Argentina

Argentina, one of the most exciting, eclectic and scenic destinations in the world, is home to Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Patagonia, the Andes, the tango, ski resorts and wineries.

Become immersed in the urban art and culture of Buenos Aires, take in spectacular views of waterfalls, mountains and glaciers or hike through unforgettable national parks in this diverse and exciting South American destination.

Highlights

See and do:

  • Enjoy a tango show in Buenos Aires to experience the nostalgia of this iconic tradition
  • Explore the expansive system of cataracts at Iguazu Falls
  • Spend the night at a wine lodge in Mendoza
  • Hike the stunning mountain trails of Patagonia’s El Chalten, the Trekking Capital of Argentina

Pairs well with:

  • Chile and Brazil due to proximity and complementary experiences

Argentina arguably has the tastiest beef, the sexiest dance, the most immaculately dressed people, some of the cutest penguins and the most cosmopolitan city in South America.  Add to that the guachos and plains of Patagonia, world-class trout and salmon fishing, glacier skiing in the Andes and the European sophistication of the capital, Buenos Aires, and you have a destination unlike any other.

No trip to Argentina is complete without a visit to Buenos Aires. At minimum, visitors here should spend time touring some of the most traditional, colorful neighborhoods of La Boca, San Telmo, Congreso and Abasto. A classic tango show is also a must.

Away from the city, Iguazu Falls is a must see attraction.  This massive system of waterfalls is on the border of Argentina and Brazil, allowing unique viewing opportunities from both countries.  A trip to the Falls also means experiencing the stunning rainforest where jungle birds, coatimundi and even the occasional jaguar may be seen.

The Patagonia region of Argentina and Chile is remote, infinitely beautiful, exotic, vast, wild and untamable.  A trip to Patagonia should also be high on any visitor’s to-do list.  Here, guests can take in the stunning scenery while hiking the mountain trails of El Chalten, or visit Peninsula Valdez to witness (and snorkel with) elephant seals and penguins. These are only a few of the activities on offer in Patagonia, a destination of infinite beauty and intrigue.
