Go tango dancing in the streets of Buenos Aires
As the ‘Paris of South America’, Buenos Aires should be at the top of your Argentina honeymoon checklist. To experience the regency and elegance of this romantic city at its finest, stay in Recolata, an area at the heart of the city known for its bourgeois French Renaissance Revival mansions. The gorgeous Alvear Palace, an all-suite hotel that features a marble spiral staircase and gold-leaf furnishings, will treat you like newlywed royals. During your stay, you can indulge in a couple’s spa treatment, cocktails at the elite Lobby Bar, one of the finest Argentinian steak dinners in the city, and the pleasures of the Alvear’s honeymoon-worthy suites.
You need only step outside of the Alvear Palace to find Buenos Aires’ best shopping, dining, parks, museums, and architecture, but exploring El Boca, San Telmo, and Palermo is a must. You also can’t leave the city without experiencing the world’s most passionate and intimate dance — the tango. Treat your partner to watch a tango dance at the famed Faena Hotel or, since you’ve vowed to be each other’s forever dance partner, surprise them with a tango dancing class in a park in Palermo, accompanied by live music, wine, and moonlight.
Get your hike on in El Chalten
Honeymooners with a sense of adventure should add the hiking capital of the world, El Chalten, to their Argentina honeymoon itinerary. Located within reach of Patagonia’s Los Glaciares National Park, El Chalten is the base from which you can embark on some of the most scenic and famous hikes on earth including ‘Laguna de Los Tres’ and the ‘Mt Fit Roy Trek’. Whether you’re an experienced hiker on a multi-day trek or a leisure hiker on a one-day trek, you’ll be rewarded with close-up views of the world’s most pictured mountain peaks.
Since El Chalten is all about the great outdoors, why not fully embrace it with the Chalten Camp glamping experience? Nestled in the forest in sight of Cerro Torre, Chalten Camp features a handful of private glamping domes around the main dome where guests gather to relax, enjoy hearty three-course meals, and swap stories after an adventurous day in Patagonia. Each dome offers panoramic views of Cerro Torre and the forest from its semi-spherical windows, allowing a closer connection with nature than any other nearby accommodation. Amongst its popular hikes, Chalten Camp leads guests on mountain biking, climbing classes, birdwatching, salmon fishing, kayaking tours, and more. By the end of your honeymoon, you’ll have accomplished so many new things together!
Witness the world’s largest waterfall in Iguazu
Get loved up in the jungle on a trip to Iguazu in northern Argentina’s Atlantic Forest, home to the one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, the mighty Iguazu Falls. Spanning 1.7 miles between the Argentine-Brazilian border with 275 drops, the falls are a truly unforgettable sight.
Honeymoons are about spending quality time as a couple, and there’s nowhere better to create it than the phenomenal Awasi Iguazu. As a carbon-neutral resort, Awasi enables you to enjoy immersing in nature on your honeymoon safe in the knowledge you’re not doing it any harm. Each of their 14 shrouded riverside villas comes complete with its own plunge pool, private guide, and 4×4, allowing you and your partner to have Iguazu all to yourselves.
Venturing deep into the jungle and wider Misiones region, Awasi allows you to spot the planet’s best birds of paradise, kayak along its river, and even meet local Guarani tribes. Upon return from your day’s adventures in Iguazu, you’ll be treated to creative garden-to-fork dishes encapsulating flavors inspired by the vibrant Atlantic Forest that surrounds you.
Spend your days sipping Malbec in Mendoza
Mendoza, the nation’s refined and relaxed wine country offers a welcomed change of pace from the cities and mountains on your Argentina honeymoon itinerary. Here, you can simply cycle through the peaceful picturesque vineyards from one luxury wine estate to the other, sampling their sumptuous selection of wines. Known as the world’s largest Malbec producer, there’s no better place than Mendoza to become a connoisseur of this delicious full-bodied wine. By the end of each day, you’ll be sunkissed, a little tipsy, and very satisfied.
Make this part of your Argentina honeymoon itinerary extra special by choosing the enviable ‘Honeymoon Package’ at Cavas Wine Lodge, a luxury hotel, spa, and winery. It includes three nights in a Luxury Room, with a private plunge pool, and terrace with a fireplace; breakfast each day at your leisure; a romantic private dinner on the terrace or in the wine cellar; a wine tasting, olive oil tasting, and a cooking class with the lodge’s chef; and 50-minute massages and a wine bath for two in the spa. If you fancy a bit of adventure between glasses of world-class wine and entrancing massages, you can go hiking, ziplining, and even whitewater rafting in the Mendoza sierras.
Discover rural Argentinian culture in Cordoba
Find a sense of escapism by sampling the simple life as a married couple on a rustic estancia among the Sierras de Cordoba. Located in north central Argentina, the Cordoba province is defined by its vast plains and scenic mountainous forests where you can live on rustic farmsteads and roam freely on horseback toward the endless horizon. After action-packed days touring cities and hiking up mountains, you’ll be happy to have a more relaxed side to your Argentina honeymoon itinerary.
Set in an impressive 18th-century farmhouse on 6,500 acres of land with over 700 cattle and 160 horses, Estancia Los Potreros is one of the best places in Cordoba to get a feel for the beauty of life in rural Argentina. Guests are invited to join the Potreros family in enjoying their favorite pastimes like horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, and birdwatching, but they’re equally encouraged to kick back in a hammock in the garden with a good book. Since food is at the heart of any Argentinian home, guests can join the estancia’s chef in the kitchen to learn the secrets of Argentine cooking and help prepare the farm-to-fork meals for a big communal feast. Be sure to ask for the recipes of your delicious meals so that you can recreate them at home to remind you of this time on your honeymoon for years to come.
Enjoy the outdoors with ease in Bariloche
Whether you visit in spring, summer, fall, or winter, Bariloche is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors at a relaxed pace on your honeymoon. Located on a glacier lake system in northwestern Patagonia, this coniferous mountain region is often likened to the Swiss Alps for its stunning alpine scenery and small A-frame chalets. Its quaint, quiet, and secluded charm makes it one of the more romantic destinations to add to your Argentina honeymoon itinerary.
From skiing to hiking, kayaking, and swimming, there’s a full range of fun and adventurous outdoor pursuits to take up in Bariloche. Whilst they’re naturally challenging, many of these outdoor pursuits are mellower than those found in El Chalten and other Patagonian destinations. It’s therefore ideal for couples looking to immerse in the great outdoors whilst preserving energy to focus on each other.
Combine your adventures with a stay at a relaxing alpine retreat to balance moments of play with rest. With private lake-view lodges featuring a home theater, private spa with aromatherapy, and a hot tub, the Charming Luxury Lodge is one of Bariloche’s best accommodations. After going horse riding, kayaking, or cycling during the day, you can ease your muscles together in the private hot tub and sauna before heading out for a romantic meal for two.
