Day 1 – Start Your Argentina Vacations: Buenos Aires

 

Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to the city and you’ll have the rest of the day to enjoy Buenos Aires at your own pace. Buenos Aires is a marvelous, energetic, cosmopolitan city, full of color and different styles of architecture. 

 

The capital of Argentina, and described as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires proudly embraces its title, and also shows off plenty of its own culture! Argentinians are usually eager to host visitors; if you walk the streets with a map, someone will surely stop and ask if you need directions… that’s just our spirit! 

 

So, for this first day, feel free to wander the cobblestone streets lined with outdoor cafes, enjoy the mouthwatering aroma of world-famous Argentine beef sizzling on an open parrilla (barbeque), and browse the local antique and artisan markets that offer plenty of bargain shopping.

Day 2 – Buenos Aires City Tour & Tango Show

 

In the morning we’ll pick you up to enjoy our 5-hour Buenos Aires city tour—you will be swept away by the highlights of our beloved Buenos Aires. Over the course of a half-day you will have the chance to visit the historical and political center of the city; Plaza de Mayo and the Pink House (the presidential house).

 

Next, we’ll move on to San Telmo, with its cobblestone streets and the oldest residential neighborhood, and then to La Boca where Buenos Aires turns colorful and tango is ever-present. Come walk Caminito Street and dance with the locals. The next stop is the chic and aristocratic Recoleta, where the big palaces remind us why Buenos Aires is called the “Paris of the South”.

 

In the evening we’ll pick you up from your hotel to take you to a mystical place where you’ll discover one of our most ancient traditions. Tango is more than our national dance… tango is our immigrant origins, the talent of our local artists, the sensuality of Argentine women and our way to deal with a broken heart; dancing our way through tragic, and yet eternal, love stories.

 

Tonight you will enjoy a 3-hour professional display of tango and music with a group of local artists onstage immersed in an elegant and alluring place. The manners, ambience, clothes and dance steps which tango-lovers used to practice 100 years ago will come to life again and you will travel back in time for a night.

 

This spectacular demonstration of the finest local dancing will be accompanied by delicious Argentine and international cuisine. Dinner is all-inclusive, beverages included so you can lose yourself in the ethereal taste of Malbec wine. At the end of the evening, around midnight, you will be driven back to your hotel, fully in love with the bohemian spirit of our this incredible city.

This morning, we’ll pick you up at your hotel to start one of the most famous and traditional visits to the Lake District. For around 6 hours you will tour the area in an active way, and your guide will be constantly focused on sharing the vast history of the area and the most relevant facts about the natural heritage of Bariloche.

 

You will visit Campanario Hill, considered by National Geographic to be the 8th-best view in the world, and one of the most visited places here—1500 people go to enjoy the view every day.

From there, you’ll visit Cascada de los Cántaros (Cántaros Waterfall) and take a walk through the lush vegetation of the Valdivian rainforest, arriving at Lago Cántaros, where a dignified 1,500-year-old larch tree will be waiting.

 

A short 5-minute sail later, you will finally arrive at Puerto Blest, one of the heavenly ports of Nahuel Huapi Lake, a secluded place that has amazed travelers from all over the world with its beautiful vegetation – one of the most varied in Bariloche – and its relaxed atmosphere created by the mountains and the surrounding Valdivian Forest.

 

From there, you’ll be able to tour the bay, eat your boxed lunch and walk the shores of Lake Frías to see its peculiar green waters, which help to form the natural border between Argentina and Chile. At the end of this full-day experience, we’ll drive you back to Bariloche.

Day 6 – Patagonia Hiking: from Bariloche to El Calafate / El Chalten

 

We’ll pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the airport to take your flight to El Calafate where, upon arrival, you’ll take a minivan directly to El Chaltén, the ‘Trekking Capital of Argentina’.

 

You’ll travel along the famous Route 40, surrounded by the Patagonian steppe, and pass through La Leona River, which connects Lake Argentino and Lake Viedma, and where you’ll get to see La Leona Road house, where the famous thieves Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid hid for a while. After discovering some other gems along your journey, you’ll reach El Chaltén and we’ll drop you off at your hotel.

 

El Chaltén is the top-rated hiking destination in Argentina. This charming little village sits at the foot of Mount Fitz Roy and it’s surrounded by glaciers, lakes, rivers and forests. It’s also the jumping-off point for most hiking trails in the area. A paradise for sunny walkers and trekkers alike. Enjoy your first afternoon of leisure in Patagonia by relaxing in the local brewery or strolling around a little waterfall…

Day 7 – Self-Guided Hiking in Chalten: Mountains and Lakes

 

Today, be prepared for an exciting journey into the wild. El Chaltén offers a wide range of hiking paths with varied difficulties. You can choose where and when to go, since paths are self-guided and very well marked and maintained.

 

From the main door of your hotel, you can go for an easy 2-mile walk to Cerro Torre viewpoint — it will only take you around 1 hour. Enjoy the sounds of Rio de las Vueltas, take in some amazing views of the lenga forest, and be prepared to see all kinds of birds—this is a great woodpecker-spotting opportunity!

 

For true hiking-lovers, our next hiking favorite is Laguna de los Tres and the base of Mount Fitz Roy. Go for a medium-difficulty, 9-hour hike to the most impressive views of Rio de Las Vueltas valley. You’ll cross Del Salto Stream, with its icy waters cradled by orange-tinted rocks which frame the breathtaking views of Mount Fitz Roy. And here’s a little secret: you can also reach Laguna Sucia from Laguna de los Tres… it’s only a 5-minute walk away. Though this hike increases in intensity during the last bit, it’s totally worth it. This is one of the best day-hikes in the world!

Day 8 – From El Chalten, Back to El Calafate

 

Enjoy an early walk around town or a quick hike this morning. We recommend that you walk to El Chorrillo del Salto, 1 hour away from the village, and reach its little waterfall encircled by native trees and flora, like the Patagonian Orchid.

 

Bear in mind that in the afternoon you will board your bus back to El Calafate, so you need to be back in time. The 3-hour drive back will be a good opportunity to relax while enjoying the passing landscapes out your window.

 

Once you arrive in El Calafate, the bus will drop you off at your hotel. Now is your chance to try some tender Patagonian Lamb, or maybe a heavenly Calafate ice-cream. In Calafate, food options are varied and plentiful; from veggie delicacies to the best demonstration of national steaks, there really is something for everyone. You can choose a fancy restaurant for dinner, or a more traditional local tavern to spend an unforgettable night.

Day 9 –El Calafate: Perito Moreno Glacier Tour

 

In the morning, we’ll bring you to Glaciers National Park to take the 6-hour Perito Moreno Glacier Tour. Get prepared to get up-close and personal with these icy giants!

 

Glaciers National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981, and is home to approximately 200 glaciers. Half of this park is occupied by the campo de hielo patagónico (Patagonian ice field), the largest ice field in the world, outside of Antarctica.

 

You will travel about 25 miles from El Calafate to the park, enjoying the views of the Patagonian steppe along the way. Once inside the park, you will follow the walkways to explore the different viewpoints, and you’ll feel incredibly close to the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. If you’re lucky, you may get to see a piece of ice break off and fall from the glacier wall to sink forever into the lake below.

 

Over the course of an hour, a bilingual guide will provide you with all the information you might want to know… you will learn things about this unique Patagonian environment that you may have never thought about. After this visit, you will take a boat that will bring you close enough to fully appreciate the 262-foot-high ice walls of Perito Moreno! You’ll never feel closer to this gigantic and impressive natural masterpiece.

Day 10 – Visit Torres del Paine, Chile

 

In the early morning, we’ll pick you up to start your trip to Chile and your full-day visit to Torres del Paine National Park. It’s going to be a long day, but it’s worth every minute. 

 

First, we’ll drive through the Patagonian steppe for 2hr 30min (you might be able to see rheas, guanacos, hare, and even condors!) until reaching the border of Chile in Cancha Carrera, where we’ll go through customs. 

 

We’ll keep traveling through isolated and windy landscapes, occasionally dotted by guanacos and native green-orange-tinted bushes; you’ll truly feel the momentous solitude which characterizes Patagonia. Torres del Paine is a gift that keeps on giving; it will unveil its enthralling natural beauties little by little… 

 

Along a winding road, we’ll make different stops to have a close-up view of various attractions like Cascada Paine (Paine Waterfall), Paine Range at Lake Sarmiento, and the Paine Horns at Lake Nordenskjold. Depending on the weather, we’ll depart on an hour-long walk to reach the lake and get closer to the striking mountain peaks. At midday, after having stopped by the Lago Pehoé Viewpoint to gaze at the vastness of the French Valley, we’ll have our boxed lunch with this mountainous backdrop. 

 

At the end of this dreamy travel experience, we’ll leave you at Laguna Amarga, where your transfer will pick you up and take you to your hotel inside the park.

Day 11 – Torres del Paine National Park, Self-Guided

 

Torres del Paine is one of the most beautiful protected areas of South America, and the best way to explore it is by foot. If you like hiking and nature, this should be one of the highlights of your trip. Depending on which area of the Park you are staying in, you will be able to explore different paths — please check with your travel advisor about which are the best options from your location.

 

Our recommendation is to take a solo hike to Base de las Torres del Paine. This is the most famous hike in the park since it takes you to the base of the Paine Horns (8500 f.o.s.l.), a challenge for climbers all over the world. It takes 8-10 hours round-trip. 

 

The first 2 hours of the trek are very tiring, since you are walking up, leaving the valley where the Hosteria and Torres del Paine Refuge are located. You’ll cross Ascensio Valley, taking its winding path and gazing over Ascensio River until getting to the first stop, Refugio El Chileno. From here, you’ll continue for one hour through a lenga forest — the changing landscapes will combat any tiredness! 

 

You’ll finally get to the moraine; the last beat of the trek, and the hardest. The last hour will be an uphill climb, but take your time, you’ll definitely make it to the top! Every effort will be compensated with breathtaking views of these massive granite mountains that grow past a blue lake and up to the sky.

Day 12 – From Torres del Paine to Punta Arenas, a True Patagonia Adventure!

 

Today, we’ll take you on a 5-hour ride from your hotel inside Torres del Paine National Park to your hotel in Punta Arenas.

 

Punta Arenas is the southernmost city in Chile, located on the Magellanic Strait, and is the leading port for Antarctic cruises and scientific research. Before the construction of the Panama Canal, Punta Arenas was the most important maritime crossroad between the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, and thus, the city grew as a commercial center surrounded by European-style buildings. Its colorful houses, standing out from a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, are a sight for sore eyes. 

 

What should you do in Punta Arenas? You can enjoy the evening by taking a 3-hour city tour to learn about the history of the city, visit the Mirador Hill (and get the most gorgeous views of Magellan Strait), or stop by the Maggiorino Borgatello Museum to see the masterfully crafted pieces made by the Onas, Yaganes and other natives of the area.

Day 13 – Travel to Ushuaia, the End of the World!

 

In the early morning, you will get to the bus station to embark on a full-day bus trip to Ushuaia. Take into account that you’ll be crossing borders again today!

 

This is a 12-hour trip in a comfortable bus, equipped with reclining seats, where you’ll cross the Patagonian steppe. Look out the window and you’ll see yellow and green grasslands with Chilean gauchos riding into the wild and grazing unbothered sheep, until you reach the ferry crossing. It will take around 45 minutes to cross the mythical Strait of Magellan and hit the road again to cross the Chilean border, finally entering Tierra del Fuego Island on Argentine soil.

 

As the famous end-of-the-world city approaches, grazing sheep will turn into wild guanacos and horses, with snow-capped mountains and evergreen woods arising at the entrance to Ushuaia. Once you get your “Southernmost City” passport stamp, you’ll realize that this intrepid journey through remote Patagonian roads was absolutely worth it.

  

Upon arrival in Ushuaia, you will journey to your hotel (taxis to and from the bus station should cost less than $10 US dollars). Ushuaia is a small town, and it is really easy to get around on foot. The Yamanas, the region’s first inhabitants, first called the area ‘Ushuaia’, which means “protected bay” in their language. Ushuaia was officially incorporated into the Republic of Argentina in 1884, and it soon became a penal colony, in order to establish a permanent Argentine settlement.

 

Take the afternoon to explore the town, learn about the region’s rich history at the Prisoners’ Museum, or visit the Galleria of Fuegian History (it has a lovely restaurant as well!). Please, don’t forget the local gastronomy! Ushuaia has the best seafood in Argentina.  

 

*This bus trip allows you to see the landscape of other, lesser-known parts of Chile, and will give you a much more complete perspective of the area. However, we understand that it is a long journey, and can be a very tiring day. For an additional cost, you can choose a less adventurous option; from Torres del Paine, you can drive back to El Calafate and then fly to Ushuaia.

Day 14 – Ushuaia: Trekking & Canoeing in the National Park

 

Today we’ll pick you up for an 8 to 10-hour, moderate difficulty, adventure in Tierra del Fuego National Park, just 7.4 miles away from the city and bordering the shore of the famous Beagle Channel.

 

Once at Ensenada Bay, you will have time to enjoy the view over the Beagle Channel before you start hiking along the coast. Four miles of trail awaits you, where you’ll discover native flora, wild fauna and the remains left by the Yamanas, the native inhabitants of the area. After this 3-hour hike, you will reach Lake Roca, where lunch will be served.

 

After a full homemade picnic, you will start the second part of this adventure. Take your oar and plunge into a 1hr 30min canoeing trip along the Lapataia River (only available for children over 5 years old). Make it all the way to Lapataia Bay, where the Panamerican Highway and National Route 3 end at an awe-inspiring landscape.

 

After discovering the unique vastness of this stunning setting, we’ll take you back to your hotel to rest and enjoy another Patagonian evening.

Argentina standing at your left and Chile at your right, you’ll sail this natural border until reaching the iconic Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, which is still in operation.

 

On the way, enjoy uplifting panoramic views of Ushuaia Bay, crowned by the Martial Glacier’s diverse marine wildlife, such as cormorants (flying birds, closely related to penguins) and seals. Hop off on Bridges Island to explore its vegetation and visit the archeological remains of the Yámanas while accompanied by a specialized bilingual guide. 

 

During the trip, enjoy bottomless hot cocoa and cookies, or try the maté (loose herbal tea), which is every Argentinian’s favorite drink.  Once we get back to the port, you’ll make your way back to your hotel.

Puerto Madryn is the closest city to the famous Peninsula Valdés, where the Southern Right Whales come every year to mate and raise their calves. Thousands of travelers make the annual journey to participate in this natural spectacle!

 

In fact, Peninsula Valdés is a Natural Reserve that was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, and it’s home to many different mammals and birds which can only be seen in this part of the globe.

To get to Peninsula Valdes, you will cross an incredibly narrow strip of land that is sandwiched by the sea on either side. Further along the journey, you will arrive at Caleta Valdes, a large natural creek that is home to a colony of elephant seals who will happily pose for photos.  

 

After admiring Caleta Valdes and its animal inhabitants, you will continue along the road as it winds through a crescent of golden cliffs overlooking the bright blue bay of Golfo Nuevo and the picturesque village of Puerto Piramides. This is a classic spot for whale watching; every year whales arrive to the bay to mate and raise their calves, which is a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle to see.

 

You will take a 2-hour boat trip around the Golfo Nuevo bay and watch these immense creatures gliding past. This peninsula navigation allows you to get incredibly close to the whales!

That endless land at the edge of the horizon is still home to the descendants of the first ‘gauchos’ (Argentine cowboys), who still care for and work the land as their ancestors taught them to.

 

If you decide to take this tour, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and take you a traditional village, 2 hours away from Buenos Aires, where you’ll learn about the gaucho culture and traditions as you stroll around the beautiful old streets, museums and ancient ‘pulperías’ (grocery stores).

 

Then, we’ll head to a colonial-style working ranch built in 1880 where you’ll enjoy a typical ‘asado’ (barbecue) before either a horseback ride in nature or a relaxing bike ride. For those who like to take things slow while on vacation, there is a peaceful swimming pool and many sunny relaxation areas where you can take ‘la siesta’ (an afternoon nap), a very important ritual, deeply rooted in Argentina’s rural culture.

 

At the end of the day, we’ll take you back to your hotel in Buenos Aires to enjoy your last evening in the city that never sleeps.

 

 

 

Say Hueque Tips

How you would like to spend your last hours in the city? Here are some ideas…

 

You can explore the cobblestone, tree-lined streets of Palermo Soho in search of some one-of-a-kind Porteño fashion stores and the district’s notable graffiti circuit. Or you may want to stop by one of our historic cafes (called “cafés notables”) located all over the city and have a “cortado”, the most popular Argentine coffee choice. If you’re leaving on a Saturday or Sunday, you may also have the chance to visit one of the city markets, only open on weekends.

 

After saying your goodbyes to our marvelous city, you will be transferred to the international airport for your flight back home.

Say Hueque was great to work with and created a perfect trip for us!

I am happy to give feedback about our travels in Argentina! We had a great time!

1. I chose Say Hueque based on several things including great reviews, comprehensive custom tour offerings at good prices and personal service.

2. Agustin was very efficient and helpful in all aspects of the booking process. He created a perfect combination of tours in the selected destinations including all transfers. Payments were simple and easy via PayPal and it worked great that all three of us could pay individually. He was also very patient will all of my questions via email and wrote back promptly with advice and suggestions. He also communicated with me while we were in Argentina about concerns with a possible pilot’s strike by Aerolineas Argentina and helped resolve the changes that we needed to do both before and after the strike was resolved. Kudos to your emergency crew as well who were aware of everything that was going on with us and were right on top of things. I had to call them several times with issues related to the threatened strike and also a transfer at the end of our trip. Great job all round!

3. My favorite hotel was probably Dazzler Palermo though I would have liked a hotel that was a little closer to Recoleto or San Telmo areas as it turned out. Most of the other hotels had large rooms and friendly staff. Koi Aiken in El Calafate was also pretty far outside the center of town but we liked the hotel otherwise. The one place that we didn’t care for was De Los Andes in Ushuaia. The triple room we had was very small, barely room for three beds and we had to squeeze by one of the beds to get to the bathroom. The hotel seemed very old and needs some updating. The location was very nice though. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel.

5. We really liked all of our excursions in Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego hike and canoe, Trek to Esmerelda Lagoon and Beagle Channel cruise) but also the Peninsula Valdes tour to Punta Norte from Puerto Madryn because of all the animals that we saw that day.

6. Our two favorite guides were:
Tina for our walking tour in Buenos Aires. She took us to the southern part of the city to San Telmo and La Boca and was very easy to talk with and very informative.
Daniel in Ushuaia for our Tierra del Fuego hike and canoe and also the trek to Esmerelda Lagoon. He gave us two very good days of activity and is very knowledgeable about the area.

7. I think the only thing that we were disappointed in was the hotel in Ushuaia, otherwise we absolutely loved the entire trip! We all agreed that Say Hueque was great to work with and created a perfect trip for us! Thanks so much!


I will also plan to write a TripAdvisor review too in the next few days.

You coordinated the land content, local transfers and flights to make it a smooth trip with minimal overlaps and provided good contact details for us to use if we were in difficulty

Hello Patricia,

Please see below answers to your questions and I am happy for you to use my comments in your marketing:

I chose Say Hueque because it was able to work with me to develop a 30 day tour of some of the most interesting places in South America spread across 3 countries. I obtained Say Hueque contact from the website search I preformed.


You coordinated the land content, local transfers and flights to make it a smooth trip with minimal overlaps and provided good contact details for us to use if we were in difficulty.

Our favourite hotel was Aranwa Scared Valley. The hotel was very well designed. The rooms were spacious, modern and had all the extras you would see in a good 5 star hotel. The grounds were well maintained and the landscaping was very interesting. Besides a theatre with evening shows and popcorn, there was an art gallery, well restored church, great pool area and many dining options. The staff were always helpful and worked well with our travel agent manage our bags left behind.

The day trip to Valpariso and Machu Picchu, were the best!

Alejandro in Santiago was the best guide on the whole tour.

Yes, perhaps better warn guest about counterfiet money in Argentina. I took $2000 peso from an ATM in Buenos Aires and $300 was fake. Also bus drives coming to pick up guest should check the guest names when collecting us. We were taken to the wrong tango show.

I will send you by whatsapp some photos.

Regards,

Jerome

I especially liked that Say Hueque would check in with my sister and I during our trip; just asks how we were doing and if we needed anything else from them. They also added suggestions on things to do and places to stay while we worked together to plan the trip. It's that extra amount of helpfulness that made me really like Say Hueque and I might actually start working with more travel agents in the future.

I googled numerous travel agencies in South American and Say Heuque was the first company to respond politely and promptly. Patricio was very friendly and willing to work with all the changes I kept making in my itinerary.

I loved being able to walk off a plane or bus and know that someone was there to meet me and take me to my hotel. Made everything go smoothly and I didn't have to worry about dealing with taxis, being harassed, etc. All excursions I asked for were for the most part in small groups, just as advertised, and with good companies and friendly guides. The stress of making sure everything happened in a timely manner and was organized was taken care of by Say Hueque, so I only had to show up when I was told to and enjoy myself.

I only stayed in one hotel that Say hueque booked and that was the Jasy Hotel in Iguazu. i thought it was lovely. Slightly outside of the center of town (1 km), but the beautiful jungle setting and large rooms made up for that. Plus great breakfast and I was told by other guest that they served great dinners.

Loved walking on the Perito Moreno Glacier. It was amazing. The guide was super nice and the glacier was beautiful. The tour to see the penguins in Ushuaia was also a great half day trip. We were suppose to be on the full day trip, but turned out that we got booked on the half day excursion which ended up being better because we only had 10 people in our group as opposed to 50 (if we'd been on the full day).

Ricardo from Puerto Varas - LS Travel that took us to Frutillar was amazing. He really knew how to talk to people, spoke equal amounts of Spanish and English, making sure to include everyone in the conversations, not treating the English speakers as a sidetone.

We ended up with an airline strike, trapping us in Ushuaia. I know that Say Hueque informed our next destination hotel and tours we would not be arriving on time, but they did not tell us. If there is another strike or a cancelation on some travel plans that Say Hueque booked, I feel you should tell all parties involved - the hotels, the tours, and your clients (us) that something happened. It was not fun sitting in an airport for 6 hours when all we needed to do was actually just call the airline to find out we could get new tickets for 3 days later. We didn't even need to be at the airport and we could have avoided going there if we knew ahead of time, like Say Hueque did, that there was a strike

Overall, I believe that everyone we meet and talked to at Say Hueque was wonderful. At no time did I feel like I was cheated or scammed. I've never used a travel company before and for this being my first experience with one, I was very unsure at first, but after touching down in Buenos Aires and being met by Rodrigo, a travel host, who gave us his email and phone number and told us to call anytime if we had questions or problems, I was reassured.

We experienced a few hiccups in our journey for the month we were in Patagonia, but Rodrigo and Patricio promptly responded to my emails and the 24 hour hotline really is 24 hours. The issues were resolved and our trip wasn't hindered at all. Everything always ended up working out. The airline strike issue was the only flaw with Say Hueque, but I don't think they are used to dealing with plane strike since they are very rare, so i can't fault them too much. Plus the strike effected tons of Say Hueque travelers, not just me and my sister, so Say Hueque did have their hands full.

I would definitely recommend Say Hueque to anyone going to Argentina or Chile. I usually plan everything by myself, but since the countries are so big and it is hard to book buses, planes, and some tours from America (month priors to actually going to the countries and during the high tourist season), it was very nice to know that I had a personal travel agent helping me make the best possible trip I could with the amount of time I had for vacation and total amount of money I planned to spend for the trip. Everything worked out quite well. I very much enjoyed by trip, the tours that I went on, and knowing that everything ran smoothly.

I especially liked that Say Hueque would check in with my sister and I during our trip; just asks how we were doing and if we needed anything else from them. They also added suggestions on things to do and places to stay while we worked together to plan the trip. It's that extra amount of helpfulness that made me really like Say Hueque and I might actually start working with more travel agents in the future.


I'll post something to travel advisor as well. Thank you for everything Rodrigo. You've been amazingly helpful and i had a great time in Patagonia.

Thanks,

Em
