Iguazú Falls, which located in the northern part of the country, and perfectly situated on the Argentinean border with neighboring country Brazil, is considered a world heritage site by UNESCO. This site is considered the most beautiful amongst all attractions in Argentina, with 275 separate falls that meet in a 2,700-meter wide crescent shaped waterfall popularly called “the Devil’s Throat”. Visitors especially love the fact that you can stand over such exceptional catwalks on the edge of the falls without risking your life.

Also known as San Carlos de Bariloche, this eye catching town has more to offer than the scenic views of snowy mountain tops and clear blue lake waters. Activities you can try here include skiing, camping, rafting, hiking, climbing, sailing, swimming, and fishing while you take pleasure from a truly enchanting view.

This is a challenging destination for tourists, as the only way to reach this part of Argentina is by bus (which lasts more than 3 hours from El Calafate). The scenery is one reason why people still consider visiting this far-flung area at the northern edge of Los Glaciares National Park, but travelers often come here to hike and climb the stimulating mountains.

For a unique wildlife experience, a few days in Puerto Madryn (via plane or bus ride) is definitely a must. You can watch Southern Right Whales dance and flip their tales right in front of you in the Gulfo Nuevo, see some penguins perform together in the Punta Tombo Natural Protected Area, or take a look at different species of birds and marine creatures in Peninsula Valdes. The architecture in a Welsh town called Gaiman is also a must-see, where you can treat yourself with Welsh tea and goodies.
