Argentina Tours & Holidays
Join us on a holiday to Argentina
Experience the spectacular sights and sounds of Argentina; from the roaring thunder of Iguazú Falls to Patagonia’s soaring mountains and blue-white glaciers; and from the colourful streets of Buenos Aires to the leafy avenues of Mendoza in the heart of Argentinian wine country.
Discover the vibrant Argentinian capital, Buenos Aires. A cultural delight filled with history, elegance and dark Spanish, Buenos Aires is destined to delight your senses. Walk in the footsteps of Eva Perón, take in the sights of Microcentro, the city’s lively heart, then head to one of the city's bodegones in search of traditional food and great value. See the Parliament buildings on historic Plaza de Mayo, including the pink Casa Rosada, and step back in time inside the 18th-century Cabildo where the city council once met.
Later, soak up the passion and rhythms of an authentic tango show, relax and enjoy Buenos Aires’ classy cafe-culture and wide boulevards, or pay a visit to the famously colourful La Boca district.
No holiday to Argentina is complete without a visit Iguazú Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world. Don’t miss the Devil’s Throat – undoubtedly one of the most dramatic sections of the falls - where the deafening cascade plunges in to the depths below.
Far to the south, on the Patagonian coast, you can encounter southern right whales, elephant seals and Magellan penguins at incredibly close quarters at UNESCO World Heritage-designated Peninsula Valdés. Inland, close to the border with southern Chile, you’ll find the vast Perito Moreno Glacier and Los Glaciares National Park. The sight and sound of vast chunks of ice breaking from the Patagonian Icecap to plunge with a thunderous crash into the waters below is one no traveller should miss.

Things to do in Argentina
The second largest country in South America, Argentina has a diverse landscape and plenty to see and do. The UNESCO World Heritage-designated natural wonders of Peninsula Valdés and the Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia, and Iguazú Falls in the north of the country are justifiably renowned as being among the most memorable sights in the world. Whatever your tastes, Argentina will not disappoint.
Be sure to add at least one of the below to your list of things to do on your holiday in Argentina.
Patagonia is undoubtedly one of the most dramatic wilderness regions in the world. The stunning mountain ranges and vast open spaces create a unique open-air theatre. The natural beauty creates an unforgettable experience for all visitors and, in particular, for lovers of wildlife. It is home to elephant seals, sea lions, dolphins and penguins, as well as to eagles, albatross, cormorants and skuas.
Enjoy a fascinating guided walking tour of the Argentine side of Iguazú Falls, accompanied by a park ranger who will explain the region’s delicate eco-system as you wander along the well-maintained paths, from which the views are simply breathtaking. Take a 25-minute train ride to the most spectacular of the torrents, the famous, UNESCO-listed Devil’s Throat. And, if possible cross to the Brazilian side of the Falls for more spectacular views.
Known as the Paris of South America, the gloriously European Argentinian capital, Buenos Aires, is one of the world’s great urban experiences – with stylish buildings, wide boulevards and leafy parks, poignant history and a growing foodie culture. Explore its barrios, stopping to sit at a pavement café, sip coffee in the sun and watch the world go by.

Food and drink in Argentina
Taking influences from Mediterranean methods of cooking, Argentine cuisine is a cultural blend of European cuisines with a South American twist, and makes heavy use of local agricultural products.
Steak, and meat generally, is hugely popular in Argentina, making beef the national food in all but name. Wherever you go, you’ll find plenty of dishes containing meat, prepared in various ways. And if you’re a real meat lover, be sure to try asado – a slow-roasted barbecue of various cuts of simply seasoned beef, pork or chicken.
Argentina is one of the world's largest producers of wine, with fine examples produced in the Mendoza, San Juan and La Rioja regions. Argentinian beer is less well known around the world, but you can still find local craft brews to try in addition to the country's most popular beer - Quilmes.
And, if you have a sweet tooth, be sure to try alfajores, a soft, shortbread-like cookie filled with dulce de leche (which you'll also find used in icing on cakes, spread on toast and as an ice-cream flavour or topping).
