Day 1 : Wednesday / Buenos Aires City Tour
Location: Casa Rosada, Buenos Aires, Nueve De Julio Partido
Accommodation Name: Waldorf

Arrival at Ezeiza International Airport. Reception by your guide and transfer to the hotel. Baggage delivery.

Departure for a city tour in Buenos Aires.

First of all, its main avenues: 9 de Julio Avenue, one of the widest in the world; Corrientes Avenue with its numerous theatres, cinemas, bookshops and restaurants; and the Mayo Avenue, an important thoroughfare whose Spanish, and particularly Galician, influence is noted as much for the architectural design of its buildings as for the presence of Galician shops and centers.

On the 9 de Julio Avenue there is the Obelisk with its 65 meters of height, the epicenter of a star of important avenues, and also the Colon Theater: one of the jewels of Argentine architecture.

You can also see the Mayo Square, where the Casa Rosada, the current Government Palace, is located.

Then discover La Boca. It owes its name to its location, at the mouth of the Rio de la Plata where the Riachuelo flows. It was the historic port of Buenos Aires before it was moved further north of the city for technical reasons (shallow water, sandbanks...). The area was a refuge for immigrants, especially Italians, between 1880 and 1930. The popularity of the neighborhood is due to the "Caminito" street, where there are piles of small humble houses, made of colored sheet metal. It was the Argentine painter Quinquela Martin, a native of the neighborhood, who created the first mismatched paintings of the small street.

Lunch in a local restaurant.

Walk in The Cemetery of La Recoleta, next to the beautiful church of Nuestra Señora del Pilar. Declared a national historic monument for its grandiose mausoleums, celebrities such as Evita Peron rest here. Plaza Francia, opposite the cemetery, is also known for its bars and restaurants frequented by the Porteos (inhabitants of Buenos Aires) after a day of work.

Return to the hotel.

Dinner not included

Overnight at WALDORF *** or similar hotel (standard room)

Day 2 : Thursday / Buenos Aires Flight To Ushuaia – City Tour
Location: Canal De Beagle, Provinz Tierra Del Fuego, Ushuaia, Buenos Aires
Accommodation Name: Hotel Altos Ushuaia

Breakfast at the hotel.

Transfer to J.Newbery National Airport, flight to Ushuaia (not included).

Arrival in Ushuaia and welcome by the guide.

Ushuaia, capital of Tierra del Fuego, is surrounded by numerous snow-capped mountains and peaks reaching 1500 m above sea level, on the banks of the Beagle Channel. Ushuaia is the southernmost city on the planet and the gateway to the National Park of Tierra del Fuego.

From the end of the 19th century until the 1940s, Ushuaia was the city where political prisoners and those of common rights were sent. In the 1950s, the city became an important Argentine naval base.

Lunch in a local restaurant

Visit to the city of Ushuaia which, in the Yámana language, means "Bahía que penetra hacia el poniente" (bay that penetrates the sunset), capital of the Province of Tierra del Fuego and the South Atlantic Islands. Ushuaia is located at the end of one of the tips of the island, facing the Beagle Channel and on the slopes of the Martial mountain range.

The city and its surroundings offer landscapes whose color variations depending on the season leave indelible visual memories. Small city of around 70,000 inhabitants, it has only one main avenue, San Martín, which is also the commercial center where the city's day and night life is concentrated. Here you will find shops and restaurants offering the most representative dishes of the region: grilled mutton, spider crab and hake among others.

You will start at Maipú Avenue, and you will go to the Luis Pedro Fique footbridge. This narrow passage leads to the La Misión district, a site chosen by the first white men who settled in the region. You will also know the Brown and Sikuer neighborhoods. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to see old houses belonging to former important families. You will continue to the hotel zone on the winding path of the Le Martial glacier, which will allow you to gain height and enjoy a magnificent view.

Visit to the Maritime Museum and the prison.

Free time to enjoy the city on your own.

Accommodation Name: Hotel Altos Ushuaia

Breakfast at the hotel.

Departure for a navigation across the Beagle Channel, a natural passage that connects the Pacific to the Atlantic, 150 km from the famous Cape Horn. The show is superb to appreciate first the "Ile aux Oiseaux" for its cormorants and imperial ducks, then the Sea Lions Island for the hundreds of red-maned sea lions. Pass the Eclaireurs lighthouse, built by the French, where the "Monte Cervantes" was wrecked in 1930.

Lunch in a local restaurant

Depart for an excursion to the National Park of Tierra del Fuego. Placed at 15 km of Ushuaia, it is the only national park in the country that has maritime coasts (Beagle Channel). Its forest includes high and low deciduous beech and evergreen beech trees, its river, lakes and peat-bogs frame beautiful views to the Beagle channel. Footpath of different lengths allow you to enjoy nature at full.

National Park of Tierra del Fuego, created in 1960. It is the southernmost protected natural area in the world. Located 18 km from Ushuaia and with an area of 63,000 hectares, it is bordered to the west by Mount Olivia, to the north by the Beauvoir range and to the south by the cliffs of the Beagle Channel.

From the port, across Maipú Avenue towards the south-west, you travel through the city until you reach the foot of Susana Mountain, witness to the work of the inmates of the old penitentiary, where the railway station from the back of the World is located. We then continue along the Pipo river valley until the detour to approach the bay of Ensenada, where we can appreciate the Redonda and Estorbo islands and, on the other side of the Beagle Channel, the chain of Montes Nevados of the Sampaio (Chile).

Breakfast at the hotel.

Departure to Perito Moreno, clasified by UNESCO - The Perito Moreno glacier moves towards the front of the Magallanes Peninsula producing its break. When the glacier reaches the Peninsula, it forms a natural dam of ice which stops the flow of the water from the Rico arm to the Iceberg barrier. The water level goes up thus pressing and corroding the ice mass until it produces small leaks and the falling of pieces of ice. These increase creating a tunnel trough which water flows toward Argentino Lake.

Finally, the tunnel falls in a wonderful spectacle separating the Perito Moreno Glacier from the Magallanes Peninsula. Then the slow processs starts all over again. Arrival to the site and observation of the most impressive glacier, from the footbridges.

Lunch in a local restaurant overlooking the splendid glacier.

    Today Voyages does not sell flights directly. None of our tours come with flights included. Why?

Unforgettable tour in the US National Parks

04-May-2022

I booked a guided tour in the National Parks through Today Voyages and couldn't have been happier! Our guide was great, he knew the destination very well and gave us great advice for the best hikes and view points. The itinerary was well-packed and we were amazed at the scenery of the South West. We would definitely consider booking another tour next year.

Helengeli island is stunning

12-Apr-2023

Wow, Helengeli island is stunning. The resort is clean, the staff are so attentive, the grounds are pristine, and the food is 5*. Spending a week at this resort was simply paradise, white sand, crystal blue ocean, what more could you want! As I wasn't able to tailor-make my holiday, the Today Voyages team helped me find the tour that best matched my expectations, and they definitely didn't disappoint!!!

Top Experience!

03-Feb-2023

The Las Vegas and the National Parks Hiking Tour is a deal not to be missed. What a phenomenal trip! We were 14 people in our minibus and it was great to connect to all of them. So many stories to share. The cool thing about this tour is that it attracts hikers of all kinds: laid back hikers as well as more experienced ones could find beauty in every single destination this tour took us to. I will for sure join another tour soon. Thank you guys, also, for the assistance provided throughout the trip. Loved it!

Unforgettable 8-day trip to Kenya

01-Mar-2023

I just came back from an unforgettable 8-day trip to Kenya. A mix of relaxation and adventure. I had never traveled with a group before and, honestly, I was a little skeptical at the beginning. Pauline at Today Voyages convinced me that this was the right tour and the right destination for me. And the truth is... she was right. Tsavo and Watamu are such awesome destinations, our guide was impeccable and it was a small group: a family of 4, a young couple, and us. We became friends. Highly recommended!
