Regions in Argentina

With the Andes to the west, the mind-blowing Iguazu Falls to the northeast, and to the south, Patagonia, with its vast steppe, glaciers and sub Antarctic wildlife, Argentina offers breathtaking scenic extremes – washed down with world renowned wines in the vineyards of Mendoza and lashings of culture in bustling Buenos Aires.
Old world meets new in this buzzing European-style city that radiates charisma. The capital city of Argentina, Buenos Aires is not only a hub for the rest of Argentina, it is also a fascinating destination in its own right: take one of our off-the-beaten-track tours to get under her skin and follow it up with a night out at a tango show at an authentic Argentine theatre (we highly recommend it!)
A handsome town with lovely tree-lined streets and a glorious Andean backdrop, Mendoza is the gateway to Argentina’s famous winelands. The premier wine growing region in the whole of Latin America, greater Mendoza’s vineyards and wineries will impress any budding wine expert and with some fantastic luxury hotels to stay at, exploring this beautiful region is a real treat for the senses.
Iguazu (Iguassu) Falls are a must-see if you’re near the Argentine-Brazilian border; 82 metres of foaming water cascading down a sheer cliff face, adding up to one of the most stunning waterfalls in the world. They’re also easy to reach from Buenos Aires, with a 90-minute flight. It is sometimes said ‘from the Brazilian side you see the falls, and from the Argentinian side you live them’; certainly Argentina can lay claim to more of them, with about 80% of Iguazu lying on the Argentine side.
Spellbinding Los Glaciares National Park, reached via the gateway town of El Calafate, is a must: trek on the awesome Perito Moreno glacier, the world’s only advancing glacier and watch giant blocks of ice crash to the water. An incredible expanse of lakes, ice and mountains including the well-known Mount Fitzroy, Los Glacieres is astoundingly beautiful and the area attracts many trekkers keen to explore this remote corner of South America.

Head northwest and find the original Argentina: indigenous communities, colourful colonial towns heavily influenced by their Spanish heritage and dramatic Andean landscapes dotted with cactae. With such breathtaking scenery, outdoor enthusiasts will love the province of Salta with many hotels offering great options for horse riding, hiking and mountain biking.

Pretty-as-a-picture, Argentina’s Lake District, which extends into Northern Patagonia, is perfect for outdoorsy types (think hiking, world-class fishing, horse riding and golf), and with a couple of gorgeous luxury spa hotels, indoorsy types won’t be disappointed either. In the heart of the Lake District lies the attractive, bustling town of Bariloche, framed by snow-tipped Andean mountains and overlooking lake Nahuel Huapi.
