Reasons to Visit
Argentina’s history of agriculture and in particular of rearing livestock has resulted in hundreds of estancias, or ranches, across the country that open their doors year round to visitors looking for a taste of the authentic cowboy life.
Straddling the Argentina and Brazil border it is the Argentine side that provides the opportunity for the detailed and close up views of some of the 276 waterfalls that make up Iguazú. The numerous vantage points and forested trails make for a wonderful experience of nature at her best.
Sample one of the world's best steaks! Enjoy in the open air on a traditional asado (barbecue) or in an elegant restaurant in a fabulous setting in the Argentine capital.
Each year between June and November the Southern Right Whales pass the Valdes peninsula offering spectacular opportunities to get close to these magnificent giants.
Some of the world’s most breathtaking glaciers have their home in Argentine Patagonia. They include the mighty Perito Moreno Glacier, 250 square kilometres in size, and the Upsala Glacier, rapidly retreating from Lake Argentino.
Argentina produces some of the world's best wines. For those with an interest in the wine making process we can offer excellent tours of large and small wineries around the city of Mendoza, or take you to more off the beaten track wineries high in the Andes around the northern town of Cafayate.
The Argentine tango originated in the working class quarters of Buenos Aires, brought to life by European immigrants whose diverse instruments, rhythms and steps came together to create what is today an enchanting and hypnotic dance enjoyed across the country.

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.
The Andes finally slide into the sea in an archipelago at the very tip of South America.
Tierra del Fuego conjures up images of frothing waves, howling gales and isolation, and whilst this is not entirely the case, the area certainly has a windy end-of-the-world feel. The heart of the island is the lively city of Ushuaia, whose colourful houses spill down from the sides of imposing snowy mountains before stopping abruptly at the shores of the icy Beagle Channel.
Ushuaia is the base for exploring attractions such as Lapataia National Park, the ‘Train to the End of the World’ in Tierra del Fuego National Park, seabird-watching on the Beagle Channel, and also a visit to the historic Estancia Harberton which was built by a British missionary on one of the farthest outposts of the continent.
Ushuaia is also the starting point for trips to Antarctica and the Cruceros Australis boats.
Stretching across both Chile and Argentina, Patagonia encompasses the vast cone of dramatic, rugged land where South America tapers into the frozen waters of the Southern Ocean. Find out about our tailor-made trips to Patagonia and the best places to visit.
