- South America
Argentina is the second-largest country in South America. Â Our Natural Argentina tour is a fantastic way for exploring the country, starting with Buenos Aires and the stunning Aguazu Falls in the far north, the Atlantic city of Puerto Madryn in the central coastal area followed by the the southern glaciers close to Calafate and the Tierra del Fuego National Park at Argentinaâ€™s southern, Antartic facing tip. Â
Argentina\'s diverse geography includes the fertile plains of the Pampas, the oil-rich plateau of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, the subtropical flats of the Gran Chaco and the rugged Andes Mountains along its western border with Chile. Buenos Aires, the capital, is one of the busiest and most elegant cities in the world. Â Argentina\'s land mass extends all the way from the Northern tropical zones down to the Southern Antartic region, covering all of the climatic zones in between.
