PARK HYATT PALACIO DUHAU
As you drive up to the grand French-style palace you may be concerned that the driver took a wrong turn, but this magnificent building is your home for the next 3 nights. Set in the Recoleta neighborhood, Buenos Aires' most sought after district, this Belle Epoque style hotel is a stunning example of the surrounding Parisian-esque architecture. Beloved for it's turn-of-the-century palaces and mansions, lovely plazas and parks, sidewalk cafes, and upscale art galleries, a stroll through Recoleta can make you feel as if you've turned up in the Paris of yesteryear. The beauty of Buenos Aires and her many neighborhoods is how distinct each new district feels. As your time in the city takes you to its most striking landmarks you'll feel the uniqueness as you go from the renovated, urban docklands, to an authentic Tango dance hall, and on to the twisting streets of the colonial neighborhoods.
Day three brings with it a cultural experience that is sure to stay with you for a long time to come. The picture of sprawling Argentine estancias run by the strong and steady Gauchos may seem to be from another time, but at Estancia La Bamba de Areco, you are treated to a day of this traditional life. When you arrive on the farm your time will be spent soaking up the country's heritage, savoring authentic asado and Argentine wines, and taking rides on horseback or relaxing in a horse drawn carriage.
Days 4, 5, 6
As Buenos Aires fades behind you the ice of Los Glaciares National Park looms ahead. Eolo Lodge, a 3,000 hectare estate, awaits you as your next basecamp. The lodge exudes warmth and comfort, the perfect welcome to this isolated corner of the world. It is here, at the nearby National Park, that you have the chance to don some crampons and take part in a trek over the top of the Perito Moreno Glacier. Throughout the walk you'll be sighting crevices, ice caves, and rivers hidden below the ice, all the while admiring new shades of blue you never knew existed! After the up close take on the glacier we'll make sure you can gather the scope of this mighty presence with a stop at the Glacier Catwalks, specifically designed for visitors to have the opportunity to view the glacier and absorb its enormity. The photo ops are a big plus too. For an entirely new perspective of the glaciers you'll also be treated to a glacier cruise through the ice floes and glacial canals, you'll enjoy lunch onboard, surrounded by all the majesty of the ice.
