Argentina - Land of Contrasts
Few can resist the allure of Buenos Aires, dubbed the Paris of South America, and where you go from here is a wonderful choice to make. Head to Salta and the northwest for enchanting villages and spectacularly rugged scenery or head south to Mendoza and the famed wine region. Further south is Bariloche and Argentina's stunning Lake District whilst El Calafate serves as the ideal base from which to explore the Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. And you can't get much further south than the scenic city of Ushuaia and the stunning Tierra del Fuego National Park.
Recommended Places to Visit in Argentina
From the seductive European-influenced cities to the gorgeous vineyards of the central regions with plenty of natural wonders at either end of the country, Argentina has more than enough reasons to make it your next holiday destination and here are our favourite reasons.
Reminiscent of a Swiss ski town, Bariloche has the perfect combination of dramatic mountains, dazzling blue lakes and a thriving town, making it one of the top destinations in all of Argentina. Snow sports aficionados will find no lack of things to occupy themselves with during the winter season, while nature lovers can enjoy the plethora of leafy hiking routes available once the weather heats up. For some less strenuous activity, the local chocolate museum is a great way to spend an afternoon.
Capital city of the land that gave us tango and steak, Buenos Aires is a modern metropolis filled with European-style architecture and a distinctly Latin charm, which is utterly unforgettable. Visitors should explore this incredible city on foot in order to make the most of everything it has to offer including the historical Obelisco in the Plaza de la Republica. There are also dozens of different areas where shopaholics can get their fix, all of which range dramatically in style and price.
These powerful and majestic waterfalls, which stretch out through Argentina and Brazil, should not be missed by anyone passing through South America. Few places on earth can compete with Iguazu Falls with regards to showing, to its fullest extent, just what Mother Nature is capable of. There are plenty of lookout points from which visitors can get the perfect shot of the cascades. Alternatively, the falls can also be viewed by helicopter.
As the number one region for wine in all of South America, Mendoza draws in visitors from all over the world. However, this vineyard-filled region has a lot more to offer than just Malbec with fly fishing, horseback tours and excursions sampling the local gourmet cuisine just a few of the activities available to those who venture here. With snow-capped mountains in the background and colourful fields on the outskirts, it’s hard to find a reason not to visit Mendoza.
Literally translated at ‘Land of the Fire’, Tierra del Fuego spans through Argentina and Chile and is truly a land before time. In 1960 a portion of the area was declared a National Park and now has several different paths and trails, varying in difficulty, which visitors can follow in order to explore this rugged landscape in more depth. Most who choose to visit this region use the town of Ushuaia, the world’s most southern city, as a base.
