Rough itinerary blocking - Argentina and Brazil - comments appreciated

Jump to last reply

We have 9 weeks (+/-) in Argentina and Brazil early next year (Jan 15 to Mar 21). I'm blocking out our itinerary and would appreciate comments/suggestions on the following - I'm having to do this quite quickly without my usual research as we had to book our flights on points this week. So this is a very early itinerary, before my usual research.

Arrive BA January 15 - we have 3 weeks to tour around Argentina before our apartment rental in BA. Current thoughts are to fly onwards to Bariloche and pick up a rental car there and drive back to BA heading north to Mendoza and Salta and then into BA. Haven't researched that route - perhaps it's crazy....but it looks good. Also we would be dropping off the car as a one way rental - issues?

We have been to Ushuaia and other points south on another trip so are looking to stay further north as indicated above.

4 weeks in BA - day/overnight trips to Montevideo/other beach towns.

Leave BA early March - thinking we would fly to Iguazu then onwards to Rio (for 3 days or so) and then onwards for an Amazon Cruise (4 nights?) then back to Sao Paulo for our return to Toronto. This portion could be 16 days (or more if necessary)

We will keep our plans loose in the hopes of picking up a last minute deal to Antarctica - I've been tracking cruise pricing for the last few years and hope we can pick up a good deal while we're in South America.

Realize my question is a bit vague but would appreciate comments on the overall blocking of time - we have some flexibility on the BA apartment rental timing.
