Argentina is quite the South American. Its capital pulses with life, the passion of tango and tangles of traffic. Buenos Aires has buildings with fine stone facades, fashionalbly-dressed locals and Jacaranda-flanked footpaths. Other metropolitan stops to include on your itinerary are Mendoza and Córdoba.
The Andes soar beyond 6,000 metres here, the Iguazú Falls tumble off a basalt plateau in the rainforests of the northeast and Patagonia's arid lands and glaciers make for some of the most captivating geography you can encounter on the planet. This is a country stuffed with natural wonders that will bring you an entirely different perspective on ecosystems once you've encountered them.
With so many options, it's tricky to know where to start, so here's a quick guide to making the most of your time in Argentina:
- Feel the rhythm of life with a tango session (milonga) in Buenos Aires
- Ski or trek from the Andean foothills' town of San Carlos de Bariloche
- Experience the advance of the Perito Moreno Glacier, 80 kilometres from El Calafate
- Adventure to Ushuaia (the world's southernmost city)
