Nature has favored Argentina with some of the most lavish and legendary scenery on the continent. Thunderous Iguassu Falls, the stunning alpine scenery of the Lake District and the jagged mountains of Patagonia that stretch south to Tierra del Fuego – all beg discovery.
The second largest country in South America, Argentina’s northern regions are blessed with an abundance of stellar attributes such as established vineyards, the Amazon’s pristine Yacutinga Reserve, and the dramatic Andean deserts dotted with Indian villages.
The great central plains of the Pampas hold safe the traditions of the old Wild West as the famed gauchos, Argentine cowboys, continue to practice a way of life that has all but vanished elsewhere. Argentina also claims high marks on the international polo scene. The Peninsula Valdes encompasses vital habitats for penguins, sea elephants, guanacos, rheas and whales.
Few cities can outdo Buenos Aires for style and sophistication with its architecture reminiscent of Paris. City lovers will appreciate the vitality of its nightlife and the wealth of museums, cultural venues, elegant boutiques and cafes. It is also the birthplace of the passionate tango dance.
Argentina’s variety and vitality engage travelers from the very beginning. Experience this majestic country on a luxury Argentina tour with Big Five.
