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). Learn more
Where should I 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. Learn more
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. Learn more
Getting around in Argentina
Given its size, most itineraries in Argentina include domestic flights that take several hours. Renting a car and setting off on a road trip is also a great way to explore Argentina, though most travelers stick to regions for their road trips, and fly between regions. Learn more
This 16-day itinerary combines cultural and historical highlights of Argentina, Chile, and Peru, from city life and wine tastings to the Incan Empire and natural scapes. Walk the bustling streets of Buenos Aires and taste Malbec in the wineries of Mendoza. Tour Santiago de Chile and gaze upon the snow-capped Andes. Immerse yourself in the Cusco region and discover the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu.
Experience the sophistication of Buenos Aires, the mesmerizing force of the Iguazu Falls and the spectacular glaciers of El Calafate in a single trip. This 12-day itinerary travels to Argentina's historic capital and then across Patagonia, seamlessly blending urban bustle, outdoor adventure, and small-town charm.
The capital of Argentina is a Latin American/European hybrid like no other city on this earth. Buenos Aires' rich culture is exemplified in its neoclassical and baroque architecture, the cobbled streets of its old neighborhoods, and the visceral passion of the city's Porteño soccer fans. Get the best of this concrete jungle on a 5-day tour which explores the city and indulges in its rising food scene, not to mention allows time for tango dancing and horseback riding with real gaucho cowboys.
This adventurous two-week trip combines the best destinations Argentina has to offer with a range of outdoor activities and wildlife. On the itinerary are two cities (Buenos Aires and Ushuaia), a UNESCO-listed peninsula, and two national parks known for glaciers and hiking trails. There's also whale watching, snorkeling with sea lions, and a visit to South America's largest Magellanic Penguin colony for the ultimate photo ops.
In this nature-focused adventure, you get the best of both Chilean and Argentine Patagonia. First, travel to far south to Punta Arenas for a visit to an island inhabited by penguins. Next, spend a day exploring Torres del Paine - one of the world's most beautiful national parks. Top your Patagonian experience off with a glacier walk over the most impressive mass of ice in the region, Perito Moreno. Then, journey north for a visit to Iguazú Falls, the largest network of waterfalls in the world. These falls are located on the border of Argentina and Brazil, so you'll get to experience the majesty of the falls from both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. Finally, it's off to Buenos Aires where you'll enjoy some city time in the "Paris of South America" before your journey home.
