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.
