Awesome Argentina

Holidays in Argentina transport you to one of the most diverse countries in the world, boasting desert, mountains, glaciers, jungle and incredible wildlife. Like neighbouring Chile, Argentina stretches from the foot of South America right into the centre of the continent, thus spanning countless, ever-changing landscapes. In the far south is Tierra del Fuego, an area resembling an Antarctic land, while in the north the area around Misiones consists of jungle and waterfalls.

It is the variety within the country that makes holidays to Argentina so sought after, especially for lovers of the great outdoors. But you don’t have to appreciate the dramatic landscapes to get something out of an Argentinian break – the country is home to some of the world’s most vibrant cities, some of the best wines on the market and an endearing sense of contagious passion that cloaks the entire country with romantic charm.

Incredible Landscapes

Your holidays in Argentina begin with so many possibilities. In the far south of the country, visitors can experience a winter wonderland in the form of Patagonia. This stunning region consists of mountains, glaciers and lakes, and is found in its most beautiful form around Rio Negro and El Calafate. The latter is home to one of the world’s most iconic glaciers, the Perito Moreno Glacier. Switching to the far north and another world sits at your feet. The chills make way for the steaming jungle and the awe-inspiring Iguazu Falls found on the border with Brazil and Paraguay, while the Salar de Arizaro is the country’s most famous barren desert.

In the centre of the country you’ll encounter land dominated by pampas, inhabited by a bygone Gaucho culture, and the stunning Valdes Peninsula, visited by whales, sea lions and penguins. But it is in the bustling capital city where you’ll find the heart and soul of your Argentina holidays. Buenos Aires is a cauldron of vibrancy and passion, boasting immense historical and cultural significance, among a great culinary scene and several unique and characteristic neighbourhoods that encompass the diversity of this fascinating city.
