The ‘Land of Silver’, Argentina likes to do things on a big scale. The birthplace of Che Guevara and the legendary Eva Peron, it is a land of passion and football; fine wine and tango. From the fertile plains of the Pampas, to the extraordinary glaciers of Patagonia, the country is filled with dynamism, European-style towns and cities and vast open landscapes. The capital, Buenos Aires, alone could keep you occupied for days. Known as ‘the Paris of the South’, the wide, tree-lined boulevards of Buenos Aires play host to red-hot tango shows, world renowned operas and some of the finest steak houses in the southern hemisphere.
Away from the bright lights of the big cities you can join gauchos on the fertile grasslands of Patagonia, try wines from the lush landscapes of Mendoza, or visit the thundering waters of Iguazu falls. To the north lie the colourful mountains and gorges of Salta, whilst the beautiful western Lake District of Bariloche provides a chance to fish and hike amongst some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere in the country. Tucked away down south lies the final steppingstone to Antarctica, the remote and dramatic setting of Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of the world.
