It means that the explorations are focused on enjoying the landscapes and animals of each place.
There are options for everyone, by vehicle, by boat, hiking, on horseback, by bike, etc. The important thing is to be in contact with the environment, with nature and with the wildlife of each place.
It is reccommended to wear comfortable clothing and footwear for outdoor activities. Water proof clothing and dress in layers, can help you cope with all climates and terrains.
For some explorations it is better to go with a guide and for others you can go on your own. It depends on the intensity and regulation of each activity, it also depends if the experience improves significantly with the explanation of the guide or if it is better to do it independently, but there are options for all preferences.
Of course, there are options for everyone. Some are more demanding and others are suitable for everyone, such as boat rides and hikes.
Depending on the destination you choose, you will be able to observe everything from alligators, monkeys, foxes and anacondas to whales, sea lions and penguins.

Adventure yourself while discovering unique wildlife and experiencing majestic landscapes.
Nature trails are usually short and easy tracks through natural areas where you will have the chance to breathe fresh air, spot incredible wildlife species and feel absolutely invigorated. This kind of trail doesn’t typically involve much elevation gain, making it a great family activity to open the world to the children, enjoy nature with grandparents and make everlasting memories.
These are some of the nature trails that you can experience in Argentina:
Discover an incredible nature reserve just steps away from the big city, in Costanera Sur. Explore the only nature reserve of Argentina’s capital city, walk through the walkways to admire the native species of flora and fauna and fill up your mind with peace.
Adventure yourself in this 2-hour and a half trail where you will walk through a lush jungle, home to amazing fauna such as monkeys, coatis, colorful butterflies and over 900 bird species and discover one of the 7 Wonders of Nature, the Iguazú Falls.
At this nature temple, you will find trails for all tastes: hiking, biking, or running.
Best part? This extensive network of marshes, grasslands and lagoons are home to an incredible variety of wildlife, including over 300 bird species, 85 mammals, 45 amphibians, and 35 reptiles. That means that encounters with native wildlife species are almost guaranteed!
This national park located in Ushuaia offers nature trails for hikers of all levels, and also some easy walks for families too. During the hike, you will enjoy breathtaking landscapes combining mountains, forests, lakes, lagoons, and much more!
Located in the Lake District of Argentina, precisely in Villa la Angostura, this natural park that hosts a large Arrayanes wood is one of a kind in the world. Take the walkways and walk amongst the centennial trees experiencing a magical and mystical feel. For adventurers, there is a 7 mileskm path surrounded by native forests that can be done by bike or walking.
For penguin lovers, Punta Tombo is paradise! Visit this nature reserve that holds its claim to fame as one of the largest Magellanic penguin colonies in the world and take its trails to find yourself literally waddling alongside the penguins!
Iguazú Falls is the perfect destination to combine with a visit to Iberá Wetland. In fact, it is one of our most adventurous trips! Iberá is the second-largest wetland in the world with more than 3.2 million acres of land. This magical place has diverse wildlife and it’s a paradise for birders, with more than 350 species of birds. Also, for wildlife lovers, there are more than 60 types of animals such as caimans, capybaras, howler monkeys, foxes, anacondas and much more!
In the Iguazú subtropical rainforest you will find plenty of wildlife species such as gigantic otters, anteaters, deer-like hares, colorful butterflies, coatis and even jaguars, howler monkeys, capybaras, yacarés, and anacondas! This incredible destination is also a perfect place for birdwatching where you will get to see tropical birds such as hummingbirds, flamingos, swallows, and toucans. A piece of advice: If you visit Iguazu Fall National Park, be careful with the coatis as they will for sure try to steal your food!
This is our premium trip in Iguazú, you will stay in a luxury hotel inside the park and have access to the catwalks, at night! There are some species that only get active at sundown. Full moons are also a worthy spectacle to see in Iguazú Falls!
Puerto Madryn hosts one of the greatest places in the world to spot whales: Peninsula Valdés. From June to November hundreds of Southern Right Whales, recognized for having a black body with white belly and chin patches and a large head covered in callosities, come to its shores to meet and breed. Sometimes in the season, it is even possible to walk along the shoreline and spot young whale mothers with their calves! For up-close encounters, take a whale-watching navigation tour and don’t forget your camera!
Visit Península Valdés, Puerto Madryn and a secluded ranch in Bahía Bustamente with this 100% tailor-made trip!
Known as “The End of the World” this southern city is home to amazing marine species such as sea lions, beavers and red foxes but the star here is definitely the penguin! Magellanic Penguins (identifiable by their distinctive white band which loops from each eye and meets at the underside of the throat) visit Isla Martillo from October to April for their breeding season, while Gentoo Penguins (the ones with orange beaks and peach-color feet) can be seen all year round here. Walk with these black and white birds!
We created this trip as a family adventure but you can tailor it to your traveling needs. Travel to see penguins in Ushuaia, and visit glaciers in El Calafate too! You can depart from Buenos Aires.
Or get even farther away from civilization with this cruise to explore the southernmost lands before Antarctica, like Cape Horn! The Antarctic region is full of spectacular marine wildlife and birds.

Now that we are back I just thought to write to you and thank you for the amazing trip and the organisations you did. First of all Argentina is amazing and I wish, really wish you guys know it despite the financial and political incompetence everyone complained about. About the trip: My background is biology, so you can imagine how excited I was seeing all the biological and geographical diversity in Ushuaia and then in Iguazu... Everything about the tours in Ushuaia and Iguazu was well managed and was great (even one day there was a mix up with the tours in Iguazu but at the end it was sorted and even became super special). We had no issue with the luggages etc.,. Thank you. There was only one small thing that I thought to tell you about: the hotel Mil810. It was a bit annoying, there were several issues with it, one was that the walls that are super thin, so I could hear everything happening in the next door (the snoring, the showering and even when they brushed their teeth, I could not sleep due to the snoring of the man next door :D). The internet was super unstable and even one night we did not have any and also their breakfast was super super basic. Yet these could be temporary issues and also maybe there in Ushuaia internet might be an issue in general but I thought to let you know anyways. But again, all and all it was an amazing trip and everything went smoothly and I hope to be back to Argentina one day again....
We had a very nice time. The flights were fine and on time. The estancia Rincon del Socorro was fantastic!!! Beautiful place, we were one with the beautiful nature, good food and drinks, very friendly stafff, very nice guided tours. We experienced 4 wonderful days!! ...including the fires... We have experienced the fires around the Estancia from close by. The staff has taken good care of us, offered us an alternative dinner and brought us safely back to the estancia. Afterwards Wilfried and I spent another 3 nights, 2 days in Posadas. Despite the fact that it was very hot, we had a great time. We had 2 tours: The city tour was short, but good as a first introduction to the city. About the tour to San Ignacio Mini. and the mate-tour we want to say the following: You had a whole day planned. So we had expected a whole day, with the possibility of lunch in a local village. This was not the case. The visit to San Ignacio mini was very good, but we had expected more from the mate tour. The mate tour was just a short visit to the factory and a video screening, we had hoped to see more of the mate plantations themselves. The tour only lasted a good half day, we were driven back to Posadas and then had lunch there. We are happy to have been introduced to a very beautiful nature reserve Iberà in Corrientes and we are glad that we got a nice impression of Misiones.
I would just like to say a big thank you for your help; we had a wonderful time and came back feeling that we had a very good picture of your amazing country : the variety, the sheer vastness and the (mostly) happy attitude of the people towards life; I would also like to comment on the excellence of all the guides we had - Tina in BA, Chris (I think) in Tierra del Fuego, Celia in P Iguazú and Eduardo in Salta who drove us many hundreds of kilometres with great skill and patience. They were all very knowledgeable and good humoured and obviously enjoy their job. All the transfers were punctual and stress free and I thank you again for making our holiday such a pleasure.
We had a 14 day private tour organized by Say Hueque, visiting Salta, Calafate, Train to the Clouds, Salinas Grande, Purmamarca, IguazuFalls (both countries), Estancia Ombu and BA sites and Tango. All the transits, tours, guides, drivers and accommodations were excellent. We had to use the emergency number once and that to was well handled in off hours by customer service. The scenery, the cities /towns, the wine and the people were beyond our expectations. We recommend Say Hueque!
Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for a fantastic holiday in Argentina! We loved the country and the people. The highlights for us was Iguazu Falls, the wine tour & the little hotel in Mendoza and the Glacier trekking. The Glacier was amazing!!! All flights were on time and your guides were always there to meet and great. Please pass on a special thank you to Carla who looked after us in BA and kept in touch all through our travels. Thanks again to Lujan, who did a fantastic job putting it all together and we will recommend you and your company to all our friends & family.
Everything was well organized and went according to plan. There was a workers strike going on when we arrived at the airport which concerned us about being able to connect with our guide bit had our problems. They had it all worked out. Our agent was extremely helpful and responsive. Had a wonderful time. Iguazú Falls is a must see with Say Hueque.
Hi Ezequiele Just a short note to thank you for all your arrangements - everything went perfectly and your tour guides were tremendous!!! The Falls were absolutely stunning and we got our boat trip under the falls and also got to see Devil's Throat - all safe and sound and back home now and planning next holiday already!!! Regards and thank you Vivien Petrie and Sue Pitsinos
Ibera was fantastic and i am soooo glad we got to know this place because nearly noone knows about it. That is so cool! Patagonia was stunning with its Perito Moreno, a really unique experience as well. El Chalten has been very windy but the hike was so cool! Argentine Experience was incredible, it was such a great evening!!! Definitely highly recommendable! Thank you so much for all your help and organization. It has been an unforgettable trip and we loved it so much!
