On a continent that serves up a menu of contrasts, Argentina is the signature dish. Take the land of fire and ice in the far south, add the subtropical north, throw in the Andes mountains and the rich grasslands of the pampas where the gauchos roam, and you have an epic feast of delights to savour. Begin your voyage of discovery in cosmopolitan and stylish Buenos Aires, the capital that never sleeps and where you can eat delicious steaks hot from the parilla, and learn to dance the famous tango. Head south to Bariloche, nestling in the Andes, to wonder at the endless range of snow-clad peaks, be awestruck by the huge lakes that teem with giant trout, or travel on to Patagonia to marvel at living glaciers. Famous for beef cattle, Argentina is also home to a huge diversity of wildlife, including condors, pumas, capybaras, killer whales, penguins, flamingos, and many exotic birds.
