Our Argentina tour takes you to Patagonia’s windswept plains where gigantic glaciers and granite mountains make you feel like you are on a film set. Head north for Iguazu Falls, nestled in lush Atlantic rainforest; a complete contrast yet equally magnificent. Somewhere in between relax in the peaceful Lake District. Popular with skiers in the winter, it’s stunning in the summer months when clear blue skies are reflected in the pristine lakes fringed with pine forest.
