Argentina is an enormous country, with a climate that differs not only according to season but altitude. Many of the regions are fantastic year round, whilst others offer contrasting but equally enjoyable activities in different seasons.
Give one of our experts a ring, and they can tailor your vacation around the experiences that interest you the most. In the mean time, we’ve got a few pointers to give you:
- Aside from Buenos Aires, other year round destinations include the wine regions of Mendoza and Cordoba – cooler in Argentina’s winter, but still fantastic for riding and other outdoor pursuits.
- Likewise in the Lake District, San Carlos de Bariloche and the surrounding areas can be visited all year round, with stunning landscapes and skiing in the Argentine winter.
- Patagonia offers totally contrasting but equally beautiful landscapes whatever the season, but for glassy blue lakes and vast expanses of exposed tundra it’s best experienced from October to April. Some hotels open in winter for skiing, but if you’re not skiing your best bet in the winter months of June, July and August is to head into Chilean Patagonia where the hotels have a greater selection of winter based activities.
- The main regions that are dependent on season are Salta and Jujuy – these experience rain from January to March, and the roads can be impassable afterwards so it’s best to avoid them at this time.
- As for Iguazu, the climate is humid subtropical with an impressive annual rainfall and no dry season – but this is of course what makes the falls so spectacular.
