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.
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 arbours 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 Iguazú 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.
List of regions
Dance your way through Argentina’s vibrant capital, a city of leafy boulevards, sultry tango shows and proud, football-loving locals. Then, head out into the Pampas outside Buenos Aires to explore working cattle ranches and catch a glimpse of a bygone era.
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.
From the alpine splendour of the Lake District to the ends-of-the-earth austerity of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina’s southern regions are some of Latin America’s most spectacular.
Where the plains end and the high Andes begin you’ll find the sleepy town of Mendoza, gateway to Argentina’s most famous vineyards. Synonymous with malbec, the Mendoza region produces two-thirds of the country’s wine.
Explore the vestiges of Spanish rule in possibly Argentina’s most romantic city, Salta. Then, head into the hills to discover fine wines and rural, indigenous cultures amid the highlands bordering Bolivia and Chile.
