Advice on destinations in northern Argentina?
Here is a question to those familiar with South American riding.
I am researching interesting areas to ride, most likely in northeastern Argentina. We have already toured Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, therefore now I am thinking about the "other end".
The problem is that our limited schedule allows only for about one week off. Therefore, I am constrained to a destination that can be covered in a 6-7 day loop. Also, the loop needs to originate in an easy-to-fly-in major city, such as Buenos Aires or Santiago.
My current thought is to make a 1500-2000 km loop out of Buenos Aires, going northeast, possibly toward Iguazu Falls, maybe into Brazil.
Is this a reasonable direction for a ride? Is the terrain interesting? Spectacular views?
Or is there a lot of boring flatland and farmland in that corner of the country?
Would you ride there, or would you not even consider it when compared with the Andean routes? (Northern Chile, Bolivia, NW Argentina?)
What are the climatic considerations? We are thinking about going there during the southern winter (sometime between July and September) - temperatures seem OK, but is a lot of rain to be expected?
Thanks in advance.
