Itinerary

Days 1-2
Santiago

Santiago

Although Santiago covers a large area, the city centre is quite compact and easy to get around. Its centre is roughly triangular in shape and in its heart is the Plaza de Armas, the chief plaza and the cathedral. Panning out from here are wall-to-wall shops, restaurants and parks. For a more serene look at Chilean life, head out to the barrio Bella Vista, Santiago's 'Paris Quarter' or take a cable car up to Cerro San Cristobal. If the weather permits, you'll have impressive views over the city and the peaks of the Andes. You have a free day to continue exploring Santiago or perhaps take an optional trip to Valparaiso, by the Pacific coast.

Days 3-4
Mendoza

Mendoza

Travel across the Andes into Argentina, by local bus. On a clear day you may be able to spot Mt. Aconcagua, the highest mountain in America at 6,962 meters above sea level. Once in Mendoza spend the afternoon strolling around Mendoza's tree lined streets. Choose a cafe along Sarmiento pedestrian street and watch life pass by as you sip coffee. The city centre is beautifully landscaped and full of trees, squares and parks. On our free day here you will take an included winery tour. Mendoza is Argentina's most important grape growing region, producing 70% of the country's wine. At night head out to Aristides Villanueva Street which has lately become on the starting point of Mendoza's night life. Tonight why not try the most popular drink in town: Fernet with Coke, a bitter (very) alcoholic cocktail.

Days 5-6
Buenos Aires Estancia Stay

Buenos Aires Estancia Stay

Today we fly from Mendoza to Buenos Aires. Upon arrival we transfer to a minivan for a 2hr drive to our Estancia stay in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. During your time on the Estancia you can do as much or as little as you desire. Activities may also vary depending on the day. You could work with the cattle (including branding, vaccinating etc), participate in a cattle auction or visit the local town, visit a cheese factory, play volleyball, soccer etc. Alternatively you could laze by the pool and read or have a barbecue. All meals at the estancia are included.

Farmstay

Days 7-9
Depart Buenos Aires and return to the UK

Depart Buenos Aires and return to the UK

Today, transfer back to Buenos Aires, perhaps South America's ultimate cosmopolitan city. With Latin passion, European elegance and a distinctive style all of its own, this is a city that will steal your heart. The Portenos (the local residents) are justifiably proud of their city which is comprised of distinct neighbourhoods, each with its own style. The following day your leader will take you on an orientation walk, perhaps visiting San Telmo and its weekend antiques market and artists' displays, La Boca home to the world-class football team Boca Juniors, Recoleta or the Casa Rosada (Pink House) among other attractions. The trip finishes by midday after the orientation walk.
