Upon arrival, you will be transferred to the hotel and enjoy a typical Argentine dinner. If you would like to take an optional tour of Iguazu Falls on arrival, please let your travel consultant know. One of the planet’s most awe-inspiring sights, the Iguazú Falls are simply astounding. A visit is a jaw-dropping, visceral experience, and the power and noise of the cascades – a chain of hundreds of waterfalls nearly 3km in extension – live forever in the memory. An added benefit is the setting: the falls lie split between Brazil and Argentina in a large expanse of national park, much of its rainforest teeming with unique flora and fauna.
Iguazu, the Argentinean Falls
Your adventure continues this morning at Iguazu Falls. A rail car takes you to the top of the Falls on the Upper Circuit, and you will walk to the Lower Circuit where the power of nature surrounds you.

Fly to Buenos Aires
This afternoon transfer to the airport for your flight to Buenos Aires. Arrive in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires.
If only one word could be used to describe this vibrant and richly cosmopolitan city, it would be "mosaic." Stroll along these broad thoroughfares, like the Plaza de Mayo, where famed first lady Evita Perón led fervent crowds to petition for her husband’s release from prison, or visit Pirámide de Mayo, the oldest of the city’s many national monuments.
Overnight: Buenos Aires

The grounds here cover more than four city blocks, filled with tombs adorned by works of local and international sculptors, and more than 6400 mausoleums including the tomb of Eva "Evita" Peron, always heaped with flowers and letters from adoring fans.

With your guide, walk along the 1,300-foot (400-meter) walking path that takes you to a lookout point near the glacier. You’ll spend about two hours here; when you reach the viewpoint (about an hour’s walk), your guide will give you free time to take photos and admire the amazing view of the glacier and lake.
Perito Moreno is a growing glacier, creeping forward a little bit each day. If you’re lucky, you may witness the natural phenomenon of ice breaking off of the glacier walls and crashing into the water.
