GLACIERS, FALLS & TANGO – 8 Days

Visit Perito Moreno Glacier, Iguazu Falls & Buenos Aires

Tour Iguazú Falls’ majestic waterfalls, walk alongside Patagonia’s Perito Moreno Glacier, and then discover sexy tango in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires on this 8 day trip. From the steamy jungles of Iguazú to the cool glaciers of Patagonia, Argentina’s dramatic landscapes and rich culture will make it easy to fall in love with South America.

Day 1 – Welcome to Argentina: travel to Buenos Aires

 

Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to the city and you’ll have the rest of the day to enjoy the city at your own pace. Buenos Aires is a marvelous, furious, cosmopolitan city, full of plenty of colours and different kind of architecture. Capital of Argentina and described as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires proudly embraces this title, as well as showing off plenty of its own culture! Argentines 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 our spirit! So, for this first day, be free to wander the cobblestone streets lined with outdoor cafes, enjoy the mouthwatering aroma  of prized Argentine beef sizzling on an open “parrilla” (barbeque), and browse the local antique and artisan markets that offer plenty of bargain shopping.

Day 2 – Discover Buenos Aires: city tour & tango show

 

In the morning you will enjoy our traditional 3 hour long 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 around May Square (Plaza de Mayo) and the Pink House (the presidential house). San Telmo with its cobblestone streets and  the oldest residential neighborhood and La Boca where Buenos Aires turns colorful and tango is ever present: come to walk Caminito street and dance with the locals.

 

The next stop: Puerto Madero where the city gets modernized, Retiro where the cutting-edge Kavanagh building rises like the guardian of the neighbourhood. Continue to the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires: Palermo, which is divided in 3 main sections (Palermo Viejo, Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood). This tour will end at the chic and aristocratic Recoleta, where the big palaces remind us that Buenos Aires was once the “Paris of the South”. Discover the final resting place of Eva Perón, “Evita” and wander through Recoleta Cemetery where she is to be found.

 

 

In the evening you will be picked up from your hotel to be driven 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 the Argentine woman and our way to deal with a broken heart, dancing our way through tragical and yet eternal love stories. Tonight you will enjoy a 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 in time for a night.

 

This spectacular demonstration of the finest local dancing will be accompanied by delicious Argentine and international cuisine. Dinner is à la carte, 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 beloved Buenos Aires.

Day 3 – Fly from Buenos Aires to El Calafate

 

Today you will fly to El Calafate home of Southern Patagonia’s crown jewel: the Perito Moreno glacier. The Perito Moreno glacier is one of the only glaciers in the world that’s still advancing.  Though it’s not the only glacier in the area is the one that made the city of El Calafate famous worldwide.

 

For many years now, El Calafate has been considered capital of the glaciers. Located at the shore of Lago Argentino (the southernmost, largest Patagonian lake) it’s also home of the Spegazzini glacier, which forms the natural border between Argentina and Chile, and the Upsala glacier, named “Glaciar del Gigante” (Giant’s glacier) upon its discovery and the biggest glacier that sits at the mouth of Lake Argentino.

 

So is El Calafate all about the glaciers? Well, yes and no…glaciers are main attractions that you can visit via hiking or a boat ride. But you have lot more to discover about Argentine rural culture. From Calafate you can also visit a typical Patagonian “finca” (ranch) and learn all about the gaucho culture  and enjoy a great “asado” (barbecue). You’ll soon realize that Calafate is much more than the gateway to the Perito Moreno glacier.  

 

 

Upon arrival you will be taken to the hotel and have the rest of the day to relax or explore the areas around the town.

We know you want to know more about El Calafate, so take a look to our Calafate travel guide to find more practical information about the city. Our advice: if you feel like exploring a bit on your own, go on the 1 km hike out to Laguna Nimez for a beautiful Patagonian sunset.

Day 4 – El Calafate: Perito Moreno Glacier

 

In the morning, you will depart to Glaciers National Park to take the 6 hour long Perito Moreno Glacier tour. Get prepared to play with the giants!

 

Glaciers National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1981 and home to 200 approximately glaciers. Half of this park is occupied by the campo de hielo patagónico (Patagonian ice field), the largest ice field after Antarctica. You will travel 40 km (about 25 miles) from El Calafate to the park, enjoying the views of the Patagonian steppe. Once inside the park you will take the walkways to explore the different viewpoints, and you’ll feel really close to the 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.

 

During about one hour, a bilingual guide will provide you with all the information you might want to know…and things you might have never thought about. After this visit you will take a boat ride that will take you close enough to fully appreciate the 80 meter (262 feet) high ice walls of Perito Moreno! You’ll never feel closer to this gigantic and impressive natural masterpiece.

Day 5 – Travel from El Calafate to Puerto Iguazú

 

Today you will leave the freezing weather and fly to the jungle, to Puerto Iguazú. The small border town of Puerto Iguazú is the gateway to visit the impressive Iguazú Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage site, making it a must-see destination for any traveler visiting Argentina.

 

Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport and provided a transfer to your hotel. Answer the call of vacations and take your time to relax at your hotel. If you’re eager to explore, you can visit the “Hito tres fronteras”, a viewpoint west of the town center that stands high above the turbulent reddish-brown junction of the Iguazú and Paraná rivers, which also form the Triple Frontera, or Triple Border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. Or visit the Güirá Oga (the house of birds in native Guaraní language), the sanctuary for animals hurt by illegal hunting and trapping.

Day 6 – Iguazú Falls tours: Argentine side

 

Today our driver and bilingual guide will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the Iguazú National Park, on the Argentinian side.

 

The falls are surrounded by a humid subtropical forest where the exuberant vegetation is home to many different animals and birds. Our guide will help you spot some of them: ant birds, toucans, manakins, parrots, coatis, just to name a few of the most common birds. Lower and upper walkways weave in and around falls permitting up close and personal experiences with this magnificent spectacle of nature.

 

The Argentine side of the falls is filled with a myriad of paths and stairways which allow you to have an experience from many different perspectives. You will have the chance to meet “The Devil’s throat”: the largest of the falls and for many the most spellbinding. To get to the “Devil’s throat” you take the ecological train and then walk out along boardwalks.

 

After walking and taking pictures of animals and plants, you will have some free time to eat lunch in this amazing environment. This exciting, 6-7 hour-long excursion is highly recommended in order to experience the true power of Iguazú Falls.

Would you love to have a “Great Adventure”? The Great Adventure (gran aventura) is an optional tour you can add on this day. You will take an open air jeep through the rainforest and then a zodiac open air boat ride up the river to the base of the falls (there is a 100% chance that you will get soaking wet on this boat trip, so be sure to take some extra clothes!).

Day 7 – Iguazú Falls tours: Brazilian side / Travel back to Buenos Aires

 

After breakfast, enjoy a 3-4  hour long excursion to the Brazilian side of the Iguazú Falls. Don´t forget your passport!

 

While Argentina has 80% of the falls on its side, Brazil has the best panoramic view. On the Argentinian side you will have the sensation of being right inside the falls, but only by visiting the Brazilian side you will fully appreciate the immensity of Iguazú Falls. Take your time to enjoy it and feel it, to stroll the different walkways and feel the spray of water in your face.

 

Take the boardwalk over the Salto Santa María, it feels like walking on the water. Get closer to the “Devil’s Throat” and feel the power of water! We are sure this is a day you will never forget. At the appropriate time in the afternoon you will have a transfer to the airport for your flight to Buenos Aires.

Day 8 – Last day in the city! Enjoy Buenos Aires

 

Welcome back to the city of porteños (inhabitants of the port city of Buenos Aires). How you would like to spend your last day of vacation? Here are some ideas: you can explore the cobblestone, tree-lined streets of Palermo Soho in search of one-of-a-kind Porteño fashion store or discover the graffiti circuit. Or you may stop by one of our historic cafés (named “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 have the chance to visit one of the city markets, only open on  weekends. At the appropriate time you will be transferred to the international airport for your flight back home, ¡buen viaje!

Say Hueque offered packages that accommodated our timing, interests, and budget.

Say Hueque offered packages that accommodated our timing, interests, and budget.

Service at the Dazzler was excellent; they were very responsive to any requests, and even held luggage while we were in Calafate and Iguazu for four days. Koi Aiken’s staff went out of their way to be helpful, and gave good local advice and helped to arrange meals and side activities; very personable, but less polished/professional than Dazzler. Jasy offered the lowest level of service, though was certainly the most unique! The staff there was minimal, and did not communicate much with us. The room was spacious, but oddly laid out, with three beds in the main room, and a double bed in the loft upstairs. It worked out fine, but was odd.

All of the excursions were enjoyable and unique. I really enjoyed the El Tigre Delta trip, as that area is so vibrant; it was great to see people using the river in so many ways. The only sour note is that the Fruit Market was hyped a lot, but we were only able to see a small section of it. Of course the natural scenery at Calafate and Iguazu is amazing; it was great to be able to walk and see the glaciers and the falls

We had a lovely holiday! A big thank you to Say Hueque and all our wonderful guides!

Hi Marcela,

I'll put a review on trip advisor at the weekend to say what a lovely holiday we had and a big thank you to Say Hueque and all our wonderful guides, yourself included.

We first learned about Say Hueque by Google search. We liked the tour options, flexibility to change areas visited and hotel type, good description of day trips/ excursions available, easy to use web site and prompt response to any queries.

For me Iguazu was the highlight of travelling with you, for my husband El Calafate plus all our wonderful guides.

Our favorite hotel was our hotel in Bariloche - Amazing. The most beautiful room at the top of the hotel with stunning views. Lovely staff and a really cosy bar area. The free arrival drink was lovely. We also loved Clasico in Buenos Aires. Lovely bedroom and breakfast room and great breakfast. Probably Patagonia Rebelde. We loved to old style. Really comfortable and cosy. Lovely staff. Least favourite was Jasy in Iguazo- Poor quality.

My favorite excursion was the Argentinian side of Iguazu falls. For my husband Perito Moreno glacier. Both for the same reason that they were stunningly breathtaking. Wished we had done the ice trekking. Our regret was we didn't book this and didn't realize what it was/ how amazing it would be, until we arrived. We also really enjoyed our boat trip and hike in bariloche - the boat owner was fantastic. A lovely trip.

All our guides were great. Our first guide in Buenos Aires (Marcela) was lovely, really relaxed and it was more like having a friend with you than a guide but with all the knowledge. Margarita in Iguazu was amazing. Again so lovely and so friendly and really cared we had a great time. Our guide on the group tour for Perito was also fantastic - very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. We could not fault any of our guides.

Only place we had an issue with drivers was Bariloche so the local tour company could improve their drivers (first trip he was 30 minutes late and we were his first pick up) and the second day the other driver was 20 minutes late for the airport pick up. Perhaps a rough guide of excursion prices under each excursion description would be useful to help to decide which to do on free days.

Thanks again for a wonderful holiday
Helen and Ben

I recently completed a holiday in Argentina that was organized by Say Hueque, (giving this company a rating of 5 stars is an injustice they deserve 7 stars)

I recently completed a holiday in Argentina that was organized by Say Hueque, (giving this company a rating of 5 stars is an injustice they deserve 7 stars) in my world people do not care about how much you know, they only want to know how much you care, I travel the world 3 times a year and have never experienced a more caring Tour Company, than SAY HUEQUE. We had arranged for tours to Iguazu Falls and El Calfate with them, not only were they way cheaper than most other companies with the same offering, but very very true to label with their offerings, our tour coordinator Lujan provided all the necessary arrangements, ( Flights, tour guides on arrival and hotel bookings etc) she was absolutely terrific, a true professional that displayed much pride in her job, from the minute we arrived in Buenos Aires ( mind you our flight was 4 hours late) her representative Marcela ( another fantastic and caring person) was there at the airport to greet us, and stayed with us to check us into our hotel, specific instructions and arranged pick up and departure times were always spot on, which left us very comfortable between trips to and from the airport knowing that we were being looked after with a gold five star service at all times.
If you are looking at a holiday anywhere in South America, especially Argentina, more so if you cannot speak Spanish, then I strongly recommend you give this company an opportunity to offer their services to you, from the moment I made my first email enquiry, Lujan would always reply back to me within the next 24- 36 hours at all times.
I have already recommended Say Hueque ( and also told them to ask for Lujan especially, as she is nothing short of fantastic at her job) to some of my friends that are planning trips to South America next year.
