Parting Shots: Romanced by Argentina on a Sensational Buenos Aires, Calafate & Patagonia Honeymoon

Argentina South America

Lindsey and Jim celebrated their new marriage on their Argentina / Patagonia honeymoon by exploring the dazzling sights, rich culture, and breathtaking wilderness of Argentina. They started out in Buenos Aires, getting the chance to attend one of the country’s most famed cultural highlights: a Tango & Folklore Show. They also took several guided walks around the city, exploring the unique neighborhoods, learning about the culture and history up-close, and seeing the incredible street art that gives Buenos Aires part of its vibrant feel. Continue reading to learn more about the Patagonia portion of their honeymoon.

The next portion of their trip took them south to Argentine Patagonia, first visiting Calafate, where they boated through serene Lago Argentino and stood in front of the magnificent Perito Moreno glacier, and then they hiked along paths of the nearly untouched wilderness while visiting Estancia Cristina.

For the next few days of their trip, they stayed at a luxury lodge in Southern Patagonia. With sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and river just in front of the lodge as their scenery, Lindsey and Jim were able to tailor their activities to their liking, choosing to be as active or leisurely as they wished. They then moved on to the final portion of their trip with a short stay at estancia Candelaria del Monte before departing for home.
