Casa Rosada, Buenos Aires, Argentina Casa Rosada

Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

Home of the tango

Porteños, as the people of Buenos Aires are known, are proud of their capital, a vibrant, unique mix of European culture and Latin flair. here, the dance beat is constant, the wine flows fast and the locals party ‘til late. Galleries are plentiful and the rose-hued Casa Rosada, where Eva Peron made speeches from the balcony, is not to be missed. As the home of the tango, Buenos Aires offers a variety of dance shows, but if you want the downtown experience, head to La Catedral in the middle-class barrio of Almagro. Lessons are available, but don’t even think about turning up before midnight, as porteños don’t put on their dancing shoes until well into the early hours.

Iguazu Falls, Argentina Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls

Natural wonder

Its cluster of 275 cascades makes Iguazu Falls one of the most spectacular waterfalls on the planet. Indeed, upon first seeing Iguazu, Eleanor Roosevelt apparently exclaimed “Poor Niagara!” Judge for yourself by walking the raised boardwalks or riding a boat into the mist, and be sure to see both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides for a variety of views. Not just about the water, the falls are surrounded by dense jungles; keep your eyes peeled for coatis, brightly coloured parrots and huge tropical butterflies.

Backed up by snow-capped mountains and surrounded by twinkling blue waters, this is an outdoorsy town, with hiking and biking all the rage in summer and skiing the thing to do in winter. To top it off, the town itself, dotted with chalet-style log cabins, offers numerous quaint chocolate shops and restaurants serving up sizzling fondues.

The frozen south

Encompassing parts of both Chile and Argentina, Patagonia feels like another world. Here, the Perito Moreno Glacier creeps slowly forward, occasionally dropping huge chunks of ice into Lake Argentino, the towering peaks of Fitz Roy offer hiking trails galore, and whales, seals and penguins frolic in the Beagle Channel, easily accessible from Ushuaia, itself just 700 miles from Antarctica. But the stand-out attraction is the end-of-the-world landscapes of Tierra del Fuego National Park.
