Help Me Discovering the Best Offbeat Places in Argentina

Help Me Discovering the Best Offbeat Places in Argentina

I can barely contain my excitement. At the end of January I’ll be off to Buenos Aires and will spend a month in Argentina.

For now, I’m reading the very good Rough Guide, studying maps, searching different transportation options and trying to figure out a tentative itinerary. And I’m facing the same difficulties I experienced when I visited Brazil: having to cope with a huge country and enormous distances.

One month seems like a lot, but I don’t want to rush from one place to the other, and will focus on Buenos Aires and some National Parks (likely a few between Lanin, Los Alerces, Perito Moreno, Los Glaciares, Nahuel Lapi, Tierra del Fuego) in the South.

What’s sure is that I want to see the glaciers and their blue shades. Sand and the desert have been a passion of mine since I was a teen-ager, and in the latest years I discovered a deep fascination with ice.

As I did in Japan, I’d like my journey to be only marginally planned so that I can follow my heart more than a schedule. Besides the landmarks and must-see, I wish to see unusual places and that’s where you come in.

    That’s great that you’re going to Argentina! Iguazu Falls is amazing if you have time to go there, and Buenos Aires can keep you busy for weeks. I loved shopping in San Telmo and all of the colorful houses in La Boca.

      Saying that I’m happy is an understatement. Thanks for the tips, Julie. I’ve ben to the Iguazu Falls already, when I visited Brazil, but I’ll definitely explore San Telmo and La Boca. I must have seen a few photos of the colorful houses but didn’t know in which area of Buenos Aires they were.

    I highly recommend putting aside 4 to 5 days to visit Tierra del Fuego. From Ushuaia, there’s a great ship that takes you on a 3-4 day journey through some of the most secluded places I have ever seen (Cape Horn among them!). It’s on the expensive side – but oh so worth it! It was called Australis. Other than that… I recommend checking out Neuquen in Patagonia – specifically the Bodega Fin fel Mundo (one Of the best wines I had in Argentina). I spent 2 weeks in Patagonia a few years ago (Argentina and Chile) – please email me if you’d like any other suggestions! x

      That’s a great piece of advice, Kate. I’ll surely check the boat trip from Ushuaia (hope I’ll be able to afford it) and Neuquen/Bodega Fin del Mundo. I read something about Neuquen and it was one of the possible stops and now that you tell me it’s worth it I’ll surely look better into it. Thanks so much!
