Two month itinerary Argentina. Beginning Buenos Aires

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. I will be setting off on a year long trip to South America in just seven and a half weeks. My trip is starting in Buenos Aires in Argentina and I am looking to spend approximately two months there.

I am new to travelling solo and for a long period of time and in such big Countries.

My goal for my trip is to spend time with the locals getting to know their way of life while also learning Spanish. I have been learning Spanish this year however I am still just a beginner. I want to get off the beaten track and see the core of Argentina.

I have started pinning places I would like to visit on a map then plan the route I will take. Please take a look at the map to see locations I would like to visit.

I want to see as much as possible but would like to settle in locations for a short time so I am not just continually on buses etc.

I arrive in Buenos Aires on the 27th of November and would like to take a look around the city, I was thinking of a tour with Buenos Aires Free Walks. I am not much of a city person so I don't think I will be there for any more than 5 days. I am still looking for accommodation for when I arrive. I may also meet up with some people from Couchsurfing.

From here I was thinking of travelling north via bus to the Misiones Region and seeing Iguazu falls and for some wwoofing for a week in El Soberbio.

From here travel north west to the Salta region and then South down to El Calafate to see the glaciers.

I would like to spend approximately four weeks WWOOFING in different locations to experience different climates and farming varieties.

Everything is quite loose and nothing is set in stone as to direction of travel and time spent in each location. I want to have a general idea of where I am going but don't want to lock to many things in in case things change.

I would like to go into Chile next and am wondering the best place to cross the border from the South after seeing the glaciers in El Calafate. I will then make my way north through Chile.

If anyone can provide information of suggested travel direction and if I have missed any places that are a must see this would be greatly appreciated. I am interested in the outdoors, hiking, photography, mountain biking, rafting, etc. I am happy to camp as I will have a tent for some wwoofing locations.

Once I move into Chile/Bolivia/Peru/Ecuador/Colombia. I am looking more into volunteer work as travel.
