 argentine odyssey

17  day escorted tour

10 - 26 march 2023

Here is an escorted tour you simply cannot miss! Next year from 10 – 26 March we are offering you ARGENTINE ODYSSEY in a vast country with great diversity in nature, adventure, cuisine and culture – Argentina, a pearl of South America! Everyone knows about Tango in Argentina, but did you know there is also an amazing jungle experience awaiting you there, in Iguazu National Park? Just 80 km from the world famous Iguazu Falls is a jungle lodge offering incredible activities – canoeing and walking in the rain forest, night walks, participating in an orchid rescue programme, learning about the local community and biodiversity of this area. And you will be spending 3 nights here and participating in all these activities on our tour! And yes, you will also spend time at Iguazu Falls, to marvel at this UNESCO World Heritage spectacle of Nature. Then on to a totally different environment – desert and high mountains in the northwest of the country. Beautiful scenery, wine tasting, local markets, interaction with indigenous families. And finally down south to the glaciers and icebergs! How much more diverse can it be than this? And we have chosen really special accommodation, with facilities which we feel will enhance your enjoyment. Your tour leader from Custom Touring will take care of luggage and handle all the tipping on your behalf. Your only responsibility is to join us at the start of the tour in Buenos Aires and be ready to have loads of care freefun!

Even though we are still 9 months out, we suggest you contact us soon to secure your place on this amazing adventure, as the tour is likely to fill up quickly due to numbers being limited.

We are keenly aware of there still being some uncertainty regarding flights and travel at this time, which is why we have relaxed our “norm” of deposits being required immediately to secure your place on tour and being non refundable. For this tour, we will take names of those wishing to participate, but deposits will be required on 10 Sep 2022, at which time they will be non refundable. Should anyone wish to pay a deposit immediately, it will be refundable until 10 Sep, after which it will become non refundable. We hold out the hope of everything travel related having settled down by then!
