Travel to Argentina

Argentina is a nation that has seen some good times and some very bad times. Through it all, the people of this great nation have developed a certain perseverance that is rare in the world today.

It is reflected in their pride, their humor, and their traditions. Each day deserves to be explored to its fullest extent in Argentina and that is the attitude you’ll find from the first moment you find yourself there.

You’ll find that there are many passions to pursue in Argentina, but none are greater than dancing and football. Find a club to dance the tango, take in a live match, and you’ll get a first-hand glimpse of the passion this nation has.

Mother Nature also seems to be passionate about Argentina. Whether you visit the powerful Iguazu Falls in the north or explore the Glaciar Perito Moreno in the south, the topographical vistas are incredible to see. Let’s not forget about the Andes Mountains either, which offer some of the highest peaks on this side of the planet.

And you’ll discover that there seems to be a steak restaurant on almost every corner. You’ll also find Italian, Scandinavian, and Asian influences are abundant, but all pair well with the Argentinian wine that you’ll want to take home by the case.

Salt flats, vivid forests, and numerous guided adventures all await you in Argentina. Flamingos call some of the rich wetlands home. You’ll find penguins stopping by to say help. Overseen by mountain peaks and spectacular urban opportunities, the culture is somewhat edgy, but rich in what matters most: passion.

Best of Argentina

Argentina offers a vast array of exciting sites, historic landmarks, and stunning views to create the perfect holiday opportunity. Deciding what you want to see first can be a challenging experience.

This list of the best of what Argentina offers might just help you make the decision to start exploring.

#1. The Quebrada de Humahuaca

This mountain range hides a coat of many colors just beneath its surface. Stretching out for over 150km, you’ll be following in the steps of the ancient Incan trails as you make this journey. You can either drive through this range to experience its colors, take a trail through the mountains, or enjoy the views from a village like Tilcara.

#2. Salta

This city is what Argentina is all about as a culture. You’ll find perfectly manicured public squares. The streets are often paved with cobblestone. The churches are always colorful. There are Spanish influences combining with local touches to give the city a distinct personality. You’ll also find a great steak here, a wonderful bottle of wine, and plenty of opportunities to go exploring.

#3. Mendoza

If you prefer your wine without a steak, then this province must be your destination of choice. On a clear day, you’ll see the Andes mountains towering over vineyards. Many of the small villages in the province feature local wines at bars and restaurants. You can also visit the vineyards for direct samples at some locations.

#4. Los Glaciares National Park

One of Argentina’s most-famous attractions is Perito Moreno. As you travel to see this stunning glacier, you’ll discover icebergs floating by your chartered boat. You’ll see 4 other glaciers on your way. Then you’ll spot an incredible glacier that is over 30km in length. Most glaciers today are retreating, but not Perito Moreno. It continues to advance, giving visitors a chance to see large chunks of ice break off into the water.

#5. El Chalten

After visiting Perito Moreno, head over to this tourist village. In the warmer months, you can visit the tall, jagged peaks that surround you within Los Glaciares National Park. There are multiple paths that cater to various difficulty levels. To reach the true summit, however, you’ll need to prove you have mountaineering skills. Guest houses here are limited, so if this is where you wish to stay, you’ll need to plan well in advance.

#6. Ushuaia

This is where Argentina has declared the end of the world to be. If you wish to take a cruise down to Antarctica, this is where your journey will originate. You’ll find fantastic hiking trails here, plus plenty of opportunities to explore the various channels and waterways in the area. Make your way to Harberton Ranch, a 19th century pioneer home, to encounter the local wildlife.

The best of Argentina can take your breath away in so many different ways. If you’re on a quest to design the perfect holiday adventure, this country must be one of your top choices.
