"Kimkim is the perfect solution for independent travelers who are too busy to plan it all themselves" - Gayle R., traveled with kimkim in October 2019

Introducing Argentina

Argentina exudes passion. From the steamy dance of tango to the cult of futbol, Argentinean culture is as flavorful as its cuisine.

When is the best time to visit?
Since Argentina is a vast country, with climates ranging from the warm North to the icy South, when to visit really depends on where you plan on going. But as a general rule of thumb, travelers should aim to visit from April to June (fall) or from September to December (spring). Learn more

Where should I go in Argentina?
City life in Buenos Aires is a constant blur and a must-see for any visitor interested in soaking up the exciting culture of this country. Argentina boasts a host of natural splendors as well, from the Iguazú Falls in the subtropical north to the icy beauty of Perito Moreno Glacier and the Andean salt flats. Whatever destination travelers prefer, most will agree on one thing: there’s nothing like a well-grilled Argentinian steak accompanied by a glass of local red wine. Learn more

How many days do I need?
To truly experience Argentina, and eat your way through their diverse cuisine, plan to spend at least 10 days in this high-energy country. Learn more

Getting around in Argentina
Given its size, most itineraries in Argentina include domestic flights that take several hours. Renting a car and setting off on a road trip is also a great way to explore Argentina, though most travelers stick to regions for their road trips, and fly between regions. Learn more

We loved hiking the Perito Moreno Glacier, it was amazing. The all glaciers boat tour was amazing as well especially if you upgrade to The Captains Club. Rolpho, or Rudy for short, was fantastic in communicating the history of the Iguazú falls and understanding when we wanted to move on. We did both sides, Brazil and Argentina, and the boat ride at the bottom. We highly recommend all. read more

I will never travel without kim kim again! From start to finish we were treated like royalty and had amazing guides/drivers etc. Marina was available to answer any questions and each excursion/activity was beyond our expectations. In Iguana, Laura Pomilio (our guide) was so knowledgeable about the rich history and all the ins and outs of the national parks. It felt like having a fast pass at Disney World everywhere we went. Pablo, our tour on the heart of the city bike trip, was amazing and gave us a close up look at all the major landmarks and cool neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. The asado, El Fogon restaurant, was out of this world. You get to see close up in an intimate setting how all their delicious meats are prepared and grilled before you. The Panoramic Hotel in Iguazu was lovely and a short walk from a yummy food market and many delicious restaurants and fun shops. We were only in Argentina for a week, but we packed it all in. So much more to see and explore in this beautiful country!!

Biking Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires

The four of us had our own private guide, Pablo. He was a wealth of knowledge about the city and her amazing history. Some of the places we visited were like hidden gems that only Pablo knew about. We experienced our first mate! It was yummy! The bikes were a conversation starter everywhere we went. They were made from bamboo! Very lightweight but super comfortable seats. We were all a little nervous initially riding bikes in such a busy city, but Pablo knew all the back roads and kept us safe the entire trip. This tour is a must on your first days in BA!

Our personal guide, Laura, was the sweetest and most knowledgeable tour guide. Her passion for the ecology, environment and history of the rich culture of Argentina made our experience even deeper. We opted for the boat adventure on the Argentine side of the falls. Be prepared to have your breath taken away and also to get soaked!! Totally worth it. But bring a change of clothes. They give you bags to keep your belongings dry on board.
