Gaucho cowboys, the tango, and the romance of Evita may characterise Argentina, but the country has so much more to offer. It presents visitors with a wide variety of cultural attractions and an array of natural wonders including impressive mountain peaks, rare geological formations, pampean plains, tropical jungles and a diverse variety of fauna. Sample the stunning scenery of the lush Lake District, revel in Patagonia’s glacier-carved landscapes, explore painted Andean deserts and city slickers will adore fabulous Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires blossoms in spring, from September to November. The Lake District explodes with colour in autumn when the temperatures are comfortable and the crowds are thin. Patagonia's climate best suits a summer visit.
