Travelling Argentina


Travelling ArgentinaArgentina is a large country, and you are guaranteed a rich and life-affirming trip wherever you choose to visit. Argentina boasts a wide range of breath-taking landscapes, from sub-tropical rainforests, waterfalls and canyons; to mountains, volcanoes and valleys; to awe-inspiring glaciers.

The first stop for many travellers visiting Argentina is Buenos Aires. Flying into Buenos Aires International Airport, you may be travelling on, via Buenos Aires Domestic Airport, to other locations within Argentina. Whether you intend to stay in Buenos Aires itself, or are just passing through on your way to another part of Argentina, safe, comfortable airport transfers are a must-book for your holiday in Argentina.


Travelling ArgentinaA trip to Patagonia, in the south, will find you at the southernmost point of South America. The city of Ushuaia, located in Tierra del Fuego, proudly holds the title of the most southerly city on Earth, and from there it is possible to find a last-minute cruise to Antarctica, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Patagonia is also the home to Los Glaciares National Park, in Santa Cruz, where tourists flock to see the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. For wildlife enthusiasts, further north, a visit to the Peninsula Valdés will allow you to observe a range of sea mammals, from Southern Right whales, to elephant seals, Magellanie penguins, sea lions and orca whales.

San Carlos de Bariloche, in the Río Negro province at the foot of the Andes, is famous for skiing. The Cerro Catedral is one of the most important centres for skiing in South America. In addition to its enticing snow sports, the area is also a hive for outdoor activities from trekking and climbing, to sight-seeing and, with its plethora of spectacular lakes, a selection of water sports.


Travelling ArgentinaIn the north of the country, on the border with Paraguay and Brazil, you will find the tremendous Iguazú Falls. Dense forests featuring exquisite flora and fauna line the Iguazú River. Two hundred and seventy five waterfalls plunge cascades of water over seventy feet, the spray lit in rainbows against an incredible tropical backdrop. You can even experience the Falls by helicopter, which can only be described as simply jaw-dropping.

Fifty kilometres north of Colón, is the El Palmar National Park, which houses the last samples of Yatay palm trees on the planet. They are over eight centuries old.

For the less botanically-enthusiastic traveller, the capital of Misiones, Posadas, is not far from the Iguazú Falls. A more relaxed city than Buenos Aires, Posadas features museums, artisan markets and picturesque squares along a river coast, all in a gorgeous sub-tropical climate.

Córdoba, Cuyo and The North

Travelling Argentina

For pleasant valley landscapes, small towns and to enjoy antiques and cave paintings, Córdoba is the ideal area of Argentina for the rural-loving traveller. Similarly, Cuyo, comprising Mendoza, La Roija and San Juan, is a mountainous region and home to the 6,959 metre Aconcagua Mountain in the Andes.

It is also Argentina’s wine country, so a visit to Cuyo must undoubtedly include a trip to Mendoza to sample the wine, fruit and local delicacies of the region.

Buenos Aires

Of course, for the energetic young traveller, nothing can possibly beat the thrill of Buenos Aires’ nightlife. After a meal of possibly the best steak you will ever taste, you will still have a few hours to wait before the night really gets going. A night out in Buenos Aires begins after two am, and will continue until well after the dawn. It will be easy to find yourself burning the candle at both ends, as you then seek to explore the charming streets of the city by day.

The architecture of Buenos Aires is strongly European in feel, owing to its Spanish colonial heritage. The shopping (at the Palermo Viejo) and cuisine in the city are also very fine, and there is also a range of less conventional things to keep you entertained on your Buenos Aires break. For example, visit Tierra Santa, the world’s first religious theme park, to witness the half-hourly coming of a giant plastic Christ. Seriously.

Home Time

Once you have feasted your senses on the wonders of Argentina, leaving for the airport is likely to be an experience fraught with longing and regret. Buenos Aires International Airport does not have a railway station connected to the airport, and so ensuring a safe transfer to Buenos Aires International Airport will be a valuable and stress-free choice, as you struggle to fight off the encroaching post-holiday blues. Private airport transfers will transport you in peace, as you gaze adoringly out of the window, back to reality, with a wealth of unforgettable memories behind you.

Whether you plan to experience Argentina as a backpacker’s paradise, or enjoy this wonderful country from the comfort of a quality hotel, you are guaranteed the trip of a lifetime. There are few countries on earth with such beautiful sights as to be found throughout the vastly different regions of Argentina. It is a place where nature and culture come together to offer the ultimate travelling experience.
