it looks very good, you are going to have a very good time I think, weather can be very hot during that time in BA, but not so bad in the south.

Good luck!!!!!

Hi Jack,
I think your itinerary looks really good. I think the Lake District and the Glaciers are a very good option for summer days. You'll find really good tours there, the landscapes are beautiful. And summers aren't very hot in that part of the country while in BA is really hot during January. However, if you come all the way here it would be worth it spending some time around the city of Buenos Aires. I'm sure you'll have a great trip! Best of lucks!

oh, and if you like shopping, don't take too much clothes with you, you are going to find very good prices and really good design. I always go to Argentina with empty suitcases and come back full :-)

I would not omit a trip to the Northwest. The areas around Salta contain the most diverse, fantastic and beautiful landscapes anywhere in all the world.

I also would recommend to add some days Salta and surroundings ! There are many places such as
- Salta itself
- Quebrada de Humahuaca
- Tren de las Nubes (if and when it runs ...)
- Colomé (http://www.estanciacolome.com/)
and many more !

Thanks for the feedback. We're going to rent a vehicle and tour around the wine country, the lake district and patagonia. Is it possible to drive BETWEEN these 3 areas or should we plan to fly or take an overnight bus? Has anyone driven Ruta 40 between these 3 areas?

Jack: Ruta 40 now a day it's very nice to drive. In the very south’s of Patagonia, it still has no pavement, so maybe can be a little hard if you are not use to drive those kind of routes or if your car is not prepare. Argentina has very long distances, so if you drive your own car, you will be able to know places that in other way, you will never get. If you can do it, go for it, you will love it. I have a friend who lives in Bariloche. He has a Mitsubishi Montero. He drives groups all around Ruta 40. If you want, I can contact him with you. Cheers
