Argentina Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Argentina in a way like no other. Argentina is a giant of South America, stretching from the Tropic of Capricorn to the fringes of Antarctica. It’s filled with a myriad of landscapes from snowy mountains and icy glaciers, to steamy jungles and sun-drenched vineyards. It’s also a land of passionate culture, where Europe meets Latin America, from the vibrant tango halls of Buenos Aires to the gauchos riding horseback through the Pampas. When you take an Argentina holiday with Trafalgar, we’ll reveal the contrasting wonders of the country. Board an eco-train to see Iguazu Falls, the world’s largest waterfall system, or venture south to discover the Perito Moreno Glacier, one of Patagonia’s largest glaciers. Ride the Campanario Hill chairlift for sweeping views of Bariloche’s mountains, or cruise across Ushuaia Bay to spot Magellanic penguins. Wherever you go, you’ll be met with incredible cuisine and hospitality. Take the lead from the friendly Argentinians and indulge in feasts of Argentinian steak and Malbec wine. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
