Argentina is big, beautiful and unbelievably glamorous. Although distances are vast, Argentina's attractions are superbly accessible with good roads and a network of regional airports.
Argentina holidays with Abercrombie & Kent will be as richly memorable as this country of contrasts itself.
Holidays in Argentina begin in Buenos Aires, the 'Paris of Latin America' with open-air cafés spilling onto wide avenues and elegant boulevards lulled by the romantic sounds of the Tango - it is the perfect setting for a holiday in Argentina. With South America's best museums, theatres and art galleries as well as designer boutiques and fashion displays to rival anything in Europe or America - there is no shortage of things to do and see on your Argentina holiday. Make time to take in a proper Tango show, explore the architectural masterpieces, including Eva Peron's grave in the Recoleta cemetery before visiting the old port, now brightly-painted and buzzing with the city's creative flair. No visit to Buenos Aires would be complete without a tour to La Bocca, where narrow alleyways meander through vibrant coloured houses to the central Bocca Stadium.
The North West of Argentina is a panorama of beautiful mountains and lakes inhabited by a wide range of species of birds. It is also home to the Socompa, the Llullaillaco and the Tridente Volcanoes, which are all currently inactive. To the east lies the Andean Mountain range, acting as a breathtaking backdrop.
Continue your Argentina travel towards the Brazilian border. The Iguazu Falls thunder in a myriad of waterfalls through a primeval jungle region. In the pampas of the south, football is replaced by polo. Seals and penguins frolic in the wild waters of the South Atlantic. To add a spirit of adventure to your Argentina holiday, follow the mountains towards Patagonia, a geographic region containing the southernmost portion of South America. Located in Argentina and Chile, it comprises the Andes mountains to the west which provide a natural border whose foothills are ideal for hiking and exploring on horseback.
The Lake District is arguably one of the most beautiful places to visit during your Argentina holiday. Outdoor enthusiasts from around the world travel here in search of extreme outdoor adventures and peaceful escapes. As well as its jaw dropping aesthetic appeal, the diverse quantity of natural attractions and activities make the Lake District a very popular destination for holidays in Argentina
You could end your Argentina holiday in the City of Mendoza, known as "the land of sunshine and wine" is the capital of Cuvo province. Home to Mt Aconcagua and Malbec wines, it is one of the most beautiful cities in Argentina.
We can also provide a tailor made Argentina honeymoon. What better way to start you married life together than with an amazing holiday to this diverse and historic country.
