Experience a luxury family volunteer vacation in Argentina. Few countries have such diversity, from the glaciers of Patagonia to the pampas, and jungle around Iguassu Falls. Buenos Aires is a fascinating city, and Mendoza is the perfect base for exploring the vineyards and sampling superb malbecs.
You can make a difference creating solar water heaters out of recycled soda bottles for families without hot water – so innovative!
So many highlights! Witness glacier ice calving into the sea. Take a bike ride through Buenos Aires – arguably South America’s most beautiful city. Sample wines in Mendoza, explore the lakes of Bariloche (ski there in winter), take the ‘train to the clouds’ in Salta, and be in awe of Iguassu Falls. You can even head to Antarctica!
Argentina is embracing sustainability, and the number of eco-luxe options are increasing; some of our favorites are:
Eco-Domes in Patagonia, Llao Llao in Bariloche, Los Cauquenes in Tierra del Fuego, Rosell Boher Lodge and Casa de Uco in Mendoza, and the sublime Awasi in Iguassu Falls.
You can make a lasting difference in the lives of a family with an incredibly innovative project that your family will love: creating solar powered heating out of used soda bottles and cans, thus providing a family with hot water who otherwise could not afford it.
Painting and school renovations are also on offer, near Buenos Aires.

How to help in Argentina
On your luxury family volunteer vacation in Argentina, you can provide hot water for a family by creating solar heating out of recycled soda bottles and cans – an amazing innovation!
Alternatively, or in addition, you can help renovate a low-income school just outside Buenos Aires.
With both projects, you and your family will experience meaningful interaction and engagement with the locals.
Creating a solar hot water heating system for a low-income family is not only brilliantly creative, it also markedly improves the lives of the family.
This is the ultimate “two birds with one stone”: communities get an innovative way to make up for the absence of an electrical grid, and it instills citizens with recycling practices that protect and enhance the surrounding environment.
Note – this is one popular example of how you can help in Argentina, and we delight in crafting trips to your exact preferences.
