Welcome to this stretch – 3650 km from north to south – of beautiful country from the Andean forests through mountain lakes, the open cowboy-country of the Pampas and Patagonia right down to Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica. Argentina has wild space enough for all and then some.
The country is home to a long list of noteworthy spectacles: among them are national treasures such as Aconcagua, a beast of a mountain over 22,000 ft high and arguably the tallest non-technical mountain in the world; Patagonia’s Perito Moreno, FitzRoy, and Upsala glaciers to name just a few; the roaring Iguazu Falls of the lush Northeast; the surreal desert and jungle landscapes of the Northwest; a thriving gaucho culture in the Pampas; deep, leggy Malbecs and light, white Torrontes; and of course, Tango, one of the world’s most energetic and sensual dence forms. One thing is for certain – you can’t do it all in one trip to Argentina, but you can certainly try.
Whether you choose to ascend Aconcagua through open wilderness over grassy hillsides and alpine glaciers, or pedal through the expansive vineyards around Mendoza, popping into boutique bodegas and family estancias, or explore in wild Patagonia or even get lost in the mystical canyons of the Northwest, this wild and diverse land will challenge your body, revive your soul, and keep you coming back for more.
