5 Unique Experiences You Can’t Miss on Your Trip to Argentina

From its jungles and snow-capped mountains to its sophisticated urban centers and expansive wine country, Argentina is a traveler’s paradise. You can drink world-class wines or water directly from a glacier-fed stream. Dance the tango or see an authentic gaucho cowboy. If you get the chance, you’ll never regret exploring this country’s diverse culture that delights every taste and sense of adventure.

Here are five unique experiences you can’t miss on your trip to Argentina.

1. Buenos Aires

The “Paris of South America” and the birthplace of Tango is a must-visit at least once in your lifetime. As the capital and largest city of Argentina, Buenos Aires is a vibrant place packed with things to see, smell, taste, and explore. The nightlife is wild, the architecture and landscapes are breath-taking, the cuisine is incredible, and the people are generous and kind.

Another major plus: the U.S. dollar goes far in Argentina! You’re also very likely to find a ton of free things to see and do—from yoga and Tango classes to live music.

2. Iguazu Falls

Who doesn’t want to see the largest waterfall system on Earth in person? This magnificent spectacle on the border of the Argentinian province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Parana draws in more than a million visitors a year for good reason. It’s truly too beautiful and moving to properly describe in words.

3. Patagonia

With coasts on three oceans, the Andes mountains, deserts, glaciers, lakes, and grasslands all within its borders, Patagonia is one of Argentina’s most awe-inspiring regions and a true contender for one of the most beautiful places in the world. Nature enthusiasts and photographers will especially enjoy this picturesque destination.

  • Things to do: Trekking, skiing, hiking, fishing, whale watching, horseback riding, kayaking, and more.
  • Places to visit: Bariloche, El Calafate, El Chalten, Perito Moreno Glacier, Cerro Torre, and the Fitzroy.

4. Mendoza

Argentina has perfected the art of quality wine-making at high altitudes, and Mendoza is the heart of it all. Less than a two-hour flight from Buenos Aires, this cosmopolitan city is one of the great wine capitals of the world, with more than 1,500 wineries spread out through the main wine regions of Lujan de Cuyo, Valle de Uco, and Maipu.

5. La Puna

Vast canyons, mountains, salt lakes, and volcanoes make up La Puna, aka Argentina’s northwest region. This wilderness area is a little more off-the-beaten-path compared to other areas of Argentina and is full of natural wonders you’ll never forget.
