In the northwest, close to the Bolivian border, you will find incredible desert scenery and the fabulous city of Salta, which boasts amazing colonial architecture and some tantalising restaurants. Additionally the surrounding province offers a wealth of experiences such as wine tasting in Cafayate; Quebrada de Humahuaca – the beautiful fourteen-coloured mountain; and La Garganta del Diablo (The Devil’s Throat).
The Iguazu Falls sit on the border of Argentina and Brazil and make up the largest waterfall system in the world. The thunderous noise of these jaw-dropping falls will stay in your memory forever. In addition to the falls, the surrounding rainforest is teeming with incredible flora and fauna to be discovered.
To the south is the beautiful Mendoza and the Argentinian wine country, famous for its Malbec and other tasty wines. The world-class wineries here provide the opportunity to meet winemakers, tour the estates, and watch the wine making process. The city of Mendoza has many fantastic eateries and a fun night life.
The variety that Buenos Aires has to offer is phenomenal and you will never feel like you’ve had enough time here to explore it fully. Whether enjoying a live game of ‘futbol’, dancing the tango in a street market, or taking in the history and architecture you are bound to fall in love with the capital. A trip out of the city to the Pampas region, home of the Argentinian cowboys known as gauchos, is also highly recommended. Wonderful towns such as San Antonio De Areco offer a great base to explore the Pampas.
Travel further south, and you reach the iconic Patagonia region. An incredible way to experience Patagonia is by driving this section of the Ruta 40. Alternatively you can fly between the cities as the distances are vast. In northern Patagonia is the town of Bariloche within the beautiful lake district. As you head south there is the fascinating Welsh town of Trevelin. Continuing on the Ruta 40 you will reach the Perito Merino glacier. The sound and sight of chunks of ice breaking off this glacier is awesome, and no trip to Argentina is complete without a visit here. If you have the time, a visit to El Chalten is an exceptional addition to your itinerary. From here you can trek to Fitzroy Mountain and Cerro Torre, which are really accessible walks offering breathtakingly stunning views.
If your passion is wildlife, you can’t miss out on Peninsula Valdes. This area is bursting with sea life, including the Southern Right Whale, sea lions and the largest Magellanic Penguin colony in the Americas. Between late September and early April you may even be lucky enough to see Orcas.
Finally, at the end of the continent is the town of Ushuaia, perched in a dramatic position overlooking the Beagle Channel. This is an interesting place and much more cosmopolitan than one might imagine considering its remote location at the end of the world. From Ushuaia you can take short boat trips to see local wildlife such as penguins and sea lions, and trips to Tierra Del Fuego National Park. Additionally, most cruises to Antarctica depart from Ushuaia, which is a massive bucket list trip to make.
Argentina has something for everyone. Young or old, a 2 week break or a month-long adventure, you will not regret choosing this incredible country for your next trip. On one of Destination Seekers bespoke itineraries, everyday will be astounding.
