Signature Uruguay: Land of vintage charm

14 days from £4,021pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip

 

Private Journey

 
Amiable little Uruguay, wedged between its giant neighbours Brazil and Argentina, is a fine place to unwind in both rural and coastal settings, enjoy good food and wine and the freedom to self-drive between some very inviting places to stay. Seasoned visitors to South America particularly appreciate the relaxing and authentic experiences Uruguay can offer.

On this diverse holiday we give you a few days in Argentina’s grand capital, Buenos Aires, one of Latin America’s highlights in itself, before taking you on the short sailing over the River Plate to Uruguay.  This is a Latin country which has a history of social strife but is now politically stable and the people particularly cultured and friendly. Never cutting edge contemporary neither is it pretentious: style and pace of life have a vintage appeal; mid-20th century cars line the streets, fashions are homely and parts of Montevideo are an art-deco time warp; but there’s an increasingly imaginative range of upmarket places to stay. It’s easy to get around and there is a surprisingly wide range of things to do.

What our experts say

Vintage style oozes from this holiday; if you’re into your classic cars, stunning architecture and experiencing gastronomy like a local, this holiday is for you. Uruguay is often overlooked as a place to visit, so what we’ve done with this itinerary is pack it full of unique experiences to really show off this country’s personality. From a rustic wine tour, sipping wine akin to the famous Malbec grape, taking a tour of Montevideo in a classic 1929 Chevrolet convertible, to arriving to one of the wildest peninsula’s in South America on horseback, as this is one of the only ways you can reach it, you’ll discover the charmingly wild nature of this landlocked gem on this two-week holiday.
