Argentina Holidays


Vibrant, awe inspiring and incredibly diverse, Argentina bursts with life. From the colourful streets of Buenos Aires, the remote wilderness of Patagonia, to world class wineries - Argentina has the lot.

Argentina’s cosmopolitan capital city Buenos Aires boasts grand avenues, a thriving café culture and sophisticated restaurants. Explore the many distinct neighbourhoods, such as trendy Palermo, the thriving La Boca complete with impromptu tango performances or the opulent Recoleta to name a few.

"Poor old Niagara" Eleanor Roosevelt commented when she first beheld the Iguazu Falls and once you’ve experienced the thunderous power of the 275 falls that throw a curtain of mist up 150 metres into the air you may well agree.

Sip world famous Malbecs in the sun drenched vineyards around Mendoza, marvel at the deep blue lakes of Bariloche or explore the stark desert landscapes around Purmamarca, in Northern Argentina.

To the south lies the vast wilderness of Patagonia, with the colossal Perito Moreno Glacier, remote lodges and traditional estancias as well as fantastic trekking opportunities amongst the forests, lakes & glaciers.

Right on the southern tip of the continent lies Ushuaia, the gateway to the wild and undiscovered Tierra del Fuego National Park and port of embarkation for expedition cruises to the Antarctic.

Combining natural splendour and outdoor adventure with passionate people and vibrant cities, few destinations can rival the diversity of experiences on offer in Argentina. Let Trailfinders plan your perfect Argentina adventure today.

  • WHERE TO GO IN ARGENTINA

    Argentina map
    Buenos Aires
    Buenos Aires
    Full of energy, style and sophistication Buenos Aires is undoubtedly one of the great cities of the world. Comprised of 38 eclectic barrios (neighbourhoods) this diverse city offers stunning architecture, historical sites, dramatic tango dancing and fantastic dining. Spend a few days in Argentina’s capital and get under the skin of this buzzing cosmopolitan metropolis.
    Iguazú Falls
    Iguazú Falls
    One of South Americas most awe-inspiring sights, Iguazu Falls are a must see! Iguazu roughly translated means ‘Big Water’ which appropriately describes the 275 waterfalls that form a border between Argentina and Brazil in an epic rainforest setting. Explore the many walkways and viewing platforms within the national park. Prepare to be amazed by the sheer power and beauty of these falls.
    Iberá Wetlands
    Iberá Wetlands
    The Ibera Wetlands (Esteros del Ibera) are the second-largest wetlands in the world and are home to a wide variety of wildlife including caiman, capybara and a large number of birds. Relatively unknown, this is one of the most remarkable ecosystems in Argentina. This huge expanse of wetland is made up of a series of lakes, lagoons and marshland and is a must-visit for nature lovers.
    Mendoza
    Mendoza
    Set against the stunning snow-capped peaks of the Andes, the Mendoza province is Argentina’s premier wine-producing region. The pleasant city of Mendoza boasts leafy plazas and charming cafes whilst the cobbled streets of nearby Chacras de Coria offer a delightful alternative. There are over 1,500 wineries nestled in picturesque scenery which can be visited as part of a day trip or as an overnight stay.
    Salta & The Northwest
    Salta & The Northwest
    North West Argentina offers a variety of landscapes ranging from impressive salt flats to rugged canyons. The city of Salta has the nickname La Linda (the beautiful) as it contains some of the country’s best preserved colonial architecture and is surrounded by striking scenery. Nearby Cafayate boasts impressive wineries whilst the sleepy village Purmamarca sits in the shadow of the Hill of Seven Colours.
    Lake District
    Lake District
    Argentina’s Lake District is a picturesque region where blue lakes are bordered by forested mountains which turn from green in the summer to beautiful reds and oranges in autumn and to snow-capped white in winter. The alpine town of Bariloche has a gorgeous setting on the edge of Lake Nahuel Haupi and a number of outdoor activities are available here including treks in the national park and boat trips on the lakes.
    El Calafate & El Chalten
    El Calafate & El Chalten
    El Calafate is the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park and the stunning Perito Moreno Glacier, one of Argentina’s most impressive natural wonders. View this colossal wall of ice by cruising on the lake to the glacier face or on observation walkways; it is very likely you will see huge chunks of ice break off and crash into the lake below! The nearby town of El Chalten is an outdoor enthusiasts dream and the base for some fantastic treks.
    Peninsula Valdes
    Peninsula Valdes
    This windswept peninsula offers fantastic wildlife viewing and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Southern right whales can often be seen in the bay between June and December, orcas and penguins may be spotted between September and April whilst seals, sea lions and a number of birds can be seen year round. Choose to stay on the peninsula or in the nearby town of Puerto Madryn.
    Ushuaia
    The Southernmost tip of South America, nicknamed the 'End of the World', Ushuaia is not only the gateway to Antarctica, but also a fantastic place for adventurers in it's own right. Explore the rugged landscapes of nearby Tierra del Fuego National Park and Lapataia National Park or sail out onto the Beagle channel to spot the local wildlife.
    The Pampas
    The Pampas, widely known for being the home of the Gaucho are flat and fertile plains that stretch from Buenos Aires all the way to Cordoba. Many traditional estancias are scattered across the countryside, offering an authentic experience and a taste of the 'true Argentina.'
    Cordoba
    Argentina's second largest city is bursting with gorgeous colonial buildings and quaint cafes. Head away from the city and you will be met by rolling hills and the stunning Sierra Mountains, home to many traditional estancias.

    Top Tips From Our Experts

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Michael Hoverd

    A boat ride to the base of the Iguassu Falls is the best way to get a feel for their size and power - just remember to bring a towel!

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Hannah Wardle

    Mendoza is a highlight of any Argentina holiday. What better way to see a country than cycling around visiting a mix of iconic and more boutique vineyards and olive farms with several tastings on route.

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Abby Waters

    Head down to Ushuaia on a domestic flight from Buenos Aires and you will get the most spectacular views over emerald blue lakes and mountain peaks right from your seat.
