Framed by the grand peaks of the Andes Mountains in the east and the waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the west, Argentina is one of Latin America’s most geographically striking and culturally vibrant hiking destinations. Here, walkers can explore the rich diversity of plant life in the Patagonian steppe, home to some of the world’s most varied topography, where rocky terrain is highlighted by low-lying bright green cushion plants and the gently swaying limbs of native evergreen pimento trees.
Pass through stretches of Argentina’s legendary Ruta 40 (Route 40), circling through the region’s quaint network of frontier towns that only a handful of tourists ever experience. Peruse local shops that offer handcrafted, tanned leather handbags, jackets, and homespun knitwear or warm up with a gourd of locally produced yerba mate herbal tea.
Experience the natural wonder of Los Glaciares—Argentina’s Glacier National Park—where hundreds of glaciers tumble into the park’s icy blue lakes throughout the year beneath the jagged 11,000-foot peaks of the Monte Fitz Roy mountain range. Here, walkers can explore numerous viewing spots on foot, or saddle up on horseback for a guided riding excursion across the gentle sloping hills of the Sierra Baguales range where wild guanacos can be often seen feeding on the brush.
Perito Moreno Glacier
Spanning over one-hundred square miles and constantly expanding, the Perito Moreno Glacier stands nearly three-hundred feet above the waters of Lago Argentino. The area is home to several guided paths that offer hikers a variety of viewing spots where to witness huge pieces of ice break off the glacier and into the bright blue waters below.
The gaucho or mestizo culture of European and Indigenous American cowboys has held a place of prominence in Argentina for over four centuries, notably in local musical and theatrical performances featuring zapotéo dancers and clacking boleadoras.
Stroll Through Buenos Aires
The busy streets and ancient sidewalks of Buenos Aires still abound in beautiful architecture, open air cafes and a calendar of outdoor festivals. View original works by celebrated Argentinian artists like Antonio Berni, Rachel Forner, and Jorge De La Vega at MALBA, the Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires before a late lunch of fresh baked empanadas prepared by one of numerous sidewalk food vendors.
