Combining a laid-back vibe that is pervasive amongst Latin American countries with its distinctly European heritage, a luxury holiday to Argentina makes for a fascinating travel destination. Our Travel Designers have explored the region, sampled the activities, and stayed at the best properties, so when we make a recommendation, you can trust that it’s based on firsthand experience.
The west of Argentina is dominated by the majestic Andes Mountains, where you can traverse from the low-key Northern Altiplano with its dry desert and colourful culture, to the mountainous highlands.
Head further south to the world-famous wine region of Mendoza, where vineyards, tree-lined streets and sunny weather awaits. Aside from wine tasting, here you can try white water rafting, fly fishing, or horseback riding at sunrise. A bit further south, northern Patagonia offers lakes, snow-capped mountains and the famed Cerro Castillo ski region – a popular destination where rivers meet the ocean in spectacular deltas with icebergs galore. Up north, hotspots include the stunning Iguazu Falls and the Ibera wetlands that are home to wildlife and birds.
No trip to Argentina is complete without a stop in the eclectic and spirited capital of Buenos Aires. As the soul of the country, the city offers a lively scene of magnificent architecture, modern museums, vibrant street-art, and the steamy strut of the Tango. Carnivorous pleasures in the shape of Parillas (steakhouses) serving bife de chorizo (sirloin), vacio (flank steak) and ojo de bife (rib eye) are on every corner.
