About to get married to your amazing friend and lover, you both want to spend your honeymoon in a place that would both enhance the bond of your eternal love for each other. Given that you are both open to the idea of international travel, you thought that spending your first days as life partners should take place in a deeply beautiful place that neither of you had been.
After days of intense debate over which spot on the globe would host your romantic getaway, you both finally agreed on the Argentinian Andes. And what an amazing choice you made! One of the most starkly beautiful mountain ranges on Earth, you will be deeply inspired by your surroundings at every turn.
However, Argentina is a big country, and Andes span the entire length of the country from north to south. How do you choose a place to stay from so many worthy choices? Here at Honeymoon Holidays Guide, we have rolled up our sleeves and have done the mental heavy lifting for you. All you have to do is check out our top picks for a romantic Argentinian Andes honeymoon, and pick. No matter what you choose, you will not go wrong…
1) San Martin De Los Andes – This gorgeous skiing, hiking, and adventure sports destination is perfect for couples that love physical activity. Even if you are not into any of that, you can still enjoy epic views in the Spring of the snow-capped Lanin volcano, shop for swiss chocolate in the shops downtown, enjoy dulce de leche over tea, and lounge on the beach at Lacar Lake during the summer.
2) Salta – Do desert-type mountains appeal to you more? If this is the case, than Salta is an excellent choice for your honeymoon. Ride the cable car up San Bernardo Hill to get a commanding view of the city, and then take a tour outside the city limits to see the salt flats or the gorges. After arriving back in town, have a romantic dinner at El Solar del Covento, where the pre-main course champagne is cheap at 8 pesos a glass. Finally, settle back in at Altalaluna Boutique Hotel, which has spa facilities on site that will lull you into a perfect state of relaxation.
3) Ushuaia – Dying of heat and humidity, and like skiing/snowboarding, hiking, and other adventure sports? If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, getting married in the Fall and you need to chill out, then Ushuaia’s place you shouldn’t miss. Billed as being at the end of the world, and indeed, one of the world’s southernmost cities, Ushuaia is ringed by the southern terminus of the Andean mountain chain, and is starkly beautiful in all seasons. While it is an amazing place to spend a memorable honeymoon, be sure to pack warm clothes, as the average high doesn’t generally exceed 15c (60f) at the peak of the summer. Non-adventurous couples can avail themselves of the numerous guided trips on offer, which can take you out to see penguins and sea lions, gorge themselves on Patagonian cuisine at Bodegon Fuegino, or visit the hydrotherapy spa at the Albatros Hotel. Maybe you’ll be tempted to hop on a cruise to Antarctica from here? Maybe…
Argentina is a vast country, with a wide variety of climates and environments to choose from. With scenic mountain getaways lining the front of the Andes from north to south, there is surely a paradise waiting for the both of you to arrive and enjoy.
