Argentina’s vast land mass encompasses Patagonian plains, Andean mountains, glacial lakes and pampas grassland, the traditional grazing areas for the nation’s lauded beef cattle. The country is also famous for football, wine, the seductive Tango, and Gauchos.
Its sprawling, cosmopolitan capital, Buenos Aires, centres on the Plaza de Mayo, which is lined with stately 19th century architecture including Casa Rosada, the iconic presidential palace. The bustling city exudes colour, energy, music and glorious gourmet cuisine and colonial architecture. It is also home to many natural wonders like the spellbinding Iguazú Falls.

With world-renowned food, wine to sample and a natural wonderland to explore, a cruise to Argentina is a truly colourful affair.
