@jumpersforgoalposts – a previous poster was thinking of a week in Calafate which seemed a lot and the three full days you suggest seems more sensible but personally I wouldn’t be going there in August. It will still be very cold, possibly rainy/sleety and generally a bit grey so the landscapes won’t be at their best and it complicates the packing! It would also be the wrong time of year for Bariloche/lake district. However, this really depends what you want to do and see. At that time of year, the northwest, potentially flying to Salta from Iguazú (to save one domestic flight and a lot of time) to see Salta/Molinos/Cafayate – it will involve a fair bit of driving, some being on unmade roads unless you choose to base yourself in one place, but it will be much warmer, fantastic and varied landscapes, unspoilt, good hiking/walking and great wines and as it is really more focussed on domestic tourism, cheaper.
