What's included in this trip
Real Food Adventure - Argentina SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Become acquainted with the history and culture of Buenos Aires over a chat and a plate of parrilla (slow grilled meat) in one of the city’s famed restaurants. Take a tour of the colourful barrios, learn how to bake empanadas (stuffed pastries) or lend a hand at a neighbourhood soup kitchen.
Spend a day with a local family on a working Argentine cattle ranch, learning about the activities that go into running such a large operation. Be treated to a traditional asado barbeque and sip on hot cups of maté, Argentina’s national drink.
Explore the tree-lined streets of Mendoza, pick up some local specialties at the Mercado Central for a picnic and spend an evening on lively Av Aristides Villanueva. Then travel to gorgeous Malbec country and spend some time at an Argentinean vineyard with a local sommelier.
Sample provincial life in Valle de Uco and help with food preparation on an overnight homestay with a local family. Partake in activities such as picking fruit fresh from the trees, visiting a small winery for the local drop and making bread. Then hop on an overnight bus to Bariloche.
Delight in the rich cuisine, local brews and sumptuous delicacies of Bariloche. Be shown all the nooks and crannies of the town on a walking tour, visit an artisan chocolate maker for some sweet samples, taste smoked fish and locally-brewed beers and savour a tasting of local cheeses.
Return to Argentina’s irrepressible capital for a final night of food indulgence. There’s myriad food options in this bustling capital – check out authentic Italian pizza, tuck into one of the country’s renowned steaks or seek out a small bar and nibble on some specialty bar snacks over a drink or two. Buenos Aires is also famous for its tango and live music scene, so perhaps finish up this food adventure at a live music venue or tango show.
