Close encounters with whales and sea lions. The violent sensuality of the tango. Trekking across glaciers or tasting wine in the sun of hacienda-style wineries. Will anywhere else prepare you for the magic of Argentina?
Almost the same size as India - and nearly as diverse – Argentina offers you an unrivalled richness of experience.
If you’re a lover of nightlife, Paul Webb, one of our Argentina experts, can arrange a tailor-made itinerary that encourages you to revel in the exuberance of Buenos Aires, where you can dine on the world’s best steak (Paul recommends Cabanas las Lilas) accompanied by classic local wines, in stylish restaurants overlooking the River Plate.
But if you’re a lover of wildlife, Paul has a special treat for you. Your tailored holiday can include a visit to the 80 metre high Iguacu Falls, set in a stunning National Park. On the western edge of the country is Bariloche – nestling between the beautiful Nahuel Huapi Lake and the foothills of the Andes. Further north is a breath-taking desert, eerie salt flats and beautiful lakes. Journey west and you’ll be amongst the spectacular scenery of the Andes. Travel south and discover El Calafate, gateway to Los Glaciares National Park and the spectacular Perito Moreno glacier. Tour the Peninsula Valdes between September and April and you could encounter Southern Right whales, sea elephants and sea lions. Not to mention vast numbers of penguins.
The Spanish expected to discover silver in Argentina. You can expect to find a gem.
