Round up the best of Argentina – the wine, the fishing, the tango, the mountaineering, the skiing, the literature, the beef, the architecture, the clubbing – and you have the building blocks for one of the most exciting journeys you’ll ever take. No joke. While so many things in Argentina are exciting, some things are better defined as ‘mind blowing.’ We’ve pulled together a collection of the latter. Put as many on your To Do list as possible.
At the southernmost tip of South America, Chile and Argentina are dramatic places punctuated by craggy mountains, sparkling with sandy coastlines and rippling with turquoise lakes and lush forests. There is no bad time to visit, but make a trip from June through September and the snow-capped, volcanic Andes that dip and soar along their shared border are blanketed with snow, their powder-coated slopes offering some of the best skiing in the world.
