Argentina, Iguazu & Chile Family Overland

From £1.0E+19 for 16 days
Trip Overview

An overland trip with kids is an absolute delight as long as there is plenty to do for everyone. On this trip we combine the sites and sound of the cosmopolitan cities of Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Santiago with some of the icons of South America. So after the restaurants and highlife of BA it’s off to the world’s most spectacular waterfall, which you will see from both the Argentine and the Brazil sides.

A flight takes us to the far side of the country to the city of Cordoba, where you will meet the truck and head into the beautiful hills, or Cordillera, above Cordoba and into the ranch lands of the Gauchos. Here we stay at a beautiful Anglo Argentine Estancia, called Estancia Los Postreros. This is home to two colourful characters, Kevin and Louisa Begg, who will be our hosts on the very traditional working estancia, complete with over 150 horses and 600 head of prime Aberdeen Angus cattle.

We then head to the wine lands of Mendoza and cross the Andes, past Mt. Aconcagua, the highest in South America before descending into the plains of Chile and to the beach and surf of Valparaiso for R & R and seafood.

Follow our Marketing Manager Alex as she and her family set off on this trip.
