Popular Walking holiday
Ski surrounded by the Italian Dolomites' jagged peaks. Departures December through to February.
The spine of the Andes forms the natural border between Argentina and Chile, and the highest peaks in the entire 5000-mile-long range are to be found here. For a tough trekking holiday in Argentina have a look at Aconcagua, the highest peak in the southern hemisphere, the highest in the western hemisphere, in fact the highest peak in the world outside the Himalaya-Karakorum region of Asia. Yet, in spite of its great height – 6962m (22,840ft) – Aconcagua requires no technical climbing skills, just a great deal of determination.
Further south you can find an easier but still satisfying walking holiday in Argentina in the depths of Patagonia. This region has always held a strange fascination – the brilliant clear air, the wide open spaces, the stunningly beautiful lakes, the incredible huge glaciers and, most of all, the amazing rugged peaks – not as high as Aconcagua, but equally impressive.
Mix in with this a visit to some of the many other sights of this huge country - Buenos Aires, Iguassu Falls, the wine region of Mendoza, try the legendary steaks, meet the hardy gaucho horsemen, and you have an unforgettable destination.
