When to go: December – March
Where You’ll Go
Patagonia is a region of soul-stirring terrains. Hiking? Check. Fly fishing? Check. Look to Argentina’s pristine rivers. Ice-trekking? You’ll find that too. You can also sip on rich Chilean reds sourced straight from the country’s clay-rich soils and tuck into fresh-off-the-fire beef cooked up during a traditional Asado (Argentinian barbecue). This adventure honeymoon takes you from the rugged landscapes of Torres del Paine, into the glassine lake district of Bariloche and on to the wine-making region of Mendoza.
What You’ll Do
Argentina’s Torres del Paine National Park is a paradise of 22,298 hectares of fairytale forests and lakes. Hike, bike, and mountaineer with one of our specialists in search of the elusive Patagonian puma. If you would rather glide along the water, there’s fly fishing with a private guide. Prefer a bird’s eye view? A helicopter tour that takes you to the edge of the glacier can be arranged, too. Back home at your luxury villa, watch the sun go down from your alfresco hot tub with a glass of wine in hand.
Next, fly north to Bariloche for fishing, rafting, and kayaking. Take a day trip to explore Nahuel Huapi Lake via private motor yacht, where you’ll enjoy a gourmet lunch cooked for you on the shores of a private beach. The next day, saddle up to explore your surroundings by horseback. Come nightfall, enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime chance to sleep in total isolation in a luxury camp while our passionate staff expertly cares for you and your personal astronomer explains the most important stars in the night’s sky.
Round out your trip by sipping the finest wines in the Andes in Mendoza’s prestigious Uco Valley, where the rolling landscapes are as charming as the grapes. Ride horses into the countryside with the wind whipping in your hair, gallop up to Manzano Historico for a tour guided by authentic Argentine gauchos. Stop at the peak for a hearty meal of grilled meats as you inhale the smell of skirt steak, short ribs, and sirloin slowly roasting over the crackling flames.
What You’ll Learn
In addition to learning about Patagonia’s landscapes, wine and food-obsessed newlyweds will have the chance to take their knowledge of the regions’ gastronomic offerings to the next level with this gourmet getaway.
