Argentina is a vast country where so much of the natural landscape is on a huge scale, ranging from sub-tropical jungle and desert canyons to frozen ice-caps. The tumultuous waterfalls cradled in rainforest at Iguazú are probably the most dramatic and awe-inspiring on the planet, attracting visitors from all over the world.

Beyond the infinite skies, shimmering glaciers and horizon-bending pampas, this is the cradle of the tango and a producer of fine wines. Its capital, Buenos Aires, is one of Latin America’s most stylish; its people, cultured and welcoming. This heritage, forged by forged by waves of immigrants (including Italians, English and Welsh), is unique.

Argentina’s tourist infrastructure is comprehensive: the accommodation, transport and excursions are of a high standard. There’s a well organised network of national parks for adventure in the open air and the profusion of wildlife is striking – mammals, reptiles and birds abound in marshes, rainforest, windswept plains and along the Patagonian coast.

Our insider tips for Argentina

Marvelling upwards at the triple skyscraper-high Iguazú Falls from a boat trip to where the foaming water crashes into the river below: warning, you’ll get wet, but a more exhilarating experience is hard to find.

Savouring a slab of sirloin and bottle of rich red Malbec on a sunny patio in the revitalised port district of Puerto Madero in the heart of Buenos Aires.

Hiking the trails at Fitz Roy in Patagonia. Few regions anywhere in the world of glaciated mountains and crystal lagoons reward the walker with so many incredible panoramic views.

Exploring the richest area of Argentina’s native heritage in the rainbow canyons of the country’s Andean northwest, its modest adobe indigenous villages complementing the gracious baroque of a necklet of colonial towns.

What our experts say

Argentina is  a country of so many contradictions. Not only the extremes of climate and landscapes, but also in the character of the people: passion is a cliché but well applied to Argentines, who have an opinion on everything. In my experience, at the same time as stating their views forcefully they are some of the kindest and most welcoming and communicative people in Latin America, and entertaining to boot.
