Overview & Highlights

Argentina's Big Four: Buenos Aires, the glaciers of the far south in Patagonia, the lake district around Bariloche and Iguazú Falls on the Brazilian border. 

This holiday will give you a real taste of the variety this huge country has to offer the visitor. Much of the natural landscape is on a huge scale, ranging from sub-tropical jungle to frozen ice-caps. Here you are taken to experience the most captivating highlights.

Beyond the infinite skies, shimmering glaciers and ice-spiked Andean mountains, this is the cradle of the tango and a producer of fine wines. Its capital, Buenos Aires, is one of Latin America’s most stylish; its people, cultured and welcoming. This heritage, forged by waves of immigrants (including Italians, English and Welsh), is unique. Fly south to the wilderness of remote Patagonia, with immense glaciers and sprawling sheep ranches. Move on to the lake district, peppered with waterfalls, azure lakes and snow-dusted volcanoes. End your trip at the monumental Iguazú waterfalls surrounded by rainforest, leaving you perfectly positioned, if you wish, to move on into Brazil..
