Argentina

Argentina

Argentina covers a vast area and it offers visitors a fantastic array of sight seeing opportunities

From the heat of the northern areas down to the Antarctic coolness, Argentina has something for everyone – sumptuous steaks, rich Malbec wines, skilful football and passionate tango are just a few of the many attractions in this diverse destination.

Buenos Aires has so much to offer from tasty cuisine, legendary nightlife, fabulous shopping and beautiful architecture. You can visit the fascinating National History Museum, see the imposing 19th Century buildings, browse the San Telmo market and its charming handicrafts and visit the famous Recoleta Cemetery. Of course, no visit to the city would be complete without singing outside of Casa Rosada (Don’t Cry For Me Argentina) then watching talented dances engage in a mesmerising tango show.

Travel to the breathtaking Iguazu Falls on the Brazilian border. Surrounded by dense jungle landscapes, the thundering Iguazu Falls is the largest waterfall system in the world and stretch for over 3km. The Devil’s Throat is considered to be the most monumental waterfall in the cascades system. If you take the boat tour under the falls, you’re guaranteed to get wet through but it’s absolutely worth it!

Patagonia is home to Los Glaciares National Park which has extraordinary glacial lakes, verdant forests, Andean peaks and a large portion of the immense Patagonian Icefield. El Calafate is a popular area for visitors to this region as it’s a good choice of hotels and is a pleasant base from which you can get out and explore the glaciers.

Argentinian wine is becoming more and more popular and there are plenty of opportunities to take a tour of one of the many vineyards in the Mendoza region.

You don’t have to confine yourself to one destination either – consider a multi-centre holiday such as a stay in Argentina then Brazil, or travel onwards to Peru to follow the Inca Trail.

Leisure & Activities

Iguazu Falls
Situated on the border between Argentina and Brazil, the Iguazu Falls form part of the largest waterfalls system in the world. It consists of more than 270 waterfalls extending for one and a half miles through stunning lush forest. On the Argentinian side there are many trails that can be taken to reach the awe-inspiring Devil’s Throat Falls where there is a sensational view looking down at the Iguazu River, 80m below.

Punta Tombo
This is certainly something different to see! At Punta Tombo National Reserve you can witness the incredible sight of thousands of Megallanic Penguins as they come here to breed every year between September and March. Organised tours of the area can be booked through local agents.

Wine Tasting in Mendoza
Argentina’s largest and most important wine region, Mendoza, produces almost 70% of the country's wine. Wine tasting is becoming increasingly popular with tourists, and it’s easy to see why, with more than 1000 bodegas (wineries) to choose from. The area is certainly geared up for visitors with plenty of luxury spa hotels and restaurants serving exquisite food.
