Hike the wine regions of Argentina
Salta and Mendoza
Argentina ranks fifth in wine production in the world. And its vines grow on the western valleys and slopes of Andes Mountain Range, creating a stunning combination of high vineyards, snow-capped mountains, red formations and beautiful bodegas. In North West Argentina, hike in different valleys, visit wineries more than 150 years old, pair the unique altitude wines with regional food. Hike on paths designed by the Inca and lunch in haciendas once ruled by Spanish lords. Then move to Mendoza, the wine capital of Argentina, and hike at the foot of Aconcagua, the highest peak in the western hemisphere. Combine this with tastings, olive oil and local produce. Hike up the Andes and next day blend your own wine. Lodge in absolute comfort.
