Argentina Destination Guide
A modern, cosmopolitan country, Argentina is renowned for its love of tango, exceptional steaks and delicious wines. With spectacular landscapes stretching almost 3,500-kilometres from the tip of South America up to Bolivia and a fascinating history as one of South America's most cosmopolitan countries, Argentina is an intrepid traveller's paradise.
Whether you want to travel independently with a backpack or join an organised tour there are many fantastic Argentina holidays to choose from. While you're travelling this breathtaking country consider joining some of the many Argentina tours available to help you get the best possible experiences from your holiday.
Any decent Argentina Travel Guide can help give you an insight into the hidden gems and must-see destinations this vast country has to offer. Most international flights to Argentina land in Buenos Aires – a melting pot of Latin American charm, vibrant nightlife and friendly, fun-loving locals. Immerse yourself in the pulsating nightlife and enjoy a night out in the city that never sleeps. Home of the sultry tango, a visit here wouldn't be complete without enjoying a tango show and dinner. You can even sign up for a tango class to learn the national dance!
Don't miss getting soaked at the spectacular Iguazu Falls or exploring the stunning Lake District – an outdoor-lovers paradise with skiing, white water rafting, fishing and mountaineering. Stop to visit the Swiss-styled Bariloche, stunningly surrounded by mountains and lakes and depending on the season, ski, trek, raft or simply relax at one of the cosy cafes.
Another Argentinean gem is the almost magical Patagonia, the region at the southern end of South America. With some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world, do not neglect to visit this hauntingly beautiful landscape. From the snowy El Chaltén to the unmissable blue-hued Glaciar Perito Moreno in Los Glaciares National Park and spotting southern right whales from the beach in Puerto Madryn, Patagonia remains one of Argentina's best-kept secrets.
In the northwest you can explore the towns of Salta, Córdoba and the wine and nature paradise of Cafayate. When travelling this region you'll notice it starts to feel much less European and a lot more like its Andean neighbours Bolivia and Peru in terms of culture, landscape and way of life.
Argentina is heaven for lovers of good food and wine as Argentines pride themselves on their tender beef and delicious red wine. Walk the cobbled streets of San Telmo in the capital Buenos Aires to El Desnivel restaurant and squeeze into one of the small tables, before exploring the famous antiques fair. Or head to the wine region of Mendoza and visit some of the seemingly endless vineyards and wineries in the countryside.
With so much to offer it's hard not to fall madly in love with Argentina, so book your flights to this exciting destination today.
