You’ll be staying at Rio Quillen, one of Argentina’s great estancias with a programme geared for riding, fishing, roaming lofty Andean plains, refreshing lake swims, shady siestas and hearty picnics. Each day, take in pristine wilderness landscapes from the saddle, with rides led by gauchos to volcanic lagoons, soaring mountain peaks and thick forests of lenga, monkey puzzle and pinewood trees.
Accommodation is wild, cosy and comfortable. The main house, Casa Quillen, offers spectacular views of the peaceful Quillen Valley. Here you’ll feast on traditional Argentine specialties such as Cordero al Palo (slow-roasted lamb) accompanied by a glass or two of Malbec. At Quillen Camp, a truly off-grid experience awaits. Sleep under canvas in African safari-style tents, nestled in the horseshoe of a river and overlooked by a towering volcano. Wake to the sound of birdsong and a crackling fire.
This Patagonian adventure is bookended with time spent in Argentina’s buzzing capital, Buenos Aires. Arrive at an elegant mansion in the leafy neighbourhood of Recoleta, and round off your trip with a night in a charming boutique hotel in fashionable Palermo.
