Argentina Family Holidays

Argentina is full of variety, and as such is a great family destination. From the architecture and the steak houses of Buenos Aires, to the vineyards producing some of the world’s best wine, and on to the dramatic and desolate National Parks of Patagonia, Argentina is a perfect holiday destination for an older family who will enjoy exploring the vineyards and enjoying the late night restaurant scene.

What are the highlights of an Argentina family tour?

  • Buenos Aires -  A trip to Argentina would not be complete without visiting a late night tango show, a walk around the colourful Italian neighbourhood of La Boca and a visit to the historically significant sites like the Casa Rosada or the Colon Theatre, in this, The 'Paris of the South'.
  • Wine - A big part of Argentinian culture, most trips to Argentina include visiting a winery, or two, or three.
  • Iguazu Falls -  the colossal network of waterfalls on the border with Brazil is a beautiful rainforest location with toucans and majestic views.
  • Dramatic scenery - From the vast, open steppes of Patagonia in the south, the flooded Ibera Wetlands in the north east to the Andean mountains in the north west, Argentina is truly stunning.
  • Food - Empanadas, asados (BBQ), dulve de leche, alfarores... Wherever you travel in Argentina, the food is scrumptious! 

  • What are the best family hotels in Argentina?

    There are lots of really great hotels here that will make your family feel very welcome.  In Buenos Aires you might opt for the classical and prestigious Alvear Palace, with its elegant rooftop pool and spa with sweeping views over the city. On the outskirts of the city, you might choose to spend a couple of opulent days at the converted hacienda  Estancia La Bamba. Eolo Lodge in Patagonia is first class service with super comfortable rooms. For a multi award winning and tremendous wine experience then you will find nowhere better than Cavas Wine Lodge in Mendoza.  

    The Best Argentinian Family Hotels

    Is Argentina good for younger children?

    A large part of Argentinian culture focuses on wine and food - the very young tend to miss out on that a little. However, a lot of the vineyards cater superbly well to families, and offer alternative experiences so that everyone can get involved and enjoy. Argentina also has a huge array of opportunities for fun outdoor activities, such as horseriding, visiting penguin colonies or riding in motor boats up to huge waterfalls, all of which provide great family fun. Speak to one of our experts for further information.

    How much does an Argentinian family tour cost?

    This is a really tricky question as there are no fixed prices! As a guide, a two week holiday in Argentina, staying at good quality boutique properties, with all your transfers, excursions and experiences would cost from $4,725/£3,500 per person excluding international flights.

    How does that sound?

    If that all sounds of interest and you would like to speak to someone that loves and knows Argentina intimately, for further information without obligation, then please do get in touch whether via email, telephone or by visiting us in our London offices. We look forward to hearing from you.
