Argentina HOLIDAYS

Argentina is one of the outstanding countries of the continent and an ideal place for a holiday in South America.  It is one of the most diverse countries, so whether it is a holiday in Argentina or an Argentina honeymoon, you will find what you are looking for.

This is a place where its people bring the country to life, gentle and accepting they are wonderful hosts. A holiday to Argentina offers such an array of experiences from walking on glaciers to visiting pre Inca ruins to horse riding across the Andes that you will not be disappointed. On top of this, their food is superb and if you throw in one of their great bottles of wine, you have the perfect holiday destination.

Our Favourite Things To Do In Argentina

TANGO

The best place to experience the tango is in Buenos Aires.  Head down to Plaza Dorrego in San Telmo on a weekend and you are sure to see them tangoing on the streets. For a proper show, find somewhere small and intimate and we know just the place with a live band too!

WINE TASTING

Argentina has emerged as one of the great wine producers of the world.  The valleys surrounding Mendoza are the best place for this and you can spend days sampling wines from not just the major brands, but also the smaller independent vineyards

GLACIAL TREKKING

For us, walking on a glacier is one of the major highlights of the country. To walk across ice which has been compressed over thousands of years gives it a very unique colour.  It is one of those experiences which you carry with you for life

REMOTE PEAKS

In the far south of Argentina the Andes begin to drop in height, exposing rock which is susceptible to erosion. What is left is bizarre shaped peaks surrounded by lakes and glaciers. The Fitzroy National Park offers some of the most intense and rewarding walks in the country

HORSE RIDING

No-where else in the world does horse riding as well as Argentina.  The Gauchos have almost become mythical and to be part of their world is an incredible experience.  However, to experience something authentic you need to get in touch as a lot is just for show.

WATERFALLS

No visit to Argentina is going to be complete without visiting the Iguazu Falls; 270 waterfalls in a 1 square mile area, walkways at various levels on both sides of the falls, speedboat rides to see them from below & helicopters from above, train rides, wildlife and all surrounded by pristine jungle

Map of Argentina

Having just come back from Argentina and Chile, we can thoroughly recommend Latin Odyssey. They were very helpful at the planning stage with advice re locations, best ways of seeing things etc and organised our trip (with guides where necessary) so that everything went smoothly. It meant that we had an amazing holiday

An Overview Of Argentina

Any visit begins with the capital, Buenos Aires.  This is unquestionably the best city in the Americas and is known as the ‘Paris of South America’.  It is a cosmopolitan city with European influences and its colourful districts are ideal for exploring on foot.  It is also the gateway to the Pampas, renowned for the ‘gauchos’ or cowboys, and where you have the opportunity to stay on one of the many estancias and sample ranch life.

To the north is the thunderous Iguazu falls, a collection of over 280 falls, which drop over red rock plateaux’s surrounded by rainforest, they are the best waterfalls in the world.

The remote northwest offers a wonderful range of landscapes; high plateaux’s, wide mesmerizing valleys, vineyards, salt flats and the highest train ride in the world.
To the east, lies the Atlantic, and Peninsular Valdes, a haven for penguins, whales and marine life.

Argentina’s greatest asset though is the magnificent Andes range which divides Argentina from Chile. This is an area of contrasts, where enormous glaciers and colourful lakes merge, forests and salt flats collide and where Patagonia begins and ends.

Patagonia is a windswept region of dissolute beauty and the gem of the country. It is an immense area, covering nearly a third of the country but home to only 6% of the population. For walking and trekking the less visited national park of Fitzroy is just magical whilst and the southern most town in the world, Ushuaia is where the Andes meet the ocean and is the gateway to Antarctica.
