When Do You Want To Go?
Our Northern Argentina itinerary is the perfect way to discover some of Argentina’s most dramatic sights and scenery in a 9-day holiday.
You will start in the tango filled streets of Buenos Aires before heading the see the almighty Iguazu Falls. After this, you will head to one of our favourite areas of Argentina, Salta & the Northwest. The Andes Mountains create some superb and dramatic scenery in this area but unlike Patagonia, you will see almost desert-like scenery here with cactuses and the odd huge saltwater lagoon for good measure. It is almost like a scene from another planet.
