When is the best time to visit?
Since Argentina is a vast country, with climates ranging from the warm North to the icy South, when to visit really depends on where you plan on going. But as a general rule of thumb, travelers should aim to visit from April to June (fall) or from September to December (spring.)
Where to go in Argentina?
City life in Buenos Aires is a constant blur and a must-see for any visitor interested in soaking up the exciting culture of this country. Argentina boasts a host of natural splendors as well, from the Iguazú Falls in the subtropical north to the icy beauty of Perito Moreno Glacier and the Andean salt flats. Whatever destination travelers prefer, most will agree on one thing: there’s nothing like a well grilled Argentinian steak accompanied by a glass of local red wine.
How many days do I need?
To truly experience Argentina, and eat your way through their diverse cuisine, plan to spend at least 10 days in this high-energy country.
Experience the sophistication of Buenos Aires, the mesmerizing force of the Iguazu Falls, the spectacular glaciers of El Calafate, and more. This 12 day trip to Argentina's historic capital and then across Patagonia perfectly balances natural and cultural sightseeing, making it ideal for any adventurous traveler.
Stroll through Buenos Aires' eclectic neighborhoods before visiting the breathtaking Iguazu Falls National Park in this short but sweet itinerary that balances culture with nature. The perfect short trip for active travelers who are short on time but hoping to catch some of Argentina's most famous highlights.
While Northern Argentina is among the least explored areas of the country, it is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding areas to visit. Sitting at the foot of the Andes, it offers spectacular scenery of snow-capped volcanoes, vast salt flats, and otherworldly rock formations. This 15-day trip takes you to the area’s most dramatic sights, giving you a great taster of what the area offers.
From the multicolored gorges of Cafayate to the Yunga cloud forest, and on to the salt flats of Jujuy, northern Argentina is an immensely diverse destination. This off-the-beaten-path region is great for hikers and bikers to get out and explore easygoing villages and gorgeous natural wonders while taking in some gaucho culture and enjoying superb local wines.
One of the best ways to explore Argentina is on four wheels, giving you the chance to explore the country at your own pace while soaking in the country's spectacular natural scenery. This eight-day road trip takes you from the lively city of Mendoza to the polychromatic mountains of the north.

The entire kimkim team was fantastic! We had several flight delays and changes and could not have been more impressed by the support provided by Mery, our drivers and our tour guides to quickly and seamlessly resolve any issues with the airlines. Knowing we had a team behind us we could depend on was an added bonus.
Our guide, Manuel, in Iguazu was terrific!
I cannot recommend kimkim enough and will reach out to the group first as we begin planning or next journey.

Martin at KimKim, for the last year, has been dealing with your July Eclipse trip to Argentina 2019.

This was our first time using KimKim and not the last! Argentina was a wonderful experience and we'll be back!
Thank you again for making this one of the most memorable trips!

The best of northern argentina - 14 days, Argentina - Jun 14 - Jun 29, 2019
Thanks again for this wonderful trip! Back home, we wish w're back there.
We had issues, but you were there, to get everything right.
Day by day we will review the trip.
Day 1: we had to call you for the car. The changed flight schedule was not known by the car rental company.
For one night it's better to stay in a different hotel or hosteria, because we had the feeling that this was a one-person room.
Day 2: beautiful stay
Day 3: we visited La Garganta del Diablo and the... read more
