Argentina is a destination rich in contrasts: its landscapes, weather and culture vary from the special charm of the North with its legacy of Pre Colombian and Colonial traditions, the abundance of wild life, flora in the Northeast, to the vastness, isolation and breathtaking views of the glaciers and marine life of Patagonia. The wine and sunshine in the Cuyo region and the brightness and exuberance of tango in Buenos Aires, the “Paris of South America”, and The Pampas, one of the richest natural regions of the continent and home to the “gaucho”, complete the wonders of this land of contrasts.
Many of Argentina's most popular attractions are not in the cities however, but spread across its verdant landscape. The famous Iguazú Falls, voted one of the natural wonders of the world, draw tourists from all over the globe, as do the excellent vineyards of the wine region in Mendoza, and the popular ski resorts Bariloche and Las Leñas.
Argentina is a patchwork made up of colourful panoramas and even more colourful people. A hugely popular tourist destination in South America, a holiday in Argentina is an adventure likely never to be forgotten.
