Arrival, reception and transfer to your hotel.Day 2. BUENOS AIRES
After breakfast, enjoy an introductory private city tour with your knowledgeable guide who is also a local of the city. Buenos Aires is perhaps the most cosmopolitan metropolis in South America. Most of the population is of European descent and the city is reminiscent of Paris. It is situated on the Rio de la Plata, and as its name suggests, it is the city of good winds. The tour will include a visit to the Plaza de Mayo, the hub of the city centre and where many public buildings such as the Catedral Metropolitana can be found. At the east end, you will find the Casa Rosada presidential palace with the famous balcony from which Juan and Evita Peron greeted the masses.
After lunch (not included) your tour continues with a visit to Recoleta, one of the most fashionable areas of the city where you will visit the city's gardens of Plaza Alvear and Plaza Francia. You will also visit the famous cemetery where Eve Peron is buried.

After breakfast, transfer to the airport for the flight to El Calafate, located in Mainland Patagonia. Arrival and transfer to your hotel.We recommend the Kosten Aike. El Calafate is the site of the incredible Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the most dramatic natural sites left on earth. The Perito Moreno Glacier of Santa Cruz is a 60m (197ft) high river of rising, toppling and exploding ice, though it hasn't advanced for several years. A tour of the glacier with your private guide. You will also enjoy hiking on the actual Perito Moreno Glacier (under-55's only permitted). Those with a good level of fitness can now head much deeper into the glacier with a full-day hike. Peer into deep ice canyons, navigate your way along a frozen ridge, and try to grasp the sheer grandeur of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.Day 5. EL CALAFATE - EL CHALTEN (B & D)
Today you will depart for the remote and unspoilt setting of El Chalten, with the marvellous Fits Roy range dominating the skyline. This area is regarded as the Torres del Paine of Argentina but far less crowded. Upon arrival in Chalten, transfer to your hotel. Free day.
We recommend the Lunajuim Hotel.

We recommend one of the world's finest day hikes to Laguna Torre.
From El ChaltÚn you will trek to the base of the needle-shaped granite spire of Cerro Torre, a legendary challenge for mountaineers and rock climbers. The hike's pinnacle is on the shores of the blustery Laguna Torre, where the wind feels like it just may blow you over. Back in the shelter of the Fitz Roy River valley, you'll head back to town refreshed and exhilarated. Return to Lunajuim Hotel.
