Argentina Holidays

Be swept away by the infectious Latin spirit in Argentina, home to sultry tango, icy landscapes and the Andean peaks.

Visit characterful Buenos Aires, head to Los Glaciers National Park and see the world-famous Iguazu Falls for breathtaking vistas and plenty of photo-taking opportunities. At the eastern foothills of the Andes, you'll find Mendoza; a panoramic heaven that's famous for its wine, its nightlife and its atmospheric markets. Plus, you'll have the chance to spot whales, sea lions and penguins along the Peninsula Valdes' coastline.

Twin your stay with Brazil: land of the samba beat, world-class football and Copacabana Beach. Or, head to Peru where you'll get to experience the Inca trail and explore the ancient Machu Picchu ruins.

The world’s second largest Latin nation, Argentina will simply blow you away with its majestic Iguazu waterfalls. Sip on a glass of Malbec in Mendoza – Argentina’s famed wine country - and watch a sultry tango performance in Buenos Aires.

  • The Peninsula Valdes

    As one of Argentina's wildlife highlights, be sure to include a visit to the Peninsula Valdes during your trip. Without doubt one of the best places on earth to see marine life up close, you'll have the chance to see the Southern Right whales in their most natural habitat as they take shelter in the bays on either side of the peninsula.

  • 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.
