A giant of South America, Argentina does everything in epic proportions. With a length of 3,650 km, the country spans from the steamy Tropic of Capricorn all the way to the edge of Antarctica.
From scorching salt plains and sunny vineyards to frosty glaciers and snow-capped mountains, Argentina encompasses an astonishing mix of terrains, natural wonders and thrilling travel experiences.
Begin in bewitching Buenos Aires, the perfect introduction to Argentina. One of the greatest cities in the world, Buenos Aires is a seductive cocktail of tango, football, leafy parklands, trendy cafes, beautiful museums and galleries, and historical barrios (neighbourhoods).
Head just outside the bustling city to discover the Pampas, a huge expanse of fertile lowlands, where gauchos work their estancias (a ranch or farm). Stay for a while, soaking up the peaceful countryside, learning about traditional gaucho farm life, and enjoying hearty, home-grown food.
For more delectable cuisine and the finest wines, it has to be Mendoza wine country. Known as the wine capital of Argentina, the Mendoza vineyards are truly world-class. You'll sample the specialities, learn about the ingenious irrigation methods of the Huarpe people, cycle the stunning vineyards, or simply lounge in the eternal sunshine with superb food and wine.
Head north, and you’ll discover a staggering diversity of landscapes, from the arid Andean highlands of the Northwest to the lush jungle of Puerto Iguazú. You can ascend through the clouds in the Northwest, uncovering breathtaking rock formations, ancient ruins, and charming towns like Salta, before heading to the dripping rainforest on the border with Brazil.
Here, you’ll see the mighty Iguazú Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world and a magnificent feat of nature, along with a cacophony of unique wildlife. You can spot capybaras, giant anteaters, jaguars, and yellow anacondas in the Iberá Wetlands, and even whales, seals and penguins in the far-flung Valdes Peninsula.
Plunge south, and you’ll be in another world again. Bejewelled in natural wonders, Argentina’s icy south boasts the adventure playground of the Lake District, the ethereal archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, and the dramatic peaks of famed Patagonia and the national parks.
You’ll stay in luxurious retreats at the foot of the Andes, witness the crackling spectacle of the Perito Moreno Glacier, marvel at the natural beauty of the Estancia Cristina and meet traditional Patagonian gauchos.
From El Calafate to Bariloche, you can go trekking, kayaking, rafting, sailing, horse riding, fishing, skiing and bird watching. Don’t forget to take a moment to soak up the brilliant sunsets on your private journey.
