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.

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.

    Most memorable experiences: "Perito Moreno glacier - my photos don't come near to conveying its magnificence! Bus over the Andes. More comfortable than a flight and the mountains are truly awesome (was a long day, however,at around 8hrs 30mins.)"

    "Iguazu Fall were spectacular - made Niagara Falls look like a dripping tap. The bus journey from Mendoza over the Andes to Santiago was equally excellent. Buenos Aires was an exciting city, in which the area around La Boca was was so charismatic - could have stayed there for days!"

    "Trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier, seeing Condors in the Andes, crossing the Andes by boat and bus, the whole visit to Ushuaia. This was probably the most varied and exciting trip we have done in recent years, which worked almost perfectly logistically and in terms of time spent in each location."

    "The estancia stay was wonderful, and a really special place to spend my 30th birthday - I was thoroughly spoilt! Our trip to Quebrada de Humahuaca with Juan was also fantastic. It was also great to see the diversity of the country, and the beautiful Iguazu falls."

    Beautiful country

    "The weather was very kind to us and every glacier, view and the falls were stunningly beautiful. I loved being in the hotel at Bariloche sitting on the terrace overlooking the lake. I even thoroughly enjoyed travelling through the Enchanted Valley from Nequen to Bariloche because the airport had been closed. It is impossible for us to put one memorable moment as every part of Argentina that we went to was beautiful.”

    Real Argentina
