Holidays to Argentina

Stretching over 2,000 miles from north to south, Argentina is a diverse and scenic country. The capital, Buenos Aires, is a buzzing and cosmopolitan city with a distinctly European feel and with some of the best steaks in the world, it’s also a foodies’ paradise. Enjoy dramatic landscapes of the Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia and the majestic Iguazu Falls on the Brazilian border. In the south of Argentina, you can go whale watching off the Atlantic coast or visit Tierra del Fuego (the land of fire) home to the southern-most city in the world which acts as the starting point for luxury cruises to Antarctica.

Travel Tips & Advice for Argentina

Argentina Activities

Get into the Argentine spirit and spend an evening watching a tango show, take part in tango classes or watching locals perform impromptu on the streets. Take a city tour of Buenos Aires, strolling through the colourful La Boca neighbourhood, the Plaza de Mayo or ‘main square’ and the Recoleta Cemetery, resting place of former Argentine First Lady, Eva Peron. Visit a traditional gaucho ranch testing your equestrian skills, travel to Ushuaia the southernmost city in the world (and the starting point for cruises to Antarctica) or ski, hike and try out water sports in Bariloche. 

Argentina Food & Drink

No trip to Argentina would be complete without trying the country’s most popular food at least once: steak. Typically cooked as a barbequed (asado) meat, prime cuts include lomo (or tenderloin) and costillas (ribs). Argentina’s European heritage is evident in its cuisine with pasta, paella and sauerkraut given a local twist. For a sweet treat, try dulce de leche made from condensed milk boiled until it becomes caramelised and served with croissants and biscuits. For a tipple, try one of the country’s excellent wines; malbecs and cabernets from Mendoza or syrahs from San Juan.

Argentina Attractions

The number one attraction on your Argentine ‘bucket list’ should be the impressive Iguazu Falls. Straddling the borders of Argentina and Brazil, travellers can visit the falls from both sides. Cool things down in El Calafate, getting up close to the Perito Moreno and Upsala Glaciers. Spend time in the Peninsula Valdes, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre due to its conservation of marine mammals including southern right whales, sea lions and elephant seals. Or get cultural in Córdoba, visiting the city’s galleries and museums and taking in the independent film scene.
