Why travel to Argentina?

Argentina is a country rich in culture and natural beauty, making it an ideal destination for travellers looking for an authentic and adventurous photography experience.

One of the most popular destinations in Argentina is Buenos Aires, the capital city that is often referred to as the “Paris of South America.”

Where to explore vibrant neighborhoods like la Boca, Recoleta, Palermo and San Telmo, experience the energetic Tango culture, and try delicious Argentine cuisine, including empanadas and steak.

Among the country’s top destinations are the famous Iguazú Falls, in the Argentine Mesopotamia region. One of the largest waterfalls in the world, located on the border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

The falls are surrounded by lush rainforest, with exotic fauna, and offer breathtaking views.

Another must-see destination in Argentina is Patagonia, a region known for its stunning natural and remote landscapes. Visitors can explore the majestic Andes Mountains, hike through the beautiful National Parks, or even take a boat tour to see glaciers up close.

On the Andes side some of the most popular places are El Chaltén, at the foot of the imposing Fitz Roy Mountain, and Calafate, a base for visiting the Perito Moreno Glacier.

While on the Chubut coast is the Península Valdés, a unique destination for watching whales that stop in the area each year from May to October to breed, as well as penguins, lions and elephant seals.etc.

No less than previous destinations, North Argentina offers travellers a unique and enchanting experience. Home to diverse landscapes, ancient ruins, and vibrant cities, this region is a treasure trove for those seeking an off-the-beaten-path adventure.

Salta is the base point for most of the trips to the NOA (Argentine Northwest), a city known for its well-preserved colonial architecture and charming cobblestone streets.

For nature lovers, the Quebrada de Humahuaca is a must-see. This UNESCO World Heritage site stretches for 155 kilometers, offering breathtaking views of colorful rock formations, deep canyons, and ancient settlements. Travellers can hike through the dramatic landscapes, visit indigenous communities, and witness captivating sunsets over the mountains.

Its stunning panoramas include the surreal landscape of the Serranía de Hornocal, known as the “14-color mountain” due to its spectrum of vibrant hues.
