Flavours of Chile and Argentina

15 days from £4699pp

Private Journey

Argentina and Chile both have a robust and tasty cuisine born of age-old recipes conceived in the countryside. You are probably familiar with a few of them: meaty empanadas, chunky soups, gratinated shellfish; tender sirloin steaks; especially agreeable when washed down with one of the ever-improving local wines.

On this mouth-watering holiday you have a taste of the variety of fresh savoury dishes in the two capital cities - of course more than worth a visit in their own right. Then we take you to the lesser-known northwest: a region of the deserts, oases, fertile plains and foothills on the eastern flank of the Andes. Here you will be introduced to stunning landscapes displaying nature in the raw, wind carved cliffs and blood-red canyons, the vestiges of the historical Andean indigenous communities. You will also be given many opportunities to sample the cuisine and wines. Cookery classes and demonstrations will immediately expand your repertoire in the kitchen at home.

You’ll be staying at intimate, characterful properties with a unique local ambience and small wineries, many with beautiful locations. Your private tour begins in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, considered to be Latin America’s most sophisticated and European city, with its wide boulevards, colonial architecture and café society. It ends on the other side of the Andes at Santiago, capital of Chile, also a developing destination for visitors.
