Argentina Day Tours, Attractions & Excursions

“Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” moved nations’ hearts as it hit number one on various chart lists when it was first released in 1976 by Julie Convington, and when it was re-released by Madonna in 1996. Known for its vast and diverse landscapes, the sultry tango dance, soccer, wine, and festive energy, Argentina is a country worth discovering!

Destinations In Argentina

Topping the list of destinations in your Argentina trip must be the country’s vibrant capital, Buenos Aires. Known for its food, culture, history, and fiery energy, Buenos Aires offers memorable day trips and experiences for all those who wander through it.

Buenos Aires province has an incredible list of gorgeous beaches for travelers to enjoy. Mar del Plata is one of its most famous and visited beaches, or you can move along the coast to Pinamar to find a quieter, more peaceful ocean to revel in.

Nature lovers will find their jaws dropping at the awe-inspiring sight of Iguazu National Park waterfalls. The UNESCO World Heritage Site lies in the jungle bordering Argentina and Brazil and has claimed its title as one of the most breathtaking waterfalls in the world.

“The end of the world”, Ushuaia, is the southernmost tip of South America, and Argentina. It has gained popularity for being the departure point to reach Antarctica. The winter wonderland makes all of your Planet Earth dreams come true by offering tours to see penguins, sea lions, and fur seals.

No Argentinian bucket list would be complete without mentioning Patagonia. This region of Argentina is shared with Chile and separated by the iconic Andes Mountains. With trekking, glaciers, and wine tasting, these Jurassic Park-like landscapes have something for everyone.

Popular Argentina Tours

Discovering Argentina’s agricultural lifestyle is to discover Argentina’s heritage and culture. Taking a gaucho day tour will introduce you to the cowboys of South America. Visit a ranch and their livestock all while shouting, “yee-haw!”.

Buenos Aires walking city tour is a special way to discover the cosmopolitan capital. Get the knowledge from a local about the city’s art, history, culture, and architecture while discovering golden nuggets, only an Argentinian would know, in between.

Buenos Aires has a strong European influence and is often compared to cities in Spain and France. One foot into Recoleta and the manicured gardens and lavish townhouses will have you questioning what part of the world you’re in. Plaza de Mayo has the same effect for all those who pass through its cobbled roads.

FAQs

Traveling a foreign country can be intimidating and especially daunting if there is a language barrier. Even when your tours are in English, it can still be overwhelming. Here are a few frequently asked questions about Argentina Tours.

When Should I Go To Argentina?

If you’re looking for a summer holiday then visiting Argentina between December and February is the time of year you’re after. However, spring (October- mid-December) and autumn (April- mid-June) offers more moderate temperatures, lower prices, and fewer crowds.

Is It Safe To Travel To Argentina?

Argentina is one of the safest Latin American countries and is a wonderful place to travel. However, tourists need to be cautious of petty theft crimes, like pickpocketing. This can be avoided by being ‘street smart’. For example, keep valuables in a secure bag rather than in your pockets.

How Do You Get From Buenos Aires To Iguazu Falls?

The quickest and most comfortable way to get to Iguazu Falls from Buenos Aires is by flying. Flights leave from Aeroparque Internacional Jorge Newbery AEP, Buenos Aires, and land in Cataratas International Airport IGR. There are roughly six to eight flights per day.

It’s certainly hard to find a comparable tour anywhere else in the world, mainly because of this unique geographical setting. When near the Beagle Channel in Argentina or Chile, it’s definitely worth considering taking the day to see the southernmost parts of our planet that most ordinary people don’t get to see.

This Buenos Aires to Uruguay Ferry is a worthwhile experience for anyone wishing to tick an extra box on their South American holiday. Aside from the thrill of riding a slow and easy ferry, there’s also the option to take your car along if you really want to (at extra cost). But the best way to take the Buenos Aires ferry to Uruguay is as part of a guided day tour, as it saves you the hassle of arranging the tickets (which come included).

It is roughly a 100-square-mile ice formation and represents the world’s third-largest reserve of fresh water in the form of an ice field. Tourists can visit the glacier and experience its wonder in a number of ways. This includes simply observing it from a series of constructed walkways from afar. Visitors can also opt to hike up the glacier on a trekking tour. The closest major town is El Calafate, which can be accessed by airplane or road. The glacier experience proves popular with nature enthusiasts and couples looking for a romantic memory to share.
