Argentina Attractions: Buenos Aires, Ushuaia, Cruise, Beagle Channel, Cape Horn, Wulaia Bay, Murray Channel, Nassau Bay, Magellanic Forest, Garibaldi Fiord
Argentina’s extended and exuberant natural beauty is an invitation to discover it. Its historical and cultural legacy is remarkable: from the footprints of its native inhabitants, and up to the roots of the immigrants’ customs, with archaeological ruins that staged different battles in the past.
Visitors are fascinated by Buenos Aires environment, the different personalities of each neighbourhood, the warmness of its people and the wide range of commercial offers. Iguazú is the land of large rivers, humid tropic, red earth and a virgin forest full of huge trees and extraordinary flora and fauna. Mendoza, birthplace of Malbec wines, lies at the foot of the imposing Andes Mountain Range. Millenary silent forests with native vegetation extend to the banks of crystalline waters in Patagonia. On mountain tops, nature overflows in granite needles and icy fields brimming with glaciers in lakes of unique beauty.
