... - BUENOS AIRES (-)

Welcome to the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires. Upon arrival, you will be privately transferred to your hotel. (Early check-in not included).

BUENOS AIRES - IGUAZU (B)

In the morning you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Puerto Iguazu (flight is not included).

Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel. (Early check-in is not included).

Experience a half-day tour to the Brazilian side of the Iguazu National Park, where you can wander along the 'Cataratas trail' (distance 1.5 km / 1 mile) and enjoy panoramic views of one of the most beautiful natural landmarks in all of South America - the falls. At the end of the trail, a catwalk offers breathtaking views of the tallest waterfall, the 'Devil's Throat', before concluding at the top of the falls, accessed through a panoramic elevator.

FOZ DE IGUAZU (B)

You head towards the Argentine side of the Iguazu National Park for a day tour. The majority of the falls (approx. 80%) are on this side of the park covering an area of 550 km². Enjoy a walk along the upper and lower trails. The lower circuit (1400 m) has balconies with marvelous bottom-up views of the falls (the same falls that you see from above in the upper circuit).

The superior circuit is about 650 m long with a low degree of difficulty. This trail has six viewpoints with panoramic views of the falls. Between the two circuits, you will find the station to board the ecological train to reach the final station The Devil's Throat. At this point, a bridge (2200 m roundtrip) leads out over the Iguazu River and small islands ending at the mighty Devil's Throat.

The Devil’s Throat is 150 m (490 ft) wide and the tallest of all the falls having a height of 82 m (270 ft). The bridge goes right out to the head of the falls, so be prepared for plenty of sprays.

* The upper circuit has a low degree of difficulty and ramps making it suitable for handicapped visitors. The lower circuit requires more physical effort due to its stairs. If you have any physical impairment, we recommend avoiding the last section of this circuit.

FOZ DE IGUAZU - EL CALAFATE (B, L, D)

Explore and enjoy the thrill of riding in a helicopter over one of the greatest wonders of nature, the world-famous Iguazu Falls. You will embark on a 10-minute helicopter ride to soar high above the falls for unique, bird’s-eye views of this stunning landscape.

Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel.

Enjoy a stay at Eolo - a Relais Chateaux luxurious lodge. Situated within a vast estancia of 10,000 hectares on the Argentine wind-swept steppe, a land that can be described as a unique stage of spectacular nature, Eolo gives every guest the sense of Patagonia’s enormity. With a strategic location, about half an hour west of El Calafate on the way to Perito Moreno Glacier, the lodge’s 17 cozy suites maximize the unparalleled views with floor-to-ceiling windows. Built in an austere style inspired by the architecture of Patagonia’s estancias— the lodge’s interiors are designed with warm minimalism and impeccable taste with caved woods, refurbished antiques, and leather.

In the evening, after an active day of exploration relax in the indoor pool before indulging in a gourmet meal. Rates include all meals and non-alcoholic drinks, transfers from/to El Calafate airport, and activities such as trekking, private birding, and mountain biking within the estancia premises.

The glacier is a massive field of ice towering 60 m high (180 ft) and reaching five km across. You will be dropped off just in front of the glacier allowing you to stroll along the walkways to view the glacier from different viewpoints. Admire breathtaking views of the massive glacier during a walk along its base and watch for the dramatic moment when chunks of ice break off and crash into the waters of the ‘De los Tempanos’ Channel.
