A land of sights. A land of tastes. A land of passion.
Argentina is a blend of sophistication and basic instincts. On one hand, it's refined and educated; with a deep appreciation of beauty, whether natural or man-made. On the other, it's fiery and carnal; the creators of a dance described as seduction set to music, and renowned for perfecting the art of cooking meats on a grill.
Sub-tropical in the north, and boasting magnificent glaciers in the south, Argentina's landscape is a mixture of majestic Andean peaks, lush wetlands, cactus-filled deserts, Valdivian forests, salt flats, a stunning lake district, multi-colored mountains, and unusual rock formations. And the wildlife is equally as varied.
Come dance the tango in Buenos Aires. Feast your eyes on the sheer magnitude of Perito Moreno Glacier. Discover the captivating architecture of Salta. See the mighty Iguazú Falls. Visit a winery in Mendoza. See Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in the Western and Southern hemispheres. Visit the town called "the end of the world."
