Argentina Tours

Why visit? From dancing the famous Argentinian tango in one of Buenos Aires’ traditional milongas to wine tasting in Mendoza overlooking the Andes, or admiring the impressive Iguazu Falls, an Argentina tour can introduce you to the perfect mix of buzzing cities, cultural highlights and natural wonders. 
The most popular starting point for an Argentina tour is the country’s capital, Buenos Aires. Often referred to as ‘the Paris of South America’, Buenos Aires is a city in which you can linger. There are many fascinating neighbourhoods but some of our favourites include La Boca, a ‘barrio’ known for its European feel being home to some of the best art galleries and tango shows in town, or San Telmo with its restored mansions and antique stores.
From Buenos Aires, your Argentina tour could take you to Salta in the country’s north, where you can day trip along Route 40, visiting the Great Salt Flat or venture to Humahuaca to visit ancient ruins and stop at some of the indigenous communities along the way. 
For an active exploration of the country, there are many ways to explore the fascinating landscapes of Argentina, including crossing the Andes on a horseback or hiking along the sapphire-coloured lakes of Tierra del Fuego National Park in Patagonia, in the country’s south. 
How to get there? Access has never been easier for Australians with three top-ranked airlines (LATAM, Air New Zealand and Qantas) providing regularly scheduled services to Buenos Aires. Qantas and Air New Zealand provide the quickest and easiest route to Argentina with only one stop along the way – Auckland for Air New Zealand and Santiago for Qantas. With LATAM, travellers stop in two cities, Auckland and Santiago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Patagonia Glacier Trek An expectant boat load of walkers, ice trekkers and ice climbers were on their way to Viedma Glacier on a bright, warm, sunny day. Getting close to the glacier, the wind became much stronger, the waves bigger, and the captain decided (for good reasons) that the conditions were too difficult to continue. Sadly, the boat returned to the jetty. ...and you might think that this would result in a poor review. However the decision to turn around was made for safety reasons, and completely understandable. Travellers were immediately told about either getting a refund or rebooking for another trip. I chose the refund, and the funds were in my bank account just a few days after I returned from Patagonia. And finally, a bit later that day the local organisers gave me information about a great walk which turned out to be one of the highlights of my entire trip to Patagonia. In all, a good outcome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wildlife Highlights V2 Generally a great trip - hotels with exception of one were perfect, tours and excursions were great (would be better if all the guides had spoken english). Communications re pickups could be better (we had a 7am flight and only got a call at 4.30 that morning to tell us when we were getting picked up). Argentina is a wonderful country and this trip certainly highlighted its best features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a brilliant time. The itinerary went really well although there appears to have been a lack of communication between your Argentinian and Chilean offices as we were not met upon arrival in Punta Arenas as the bus company we travelled with was not as originally planned. This meant your driver was at the wrong bus terminal which meant we had to get a taxi to the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good trip The entire trip went smoothly. The only flaw was when we were leaving EZE for IGZ, we were sent to terminal A instead of C. Terminal A is for international flights, Terminal C is for domestic. Our flight was domestic. The driver did not know, neither did we. We have to walk and roll our luggage from A to C, quite a long way.

Great tour guides and transfer to G Adventures at Ushuaia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous night of fun, food and in Buenos Aires The Argentine Culinary Experience - the best experience in my 7 weeks in South America. Day 3 of my South America holiday and just beginning to feel at home in Buenos Aires it was time to increase my understanding of Argentina and what better way than a visit to the Argentine Culinary Experience. Well, it more than met my expectations - local traditions, history, preparation of mate, family traditions, food, wine and exuberant company. An unusual but delicious cocktail started the evening as other guests from Brazil and Venezuela plus a few locals arrived. It may have been a small group that night but it allowed us to converse easily and to enjoy all the jokes as we moved through traditional Argentina customs, food and food traditions, lots of banter in a medley of languages and in deference to my Australian English someone would quickly translate anything I missed. Making empanadas and the creative competition were a lot of fun and eating the empanadas as they came out of the oven satisfied my hunger until the best-ever steak, mash and vegetables were dished up.. Wine was liberally supplied enjoyed. I learnt about Malbec, not a well known wine in Australia. Thank you to Alecto and the whole team including the party people for the most memorable night of my trip and for giving me an hilarious (with some sober moments) insight into Argentina. I highly recommend that you don't miss this experience and wish you well with the Bangkok opening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The icing on the cake My friend and Carol and I had been on a 31 night cruise from San Diego to Buenos Aires and we wanted to see more of Argentina and also visit Rio. On searching for a suitable tour I found Chimu Adventures. We shortened the suggested tour by one day as it meant an overnight in Santiago en route back to Sydney to fit in with international flights. All transfers were by private transport which worked really well when we were travelling at unusual hours. 2 days in Buenos Aires was wonderful - we stayed at the Dazzler Tower Recoletta as we wanted to be near the cemetery where Evita Peron is buried, and this turned out to be a really good location. It's a nice inexpensive hotel one block from the cemetery plus close to restaurants, a shopping mall and amazing Recoletta markets. There's a pool and the breakfast was very good. The excursions each day were fantastic - a city tour, a half day tour to Tigre north of BA and an evening tango show and dinner. Tigre is amazing - islands in the river delta where people have weekenders but some also live full time. We had a launch tour lasting about 2 hours exploring the canals. The tango show was brilliant and the dinner really good, so this was a good ending to our stay in Buenos Aires. We flew to Iguasu on day 3. The town of Puerto Iguasu is a typical country town - nothing really grand here and the town is sprawling. We stayed at the Jardin del Iguazu - initially looking a little daunting but perfectly adequate. It does have a nice courtyard and pool - and we loved watching the hummingbirds feed on nectar. Our first day at the falls was long but totally amazing - words can't explain. In the morning we caught the train to the start of the walkway across the river to Hells Throat - the spray from the falls could be seen more than a kilometre away. After lunch we did the lower falls walk, with some people in our group opting to do the boat ride. More than 6 times the amount of water was cascading over the falls when we were there and it looked like liquid chocolate due to the erosion from the rain. The day was really tiring as it was hot and humid so an evening beside the pool was welcome. Day 2 at Iguasu took us to the Brazilian side of the Falls crossing the bridge at the border taking us to the Brazilian entrance. To be able to see the falls from the Brazilian side is a must as you aren't able to see all of the falls from the Argentinian side. The view is stunning and if you wish you may also get soaking wet by going out onto two walkways.This is an option though! We had mid afternoon flight to Rio de Janeiro and a private transfer to our hotel the Copa Sul, just one block from Copacabana Beach and four blocks from Ipanema Beach, where we arrived early evening. We had a snack sitting on the beach taking in the atmosphere and pinching ourselves to realise where we were. The night beach markets are very good and have a wide range of good souvenirs, so well worth a visit. At 7am on day 6 we were met at the hotel by our guide for the day Kiko from Carioca Tropical Tours. There were only the two of us on the morning tour and it was wonderful. Kiko's knowledge was exceptional and he excelled at each place we visited. We'd asked to go to Escadaria Selaron the world famous tiled steps hidden away where they'd easily be missed by independent travellers. A trip to the top of Mt Sugarloaf, the interior of the amazing cathedral, Ipanema Beach and a visit to the statue of Tom Jobim who wrote "Girl from Ipanema" and lunch at a Brazilian churrascaria. One of the best food experiences I've ever had, however I need to learn to eat like a Brazilian! We didn't do the range of BBQ meat justice! After lunch we were joined by 8 more people and headed to Corcovado Mountain. The bus took us partway up the mountain then we transferred to a national parks shuttle bus for the trip to the upper car park. To reach the top you have the option of climbing the 200 plus steps or a combination of lift and escalator. The initial view of the rear of Christ the Redeemer statue is breathtaking but it all changes when you reach the top. It was very crowded when we arrived which was disappointing but it was still wonderful. The 360 degree view is simply breathtaking. Another from the Bucket List ticked off.... We spent the evening on Copacabana Beach, then back to the hotel to pack for a 7.30am flight to Santiago. Both the Buenos Aires and Rio Offices contacted us several times to ensure everything was running smoothly and they also checked all of our flights were on time. Our stay in Argentina and Brazil was wonderful thanks to the excellent planning of Chimu Adventures.

 Argentina's official language is Spanish, but Argentinian Spanish differs from Spanish spoken in other Latin American countries, mainly due to the Italian sounding intonations. Indigenous languages spoken today include Tehuelche, Guarani and Quechua. Many immigrant groups have continued to speak their own language and so you will also find many other languages in Argentina including Italian, German, English, French and even Welsh.

Do I need to be fit to go to Argentina?

The level of fitness needed will depend on the Argentina tour that you choose to take in terms of places to be visited and the types of activities to be included on your itinerary. Argentina offers great opportunities for outdoor activities set against spectacular backdrops. They range from hiking ad trekking to rock climbing, skiing, white water rafting, horse riding and ice climbing. The majority of the best treks are to be found in the National Parks where the trails range from easy to difficult. If you plan on summiting Aconcagua, South America’s highest peak at 6962m, then you will need to be fit and ensure that you acclimatise thoroughly.

Is it safe to travel in Argentina?

Most South American countries have now recognized that tourism plays an important part in their economies and governments have taken great steps to change South America’s poor security image. Violent crime is rare in Argentina and local police actively patrol the tourist areas. 
To minimise security risks we recommend the following: 


  • do not show any outward signs of wealth or wear expensive jewellery
  • keep your valuables in your hotel in safety deposit boxes
  • keep any valuables that you must carry with you hidden, as pickpockets can be present in crowded areas and around tourist areas
  • use only registered taxis with official identification
  • avoid going on your own to remote areas or the poorer barrios of Buenos Aires or where tourists would not be expected to go
  • always keep your day pack and camera close to you and never leave them unattended

Do I need a visa to travel to Argentina?

A pre-arranged visa is not required to enter Argentina for citizens of the following countries:


  • Australia
  • United Kingdom
  • The United States
  • Ireland
  • Canada
  • New Zealand
  • European Union
  • South Africa
For other nationalities please visit the website of the relevant consulate.
Please note that Canadian and USA citizens must pay a "reciprocity fee" to enter Argentina. This is not a visa, since a visa is not required for visitors from these countries. It is a fee based on the fees that Argentinean citizens pay for visas to these countries. The fee is subject to change but must be paid in advance online. For US citizens, the reciprocity fee allows multiple entries into Argentina for 10 years in accordance with US visa reciprocity. 
British and European Union passport holders are exempt from Reciprocity Fees.
* As of the 1st of July 2017 Australian citizens no longer require to pay a reciprocity fee to enter Argentina. 


How long do I need to travel to Argentina?

You could spend anything from a few days to several weeks or even months on your Argentina travels, depending on whether you plan to explore the entire country or just focus on one experience such as the Valdes Peninsula, an estancia stay or a Patagonian glacier trek. Chimu Adventures offers itineraries to suit every time frame.

How much should I budget for daily in Argentina ?

Our Argentina tours include breakfast daily and many other meals may also be included in your itinerary. As a rough guide for additional spending money based on having moderately-priced lunches and dinners and buying a few souvenirs at local markets, we suggest a budget of 25-35 USD per day per person. 

Do I need to get vaccinations for Argentina?

Although no specific vaccinations are required for Argentina travel and no proof of any vaccination is required to enter the country, we recommend that you visit your doctor or a traveller’s medical centre for current information specific to those places that you will be travelling through.
Yellow Fever is a risk in certain parts of Argentina and this vaccination is generally recommended if your Argentina tour includes the northern parts of the country bordering Brazil and Paraguay. Depending on your travel itinerary you may be required to produce proof of yellow fever vaccination when returning to Australia from parts of Argentina.
As a general guide we recommend the following:


  • Yellow Fever - Especially for northern parts of Argentina

  • Rabies
  • Tetanus
