Day 3: Buenos Aires – Puerto Iguazu
After breakfast at the hotel in Buenos Aires, you'll have free time until we pick you up for your transfer to the airport or bus station, depending what transport you've booked. Keep in mind that the flight or bus trip to Puerto Iguazu will be at your own expense.

Day 4: Iguazu Falls (Argentinian side)
Full of energy after a hearty breakfast at your hotel in Puerto Iguazu, we'll head to one of the most stunning natural sights in this area of the world: the Devil's Throat. This cliff forms part of the Iguazu Falls, a group of waterfalls measuring up to 269 feet (82 metres) in height, making them one of the largest waterfalls in the world.
You'll be captivated by the sight of Iguazu Falls from the Argentinian side! Once you've taken photos of the incredible natural cascades, we'll head back to hotels in Puerto Iguazu for around 4:30 pm to 5 pm.
Day 5: Iguazu Falls (Brazilian side)
The Iguazu Falls are so spectacular, you have to see them twice! After you've had breakfast at your hotel in Puerto Iguazu, we'll pick you up and set off across the border for a day on the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls, or the Foz do Iguaçu, as they're called in Brazil. Having spent the day admiring yet more breathtakingly beautiful views of the impressive waterfalls from the national park located here, we'll head back to Puerto Iguazu to drop you off at your hotel.
Day 6: Puerto Iguazu - Salta
Having enjoyed a relaxed breakfast at your hotel, we'll pick you up for the transfer to the airport or bus station in Puerto Iguazu, ready to leave this city behind for the journey to Salta (transport to Salta at your own expense). Arriving in the northern Argentinian city, you'll have the rest of the day free to explore the historic city at your own pace.
Day 7: Salta
Fuelled up after a delicious breakfast at your hotel, it'll be time to discover Salta! We'll meet in the 9 de Julio Plaza, where our three-hour guided tour of Salta will begin. Admire the colonial architecture of the Cabildo de Salta, these days a history museum, and the elegant façade of the Cathedral, whose beauty rivals only the San Francisco Church.
Continuing onwards, we'll visit the Cerro de San Bernardo, a hill from which we'll enjoy panoramic views over the city, before passing by the Catholic University campus on our way to the nearby picturesque town of San Lorenzo. Before returning to the hotel you'll have the opportunity to visit a local handicrafts market - ready to fill your suitcases with souvenirs?
