Spanning almost half the length of South America, Argentina encompasses an incredible range of natural environments and experiences.
In the far North the thundering waterfalls and steamy sub-tropical forests of Iguazu are home to a wealth of species and spectacular breath-taking scenery. Condors soar above the highest mountain peaks in the Western Hemisphere, within sight of elegant colonial cities and acclaimed wine lands of Mendoza. Seemingly endless flat expanses of the pampas are home to the legendary figure of the 'gaucho' (the Argentine cowboy) and the strange ostrich-like rhea.
Patagonia also offers some of the World's best trekking amid the peaks of the magnificent Torres Del paine as well as wonderful whale watching opportunities at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Peninsula Valdes. This is a breeding ground for large numbers of Southern Right Whales and a hunting ground for Orca, drawn to the peninsula by young elephant seals and southern sealions. Watching orcas hunt close to the shore must truly be one of Nature's most brutal yet awe-inspiring spectacles, the image of which has made an indelible mark on many of us who have watched this on the BBC series Blue Planet and Ocean Giants.
