Try a self drive through canyons and vineyards
Drive through dust-swirled canyons, explore white-washed villages and descend into green valleys packed with sunny vineyards. A self drive trip is a real adventure, offering all the freedom of the open road. The roads are generally in good condition and the scenery is simply to die for. If you’re after a truly independent experience, it’s by far the best way to travel.
Explore the Andes Outback
The north of Argentina is an arid wilderness scattered with rusty canyons, rainbow-coloured hills, giant cacti and tiny traditional villages. Driving from laid back, sunny Salta, you can explore the area on your own four wheels, driving through an ever changing, eye opening landscape. Stop amidst tumbling vineyards to taste the local tipples, stay in welcoming family run accommodation and soak up the scenery.
Take a drive on the wild side
Patagonia is famous for its staggering glaciers and desolate lanscapes, but the northern Atlantic coast gets far less press. Here, on the jutting Peninsula Valdes, you’ll find a wilderness bursting at the seams with wildlife. Drive past sheep grazing on the plains, keep an eye out for darting ostrich like nandoos and take whale watching boat trips into the waves. With huge colonies of penguins, sea lions and elephant seals, you won’t be disappointed.
