So you’re thinking of your next trip, trying to decide if you want beach, mountains, desert, romantic, family-friendly, the list goes on. Well what if I told you that Argentina has it all? But really, if there’s one thing this country can boast about, it’s its variety.
Argentina has a bit of every climate, a bit of every scenery and a melting pot of diversity. So where do you go depending on what you want? Where to start? Here’s the best of the best for when you travel to Argentina.
If you want mountains: Bariloche
The lake district of Argentina is surrounded by, you guessed it, mountains. All year round, this is a great city to visit for a quaint city with incredible outdoor opportunities. A day of hiking in the mountains couldn’t give a better reward than looking out to the sparkling lakes of Bariloche. There’s no limit as to what you can do: kayak, boat rides and biking, oh my!
In winter, the options don’t diminish much! Come experience a frosty Bariloche, with mountains covered in snow and ready for its skiers. Finish the day with some Patagonian hot chocolate and call it a very perfect day.
If you want sun and sand (but no water): Salta
The deserts of the Salta region are expansive and extremely photogenic. With unique rock formations, salt flats and miles of sand, get lost for several days exploring this culture-rich area. The city center in Salta holds folkloric dancing that anybody can join in on and is home to many museums. Don’t miss the famous pink cathedral!
If you want to be WOWED: Iguazu
This one’s a no brainer! You can’t travel to Argentina without seeing Iguazu Falls, which is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. With waterfalls that stretch over two countries, you won’t be picking your jaw up off the floor anytime soon. Smack dab in the middle of the jungle, cross this one off your bucket list!
If you’re a wine lover: Mendoza
You don’t have to be a wine connoisseur to visit Mendoza, the wine region of Argentina. Anyone who enjoys a glass (or four) of Malbec is a great candidate to see the sprawling vineyards and proud mountains. Spend a day touring wineries on bike and sampling as you go, which will ensure a very happy afternoon.
The outdoors of Mendoza also have lots to offer, with white water rafting, horseback riding, skiing, hot springs and hiking, there’s something for everyone here.
If you want to visit a postcard: El Calafate
El Calafate, nestled down in chilly Patagonia, is a town made famous for something incredibly breathtaking: the Perito Moreno glacier. The glacier attracts thousands of people each year to absorb its beauty and do some on-ice trekking. Make sure you travel to Argentina during our summer if you want the best conditions to see the glacier!
