It’s time for romance to hit the road. Say Hueque (http://www.sayhueque.com/), a leading tour operator specializing in authentic experiences for independent travelers in Argentina and Chile, announces a newly launched 18-day, self-drive honeymoon adventure through northern Argentina.
Designed to be simultaneously romantic and adventurous, the trip highlights several less-touristed regions of Argentina including Salta, Mendoza and Iguassu Falls. Say Hueque does the advance planning, including booking all accommodations and domestic flights (extra cost).
With lodging and suggested routes prearranged, this is the perfect tour for a couple seeking a unique and exploratory launch to their life together. Instead of relaxing on a beach, they will bond with their spouse while navigating through national parks, ruins and picturesque villages while taking in the unique scenery of Argentina. The trip begins and ends in Buenos Aires.
Because this is customizable by the participants, the final per couple rate is based on the choice and quality of lodgings with four different price categories starting at $3,030 per couple (two people).

After touring and tango for three nights in Buenos Aires, guests move from the plains into the tropics, self-driving to Iguassu in order to explore the falls from both Argentina and Brazil before flying to Salta.
An immersion in landscape and geology follows with a stop at Santa Rosa del Tastil, a pre Inca city with 18th Century ruins, Salinas Grandes (Big Salts Flats) which once accommodated a pre-historic people, and Humahuaca Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was once part of the Camino Inca trade route dating back 10,000 years.
Tilcara (7217 Ft.) is along the route with its Pucará (old Indian fortress) as well as the Archaeological Museum, and the old church of Uquial. Enroute are farmers, ranchers and artisans carrying on centuries-old traditions. A flight to Mendoza brings guests to the foothills of the Andes and vineyards, plus opportunities to sip wine and coffee at outdoor cafes on tree-lined streets.
As Say Hueque owner Rafael Mayer explains, “We are a group of Argentine travel professionals who are passionate about our country. We have hiked in Patagonia, felt the mist of Iguassu Falls on our smiling faces, walked along glaciers and cruised the deep blue lakes of South America. We have visited hundreds of hotels, sampled hundreds of restaurants and discovered the best wineries around, so we know exactly where to get a delicious steak, a sublime Malbec and a comfy bed along the way.”
Say Hueque creates customized tours for independent travelers throughout Argentina’s and Chile´s national parks and cities. Popular destinations and experiences include Buenos Aires, Iguassu Falls, Perito Moreno Glacier, hiking in Patagonia, wine tasting in Mendoza, horseback riding at traditional estancias and glacier cruises.
Say Hueque adopted its name from the last tribal chief that surrendered to the Europeans in their conquest of the American lands, in 1885. The Great Cacique Say Hueque was the leader of a powerful tribe that occupied the region of central Patagonia. Their cultural influence is still very strong at some locations close to the Andes Range.
