Ushuaia and Rio Grande are the two main towns with awesome scenery, walks and fishing as the main attractions. Just 18km west of Ushuaia is the Tierra del Fuego National Park, Argentina’s only coastal national park which is full of rivers, lakes and glaciers, with great trekking and wildlife-spotting opportunities. The Northwest Home to abundant natural attractions and atmospheric relics from the pre-Columbian and colonial past, this is the more ‘traditional’ part of Argentina. Salta is one of the most popular cities in this area and is the most well preserved colonial city in the country, with hundreds of archaeological sites, subtropical forests and desert canyons. Bariloche The southern Lake District of San Carlos de Bariloche is surrounded by serene lakes, amazing glaciers and forested mountains. In Bariloche there are shopping areas and casinos, as well as activities such as hiking, mountaineering and skiing. You can also cross the Lake District, known as the ‘Lake Crossing’ by travelling on numerous boats and buses, to reach the other side into Chile. This journey is full of stunning scenery. Mendoza Sitting in the foothills of the Andes, one of the main reasons people visit Mendoza is for the wine with plenty of vineyards scattered around the countryside. It is a great place for activities such as hiking, horse riding, rafting and skiing in the winter months. It is also a regular stopover for mountain climbers on their way to Aconcagua.
