Visual Adventure: Argentina

Nellie Huang September 10, 2013 2

As diverse as it is vast and impressive, Argentina is several countries packed into one — from the Andean mountains in the northern corners to the flamboyant capital of Buenos Aires at its heart and the frozen glaciers of Patagonia across the southern reaches. Whether it is culture, good food, or trekking you’re after, Argentina rarely disappoints. It’s impossible to cover different parts of this massive country in one post, so I’ll let my photos do the talking for now.

    These photos are awesome – I work on itineraries to Argentina, and spend so much of my day drooling over them and wishing I could visit!

    Well, there is far more than that typical circuit:
    Long sandy beaches along Buenos Aires province, full of young people dancing in the summer season; lots of National Parks with breathtaking views to go trekking and animal spotting; Route 40 to drive along in a 4×4; water sports in the lakes and skiing in the winter; horse back riding in the hills in the centre of the country ; food and wine tasting – spa included- in vinyards and wineries; jungle, desert, country life in the “estancias” with the “gauchos”…and of course, night life in Buenos Aires -the city that never sleeps!

    PS: You were really unluky to see the Iguazu falls with little water. They are still impressive anyway! One of the Natural wonders of the world. A must go of course.
