Argentina Experience a Custom Argentina Tour Designed by the Experts in Luxury Travel Let’s plan my trip From sweeping wine country, vibrant cities, and spectacular landscapes, Argentina is a country full of passion. Argentina also has a very different feel than other South American countries. While the majority of South America was colonized by the Spanish and Portuguese in the 16th and 17th centuries, Argentina saw most of its immigration later, in the late 19th century, mainly Italian and Spanish. Because of how recent this was, Argentina still has a very strong European vibe, with an especially Italian feel, making for some great pastas, pizzas, and gelato. Because of how large it is – the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world – Argentina has an incredible variety of things to see and do. Most visits to Argentina start in the dynamic capital of Buenos Aires. The best example of South America meets Europe, you will find French-inspired tango, Italian-inspired pizzas and gelato, and Spanish-inspired ‘picada’ plates at nearly every restaurant, all mixed with a South American passion that makes this city a unique cultural experience. For wine lovers, Argentine wine country, especially Mendoza, is a definite must, famous especially for its rich Malbec. And the natural wonders are unmatched, from the imposing Iguazú Falls to the icy glaciers and wide expanses of Patagonia, Argentina is the perfect destination for any nature lover. If you’re looking for culture, adventure, nature, great food and wine, or a mix of any or all of the above, Argentina is definitely a great destination to add to your bucket list.
