More than just Tango and steak, Argentina is a vast country with incredible experiences to match. With so many different adventures to be had, here’s a top five ‘must-do experiences’ when visiting this eclectic country on a South American luxury holiday.
Malbec in Mendoza
The finest tasting Malbec in the world comes from this incredible region so for anyone with a penchant for the alcoholic grape drink, this is a must. This handsome town is set to a spectacular backdrop of the Andes Mountain range and has more Michelin starred restaurants than you can work your way through.
Peace and quiet in Patagonia
The gateway to Antarctica, Patagonia is a vast, wild land on the southern tip of the country. Trek on the incredible Perito Moreno glacier or hike through a number of truly incredible National Parks including the spellbinding Los Glacaires National Park.
Buzz about in Buenos Aires
Charismatic and radiating with chic charm, Buenos Aires is one of the chicest cities on the planet with fabulous boutique hotels, incredible food and wine and glamorous locals. The best way to experience it? Simply grab a coffee on one of the tree-lined streets and people watch to your heart’s content.
Wildlife on the Valdes Peninsula
Penguins, sea lions, elephant seals, whales – animal lovers, start packing your bags. This coastal region of Patagonia is truly unique, see Southern Right Whales from June to November and if you’re lucky few can spot beaching orcas from December to April.
Sitting on the Argentine and Brazilian boarder, Iguassu Falls is without a doubt one of the world’s spectacular natural water features. The Argentine side has incredible panoramic views and is best for ‘experiencing’ the falls close up rather than just viewing from a far.
