Overview & Highlights

Many of the wineries and countryside estates in Chile and Argentina offer innovative and high quality accommodation with imaginative cuisine and wines created in situ. Stay at working wine lodges in the Andean vineyard regions of both.

This holiday is a blissful journey for lovers of wine and unsullied mountain landscapes. You'll stay at a few of our favourite wineries in the golden wine-country of the eastern and western slopes of the Andes in Argentina and Chile. These are atmospheric and welcoming properties where you can enjoy not only the glorious countryside but also top-quality regional cuisine and locally produced wines. 

Your holiday begins in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, considered to be Latin America’s most sophisticated and European city with wide boulevards, colonial architecture and café society. It ends on the other side of the continent at Santiago, the equally vivacious capital of Chile.

What our clients say

  • I enjoyed the mountain scenery and also walking in the forests. Watching a ship passing through the lock on the Panama Canal. Zip lining and the Tarzan swing was a good adrenelin rush.

  • Machu Picchu. What a privilege to go to such a stunning place. It was a little too busy in the morning, but walking part of the Inca Trail to the Sun Gate in the afternoon, when it had quietened down was an experience I will never forget. The train from Puno to Cusco was also something very special. In fact, most of the trip was just amazing. Well organised and we saw so much that would probably have been impossible as a solo traveller.

  • Most memorable experience? - It was the feeling that it had been planned by people at JLA who love the continent and want their customers to enjoy it too. There was great selection, variation and pacing. Above all, the quality of the experience was exceptional - from our consultant right from the outset through to tour leader and a host of local guides, drivers and hotels. A 101 organisational arrangements went like clockwork and the highest levels of professionalism and quality were always evident. So THANK YOU, JLA for our best holiday anywhere, anytime - WE WILL  BE BACK !!!

  • Jacana was a fascinating, very well organised 3 week tour through Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia and Lima taking in the highlights of each country. Every day gave us a new experience which will stay in our memories for a long time to come.

  • The day we visiting the Frida Kahlo and Trotsky museums and also the canal. As well as all the wonderful pyramids and the Copper Canyon extension were among my highlights. We were very impressed with our first experience of travelling with JLA. We have been to several Central and South American countries before and had underestimated the impact that Mexico would have on us. It had such a variety of experiences to offer, the colour, the music, the many different and dramatic archeological sites and political history. The ethnic mix added to the diversity and the people were all a delight to meet. JLA allowed us to experience this in its selection of places, accommodation, excursions and especially the tour leader.

  • It is an itinerary which covers different environments and allows interaction with the wonderful Colombian people plus time to see what is in each place.
