argentina

Argentina has it all: glamour, beautiful people, fabulous wine, snow-capped peaks, basking whales, amazing glaciers, awe inspiring waterfalls, gauchos and empanadas.

The starting point for every trip should be the capital, Buenos Aires, an elegant and cosmopolitan city that radiates verve and exuberance from every corner. This is a truly great city that comes alive at night, and where heated discussions about politics, fashion and football are held over glasses of Malbec. The city district of San Telmo is full of alleys and colonial architecture is in sharp contrast to the paint box coloured buildings in La Boca.

The Iguazu Falls remains a popular focus point for visitors. This natural splendour with its subtropical setting is accessed by the Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat) where walkways take you right above the falls and into the real action.

The contrasting scenery of 30km long Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia is also well worth a visit and is the stuff of legends. It is vast, imposing, wild and impossibly beautiful.

If you want to see the 'End of the World' head to Ushuaia. This is the starting point for expeditions to Antarctica, or take the Australis boat providing an amazing cruise to Punta Arenas in Chile. Or head to Bariloche, in the heart of Argentina's Lake District, where you can trek amongst the snow-capped peaks, go white water rafting, take a slow boat across a fjord or simply watch the sunset over the mountains.

For culture as opposed to countryside go to Salta, one of Argentina's most charismatic and historic cities Its palm filled plazas and 17th century buildings are delightful to wander around and in the evenings the town comes to life. The food is great and the wine - from nearby Calchaqui Valley or Mendoza - is even better.

Peninsula Valdes is a great spot for seeing a huge array of marine life, birds and a profusion of Patagonian wildlife such as guanacos, rheas and armadillos. During the spring months this treeless island is home to whales, penguins and seals who come to breed at the foot of the peninsula's cliffs.

Argentina provides bountiful opportunities for the adventurous traveller with its diverse geography of snow, deserts, lakes and enduring coastline.
