Stretching over 3,000 kilometres from north to south, the vast country of Argentina offers an endless variety of natural and cultural attractions. It contains both the highest point (the Cerro Aconcagua mountain in the Andes) and the lowest point in the Americas (the Laguna del Carbon salt lake. Argentina's dramatic history matches its scenery perfectly. Italian, Spanish, German and even Welsh immigrants have all left their mark on the eighth largest country in the world. With a rich mix of natural beauty, cities and culture, Argentina holidays offer a wealth of exciting experiences.
Argentina holidays offer year-round attractions. In winter Argentina has some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world from July to September; while the warmer weather is perfect for outdoor activities like hiking and fishing from October until June. Argentina's time zone is GMT-3/-4 and the flight time from London is around 14 hours. Efficient and comfortable long distance buses service the whole country, with internal flights also available.
The home of tango, Buenos Aires is the nation's capital and offers a vast choice of activities and accommodation. Restaurants offering some of the best wine and beef in the world line the city's Parisian-styled streets, in addition to theatres, clubs, cafes and Milongas (tango venues). Due west of Buenos Aires is the slow-paced wine region of Mendoza, where travellers can try local wines and visit various international and local vineyards. An excursion to the southern tip of Argentina offers hiking through the unspoilt nature of Tierra del Fuego and the nearby Glacier of Perito Moreno. Hugging the Andes, the mountain resort town of Bariloche has a distinctly Germanic feel, with high-class hotel accommodation, dreamlike lakes and scrumptious chocolate.
