Full-day visit to a traditional estancia near Buenos Aires

Today, we’ll pick you up at your hotel to begin a 9-hour visit to this time-honored ranch. Learn about the gaucho culture and traditions, strolling around the beautiful old streets, museums, and ancient pulperías (grocery stores) in San Antonio de Areco before heading to El Ombú.

Argentina is famous worldwide for its fútbol players, but also for the vastness of its green-tinted fields best known as ‘La Pampa’. That endless land at the edge of the horizon is still home to the descendants of the first gauchos (Argentine cowboys), who still care for and work the land as their ancestors taught them to.

There are still some estancias (ranches) that preserve the gaucho traditions and are located in picturesque towns within Buenos Aires’ province. One of the most alluring estancias is El Ombú de Areco, a colonial-style working ranch built in 1880 that is located in the town of San Antonio de Areco, where gaucho traditions are still palpable all around.

Once you’re in the estancia, enjoy a typical asado (barbecue) before either a horseback ride in nature or a relaxing bike ride. For those who like to take things slow while on vacation, there is a peaceful swimming pool (only available in summer) and many sunny relaxation areas where you can take a siesta (an afternoon nap). At the end of the day, we’ll take you back to your hotel in Buenos Aires.

After breakfast, your driver will pick you up from your hotel in Buenos Aires and drive you to the airport to take your flight to El Calafate and begin your family Patagonian adventure. Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport and take a private transfer to your hotel.

 

Visit a Patagonian estancia

El Calafate is a starting point for adventure travelers who desire to unearth the natural wonders of Patagonia, like Perito Moreno Glacier. But is El Calafate only about the glaciers? Well, yes and no… though glaciers are the main attraction, you will also have plenty to discover about Argentina’s rural, indigenous culture.

Start your family adventure trip to Patagonia with a visit to a traditional Patagonian ranch. Depart from your hotel in a minivan headed toward Glacier National Park. Leave El Calafate behind and travel for 1hr 30mins with the snow-capped Cerro Frías as your backdrop. Once inside the National Park, make your way to Nibepo Aike Ranch, the only ranch in the area that has maintained the traditions of sheep shearing and Hereford cattle breeding as its primary focus.

Enjoy an inviting hot drink and a delicious snack in the classic quincho (rustic dining room)! Walk the coast of Lago Argentino, watch how a real gaucho (the Argentine cowboy) works the shearing shed, and view a unique demonstration of gaucho horsemanship. Depending on the day’s activities, you might help milk the cows, herd sheep, or learn the history behind the founders of the estancia. At the end of the day, return to the quincho, where a mouth-watering grilled lamb awaits, sizzling over the traditional Patagonian fire pit. Take the same road and transportation to return to El Calafate.

Sail Mayo Channel and disembark at Toro Bay to hike through the Patagonian forest; your specialized guide will tell you about the vegetation of this area (very different from other varieties inside the park) and show you the ancient cherry tree and its 10-foot-diameter trunk. Tell your kids that they can call it El Abuelo (grandpa), as locals have nicknamed it, and prepare yourselves to discover a waterfall!

Set sail again towards Cerro Negro (Black Hill), where you’ll do a soft, half-mile hike to the base of the hill to admire the massive Black Glacier.

Enjoy your free time in this place that not many travelers have seen, before departing for our third stop, the famous Perito Moreno Glacier.

Walk around, accompanied by your guide, and enjoy the views of the massive Argentine waterfalls until you reach Floriano Waterfall, the natural highlight of this side, and the Salto Santa María, where it feels like you’re walking on the water.

Although you’ll be looking into Argentina, your feet will be on the ground in Brazil! Where does Argentina start and Brazil end?

After 1hr 30mins of enjoying a full jungle exploration, you’ll return to the port and we’ll take you back to your hotel in Puerto Iguazú (Argentina).

Argentine dinner experience

At night, enjoy a 4-hour dining experience where you’ll learn all about our traditional dishes in a cozy (and hidden!) restaurant in downtown Puerto Iguazú. Make your way to the closed-door restaurant where our bilingual guide will be waiting to greet you.

First, you’ll pass through a hidden winery, and then approach a large table where your materials will be waiting for you to start your cooking class and dinner. Get all dressed up in your professional chef outfit and start preparing your first Argentine cocktail with delicious Malbec wine (and its non-alcoholic version); some serious shaking is involved here, which will be a blast for your kids!

After competitions and videos with your finished beverages, it’s time to taste some appetizers and get ready for the empanada contest. Learn how to properly fill the empanada and practice your skills with the “repulgue” (a special way to close and seal the empanada).

Then, it will be time to order your steak! Learn how to ask for your desired cooking point in Spanish. Led by passionate hosts, learn about the classic social customs used by Argentines to enjoy plenty of funny moments at the dinner table.
