Argentina

Argentina is a vast country with terrain encompassing Andes mountains, glacial lakes and Pampas grassland, the traditional grazing ground of its famed beef cattle. Its natural beauty is rich in diversity from tropical rainforests, thundering waterfalls, high desert plateaux and multicoloured canyons, to the great wilderness of Patagonia and its never ending glaciers. 

The country is known for tango, steak and football, but also for its passionate people and superb food and wine. Its big, cosmopolitan capital, Buenos Aires, is one of many stylish cities this alluring country has to offer. Visitors can also explore pre-Inca ruins and colonial towns, Jesuit remains and traditional cattle ranches. Nature lovers will be delighted at the sight of the Southern right whales, sea lions and Magellanic penguins, and the pristine wetlands of the north-east. 

Let Star Travel show you all of this and more.
