As of November 1st, Argentina opened its borders to the world. Innumerable landscapes throughout the country make glamping one of the best options to connect with nature and feel immersed in it.
Would you like to sleep in a huge bed in the moonlight? Impressive mountains, endless green vineyards, glorious sunsets on the horizon, star-filled skies, and the forests’ pure aromas could be the scenery of your next room in Argentina. How? Glamping, the accommodation trend that allows you to connect with nature in its purest state.
If you want to travel in harmony with nature, glampings satisfy the green requirement. The areas are conditioned so as not to invade the environment using a variety of resources. For example, solar panels, recycled materials, and fine-material geodesic domes are used; local food is served, there’s minimal plastic use, and outdoor activities are promoted. The aim is to reduce as much as possible the impact on nature so that tourists can responsibly enjoy the benefits of the environment.
Where Can You Enjoy It in Argentina?
- Patagonia —Live an Immersive Experience in the Mountains
It’s not surprising that most glampings have been developed in some areas of the wonderful Argentinian Patagonia. From Santa Cruz to Bariloche, Villa La Angostura, Calafate, El Chaltén, San Martín de los Andes and even the well-known End of the World, Ushuaia. Southern Argentina destinations offer around 20 glamping alternatives to admire the essence of the south from the front row. For instance, El Chaltén Camp location is privileged as it stands at the foot of the unmistakable Fitz Roy mountain peaks in Santa Cruz. If it’s about sustainability, Huemules is a true paradise in Esquel. Immersed in the 6,000 hectares of the Mountain Reserve, this glamping honours this part of the globe, promoting sustainability in every detail: recycled wood, personnel trained in environmental management, waste sterilisation, and more great practices. In Bariloche, the Mallin Alto glamping is characterised by its 1,700 metres high above sea level. In Ushuaia, the world’s most southern city, Llanos Ecolodge decorates the winter scenery with domes that turn the mountain refuge into a perfect place.
- Mendoza —Sleep Surrounded by Grapes and Vineyards.
Don’t you find sleeping surrounded by mountain ranges, vineyards, and the world’s best wines tempting? In this destination, adventure tourism in different landscapes and worldwide prize-winning wineries coexist. It’s almost a must choosing accommodation immersed in this natural environment, at the foot of the Andes. Valle de Uco Alpasion Lodge is one of the alternatives if you are looking for that. Entre Cielos has high standards with avant-garde architecture, and private terraces with hot tubs. After hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, or skiing, having a glass of wine surrounded by an Andean portrait is the perfect icing on the cake.
- North —in Jujuy Salt Flats
When someone asks you at the airport for your accommodation address, you’ll be able to say Salinas Grandes or the Great Salt Flats, and you won’t be lying. This amazing glamping invites you to sleep in the endless white field of the wonderful salt flats in Jujuy. Four domes play the leading role in the glamping that offers you a night’s sleep in one of Argentina’s Seven Wonders.
As of November 1st, Argentina welcomes worldwide travellers without the need to quarantine. You will be able to travel freely around the country and to different provinces, and enjoy the distinguished diversity of the End of the World country.
