Argentina

If countries could walk, Argentina would swagger. Covering an area of over a million square miles, it encompasses the richness and diversity of an entire continent.

From the elegant cobblestone boulevards, sensual tango halls, century-old cafes and designer boutiques of Buenos Aires, Argentina unfolds through thousands of miles of flat pampa into the rolling sierras of Cordoba and the vineyards of Mendoza before soaring into the Andes – the country´s impressively rugged border with Chile.

To the north, mountains, cactus forests and lunar landscapes give way to subtropical jungle, wetlands and some of the continent’s most stunning waterfalls.

To the south, Patagonia embraces snow-capped peaks, crystalline lakes and immense glaciers. Adventure here abounds – imagine scuba diving with penguins, heliskiing immaculate powder, fly fishing brown trout, or finishing a day of white water kayaking with a night of sleep in a treehouse, resting under the skies of one of the great unspoilt wildernesses of the world.

What people say

  • We were delighted with the trip we have just completed to Brazil and Argentina. We walked down Copacabana beach, watched a tapir swim past our canoe in the Pantanal, were submerged in the Iguazu falls, conquered desert and vineyards in northwest Argentina, experienced a snowstorm in the Andes, fed Cayman off horseback and enjoyed a tango show in probably the finest city in South America. A truly memorable experience: we have no hesitation in recommending Plan South America.
  • I cannot tell you what an amazing time we are having...how did you manage it?!
