Where to go in Argentina?
Argentina is a travellers’ paradise which spans across 5 distinct natural regions. This country will take you across glaciers, up mountains; from snow to desert to jungle. You could see ice blocks the size of houses falling from the Perito Moreno glaciers; chains of cascades spilling over 3km at Iguazú Falls; or you could simply relax and partner all your days with the best wine in the world from Mendoza’s Malbec vineyards.
Summer : December to February – This will be the peak season for Patagonia as the clear, sunny skies means that hiking through Tierra del Fuego, or anywhere else in Patagonia, would bring you some of the best sights in your life.
Spring : September to November – Cool, pleasant temperatures, with not too much rain. Ideal for visiting Buenos Aires, the North, and the Lake District.
Autumn : March to May – Grape harvesting season! Which can only mean it is the perfect time for an Argentina wine tour. Mendoza or Cafayate are excellent choices. (Autumn could also be a good time for Patagonia as all the colourful trees begin to change colour. Plus, low season means prices are much cheaper.)
Winter : June to August – Are you into skiing or snowboarding? Head to the northern Andean resorts for the best snow and ski slopes.
Exciting Buenos Aires is one of the best cities in South America! Admire the faded charm of its elegant European centre, then take the bus to visit La Boca. One of the best things to do in Buenos Aires is to visit a local milonga. Here, you can join a free tango class, or just watch the gorgeous locals dancing!
No Argentinian wine tour is complete without a visit to Mendoza! Mendoza has a huge range of tailor made tours to help you feel like a real wine connoisseur with the help of local experts. Hop on a bus or a bike and enjoy the scenery of Argentina’s key wine region, then sip away at some of Mendoza’s famous Malbec’s.
Salta & Cafayate
The dusty desert towns northwards of Argentina feels like the Wild, Wild West. Or even another planet! The cliffs and mountains around Cafayate are so red, while the terrains of Quebrada de Humahuaca are covered in streaks of vivid pinks and greens. In Puna, black and yellow volcanoes make a sharp contrast against the white salt desert. Even when you head into Salta, the region’s capital, you’ll find elegant colonial buildings wonderfully designed in almost as many bright colours as the natural landscape.
Patagonia is what postcards are made of, and it’s every hiker’s dream destination. You can easily find some of the best landscapes in the world here. Visit the Tierra del Fuego (“land of fire”) national park and be amazed by the majestic glaciers, mountains, and lakes. Further north in El Chaltén, you can trek through the beautiful snow-capped Fitz Roy mountains, or visit the world famous Perito Moreno glacier, where massive blocks of ice break off before your very eyes with a crash like thunder!
The mighty Iguazú Falls is made up of 275 waterfalls. It is also about twice the width and height of Niagara Falls. So when it comes to cascadas, it doesn’t get much better than this. Stretching over three km of waterfalls, and cascading with a deafening crash, you’re bound to get splashed while you admire this beauty.
If you’re a fan of steak, you’re in the right place. Argentina is known to have the best beef in the world! The Argentine Pampas are lush grass lands that surround Buenos Aires, the perfect place for millions of cattle to graze. Where there are loads of cows, you are bound to find gauchos – Argentina’s very own cowboys. They roam the pampas as horsemen and cowhands, living in ways which preserve much of their tradition, including their colourful clothes and lively music. All of which are a vital part of Argentina’s rich cultural heritage.
Antarctica is the driest, coldest, windiest place on earth, and what an incredible experience it would be to visit. At the very tip of Argentina is Ushuaia, the most southern city in the world. Boat tours to Antartica leave from here and typically last about one to two weeks. Antartica is breathtaking all year round, but December to March would be the best season for penguin, whale, and seal watching.
