Argentina is astonishing for its diversity of climate and landscape
Very few countries in the world are as varied as Argentina. It offers the visitor a vast range of cultural and outdoor experiences.
Savour the vibrancy of Buenos Aires, the serenity and undisturbed wildlife of the Ibera Wetlands, the desert geology and lunar landscapes of Salta Province, the frontier spirit of Ushuaia or the awesome majesty of glacial Patagonia. To cap it all, the natural wonder of the world that is the Iguassu Falls will take your breath away.
Whether walking through the empty vastness of the Andes, horse riding with the gauchos on private estancias (perhaps even playing polo), paddling a boat past docile Capybaras and ticking off the vast number of bird species in the wetlands or just enjoying world class Malbecs and a classic Argentinian steak in Mendoza – the experience can be as serene or challenging as you wish to make it.
The Inca ruins in the Northwest region are the remains of a long vanished civilization more often associated with Peru, but the local Quecha speaking population share a similar cultural heritage and still produce their distinctive and brightly coloured handicrafts.
Moving forward three hundred years, the grand Jesuit missions may have been disbanded in the eighteenth century but what remains provides witness of the bravery and tenacity of the first missionaries. And the numerous churches, estancias and whaling stations, many now beautifully restored, serve as reminders of the early European settlers.
Latterly the belle époque feel of central Buenos Aires, the cobbled streets and tango bars all carry a reminiscence of the glamorous, and occasionally notorious years of the first half of the twentieth century.
Argentina’s summer months are from November until March, which is the best time to visit the South. The North enjoys warmer weather all year round.
Today Argentina offers a choice of top quality accommodation all over the country, which, together with reliable and affordable internal flights makes combining various different experiences the key to a successful itinerary. One thing is for sure – one visit will not be enough!
