Argentina is one of the most popular tourist destinations due to the beautiful landscape and enriching borders it shares with Uruguay, Brazil, South Atlantic Ocean, Bolivia, Paraguay and the Drake Passage. The Argentine Republic has a mainland area of 1,073,500 square miles and is the eighth largest country in the world.
Argentina is filled with so many beautiful landscapes and is so large, that it’s nothing short of a challenge when the time comes to decide where to go first within the country.
Mount Fitz Roy
The gorgeous Mount Fitz Roy in Argentina is nothing short of being the main attraction in the country. It is one of the most famous sights that every tourist makes sure to visit when in Argentina. The mountain is located inside the Los Glacieres National Park, Patagonian Ice Field – on the border Argentina shares with Chile. Mount Fitz Roy ranks as one of the most exigent mountains in the world because of all that sheer granite you must overcome in order to conquer it. Fitz Roy was first conquered in 1952. Unlike the Everest, which can be conquered in a day, Fitz Roy is a lot more challenging.
Perito Moreno Glacier
The Perito Moreno Glacier is also located inside the Los Glacieres National Park. Perito is also one of the most visited and admired tourist attractions of Argentina. The reason for the fame of this glacier is because it is rather unusual in comparison to other glaciers. While most glaciers are continuously receding, the Perito Moreno Glacier is progressing, and the reason for this is still unknown. The famous glacier has gained a lot of popularity for trekking tours in recent times.
‘Cataratas del Iguazú’ or Iguazú Falls
The Cataratas del Iguazú or Iguazú Falls are the largest waterfalls worldwide, and comprises an upper and lower Iguaçu by dividing the river. The waterfalls are of the Iguazú River which outlines the border between Argentina and Brazil. “The Devil’s Throat” is also merely a nickname given to the Iguazú Falls because they flow in the shape of a reversed ‘J’. Since there are two international airports that are rather close to the location of the waterfall, it is sure to be visited by every tourist who visits Argentina, and Brazil, too. In fact, the Iguazú Falls are such a famous attraction sight that there are bus and cab services specifically to take you to-and-fro the falls.
If you’re visiting Argentina, you can’t possibly leave the gorgeous capital out of your list of places to see. Buenos Aires is truly breathtaking.
Palace of the Argentine National Congress
One of the oldest standing buildings of Argentina, the National Congress Building in Buenos Aires is a place that you must visit.
The colorful district, La Boca, of Buenos Aires, is popular for just that – being colorful. It is one of the most vibrant and culturally attractive sights of Argentina.
This gorgeous district in Buenos Aires was once quite neglected and depreciated. Now, it has been rebuilt to look modern and extravagant, and is one of the most beautiful districts in Argentina.
