Argentina

Tailor-made Argentina holidays

Argentina is a country of seemingly endless variety, and to travel there is to discover thriving cities with world-class art and luxurious accommodations, and also small villages where traditional ways of life are celebrated. 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. There is something to entice both visitors whether they are city slickers, outdoorsy adventurers, epicurean aficionados or lovers of history.

Holidays to Argentina frequently start in the cosmopolitan capital on a tour of Buenos Aires, a heady mix of colour and elegance, and home to plenty of high-end restaurants, one-of-a-kind hotels, and more fashion and style than the eye can take in. This city is the beating heart of tango, a dance of sensuality that has lured many travellers into passionate whirls in the city's many dance halls and cafes.

The great natural playground of beautiful Argentinian Patagonia is another highlight. From Bariloche's setting of natural beauty at the base of Nahuel Huapi Lake to the glaciers of the Tierra del Fuego - the gateway to Antarctica - the wildness of Patagonia is an adventurous traveller's dream.

Famed for its wine, Argentina is home to many vineyards and legendary wine regions that you won't want to miss. Cafayate in the northern province of Salta reveals another side to the country, with its lush arbors producing Malbec wine that many holidaymakers find irresistible. To explore more of the country's vintages, travel to Mendoza, where the majority of Argentina's wine production is based - our wine tours are a fantastic way to sample the rich flavours of the best wineries, as we have hand-selected our favourite vineyards just for our travellers.

Elsewhere, visitors to Argentina can take in the placid waterways of the Lake District, admire rumbling waterfalls on a tour to Iguazu Falls and watch southern right whales pass by the beaches of Peninsula Valdés. Our travel consultants will tailor-make your trip just for you, to ensure you experience just the right mix of luxury accommodations, exciting outdoors adventures, and more.

Argentina is a land of great passion, where national football matches mesmerise a nation and the city streets rock and weave to the aphrodisiac effects of the tango. Its people live intensely – 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. Work with our expert team to build an itinerary to Argentina, and after your holiday you might just find you don't want the adventure to end.

Where to go in Argentina

Buenos Aires & The Pampas

The Pampas is a region of fertile lowlands that spreads across a huge area of eastern Argentina, much of Uruguay and the southern tip of Brazil. This vast plateau, one of South America's most impressive geographical features, is famed for its huge skies and the estancias - traditional argentine ran…

Iguazu Falls & the Northeast

The Iguazú Falls are arguably South America's most spectacular, a series of 275 tumbling cascades which plummet into the turbulent waters of the Iguazú River on the border of Argentina and Brazil.

Argentinian Patagonia

Patagonia is one of South America's most impressive and inspiring regions in which to travel. Pristine lakes and imposing glaciers, vast treeless plateaus and the towering snow-capped peaks of the Andes dominate, making Patagonia a real highlight to any Argentina holiday.

Mendoza

Mendoza is a lively city in the little visited western region of Argentina, known for its world-class wineries. The Mendoza Province, of which the city if the capital, is at the centre of the Argentina's booming wine trade, producing two-thirds of the country's wine.

Due to its vast size, there are huge differences in climatic conditions across the country, which are worth taking into account when planning a trip. Buenos Aires is best in spring (September to early-November) or autumn (March to May) when temperatures are mild. Summer in the capital can be stifling, with temperatures often hitting the high 30s. The shoulder seasons are also a good time to explore the northern and central provinces – autumnal leaves make Mendoza and the Lake District spectacular. Iguazú Falls benefits from the significant rainfall between during December, January and February, creating a spectacular display. However, outside of this time, you may find the hiking …

Top places to stay in Argentina

Sofitel Buenos Aires

Historic hotel

This Art Deco monument – the city’s first skyscraper – has towered over the historic heart of Buenos Aires since 1929, though to look at its polished marble floors, gleaming chandeliers and immaculate rooms, you’d be forgiven for thinking it had only opened yesterday.

Patios de Cafayate Wine Hotel, Cafayate

Historic hotel

With a beautiful location, a world-class spa, a raft of activities, more than a touch of colonial grandeur and access to some of Argentina’s most avant-garde wines, it’s hotels like this that are putting Cafayate and the north-west of Argentina firmly on the traveller’s map.

The Vines Resort & Spa, Mendoza

Contemporary resort

Combine rustic charm with boutique luxury in Argentina’s best-loved wine region.

Sheraton Iguazu Resort & Spa, Iguazu Falls

Contemporary hotel

No other hotel can match the Sheraton for views of arguably the world’s most spectacular waterfall. Throw in a stunning outdoor pool, tennis courts, a good gym, landscaped gardens and a respectable price tag, and the applause for this hotel can get as thunderous as Iguazu itself.
