Argentina is a land of magical extremes, including sublimely wild landscapes from the Andes to Tierra del Fuego and the refined, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, “Paris of the South.” For the cultured traveller, the capital offers excellent museums and concerts, shopping to rival any city in Europe, tango, a young arts and music scene, stunning architecture…and fantastic dining that goes far beyond the perfect steaks Argentina is famous for. For active modernity in a colonial setting, visit Cordoba in the central pampas; or venture into the Andean foothills to find Mendoza, a charming city nestled between rich wine country and Cerro Aconcagua, America’s highest peak. Argentina’s amazing scenery ranges from the breathtaking mists of Iguaza Falls in the tropical north to the lonely Land’s End Lighthouse in the south. Gallop across the infinite green expanse of the Pampas—home of the proud gaucho—or sail towards the massive, steadily advancing wall of Perito Moreno in Patagonia’s Los Glaciares National Park, where the silence is only broken by the occasional sound of falling ice. From the exclusive beaches of Mar del Plata, where the high society of Buenos Aires goes to relax, to the solitude of Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost town, discover the contrasting cultural refinement and natural wonder of beautiful Argentina.
