Argentina is a land of extremes, from Patagonia’s majestic glaciers to the colours and culture of Buenos Aires. Situated between the Andes to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Argentina is a land of fiery passion and spectacular beauty, with dramatic mountains, cascading waterfalls at Iguazu, the vast grassy plains of the Pampas, and the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires. This unique country conjures up images of tango dancers, elegant architecture, gauchos on horseback, polo and mouth-watering steaks – it’s easy to see why Argentina is one of the most popular destinations in South America. A main highlight of Argentina is its stunning Lake District region. Bariloche, on Lake Nahuel Huapi has some of the Lake Districts most beautiful scenery. When here, it is possible to take the cable car up to Cerro Otto, the mountain peak that gives brilliant views on to the glacial lakes below.
