Stretching more than 2,000 miles from north to south, Argentina is a land of incredible diversity. Polychrome mountains and dense cloud forest provide a stunning backdrop for the Spanish colonial cities of the northwest; farther south, Mendoza’s neat patchwork of vineyards is set against the majestic scenery of the snow-covered Andes. Southwest of Buenos Aires, you will encounter breathtaking vistas in the lake country around Bariloche. And at the continent’s southern tip, immense glaciers grind their way through the jagged peaks of Patagonia. Nowadays the country offers a number of stylish inns and estancias, all with individual charm, ideally located to take full advantage of the astonishing natural splendor.

Argentina is south of the equator, so its seasons are reversed, with December to March being summer and June to September winter. Buenos Aires enjoys a Mediterranean-style climate, with January being sufficiently hot and humid to prompt a mass exodus to the beach. The immense expanse of Patagonia is drier, cooler and notoriously windy at its southernmost tip.
