Home to big skies, massive glaciers, endless asado feasts, and perhaps the world’s most sensual dance, Argentina doesn’t do anything by half measures. This adventure-filled journey lives up to that ethos, blending big-city excitement in Buenos Aires with bigger-than-real-life active thrills way down south in the wildlands of Tierra del Fuego, including glacier treks, penguin spotting, and much, much more.

After touching down and getting settled, the adventure begins in Buenos Aires with an engaging private tour of the Argentinian capital’s landmarks and neighborhoods (Plaza de Mayo, La Boca, and La Recoleta, to name just a few) and a journey underground to explore the recently unearthed passageways beneath trendy San Telmo. Next, we head south to Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia, where the real action begins. From the world’s southernmost city, you’ll slip into the Beagle Channel for a private cruise to see seals, penguins, cormorants, and other seabirds. You’ll want to fuel up on a hearty breakfast for the next day’s adventure: a full day of trekking and canoeing through the glorious confines of Tierra del Fuego National Park with a private guide. A short flight to the west brings you to El Calafate, gateway to Los Glaciares National Park where you’ll depart by catamaran from a remote estancia to witness the might Upsala Glacier up close. Later, explore the southern edge of the Perito Moreno Glacier on a guided hike to Los Glaciares’ peaceful giant before heading to rugged El Chaltén, Argentina’s unofficial trekking capital, for a pair of private full-day hikes, first along the gorgeous Laguna Torre trail to Cerro Torre, and later following the Rio Blanco to Laguna de los Tres to take in the awesome sight of Mount Fitz Roy in the distance. The adventure wraps up back in Buenos Aires, where you’ll have the option to explore San Telmo’s funky bohemian market before settling in for the most Argentinian send-off possible: dinner and a spectacular dance performance at Rojo Tango. ...

  • Patricia M — May 24, 2019 — South America

    Overall, we were very pleased with the entire experience. Our guides were excellent, knowledgeable, and friendly. We were also amazed as to how well planned the entire trip was and the support we received throughout. For example, the support we received when our flight was delayed was welcomed and greatly appreciated.

  • Lyle I — March 18, 2019 — South America

    Brandi went above and beyond our expectations. This was a bucket list trip for us and it was fabulous. Renee, in Peru, was incredibly attentive and caring. Mariela Zamora was an excellent guide and gave us 110% service. We are very impressed with Kensington and all of their people.

  • Robert S — June 11, 2019 — South America

    This was the second of what will soon be 3 tours with Kensington. The 1st 2 included 17 people. There is absolutely no aspect of the trips that I can find fault with. All the details were carefully dealt with. All of the people from the office to those "on the ground" were professional and pleasant.

  • Lynn N — February 27, 2019 — South America

    Every aspect of our trip to the Galápagos Islands was perfect. Scalesia Lodge and Finch Bay Hotel were both incredible, our excursions were wonderful, our guides were knowledgeable, and our itinerary was planned and executed effortlessly. Best last minute addition: booking a room at the W at the airport in Quito so that we had a comfortable place to nap and relax during our 6-hour layover (especially since our flight back to the States did not depart until 12:45 am).

  • Shelley R — March 24, 2019 — South America

    Kensington Tours planned our trip to Patagonia when we went to visit our daughter in Buenos Aries. Everything worked like clockwork. Flights, transfers and excursions were all well planned with excellent companies and were stress-free. The excursions were varied, and the guides were excellent. Hotels were top notch and very comfortable. This is the second time I have used Kensington to plan a vacation, and they really make it easy. I gave them the places we wanted to visit and our interests and they took it from there. I highly recommend Kensington Tours!

  • Carmen S. — January 20, 2019 — South America

    Thanks to Kensington Tours we had a fabulous, stress free vacation. The Kensington team (Barbara and Jenny) were extremely helpful in helping us decide on sites to visit and planning our airfares connections and always there to timely answer any questions we had. The guides and drivers were always prompt, knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs and we couldn’t asked for a better trip!

  • Gabriele M. — January 10, 2019 — South America

    We had a great time on our trip to Argentina and Chile. The guides were great.

    We enjoyed the experience very much. Our guides in Bogota (Sebastian) and Medellin (Maria) were excellent and very appropriate for those experiences and are highly recommended.
