Visit Argentina and experience the beauty of the Lake District and the remoteness of Patagonia. Explore Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital or enjoy a private tour of Mendoza.
A pretty town with an Alpine feel and a thriving chocolate industry, Bariloche (San Carlos de Bariloche) is a good base for explorations around the Argentinian Lake District.
The capital of Argentina is one of the world’s great urban experiences: a place of stylish people and buildings, wide boulevards and leafy parks, poignant history, gastronomic delights, tango in the streets and extravagant arts and architecture.
At the centre of a large wine producing region, Cafayate is in the foothills of the Andes, around 1,600 meters above sea level.
In the heart of Argentina lies the modern city of Córdoba, which is surrounded by some spectacular mountainous landscapes.
El Calafate is the gateway to the Los Glaciares National Park and the mighty Perito Moreno and Upsala glaciers.
El Chalten is a small town that now acts as a base for the climbing and hiking visitors to the Fitzroy Massif.
Esteros de Iberá
The undoubted highlight of the Corrientes province, Esteros de Ibera is a protected wetland area which rivals the Pantanal in Brazil for wildlife spotting opportunities.
Surely the most dramatic waterfalls in the world are those which tumble over the cliffs at the border of Argentina and Brazil. It is said that Argentina provides the show and Brazil enjoys the view of Iguazu Falls, and certainly the more panoramic walkways are on the Brazilian side.
Argentina’s Lake District is a beautiful area of glacial lakes, emerald forests and extinct snow-capped volcanoes. The two main centres are San Martin de los Andes in the north and Bariloche in the south.
Where Argentina rears up into the foothills of the Andes, lively Mendoza is at the heart of the self-styled ‘land of sunshine and wine’. Spread across the valley of the river of the same name, Mendoza is a pleasant city with wide tree-lined streets, plazas and avenues.
Situated at the most southerly bit of the Argentine mainland, the wind is often howling across the steppe as sheep and guanacos graze with condors and caracaras overhead.
This wild and treeless tag of land, loosely linked to the mainland and reaching out into the South Atlantic, is a UNESCO-registered nature reserve that is home to a large variety of wildlife.
Perito Moreno & the Glacier National Park
The magnificent centrepiece of the Glacier National Park is the creaking hulk of ice that is the Perito Moreno glacier, other glaciers worth a visit are those of Upsala and Onelli. Another face of the Glacier National Park is the granite peaks of the Mount Fitz Roy.
A tiny village with an incredible setting right at the foot of the famous Hill of Seven Colours, Purmamarca is a charmingly sleepy little place.
Salta & The Northwest
This far-flung corner of Argentina presents the traveller with a magnificent lunar landscape of ochre deserts dotted with cacti and colourful gorges striped with an array of hues. The historic city of Salta is the base for most explorations of the Northwest, and offers striking architecture and calm, leafy plazas.
San Martin de los Andes
Built in a valley on the shore of the beautiful Lago Lacar, San Martin de los Andes is the largest town in the northern lake district, boasting a theatre, cinema and plenty of shops and restaurants.
Ushuaia & Tierra del Fuego
The towering Andes finally slide into the sea at the very tip of South America in a windswept archipelago known as Tierra del Fuego. At the heart of the island is the lively city of Ushuaia, which acts as the perfect base and resting point for excursions across the Beagle Channel and journeys to Antarctica.
