A holiday to Argentina offers dramatic glaciers, vast drum-flat pampas, remarkable wetlands, and tango temptations, it holds all of its visitors in awe. From the spectacular thunderous waterfalls of Iguazu Falls and wineries of Mendoza, to the snow-capped Andes and cultural cocktail that is Buenos Aires, this is South America at its coolest.
Set at the southernmost tip of South America, a holiday to Argentina has plenty to blow you away beyond its obsession with football, politics, steak cuts, and Evita. Studded with cool cosmopolitan cities and spectacular natural beauty, the potential for adventure here is limitless.
For faded elegance and glamourous modernism, bask in the beauty of Buenos Aires. Mixing European sophistication with distinct Latin passion, Argentina’s fun and fast capital is abuzz with glitzy malls, avant-garde museums, trendy fusion restaurants, barrios, and milongas (tango salons). Shop for haute couture in Recoleta, marvel at the French baroque interiors at Teatro Colón, and explore the legend that is Eva Perón at Casa Rosada; the iconic presidential palace with its famous balcony, and also at her much-visited grave site in Recoleta Cemetery.
But it’s not just Buenos Aires that is an assault for the senses. Thrill seekers can charge down wild rapids on the River Manso, whale-watch in Puerto Madryn, enjoy penguin, seal and whale encounters at Peninsula Valdés, and see nature at its most powerful at Iguazú Falls - one of the world’s most awe-inspiring sights. Other highlights include ice-trekking the mighty Perito Moreno Glacier, spotting wildlife at the Ibera Wetlands, and sailing the Beagle Channel through Tierra del Fuego National Park in Patagonia.
For more Argentine fabulousness, learn about country living in the Pampas, home to the legendary Argentine gaucho cowboy, and venture to the north-westerly provinces for surreal natural beauty. Most alluring is Salta for its Andean peaks, vineyards, giant rock formations, giant cacti and crystalline salt flats, Jujuy for its authentic vibe, and Purmamarca for its postcard-perfect buildings and surrounding landscape. For wine and wonder, journey to Mendoza in the foothills of the Andes and discover some of the world’s most magnificent vineyards, wineries, and wine-producing estates.
