Holidays to Argentina

Intense, diverse and sultry, Argentina will sweep you off your feet and land you in a whirlwind of vibrant cities, dazzling icy landscapes, cascading waterfalls, spinning tango dance clubs, platefuls of steak, jubilant horse rides and an outpour of Malbec wine. There's so much to see and do in this fascinating, passionate and varied country. 

The landscapes in Argentina are absolutely incredible, and so diverse. In the north you have the rugged Argentine Andes where you'll find the lush flatlands of La Pampa, and the Spanish-style provincial capital of Salta. To the west is the beautiful Lake District with towns like Bariloche, famed for its alpine-style architecture and excellent skiing, and laid-back Villa La Angostura - one of the prettiest towns in the region. In the south you've got the Los Glaciers National Park, home to the biggest ice caps in the world outside of Antartica and Greenland, easily accessed from El Calafate and El Chaltén. Last but not least is the spectacular Iguazú Falls, with 275 waterfalls cascading down over Brazil and Argentina, creating a stunning shimmering wall of water.

Of course, a trip to Argentina wouldn't be complete without a visit to Buenos Aires, the country's capital and hub for art, food, tango shows and locals determined to keep the fun going all night long. Round off your trip in Mendoza where you can sample the famous Malbec wineries, and tour the incredible contemporary art scene.
