BUENOS AIRES & MENDOZA WINE
You’ll land in Buenos Aires—the Paris of Latin America. After soaking up the atmosphere, attend a private tango demonstration performed by some of the city’s finest exponents of this passionate dance before receiving a few pointers yourself.
Thanks to Pelorus’ unique local contacts, you’ll be granted exclusive access to a private Estancia. Here you’ll receive an immersion in the sport of polo from some of the sport’s local legends and learn about its place in Argentine culture.
It’s time to travel west to the world-famous wine region and handsome colonial city of Mendoza. With a private guide and sommelier leading the way, undertake a wine tour by mountain bike, sampling some of the finest South American vintages while taking in the Andean panoramas. As night falls, seek out the warmth and sustenance of celebrity chef Francis Mallmann’s cooking fire.
Rising with the dawn, your sensory memory still lingering on Mallmann’s delicious open fire cuisine, you’ll commence a two-day exodus across the mountains and into Patagonia. After a day’s honing your climbing ability, you’ll experience the stunning landscape in different ways as you hike, mountain bike, kayak, and raft until you finally reach your destination—luxury glamping on a serene riverbank.
Here, far from the energy of Buenos Aires, you’ll spend a couple of days relaxing at this retreat in nature, exerting yourself only so far as to fly fishing or explore the area by foot, before sitting and listening to the sounds of the river.
Restored, it’s on to the grand finale of your adventure—tracking Argentina’s largest land predator, the puma. Attaching yourself to a team of naturalists, you’ll scour the wilderness for this elusive, wide-ranging big cat, trying not to become too distracted by the other remarkable wildlife you encounter along the way.
