When it comes to diversity and culturally rich countries, Argentina is right up their for travellers. You can get the best highlights from the country with this insight.
Argentina is rich and diverse in culture and history. Buenos Aires is a good focal point if tourists are to begin their trips from here. Tango, art, cafés, shopping, museums, parks, restaurants; there is a lot on offer. The famous area of La Boca is very popular as well as the area of La Recoleta. Here you will find museums, parks and a well -known cemetery.
Criss-crossing the country, public transport routes make Argentina a very accessible country for travel. To the north of Argentina lie Iguazu Falls, one of the world’s biggest waterfalls. The falls form the border between Brazil and Argentina and on the Argentinean side it is possible to get up close to the falls and even walk under some parts. It is also worthwhile crossing over into Brazil for the day to visit the falls on the Brazilian side as there you will get a panoramic view across the falls.
Heading west from Buenos Aires many travellers head to Mendoza to go wine tasting. Touring the vineyards on your own is possible and much of the city offers places to hire bikes from. Remember you still have to cycle back though!
Patagonia lies south of Argentina. Bariloche is the gateway to Patagonia and a worthwhile stop. Walk around the lakes or hire a bicycle and take a trip through the Nahuel Huapi National Park. In one day it is possible to do a 50km circuit taking in the magnificent scenery and views across the lakes and through the forest. During winter you can go snowboarding and skiing while also organising white water rafting trips year round in Bariloche. Continuing south from Bariloche head to El Calafate for hiking and climbing in the national park, and then onto El Perrito Moreno glacier – the largest non polar glacier in the world and one that isn’t retreating unlike many others. Walk on the boardwalks for panoramic views or take a guided trek on the glacier to get up and close or even take a boat ride up to it. Round your trip of by visiting the world’s southern most city, Ushuaia. Nicknamed ‘the end of the world’ it makes for an interesting story to tell your friends. Here you can hike in the national park or ski and snowboard in winter.
