When is the best time to visit?
Since Argentina is a vast country, with climates ranging from the warm North to the icy South, when to visit really depends on where you plan on going. But as a general rule of thumb, travelers should aim to visit from April to June (fall) or from September to December (spring). Learn more
Where should I go in Argentina?
City life in Buenos Aires is a constant blur and a must-see for any visitor interested in soaking up the exciting culture of this country. Argentina boasts a host of natural splendors as well, from the Iguazú Falls in the subtropical north to the icy beauty of Perito Moreno Glacier and the Andean salt flats. Whatever destination travelers prefer, most will agree on one thing: there’s nothing like a well-grilled Argentinian steak accompanied by a glass of local red wine. Learn more
How many days do I need?
To truly experience Argentina, and eat your way through their diverse cuisine, plan to spend at least 10 days in this high-energy country. Learn more
Getting around in Argentina
Given its size, most itineraries in Argentina include domestic flights that take several hours. Renting a car and setting off on a road trip is also a great way to explore Argentina, though most travelers stick to regions for their road trips, and fly between regions. Learn more

This epic 10-day adventure in Argentine Patagonia starts with a trip to the "end of the world" at Tierra del Fuego, where you'll explore wilderness parks and share cultural exchanges with local farmers and fishermen. Then head north to El Calafate, home of awe-inspiring glaciers like Perito Moreno, before ending the trip at El Chaltén to conquer the hiking trails around iconic Mount Fitz Roy.
Northern Argentina is home to attractions that range from painted mountains and vast salt flats to colonial cities and rich Indigenous culture. You'll experience all of it over 15 days, during which you'll support local communities as you participate in culinary workshops, visit rural villages, and tour ancient ruins. Tango shows in Buenos Aires and a traditional gaucho barbecue in the Pampas countryside complement this cultural exploration.
Fifteen days in Argentina gives you enough time to explore the highlights, including Buenos Aires, Iguazú Falls, and Patagonia. Or spend less time in Patagonia and opt to ride horseback in Mendoza's wine country. And if looking to add another country to your list, you can spend four nights in Uruguay's Montevideo on a multi-country experience.

Where to start? I hope I can properly express how incredible our trip to Argentina was because of the planing and care Natalia provided.
