From the high Altiplano to the heart of Argentina's grasslands, this holiday-length trip will takes you through some of South America's most beautiful landscapes. Beginning in Bolivia's capital La Paz, you’ll enjoy an overnight homestay in the Bolivian Andes before heading across the high plateau to the dramatic expanse of the Uyuni Salt Flats, crossing the unreal wilderness of the high Altiplano (the second highest plateau in the world) before descending into Chile. You’ll visit the atmospheric town of San Pedro before crossing into Argentina to explore the world-class vineyards this region is so famous for before what is for many, the highlight of the trip. Unique to Dragoman, you’ll stay on an Anglo-Argentine estancia, or ranch, where you’ll meet the gauchos – Argentinian cowboys – who you’ll ride out with across the grasslands. After time to explore the historic city of Cordoba the trip ends in vibrant Buenos Aires.
