Buenos Aires

On the west coast of Argentina is Buenos Aires, the country’s capital which overlooks the Rio de la Plata estuary. It’s home to two of South America's most renowned football teams, Boca Junior and River Plate, between whom there is a long-standing rivalry. Visit their respective stadia and museums to understand the passion and history of these South American titans. An arena of a different stripe sits between these two sporting icons: the Teatro Colón, one of the greatest opera houses in the world. Join us here and you’ll see parts other visitors do not, including the workshops that produce the fabulous costumes and the backstage area. A short walk north will take you to the affluent Recoleta neighbourhood – where you’ll get to stop at the impressive Recoleta Cemetery, last resting place of Eva Peron. In chic, upmarket Palermo Viejo you'll be welcomed into the home of a family who will show you how country bread is made.

Bariloche

In Bariloche lies Nahuel Huapi National Park, a setting of outstanding natural beauty. Ride the Campanario Hill chairlift to the summit to admire spectacular views of the forests, Mount López and vast bodies of water. For a less hair-raising but no less fascinating experience, visit the Chocolate Museum to learn about the history and production of chocolate. We’ll also give you the chance to visit a family ranch on the Patagonian Steppe, the largest desert in Argentina, where the owners have lived for generations. Saddle up and explore the countryside, where you might spot iguanas and grey foxes, before a delicious meal back at the ranch and a sheep-shearing demonstration.

El Calafate

In Argentina's deep south lies El Calafate, an appealing town by Lago Argentino. Named after an indigenous shrub that yields tasty berries, it's said that once bitten you're sure to return to the region. Its picturesque location is reason enough to visit; it is also the perfect place to explore Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. 65 million years in the making, the park is a vista of mountains, lakes and woodland, a geological nirvana with the ice fields of the Perito Moreno Glacier at its centre. Time your visit well and you might witness the 'birth' of an iceberg – where smaller portions of ice break away from the main glacier with a tumultuous cracking sound.
