ARGENTINA FOR FAMILIES

A family holiday in Argentina is for those who want a bit of adventure. The Andes Mountain range runs the length of the country and at the base you will find; glaciers, lakes and white water rivers. Here you can go; kayaking across lakes, raft the rivers, walk over glaciers and go horse riding for days.  All of this can also be combined with the impressive Iguazu falls making Argentina a family holiday to remember.
For those that love horse riding, this is probably the best country in the world to do it.  Each estancia has a range of horses to suit your age and riding standard, whether you are a novice that has never ridden or an expert. The estancias also gives you the opportunity to take part in the life of a ranch and your kids will be able to do everything from milking cows to picking wild berries.

BEST PLACES IN ARGENTINA FOR FAMILIES

A family holiday in Argentina is to mix wild scenery with an active day there are numerous walking trails to be found in the foothills as well as kayaking across lakes with towering snow-capped Andean peaks above.  For those old enough there is also the opportunity to trek across a glacier, which will leave you in awe of your surroundings

Bariloche

Bariloche is situated on the foothills of the Andes and on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi making it one of the most picturesque places in Argentina.  The nearby national park of Nahuel Huapi is the oldest in the country and has some of the most diverse biospheres in the area as well an abundance of wildlife.

Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, known as the ‘Paris of South America’ is a fascinating, colourful city with a European feel and a personality of its own. Its districts range from the bohemian La Boca, an artistic district with colourful late colonial buildings, the rejuvenated and hip Palermo Soho with all the new boutique hotels and bars, to the more fashionable Recoleta district with botanical and Japanese gardens and smart cafes ideal for watching life go by.

Cordoba

The main reason for coming to Cordoba is the small collection of rolling hills to north – the Sierras Chicas.  These low lying mountains have a similar history to that of the Pampas and as such the area has numerous estancias all of which are a perfect base for horse riding, walking, mountain biking, or just relaxing in the cooler temperatures that this area is known for.

Iguazu

The Iguazu Falls are a collection of 280 waterfalls plunging into a 3 km long gorge situated on the borders of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.   Without doubt they are the best falls in the world.  They are so good because unlike other major waterfalls, there are a variety of activities surrounding them. 

Jose Ignacio

The small fishing village of Jose Ignacio is the new place to go for a beach holiday in Uruguay.  Punta del Este has grown quickly and commercialism has taken over, but thankfully the sleepy little town of Jose Ignacio has preserved its small town atmosphere. The village is located on a natural peninsula that juts out into the ocean with two sweeping beaches either side.

Salta & the north west

The northwest is a relatively unknown region of Argentina and Salta is the centre from which to explore this spectacularly varied region. The multi-coloured valleys and canyons of Calchaques twist and turn down to Cafayate from where you can visit the ancient pre-Inca ruins of Quilmes, or walk through narrow canyons to hidden waterfalls, or, sample wine from the many vineyards in the area.
