Argentina tailor-made holidays

Argentina is a country of seemingly endless variety. The world's eighth largest country, it stretches from its tropical north to a glacial south, the mountainous Andes in the west to the sweeping Atlantic coastline in the east.

This is a land of great passion, where national football matches mesmerize a nation and the city streets rock and weave to the aphrodisiac effects of the tango. Argentines live intensely - perhaps a product of a rocky political past, or perhaps because they don't dare relax for too long, knowing the abundant delights that sit on their doorstep that would take a lifetime to explore.

Argentina luxury holidays typically start in the cosmopolitan capital of Buenos Aires, a heady mix of Havana's colour and Paris's elegance. The great natural playground of beautiful Patagonia is another Argentina travel highlight, while the vineyards of Cafayate in the northern province of Salta reveal another side to the country.

Elsewhere, visitors to Argentina can take in the placid waterways of the Lake District, admire rumbling Iguazu Falls and watch southern right whales pass by the beaches of Peninsula Valdés.
