Travel to Argentina and discover amazing holidays – from buzzing Buenos Aires to the spires of Patagonia to tours of the Iguazu Falls.
Argentina is an enormous country and home to a great variety of terrains, from beach to high mountains to rainforest.
It is home to the highest Andean peak of Aconcagua, and counts vast rolling pampas, enormous glaciers and multi-coloured mountains among its attractions.
Choose from Estancias, boutique hotels, mountain lodges or camping for your adventure holiday.
Hikers will naturally be drawn to tours in Patagonia to trek Fitzroy National Park or perhaps the challenge of the Ice Cap of Patagonia.
Iguazu Falls are a big attraction, too – one of nature’s true wonders with hundreds of waterfalls crashing dramatically through the rainforest.
No holiday to Argentina is complete without a stop in Buenos Aires.
This is a truly vibrant, romantic and buzzing capital and invites you to soak up its atmosphere, with the pride and passion of its tango, fine wines and food.
Travel further afield and visit Peninsula Valdes to spot whales and orcas as well as sea lions, fossils and much more.
The remote north west of Salta is great for self-drives, vineyards and unusual rock formations, all with a unique Andean feel.
If wildlife is your thing, the Ibera wetlands close to Iguazu offers an abundance of marine, bird and land species along side comfortable lodges.
