Ushuaia and the Beagle Canal - Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world and was once home to Argentina’s worst prisoners because of its remoteness. Situated on the banks of the Beagle Canal, the city is also a great place to take a cruise to Antarctica.

Aconcagua National Park - the highest peak in the Western hemisphere - the Aconcagua volcano - can be found here, making it another area in Argentina that is enjoyed by hikers.
Lihue Calel National Park - this area of Argentina is quite difficult to get to, so is scarcely visited by tourists - adding to its unique atmosphere. The site is characterised by its flat landscape, with far-reaching plains, plateaus and desert. The weather is unpredictable so spectacular storms are common, adding drama to the landscape, while the area is also home to the rarely-sighted puma.
Talampaya National Park and Ischigualasto Provincial Park - these two areas of western Argentina have been named World Heritage Sites and offer some spectacular scenery. Talampaya is renowned for its canyon and red-sandstone cliffs, while a trip to Ischigualasto will reward you with some unusual rock formations.
