Squeezed between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Chile is a beautiful strip of coastal land that combines one of the world’s driest deserts with lush forests, vast glaciers and magnificent fjords. Rich European influences have blended with Chilean culture and ancestry to make Chile one of the most highly developed countries in South America. Furthermore, in recent years, Chile has become a world-renowned producer of fine wines. Its neighbour Argentina is one of the youngest and most untouched countries in the world. Three major landscapes form the country: the Andes to the west, the flatlands in the north and west, and the wide plains of Patagonia in the south. It also has three distinct climatic zones - tropic in the north, moderate in the centre and polar in the extreme south. Located in a desert-like setting, the wine-growing area of Mendoza is protected by the Andes and has the ideal soil that is irrigated by glacial waters. This extraordinary tour showcases the beauty of the  incredible landscape and its outstanding bounty. We will enjoy a host of special dinners and wineries, an annual wine harvest festival, the spectacular crossing of the Andes mountains and a visit to one of nature’s most spectacular sights - Iguassu Falls. Our tour will conclude in the sophisticated Argentine capital, Buenos Aires, where we will experience life in the country and the passion of the  tango.
