Located in the foothills of the Andes, Mendoza is Argentina's premier wine-producing area. In summer the climate is hot and humid, but the shady, tree-lined streets and gurgling fountains of its plazas help to keep the temperature down, as does adopting the 'Mendocino' way of life by taking a siesta during the hottest part of the day.
Two of the main industries of Mendoza area are olive oil production and, of course, wine making. The surrounding region is the largest wine producing area in Latin America. As such, Mendoza is one of nine cities worldwide in the network of Great Capitals of Wine, and is an emerging wine tourism destination and base for exploring the hundreds of wineries in the region. Mendoza has several museums, including The National Wine Museum, focusing on the history of wine-making in the area, 17 km southeast of Mendoza in Maipú. The The National Grape Harvest Festival occurs in early March each year.
The city is a frequent stopover for climbers on their way to Aconcagua (the highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere) and for adventure travellers interested in mountaineering, hiking, horseback riding, rafting, and other sports. In the winter, skiers come to the city for its easy access to the Andes.

Thank you for this wonderful holiday. The experience has remained fresh in our memories. The outstanding scenery was matched by our guides' quality whose knowledge and care never failed to impress.
Thank you for all times and effort that went into our fabulous holiday. No complaints. Except that 4 weeks is unfortunately too short for visit these places.
Our tour hosts were without fail. They were friendly, warm, informed, open and shared the love of their country. We recommend all of them highly, especially Eugenio in Rio and Gaby in Bariloche.
