Argentina is a vast colourful country famous for tango, steaks and glaciers, but home to so much more. Boasting a staggering diversity of landscapes, the worldâ€™s eighth largest country is as different from end to end as possible, and offers the intrepid visitor a wealth of experiences to fascinate and delight.
The capital city of Buenos Aires has a distinctly European feel, but with a definite Argentinean twist. Cheer with football enthusiasts in the multi-coloured La Boca district, explore the haunting crypts in Recoleta cemetery â€“ burial place of Evita â€“ and catch a street tango show before dining on the finest steak in the world.
The thunderous Iguassu Falls in the north entices visitors to her roaring waters, thought to be the most breathtaking in the world. The beautifully preserved colonial town of Salta is gateway to such diverse terrain as blinding white salt flats, ochre deserts and ancient lava flows. Ski enthusiasts will adore the pristine peaks of Bariloche, while the vibrant university town of CÃ³rdoba is the perfect spot from which to explore the surrounding region with its jagged peaks and fertile hills. Patagonia, the southernmost tip of the Continent, is a region not to be missed. This little-explored area has a wild, rugged landscape, boasts craggy glaciers and spectacular national parks and is an adventurerâ€™s dream.
From the thundering torrents of Iguassu Falls in the north, to the forbidding â€˜end-of-the-worldâ€™ at Tierra del Fuego in Southern Patagonia, and from the frenetic pace of Buenos Aires to the relaxed tranquility of the fertile wine region in the midlands, Argentina is a destination that will not disappoint.
