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.

Where to go in Argentina

The traveller to Argentina is spoilt for choice—the rhythms of Buenos Aires, the historical lanes of Cordoba, the peaks of Patagonia and the glaciers of the Tierra del Fuego all make for enticing holiday destinations with their own unique food, wine, music and culture.

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 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.
