The main attraction of Argentina, the second largest country in South America, is its diversity.

Argentina is home to various landscapes and climates – from snow-capped peaks of the Andes including Aconcagua, the highest mountain of South America, to glaciers and desert in Patagonia, vineyards of Mendoza or beaches along the Atlantic coast.

No visit to Argentina is complete without seeing Iguazu Falls, the largest system of waterfalls in the world.

But let’s not forget the exciting cities – lively Buenos Aires, the wine capital Mendoza, charming Cordoba and many more.

From tango to football – Argentina is a country full of passion and you shouldn’t miss it on your next trip to South America.
