Comprising most of the southern half of South America, Argentina is home to a vast and diverse natural wonderland. From sun-drenched beaches to polar ice caps; colossal mountain ranges to rolling pampa plains; subtropical rainforests to rusty-hued deserts; there’s a new setting for every moment on an Argentina holiday.

Argentina’s landscape offers its fair share of natural wonders. Contemplate the thundering Iguazú Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world, encompassing 275 cascades and stretching 3km. Explore spectacular Los Glaciares National Park, home to immense glaciers, dramatic icefalls and turquoise lakes. Head to the Peninsula Valdes coastline to spot great whales, penguins and sea lions basking on the shore.

Travel by day and tango by night

Expect to be swept away by the intoxicating Latin spirit on your holiday to Argentina. With a rich culture of tango, premium red wine and grass-fed beef, there’s much to enjoy here.

Pulsating Buenos Aires is the city that takes centre stage in Argentina, but there are other towns more than worth a visit - not least Mendoza, Salta and Bariloche. Nestled at the eastern foothills of the Andes, Mendoza is world-famous for its red wines, and its vineyards are set against a stunning backdrop of rugged Andean mountains. When you’re not touring the vineyards, there are numerous boutique cafes, leafy plazas and bustling markets to explore.

For a real adventure, consider an Argentina multi centre holiday, where you can truly make the most of all Argentina has to offer. Or, delve further, and twin your Argentina exploration with a stay in Brazil, the land of jungle and beaches. Alternatively, continue your travels in Peru, following the Inca trail to the promise of the mesmerising Machu Picchu ruins. The world is your oyster, and we’re here to help you explore it.

The Peninsula Valdes

As one of Argentina's wildlife highlights, be sure to include a visit to the Peninsula Valdes during your trip.

Red Palace Buenos Aires

The Plaza de Mayo

Tucked away in the centre of Buenos Aires, the grassy, bustling Plaza de Mayo is filled with history, having served as the hotspot for many of Argentina's most violent protests during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Visit Buenos Aires

Striking the perfect balance between a distinctly European and decidedly Argentine flavour, Buenos Aires has rightly earned the nickname as the 'Paris of South America' and it's not hard to see why.

Best time to visit Argentina

Argentina can be visited year-round, and the best time to go depends on the country you hope to visit. Buenos Aires is very pleasant during the months of June and July when temperatures drop to a cool 12˚C. Patagonia is most accessible during the warmer season from December to March when temperatures can reach 29˚C.

“Go on a tango tour or try out a tango lesson while you’re in Argentina. Tango is the most popular Argentinian past-time and the locals are mad about it - this is the best way to really get a sense of the country and its culture!”

"The subway, or subte, is the easiest way to get around Buenos Aires and a tourist bus operates daily. Alternatively, local buses, known as colectivos or micros, are handy for short journeys. However, they are somewhat notorious for their high speeds. Taxis are inexpensive, so provide a good alternative."
Jessica

“Where the Argentinian peso has nosedived in recent years, you can eat out at the classiest restaurants for great value. A huge T-bone steak at one of Buenos Aires’ top restaurants costs only £19, compared with around £70 in a comparable London restaurant. Likewise, a premium bottle of red wine in a restaurant is just £15, compared to £46.”

General Manager

Local Cuisine

From street food stalls to gourmet restaurants, Argentina is a foodie haven. There are many beautiful, hidden taverns in the capital city, Buenos Aires - make sure you inquire at your hotel for insider tips on where to find them.

Empanadas

Empanadas are small pies, in a croissant-like shape. There are various different meat and cheese fillings and they range in size and style. Argentina is well-known for having the world’s best empanadas and many regions have special recipes that have been passed down generations.

Asado

BBQs are a traditional fare in Argentina, and family and friends will often gather at the weekends to share a meal of grilled deliciousness. A typical Asado will see heaped platters of choripan (chorizo) and morcilla (Argentinian sausage) and great piles of meat, cooked on the parrillas (grills) on a slow heat for hours.

 

La llama de la barbacoa

A more rustic and earthy alternative to beef (also hugely popular in Argentina), llama is a speciality of Argentina’s northwest. It can be sampled in empanadas, stews or as a standalone steak.

Wine

Argentina is the fifth largest wine producing country in the world and makes some truly outstanding wines. From silky Malbecs to fruity Chardonnays, there’s plenty to savour and enjoy.
