Best places to visit in Argentina

From the Andes Mountains to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, a rich culture, fantastic food and above all happy and friendly people. It is very easy and safe to get around.

As Argentina is the land of wide open spaces, you have to choose to where to visit so you don't spend your life on a bus. You can rely on the advice from the Evaneos travel community. Whether you talk to tango dancers or intrepid hikers, they will all provide advice to help you make a decision. Depending on the season, you'll get to know the best areas to visit.  

A trip to Argentina starts in Buenos Aires, a European-inspired city with unique neighbourhoods: La Boca with its colourful houses, San Telmo with its antiques market, and Recoleta with its cemetery, etc. Not far from Buenos Aires is Iguazu National Park and it's an essential part of your trip. Iguazu's waterfalls are among the most spectacular in the world.

Head down the Atlantic coast towards Ushuaia. On the way, stop over in Puerto Madryn, the gateway to the Valdès Peninsula where you'll see killer whales and sea lions. You can then travel across Patagonia's haciendas before spending a few days hiking in Ushuaia, the charming port at the ends of the earth with a ski resort atmosphere, and you can then visit El Calafate and come face to face with the terrifying Perito Moreno glacier. On your way back, head for Bariloche's lake district.

If you opt for the north, expect to see beautiful Andean scenery with colourful mountains and cactus deserts. Hire a car to Mendoza or Salta and discover the Quebrada de Cafayate and the charming city of Cachi. Then head towards Humahuaca on the Brazilian border where you can admire the impressive seven colour mountain in Purnamarca.

Just have a look on the Evaneos website to find images of all these natural wonders.
