Make the tour of a lifetime through Northern Argentina! Incl. Hotels with breakfast, transfers, rental cars, excursions and flights.

On this round trip, you'll venture to the beautiful north of Argentina, which boasts a diverse landscape with multi-coloured mountains such as the Quebrada de Humahuaca, snow-capped peaks, volcanoes, desert-like high plateaus and salt lakes, but also has a lot to offer culturally! Visit a spectacular tango show in Buenos Aires, the perfectly straight street "La Recta del Tin Tin", the unearthly "Quebrada de las Flechas" whose crust seems to be wrinkled like paper, the "painter's palette" (a series of mountains that look like they have been purposely painted) and go for a walk with llamas. If you choose the 17-night trip, you will also visit the Iguazú Falls, which are on the border with Brazil and at 60-82 metres, are twice as high as Niagara Falls in the USA. From the 6th day you can explore the region with the freedom of your own rental car and experience an unforgettable adventure in the midst of breathtaking nature. So, what are you waiting for? Going out into the desert has never been so great!
