Argentina Holidays

Argentina stretches hundreds of miles, covering shifting physical terrains and diverse lifestyles. From sophisticated Buenos Aires to the wilderness of Patagonia, here cowboys roam the Pampas and whales the sheltered Patagonian coast. This is a country where you can face the Devil's Throat at Iguazu Falls then be in Buenos Aires the next day and where icy-blue glaciers meet fjords at the continent’s southern limit. The south of Argentina is home to the luxurious estancias of the Lake District and wine-lands of Mendoza whilst further north the historic city of Salta sits in an area of dramatic scenery. Home to penguins, fine wine and the museum at the end of the world, in Argentina you can combine rugged landscapes with undeniable luxury for a most memorable experience. We have over 30 years experience in planning tailor-made holidays and tours to Argentina.

Places to visit in Argentina

Argentina is an immense country of contrasting experiences, landscapes, cultures and wildlife. Cosmopolitan capital Buenos Aires is a city of grand European squares, cheerful cafes, street-side tango and multi-coloured homes. Wine connoisseurs should visit Mendoza with its world-class vineyards and beautiful wine lodges, then explore the pampas grasslands famously home to the colourful gauchos. Situated between the flatlands and mountain peaks of the Andes is Cordoba and the central sierras where the peaceful pastures are perfect for horse riding activities. Soak up the Spanish colonial heritage of Salta or feel the thundering force of the mighty Iguazu Falls. Patagonia covers a vast swathe of southern Argentina and is the location for much of the country’s best scenery. Largely uninhabited, this region is an untouched wilderness of icy volcanic peaks, fjords, glaciers and some of the finest marine wildlife of the South American continent.

Central and northern Argentina has a very warm climate with high temperatures of around 37°C during the hottest months of the year in January and February. In the summer it can become very humid and rainfall is also common. The winter is much milder by comparison but still warm by European standards and often very dry. Argentina stretches to the tip of the South American continent and the lower parts are subject to very different weather conditions. The extreme south meets the polar region and regularly sees sub-zero temperatures. The remainder of the country is either desert land or covered in high mountains.

Accommodation in Argentina

Buenos Aires has a broad range of hotel accommodation and is the location of some of the continent’s finest hotels. Outside of the capital, the types of hotels vary in style and size but are generally of a good standard. Argentina also has many memorable places to stay. Mendoza is the location of some beautiful and luxurious wine-lodges, there are a number of lovely traditional estancias dotted throughout the country and Patagonia has some spectacularly sited lodges – especially close to the Perito Moreno glacier. Accommodation in more remote areas, such as Esteros del Ibera and Bahia Bustamante, tend to be simpler and smaller in size.
