Dramatic landscapes, cosmopolitan cities and lively culture

Argentina is a land of immense beauty and diversity.  There are desert like rocky landscapes, lakes of infinite shades of blue, stunning mountains, fertile vineyards and wild grasslands.   Wildlife includes whales, penguins, sea lions, howler monkeys, capybaras, caiman and anacondas.  You can have as active a holiday as you like in Argentina: cycling around the streets of Buenos Aires, ice trekking on a glacier, hiking in Los Glaciares national park; rafting or kayaking the many lakes and rivers.  It is also a great self-drive destination.  Highlights of Argentina include:

  • the classic European architecture, plazas and boulevards of Buenos Aires;
  • Iguazu Falls, one of the world’s most impressive natural wonders.  It lies on the border between Argentina and Brazil with a network of walking trails on the Argentinian side;
  • the wine capital of Mendoza where the micro climate is home to some magnificent wine growing estates; 
  • the north west of the country with its spectacular red desert earth landscapes;
  • Argentina’s Lake District in north Patagonia.  Stunning blue lakes with a backdrop of the snow topped Andes.  A great place for rafting, hiking, cycling, fishing and kayaking;
  • the Ibera wetlands, second in size only to Brazil’s Pantenal in South America.  Here you will find an abundance of wildlife which you can discover on horseback or by boat;
  • the Valdes peninsula, a haven for marine life where in season you can see Right whales and Magellanic penguins;
  • Argentinian Patagonia with its majestic peaks and sparkling lakes and further south, glacier filled valleys and lakes.  Here you can not only see glaciers up close but also experience some of the best hiking in the world in Los Glaciares national park.  
  • at the southernmost point of the continent, Tierra del Fuego, an archipelago shared with Chile and the jumping off point for expeditions to Antarctica.  

There is a huge range of accommodation in Argentina from simple cabins at the foot of a glacier to luxurious all inclusive lodges.  Holidays to Argentina are best tailored to the particular traveller, from accompanied private tours to self drive vacations or group holidays.  We have given some examples of trips below but please get in touch to discuss what we can put together for you.

Active Patagonia - Classic treks in Argentina and Chile

Low-altitude trekking through Patagonia's glaciated landscapes in Torres del Paine National Park (Chile) and the Fitz Roy massif in Los Glaciares National Park (Argentina) to discover the pinnacles of the region's natural scenery. Patagonia is a vast and scarcely-populated wilderness of outstanding natural beauty which straddles the Andean border of southern Chile and Argentina. On this holiday you will savour stretches of the 2 most famous hikes, the W Trek in Chile and the M Trek in Argentina. The hikes are quite challenging: walk for several hours over tricky terrain, sometimes steep. Good weather can’t be guaranteed in a region of fast-changing climatic conditions, but in the southern summer – November to March – you have a good chance of catching some clear, sunny days.

Self-drive Argentina - Hidden highlights of the north-west

Drive from Salta through wild canyons, Spanish colonial towns and vineyards in the Andean northwest, with some time in the capital Buenos Aires and a trip to the magnificent Iguazú Falls.The sunlit mountains and russet-red rockscapes of the provinces of Salta and Jujuy are a rugged canvas interwoven with white colonial churches, characterful markets and adobe villages. The scenery is especially lovely when shades of green, wildflowers and deep red carpets of chilis drying out in the high-altitude sunshine add vibrant glimpses of colour to the view through your windscreen. Throughout the year, there’s tasty regional food and wine to please your taste buds too.
