Why We Love It
Think of the things you know about Argentina: tango, the Andes, lively Buenos Aires, Perito Moreno Glacier, gauchos, the Pampas, football, ‘cerveza’ and the mighty Iguazu Falls. And that is just for starters. The list of things to see, do and experience is endless and you won’t be able to stop yourself from falling in love with this vibrant country of 40 million people. It is one of the most diverse countries in South America and offers a truly sensational travel experience. Crossing the border from Bolivia into Argentina a sign declares that there’s 5171KM left to travel before arriving in Ushuaia at the very southern tip of the continent. Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world and the second biggest in South America. Packed into these vast distances is a stunning assortment of scenery, ranging from the hot, humid jungles of northern Missiones Province to the huge grazing lands of the central pampas. Further south is Patagonia with its dramatic mountains and windswept plains while to the west lay the towering peaks of the Andes, stretching from the top of the country to the southern most point on Tierra del Fuego – just two days sailing from Antarctica. Climb a mountain, stand in awe at the base of a moving glacier, go whale watching, take tango lessons, watch some polo, enjoy fine dining in Palermo, get wet at the Iguazu Falls, camp with gauchos, stay on an estancia, wander the antique markets of San Telmo or perhaps just kick back and relax with a glass of sensational ‘Malbec’ red from Mendoza and watch the world pass by. Argentina has all this and so much more.
