This very special one-off holiday departure is a feast for all the senses. Built around the observation of a rare total eclipse of the sun, set to be visible in the central sierras - easterly foothills of the Andes - it also harnesses the opportunity to listen to live performances of tango rhythms in Buenos Aires and savour the flavours and aromas of street food in the capital. Reach out and touch the sculpted arid landscapes and ornate curves of baroque architecture in the cities and villages of the Andean northwest to complete a truly sensual experience.
Your will stay in Córdoba, a pleasant city and convenient base for your astronomer-guided day trip to the town Rio Cuarto, where, skies permitting, the eclipse can be witnessed in unobstructed splendour. It’s one of only a few sites across the globe where the moon will totally obliterate the normally blinding disc of the sun, plunging the landscape around into inky darkness - if only for a few fleeting minutes. Accommodation and other services in the area around 2 July, when the eclipse takes place, will be in great demand so we suggest you book now to avoid disappointment.
