What you can expect

Set out to explore the town of Tigre – named after the jaguars hunted on this island by the area’s first settlers – with a scenic cruise on a vintage mahogany river boat. Take in the town’s marinas and elegant Belle Epoque mansions, and enjoy a taste of Argentine cuisine with a riverfront lunch.

After being picked up at your hotel, ride down the Avenida Libretador—the longest road in Buenos Aires at 16 miles (25 km) in length.

Step aboard a handsome wooden boat for a scenic ride along the waterfront as your guide shares information on the river-dependent lifestyle of the area's inhabitants, known as isleños. Admire the turn-of-the-century splendour of the palatial Tigre Art Museum, see pedestrians strolling down waterfront walkways along the Rio Lujan and check out the British-influenced architecture in the area’s Victorian and Tudor revival homes.

After a delicious lunch of Argentine specialities on the river, visit the Puerto de Frutos, a crafts fair that is housed in a former riverside fruit market. Shop for local wares and then head to San Isidro, a peaceful and affluent residential community which is full of old colonial villas and luxurious mansions. Spend some time in its cobbled streets, step into the neo-Gothic cathedral and wander the historic Plaza Mitre before returning to central Buenos Aires.
