Travel to Argentina invokes many superlatives. From Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city to Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Americas, from bustling cities to nature pure, Argentina is so diverse that everyone finds plenty to enjoy. The stereotypes about Argentina become truth when a curious visitor is willing to explore the stories behind the scene. The first rate wines, the football fever, the nostalgia of the tango, the enormity of the Iguazu Falls, the rugged northwest with the Andes mountains and the legend of Che Guevara are just some of the ingredients that make Argentina so unique.
Visiting Buenos Aires is fascinating: the Congress Palace is an imposing neo-classical building located in one extreme of Avenida de Mayo. At the opposite extreme stands the famous pink Government House, the Casa Rosada, from whose balcony Evita Perón called to her people, and the Plaza de Mayo square which can be considered the most important site in Argentine history.
At the center of the Avenida 9 de Julio stands the Obelisk and the Colon Theatre, Buenos Aires opera house. La Boca, the colorful district and settlement of Genoese sailors from the 19th century, inspired famous Argentine painters. Continue to San Telmo, the oldest neighborhood in the city that keeps its old architectural heritage: colonial houses, cobblestone streets and antiques shops. Strolling through the elegant Recoleta and the trendy Palermo can be the best plan for selective shoppers. Finally, visit the restored and most modern part of the city: Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires ‘old port’ with its innovative restaurants and nightlife. At night, dining out at a cozy Tango Show can be the best finale for a visit to the “Paris of the Americas”
The southern extreme of Patagonia offers travel resources unique in the world best organized by a specialized Tour Operator in Argentina. It is a land of bleak, barren beauty, inhabited only by those who have accepted the challenge of singleness and the sole company of nature at its best. Due to its geographical position, it is exposed to strong winds, which is evidenced by low-rise structures and the minimal vegetation in the cities, whose only trees grow bent in the direction of the wind and are thus called ‘flag-trees’ for the shape they adopt. ‘Los Glaciares National Park’ heads the long list of sites that include the mythical Tierra del Fuego and the Islands of the Southern Atlantic Ocean, ending in the captivating ‘white continent’: Antarctica. A visit along these vast lands will make it possible to get in touch with some of the nature’s wonders in constant renewal.
Argentina’s northeastern tip provides a unique view to a stunning panorama of 275 falls surrounded by the luscious virgin jungle of the Iguazu National Park which gives sanctuary to over 200 species of flora and 400 species of birds and wild animals – a splendid environment for countless adventure activities.
The region of Mendoza is must for both wine lovers and climbing fans. Around 100 kms away from the city of Mendoza lays the starting point for any excursion to the top of the Americas – the Aconcagua peak -, which at 6,962 meters is the highest mountain outside Asia. Or, for all amateur and professional wine connoisseurs there are plenty of wine cellars in the region worthy of a wine tasting session.
