A South American gem brimming with unbridled wilderness and freedom, Argentina is a vibrant land where untouched natural wonders and dynamic urban vibes come together perfectly. In the eclectic Bueno Aires, tango the night away, try local cuisine at an 18th-century eatery and grab a tipple or two at one of the posh speakeasies. Away from the city, pursue your wine fantasies at Mendoza, which produces award-winning Malbecs, and ride a 4WD up the mountain for a private cooking class with master chef Francis Mallmann, who will introduce you to the deliciousness of Argentinean-style grilled cuisine.
A host of unspeakably beautiful sights also await; hike up close to the Iguazu Falls, one of the planet’s most awe-inspiring waterfalls, scale the spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier and explore a massive salt desert in a Movitrack Truck. Then embark on your wildlife adventures by going on a voyage to watch whales, or picnic near penguins and watch a local condor expert work his magic — you can even stay on a working farm and roam around horses and alpacas. Home to multiple discoveries of gigantic dinosaurs, Argentina also has the most complete continental fossil collection from the Triassic Period, which can be admired at the Ischigualasto Provincial and Talampaya National Parks.
