Argentina, the second largest South American country, stretches from tropical jungle in the north to the cold Tierra del Fuego in the south. The country offers stunning landscapes – mountains, hills, rivers, lakes, ponds, and sea – and interesting nightlife and entertainment around the capital, Buenos Aires.
Some of our favourite places to visit in Argentina include:
A blend of historic and modern, the capital city is often called the ‘Paris of South America’. At Buenos Aires one can enjoy great nightlife and excellent food. A great way to end the day in the city is by enjoying dancing in one of the many tango clubs or milongas.
A World Heritage Site, these majestic waterfalls are easily the most breath-taking experiences in Argentina. Located along the border with Brazil, these waterfalls boast of Iguazu National Park on the Argentinian side and Iguaçu National Park on the Brazilian side. It is possible to get quite close to the falls thanks to easily accessible walkways and viewing platforms.
Mendoza is located in the centre-west of Argentina at the edge of the Andes. Mendoza is also an access point to two main wine valleys, Valle de Uco and Lujan de Cuyo. The region is home to some of the nation’s best restaurants serving finest steaks. There are a number of adventure activities on offer such as hiking & rafting.
El Calafate – This is the gateway to the Glaciers. One can explore Perito Moreno Glacier, enjoy ice trekking, kayaking and cruising. One can also explore hidden ranches, which can only be reached by boat, and hike among its canyons.
Southernmost city in the world, it is gateway to the Antarctica. Explore the Patagonian woods, navigate the Beagle Channel, fish your own king crab for lunch!
A gateway to the whales and penguins, this is wildlife paradise. It is one of the most vibrant cities in Patagonia with a beautiful coastal avenue overlooking Nuevo Gulf. Founded in mid-19th century by Welsh immigrants, the region is greatly influenced by Welsh culture and heritage.
Bariloche & Lake District
Land of lakes and mountains, the region is ideal for hiking, kayaking, sailing, and glamping. One of the largest ski resorts in South America, Cerro Catedral includes more than 100km of ski terrain and is particularly popular for its stunning views over Nahuel Huapi.
The Pampas, San Antonio de Areco
This is the domain of the gauchos, Argentina’s famous baggy-trousered cowboys. The Pampas are the fertile South American lowlands that stretch south and west from Buenos Aires. The land is extremely fertile and supports pasture for the country’s cattle industry, along with golden wheat and sunflowers.
