South America's second largest country (after Brazil) has a wealth of stunning scenery to enjoy on a luxury holiday, from the sub-Antarctic regions of Patagonia in the south to sub-tropical jungle in the north. In the west, the impressive Andes (including the highest peak in the western hemisphere, Mt. Aconcagua) run the length of the country and form a natural frontier with neighbouring Chile.
The centre of Argentina is dominated by the Pampas - vast, fertile grasslands - and is also home to Cordoba, and the country's ever more impressive winelands in Mendoza. Finally, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires is a passionate and lively city to visit while enjoying a luxury holiday - it's a melting pot of peoples from Europe and Latin America. And speaking of passion, Argentina is one of the Original Travel team's favourite places, and we know it intimately.
Argentina hosts contrasting landscapes from the vibrancy and colour of Buenos Aires to the cool magnificent glaciers of Patagonia. Buenos Aires is a particular luxury holiday favourite of ours, if not for the opportunities to dabble in some tango dancing but for its historic heritage and contrasting modern docks. The pampas are the fertile plains that house great ranches, otherwise known as Estancias, for horse riding and immersing yourself in endless Argentinean countryside, you can go on a long ride and not even see another soul - bliss. If there is an epic photo opportunity to be had, however, it's of the Iguazu Falls, where Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil meet. Mendoza at the foothills of the Andes is home to some of South America's finest wine, and a tour round the vineyards is a must. However what makes Argentina that much more attractive as a luxury holiday destination - is its wildlife; Egellanic penguins in archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, whales and seals along the Peninsula Valdes and more incredible marine wildlife in the Ibera wetlands.
There is so much to see and do in Argentina that one visit may not suffice, yet with a little help from us we can tailor make a trip of a life time.
