TRIP REVIEW OF IRINA MINDEL AND MITCHELL OLSHANSKY

"I must say this trip was an absolute amazing experience! Our host was Fred, who was so helpful in every aspect of this trip.

Our trip included the following destinations in Argentina: Iguazu Falls, Bariloche, El Calafate, and Ushuaia. Fred arranged all of our domestic flights, hotels, transportation from and to the hotel and airport, and all the tours that we were interested in.

Fred and the Exploration Journey’s team made our vacation completely worry and hassle free. Any questions or concerns were communicated to Fred via e-mail and were promptly acknowledged and taken care of. The travel booklet provided was also a very helpful reference throughout the trip. All of the tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.

The hotels booked for us were wonderful and offered delicious breakfast options. Most the hotels were walking distance from the city center or a hotel shuttle service was provided to and from the city. Some of our tours included view of the Iguazu Falls which was absolutely breathtaking! The glacier hike in El Calafate was an experience everyone should try at least once; the views and the hike were incredible! In Bariloche the views of the Andes Mountains and the lakes was unbelievable! And finally in Ushuaia, this was where we could see the Andes Mountains the closest as the city is built around them. I could look at the Andes all day and be amazed with its magnificence!

I highly recommend coming and experiencing the beauty and culture of Argentina through Exploration Journeys!  I guarantee it will be the experience of a lifetime!! It was for us!"

IRINA & MITCHELL'S BOOKED TRIP ITINERARY

Iguazu Falls

DAY 1: YOU ARRIVE IN IGUAZU

(staying for 3 nights, with 2 tours included)

Flight arrival in Iguazu.

Depending on your flight arrival time, you can relax at your hotel, enjoy your own explorations, or ask our guide about suggested activities for your free time.

DAY 2: IGUAZU

Witness the Unique Power & Might of the Iguazu Falls from the Argentine Side (private tour)

“You might have seen the photos. Even read about it. You might have visited other great waterfalls before. But you probably still have no idea what to expect when you come face to face with the almighty Iguazu Falls,” stated CNN in their article “Iguazu Falls: Why this natural wonder should be on everyone’s bucket list". To put that into perspective, Iguazu Falls is nearly twice as tall as Niagara Falls and nearly three times as wide. The late U.S. First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, was reportedly so impressed by the sight of Iguazu Falls that she exclaimed “Poor Niagara!”

In 1984, Iguazu Falls became a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and in 2011, it was selected as one of the 7 winners of the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” worldwide competition in which more than 100 million votes were cast.

Their size and scale are unlike any other waterfall on Earth. Made up of a system of 275 waterfalls, they have a staggering water flow of up to almost 3.5 million gallons (13 million liters) per second – enough to fill five Olympic swimming pools!

Unlike Niagara Falls, which is surrounded by developments such as casinos, a revolving restaurant, and coffee shops, Iguazu Falls are located within one of the few remaining inland rainforests in South America, the Atlantic rainforest, which is a haven for more than 2,000 plant species, about 400 birds species, and 80 types of mammals!

This is a full-day private tour.

A Speedboat Adventure Up-Close the Iguazu Falls

Get ready for a thrilling speedboat adventure, enjoying a unique, up-close perspective of the majestic Iguazu Falls and experience a different viewpoint of the falls from what you’ll see from the panoramic boardwalks. Our speedboat will zip the waters of the Iguazu River and approach the falls getting thoroughly splashed by their mist as you hear their loud roar!

This ride provides a unique and extremely close-up view of the San Martin and Three Musketeers falls with the opportunity to take outstanding close-up photos. The high point of this experience will be without a doubt, being showered under the mist of the San Martin Falls; the second strongest falls in the Iguazu system. Now it’s time to hop on board and begin our waterfall adventure!

This is a 12-minute group tour and is done on the same day you do the Argentinean side of the falls tour. This tour has an age restriction (click on tour name above for details).

DAY 3: IGUAZU

Free day to relax and enjoy your own explorations.

DAY 4: LAST DAY IN IGUAZU

Transfer in group vehicle to Iguazu airport.

You will take a flight to Buenos Aires and from there you will take another flight to Bariloche.

Depending on your flight arrival time, you can relax at your hotel, enjoy your own explorations, or ask our guide about suggested activities for your free time.

DAY 5: BARILOCHE

Panoramic Images of Gorgeous Bariloche

Get ready to be ‘wowed’ by the picturesque setting of the mountain town of Bariloche. The inspiring panoramic sights of this charming southern region await you, as you head out on an introductory tour of its gorgeous scenery. Experience breathtaking views of the area’s largest lake, Nahuel Huapi, set against the backdrop of the majestic, snow-capped Andes Mountains. You’ll also enjoy one of the world’s 10 most beautiful panoramic views, as rated by National Geographic. With so many awesome panoramic viewpoints, you’ll have plenty of great opportunities to capture the perfect nature photos while marveling at the beautiful sights all around you.

This is a half-day group tour.

DAY 6: BARILOCHE

Navigating the Nahuel Huapi Lake & Exploring the Victoria Island and the Myrtle Forest

Prepare to navigate the beautiful blue waters of the Nahuel Huapi Lake, the largest in Argentina’s Lake District, set against the backdrop of the snow-capped Andes mountain range. We’ll enjoy our exclusive seating in the boat’s upper deck cabin. From here we’ll experience superior panoramic views and a much more exclusive setting, since there are only 50 seats in this cabin (compared to the over-200-people capacity of the regular cabin).

Known for its cold glacial waters and for being the habitat of kelp gulls and blue-eyed cormorants (which are typically only found near oceans), the Nahuel Huapi Lake provides plenty of natural beauty and beckons with the serenity of its waters.

We’ll visit the largest island on the Nahuel Huapi Lake: Victoria Island, home to a wide array of flora and fauna; also offering plenty of history, including ancient cave paintings. Another highlight of this navigation includes a visit to a unique forest of myrtle trees at Arrayanes National Park. These intriguing, cinnamon-hued trees are known for their attractive, smooth and tan bark, peppered with white spots; and giving the forest a captivating mystique. In fact, it’s widely fabled that Walt Disney, during his visit to Argentina, was inspired by this forest to create his animated classic “Bambi.”

This splendid ice giant showcases its mighty glory in the Patagonian Glaciers National Park, which has been declared Mankind’s Natural Heritage site by UNESCO. The park’s vast size not only gives it the distinction of being the largest ice mantle in the world after Antarctica, but also that of being the third largest fresh water reserve on the planet.

Now, picture yourself strapping on your ice spikes, as you begin trekking along this ice giant on a full-day discovery journey along one of the few glaciers in the world, which is actually growing and advancing.
