The province of Mendoza, in the West of the country, is Argentina’s most important wine region. It’s location in the Andean foothills, close to Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak outside of Asia, gives it the perfect environment for growing wine whilst enjoying some of the most stunning scenery ever seen. For those who enjoy the outdoors but also the odd glass of Malbec, a trip to Mendoza is a must. Mendoza enjoys four distinct seasons each year but the temperature varies depending on if you’re in the lowlands or the hills. The lowlands have very hot summers and mild winters, ideal for a wine tasting tour around the vineyards, whereas you can expect warm summers and cold, snowy winters if you’re up in the hills, perfect conditions for both our summer hiking and rafting trips and our winter skiing and ice climbing expeditions.
