Stretching nearly 3,500-kilometres to the very southern tip of South America is the land of the tango, gauchos, polo, Malbec, glacier-topped mountains and perfectly grilled steaks.
Enjoy the splendour of Buenos Aires with its cosmopolitan atmosphere and the night-owl energy of the passionate locals. Days are for strolling through pretty green parks, popping into art galleries, shopping for designer clothes and lingering over espresso at cafés. And nights roll over into morning in stylish bistros, bars and sultry tango ballrooms.
The perfect partner to Argentina’s cultural heritage is its natural beauty, stretching from desert canyons to arctic glaciers. In the Andean foothills, stay in luxurious estancias in the pampas and swim in fresh lakes and trout-filled rivers in Bariloche. Farther west, feast on the gastronomy and award-winning wines of sunny Mendoza, sample the stunning scenery of the Lake District and explore the rolling countryside of Luján de Cuyo on bike or on horseback. Along the Brazilian border, marvel at the power, size and sheer noise of Iguazú Falls. Outside stunning Salta, traverse the mythical valleys, salt flats and ancient settlements of the Incas. Experience the majestic beauty and glacier-carved landscapes of Patagonia as you sail around monumental icebergs floating in lakes populated by colonies of penguins.
