Self-drive Argentina: Highlights of the hidden northwest

14 days from £3,580pp

(based on two people sharing & excluding flights)

Argentina / Iguazu Falls

  • Argentine Tourist Board ©

Overview & Highlights

Drive from Salta through wild canyons, Spanish colonial towns and vineyards in the Andean northwest, with Buenos Aires and the Iguazú Falls..

We’ve enhanced this holiday of self-drive exploration in Argentina’s north-west at the foot of the Andes with time in the magnificent capital, Buenos Aires and a visit to the immense Iguazú Falls.

The sunlit mountains and russet-red rockscapes of the provinces of Salta and Jujuy are a rugged canvas interwoven with white colonial churches, characterful markets and adobe villages. The scenery is especially lovely when shades of green, wildflowers and deep red carpets of chilis drying out in the high-altitude sunshine add vibrant glimpses of colour to the view through your windscreen. Throughout the year, there’s tasty regional food and wine to please your taste buds too. Our self-drive holidays give you freedom as soon as you get behind the wheel but you have the added security of knowing your accommodation is booked for you at the end of a day on the road.

Our Expert's Opinion

This holiday would be a great option for someone who has already been to Argentina, perhaps seen the south of the country, and would now like to explore the northwest at their own pace in a hire car. It's a wonderful region that offers beautiful, scenic drives through rugged canyons and multi-coloured rock formations. We've pre-booked your accommodation along the way so that you have the security of knowing where you'll be staying each night.
