Work with our team of professional travel experts and build safe, personalized & authentic, South American Trips for your clients. We can offer your travelers an unrivaled experience customized to their specific needs.

From the sun-baked high-altitude landscapes of the North to the frozen tip of Southern Patagonia, the country’s vast expanse is packed with one jaw-dropping view after another. Just the word Argentina conjures up images of lone gauchos riding across vast plains of the Pampas, of sultry characters locked in tango’s passionate embrace and of exuberant football fans cheering on the infamous Maradona. All of this can indeed be found within Argentina’s broad borders, but this dynamic country goes beyond the stereotypes and delivers much, much more. 

In the endlessly fascinating capital of Buenos Aires you’ll find a vibrant metropolis that keeps up with the pace of any other world capital when it comes to fashion, fiestas (nightlife), art and culture. The city’s nightlife is legendary, and live rock music, folkloric music, tango, electronic music and everything in between can be enjoyed there from dusk till dawn any day of the week.

Discover Unlimited Beauty

In the North you’ll find some of Argentina’s most intact colonial villages and a thriving traditional culture, while in the South wildlife enthusiasts will be captivated by the marine wildlife of Peninsula Valdes. Lovers of the great outdoors are spoiled for choice, with Iguazu Falls and, the lakes and glaciers of Patagonia forming some of the most incredible landscapes in the Americas, while the mighty Andean Mountain range strides down the western reaches of the country creating a wonderland for hikers and climbers. At the foot of these peaks in the West of Argentina are the vineyards of Mendoza where wine flows as freely as water. The perfect azure waters of the Patagonian Lake District give way to ancient glaciers and ice fields at its southern tip, before the frozen world of Antarctica takes hold – and all of this is waiting to be enjoyed, by both serious hikers and day-trippers alike.

Best times to
visit argentina

Argentina has opposite seasons to those in the Northern Hemisphere, with summer falling from December to February and winter from June to August. Given its size, Argentina experiences very different degrees of the seasons, depending on which part of the country you are in. For example, the winter months in Southern Patagonia are a flurry of snow and icy winds. This is not the time for hiking in the southern Andes or seeing the glaciers. However, if you are into snow sports, by all means wrap up warm and hit the slopes. Conversely, the winter months are the best time to travel in the north of the country when the fierce heat of summer abates. The center of the country can be visited at any time, though spring and fall are the prettiest times to visit both Mendoza and Buenos Aires. Spring is the all-out best time of year for nature spotting along the Atlantic Coast of Patagonia.

regional weather:

 

 

Summers are the warmest and wettest season in most of the country except in most of Patagonia where it is the driest season. Winters are normally mild in the north, cool in the center and cold in the southern parts experiencing frequent frost and snow.

practical information

SAFETY

Argentina is generally safe but there are pickpockets, especially in the bigger cities. Be sensible, as you would anywhere in the world. Remember you are foreign and so will stick out already. Don’t wear lots of eye catching jewelry or flash expensive cameras, laptops or iPhones around. Don’t venture into unsafe areas. If traveling by bus, don’t leave belongings unattended.

VACCINATIONS

No mandatory vaccinations are required to visit Argentina. We do recommend visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as check the vaccines and medicines list and visit your doctor (ideally, 4-6 weeks) before your trip to make sure everything is up to date.

VISA

Nationals of the USA and the EU do not require a visa to enter Argentina and are granted a 90 day travel visa upon arrival. Citizens of other countries may require a visa to enter Argentina and it is generally advised that they contact the Argentinean embassy in their home country for information.The Wikipedia Visa Policy of Argentina is a great starting point to begin exploring whether or not any particular nationality might need to obtain a tourist visa to visit Peru.

ELECTRICITY

In Argentina the standard voltage is 220 V. The standard frequency is 50 Hz. If you’d like to learn more about the types of plugs in Argentina, check out the website What Plug Info – Argentina.

FAMILY TRAVEL IN ARGENTINA

Argentina is a great place for family travel and the Argentine people in general are very open-minded and welcoming when it comes to kids. It is one of those countries where children stay up late and eat with the family and you’ll find that restaurants won’t bat an eyelid if your kids pile in for pizza at 11pm – this is the norm and everyone else is doing it too. The country as a whole is very safe with low levels of crime and high safety standards. Argentina will also provide plenty of fresh air and exercise for kids and teens, and taking in such incredible sights as Iguazú Falls, the Perito Moreno Glacier in El Calafate or spotting Southern Right Whales in Peninsula Valdes are bound to make a lasting impression – Argentina is one country where those geography classes will really be brought to life.

GETTING AROUND ARGENTINA

Argentina is BIG; it stretches over 2,175 miles (3,500 km) from north to south. The distances that you’ll need to travel if you want to see all of its incredible sights are pretty hefty. For that reason most people take an internal flight or two in order to save time and avoid lengthy journeys by road. Having said that, Argentina does have an excellent long-distance bus service and, although it may sound a lot, a twenty hour bus journey is perfectly manageable. Long-distance buses in Argentina come in various levels of comfort, but you won’t pay too much more for a fully horizontal bed and waiter service. Hot meals are served on board and it’s a great opportunity to see some of Argentina’s beautiful countryside or to get an idea of the vastness of the plains of Patagonia. In some regions, such as the Northeast or the Patagonia Lake District, it’s a great idea to hire a car and drive through their stunning landscapes independently.
