From the roar of the powerful Iguazu Falls to magical, tango-fueled nights in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, to hiking amid calving glaciers, Argentina delivers exquisite urban design and powerful natural beauty.
The sultry tango danced on the European boulevards and avenues of Buenos Aires are enough to take anyone’s breath away. Enjoy 11 pm parilla dinners with bottles of Argentine wine and mouth-watering cuisine, amid picturesque architecture and delectable fashion. Buenos Aires is a bustling water-front city filled with sophistication, live music and interesting neighbourhoods.
Further South, for those who are enlivened by sweeping landscapes, are the great expanses of the Patagonia region – some 670,000 sq km of plains, desert lands and rising terraces in the west that lie at the foot of the Andes mountain range. From armadillos and pumas, to whales and penguins, the rewards are many for those who seek Patagonia's vast untouched beauty.

North of the capital city of Buenos Aires is charming Córdoba, home to exquisite Spanish colonial architecture and the UNESCO Manzana Jesuítica (Jesuit Block), a 17th-century complex with active cloisters, churches and the original campus of the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, one of South America’s oldest universities.
The city’s focal point is Plaza San Martín and its neo-baroque Cathedral of Córdoba. From here fly to Mendoza and visit vinedos (vineyards) to taste fresh foods paired with wines, olives, olive oil and herbs from the gardens.
At the southern end in Patagonia region is Bariloche, known formally as San Carlos de Bariloche. This large town, nestled in the Andes Mountains, borders Nahuel Huapi, a large glacial lake.
Enjoy Swiss alpine-style architecture and delectable chocolate, sold in shops lining Calle Mitre, the main street. From Bariloche, hike or ski the nearby mountains and explore the surrounding Lake District 893 meters above sea level.
Calafate, known as El Calafate, only 200 meters above sea level, serves the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park, home to the massive Perito Moreno Glacier, whose ever-shifting icy landscape is popular for hiking and sightseeing.
Calafate sits near the edge of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field in the Argentine province of Santa Cruz. Visit the Glaciarium, a modern interpretive center that teaches on the region’s numerous glaciers. Be prepared to be awed by the sheer enormity of Mother Earth and the groaning and creaking of the shifting glaciers.
“Patagonia is extraordinary (beyond expectations!) and we thoroughly enjoyed each location of our activities. Arakur and Explora are fantastic (particularly the latter) and Xelena, while clearly not on the same level, was totally adequate for our needs. All of many transfers and excursions were smooth… We loved the diversity of experiences and landscapes and the amount of time away was just right. Will treasure this experience for a long time to come!”
