tango dancing, passionate football supporters and fabulous steaks and wines!

The capital of Buenos Aires is the aviation hub with good internal flight connections and evidence of European settlers around the city in it’s architecture and culture. It is a cosmopolitan city with plazas, museums, fountains, wide streets and fabulous steak houses and restaurants. Make sure you enjoy a night at the Argentine Tango shows while you are here!

Head south to the Valdes Peninsula where you will encounter varied marine wildlife – huge penguin colonies, Southern Right Whales off shore and Elephant Seals basking on the beaches. The further south you venture the more mountain peaks and glaciers you will find, one of the countries greatest wonders is the Perito Moreno Glacier which is actually still growing!  Take a short trek on it or sail close to it.

From the Tierra del Fuego – land of fire – you can cruise on the Beagle Channel, take an expedition ship to Antarctica or sail the straights and channels of the Cape Horn to Chile. Ushuaia is the main airport and step off point here for Antarctica.  The Andes Mountains form the backbone of the South American continent and the natural border between Argentina and Chile, stretching in a long almost straight line providing one off the most scenic regions of the country.  There are over 20 gorgeous lakes in the Argentine Andes and with blue skies and snow capped mountains this is a wonderful destination for hiking and wilderness experiences.

To the north up the Andes, visit Mendoza, where a great climate combines with rich soils to produce top quality vineyards – try some wine tasting or stay on an estancia and ride the great open spaces. Horse riding is very popular here and locals use the horses to work the land on their ranches (estancias). The Pampas are vast fertile grasslands covering more than 285,000 sq miles and home to huge cattle ranches producing fabulous quality beef.  The closer you get north to the Tropic of Capricorn you will find forests and gorges, cactus deserts and the magnificent Iguazu Falls on the borders with Paraguay and Brazil.

Visit Argentina year round but the southern half is best enjoyed between October and April with peak months of December to February. British passport holders do not currently require a visa to visit Argentina and there are no compulsary health requirements.

So, give me a call and let me put together a tailor made holiday to Argentina, maybe combine with an Antarctic cruise, travels around other parts of South America or join a trekking group or adventure holiday.

 

Our honeymoon to Chile & Argentina was smoothly organised – our wishes were listened to and met, and changes were absorbed and dealt with, without fuss. Excellent service throughout. Highlights were Easter Island and the Atacama Desert … Travel With Jules took the time to get the details perfected - Jules listened to my requests, sorted out an itinerary, worked on the changes and then dealt with further changes (of mind) without any fuss. A first class service and highly recommended. This was a honeymoon trip to Chile and Argentina and it was a truly wonderful holiday.

My 6 and 8 year old daughters loved every minute and didn't want to come home, it was a perfect family holiday, with plenty to do and very educational for them but fun at the same time

Julie and John travelled with Exodus as part of a Peru Explorer group trip which included Nasqua Lines, Arequipa and Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca, Cusco and Machu Picchu and the Amazon.  As the Inca Trail was too busy they opted for the less well trodden ‘Moonstone Trek’ which still ended at Machu Picchu but much […]

For the last three years we have been using Jules to arrange our annual winter long haul holidays and have enjoyed travelling with someone else doing the organising in the full knowledge that should a problem occur we have a reliable point of contact who ensures that our enjoyment of the holiday isn't in any way spoiled. I would thoroughly recommend using 'Travel with Jules' to anyone contemplating wishing to travel on a wildlife & sightseeing adventure!

I work hard to be able to afford great holidays. I know that you Jules work very hard to make sure that I enjoy my holidays. I love the fact that you can take my fledgling dream for a trip, and transform it into real life; that you listen to what I would like to do, and adjust the finer details to fit my dream, never suggesting that my dream be squeezed into a pre-formed package.

We had a wonderful time in Peru - thank you for organising this, the people were lovely and I particularly enjoyed the train travel. The Amazon lodge was amazing and we did all the tours day and night!

As Andy was 50 this year, we wanted a special trip and Jules did an amazing job of organising our trip to Peru and Machu Picchu in May. Thanks to Jules the trip was stress free and very enjoyable.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
