There are so many reasons to visit Argentina – it’s a country of stunning nature, wonderful food and drink, a very strong heritage and culture, and warm, welcoming people. What’s not to like?
From the infectious energy and beautiful architecture of Buenos Aires with it’s mouth-watering food scene (yes, the steak really is the best in the world) to the jaw-dropping majestic peaks and serene grasslands of Patagonia, it really is a country that has everything.
I was there for just under 3 weeks and even though I saw a lot, there was a whole lot I didn’t see. I spent time in Buenos Aires, the far north (Salta) and the far south (Patagonia) and these three areas are the focus of my photo essay. I would love to go back to see Cordoba, the Lake District and Mendoza. Argentina can be quite expensive – see How to budget for Argentina for some top tips on saving money.
As well as the fantastic food and drink scene, Buenos Aires has some fabulous street art, particularly in the La Boca area. Salta has some wonderful churches and beautiful architecture.
Trekking from El Chalten to see Mount Fitz Roy was definitely one of the best treks I have ever done, there are many different routes leaving from El Chalten and the scenery is truly stunning. Perito Moreno Glacier was equally stunning – it blew my mind!
For more details of my trip, the following blog posts tell the story of my adventure:
I travelled solo to Buenos Aires and then joined a G Adventures small group tour.
