Argentina. Stretching for 3,500km from the sub-tropical North to the southernmost tip of South American, Argentina is a land and sea of incredible diversity. It is the world's eighth largest country, boasting the tallest mountains in the western hemisphere; sub tropical rainforests and the magnificent Iguazu Falls in the north; to the Valdes Peninsula, whose Southern Right Whales, Orcas, Penguins and Sealions provide one of the marine highlights of the Continent.
