Argentina

From the stunning Patagonian glaciers to desert landscapes, Argentina has it all. Starting at the northern border with Bolivia down to the southern end in Terra del Fuego, lies a vibrant, eclectic country, endowed with magnificent scenery which offers many experiences in just one country. You can find everything: the vastiness of the Andes, Buenos Aires’s charm, the aridity of the Puna region, the rich fauna of the South Atlantic, all within reach of a flight or some hours on the road. In addition, the Argentine cuisine also attracts tourists from all over the world. Parrillas (steak restaurants) are everywhere and will offer up any cut you can imagine. And if you're a fan of pizza and pasta, these Italian staples are ubiquitous as well.

About Argentina

The northwest of the country, also known as Puna, has a landscape that is different from you’ll see in other parts of Argentina. With views that remind you of the Atacama desert nearby, you can see giant cacti, arid mountains and experience a dry climate as well as meet indigenous people. But the regions major attraction is Tren a Las Nubes (Spanish for Train to the clouds), a train ride that will make you feel like you are walking in the Argentinian sky. The train follows a path that reaches 4200m altitude and passes through villages whilst crossing roads and bridges.
Not far away from Puna, in the northern region, is the city of Mendoza, one of the main destinations for wine lovers due to its many wineries and vineyards where you will be able to take walks or bike tours around this stunning scenery after tasting some of the region best wines. Climbers and hikers can go to the Southern Hemisphere's highest mountain: Mount Aconcagua. In the provincial park where the mountain is located, tourists can trek, hike and take horseback rides.
On the other side of the country, in the northeast, are the famous Iguaçu Falls, a set of about 275 waterfalls located between the Iguaçu National Park in Brazil and Iguazú National Park in Misiones, Argentina, forming 250 000 hectares of subtropical forest considered a Natural Heritage Site by Unesco.
More to the center is the capital Buenos Aires and its many cultural attractions. Cooking, tango, football are just some of the entertainment options in the area.
Head to the southeast and find Puerto Madryn and the Peninsula Valdez in a very sunny Patagonia. There, you can visit colonies of penguins, such as Punta Tombo and spot hundreds of sea lions in Punta Loma and, if you’re lucky, see some killer whales in the ocean, depending on the time of the year.
Cross the country and find a different landscape. The classic and cold Patagonia and its glaciers and snow capped mountains. Starting from the charming town of El Calafate, there is one of the few access points to Los Glaciares National Park, one of the largest in Argentina with more than 13mil km², with almost half of this area is covered by glaciers. The park is divided into three areas. In the southern part is the Perito Moreno Glacier, the most famous glacier of the region. There are several tour options, ranging from boat trips to hiking on the glacier.
In the central area of the park is the stunning scenery between the Argentino and Viedma lakes. Heading north, it’s Cerro Fitz Roy, which offers numerous option for trekking and climbing.
In the extreme south of the country, it is Ushuaia, also known as 'the end of the world' for being the southernmost city in the Americas. The city offers boat trips across the Beagle Channel, glaciers, trekking and climbing at Tierra Del Fuego National Park, in addition to serving as a starting point for expeditions to Antarctica.
