Argentina: The Pampas

Best known for being the home of the gauchos, Argentina’s famous baggy-trousered cowboys, the pampa stretches south and west from Buenos Aires. It’s a region of endless yawning plains, the fertile soils of which support succulent pasture for the country’s revered beef cattle, along with golden wheat and sunflowers. Pretty featureless apart from some attractive little towns, the flat pampa can be atmospheric in a morning mist or when reflecting an apricot sunset. The landscape is divided into estancias, or ranches, many of which nowadays welcome visitors. Along the Atlantic coast are a string of beach resorts, mostly catering for Latin American tourists.

What our experts say

Argentina is a huge country with diverse attractions, many of which involve travel to remote regions with outdoor activities, frequently energetic. Don't miss out on the chance of winding down in the warmth and within the welcoming doors of one of several estancias (ranches) on the pampas grasslands just a few hours drive from Buenos Aires on good roads. From there you can go straight to the airport to fly home, well rested.
