Thoughts of Argentina’s wine country typically evoke images of Mendoza and a landscape dotted with vineyards watched over by the towering Andes. While Mendoza is indeed its heartland, Argentina’s wine region extends all along the Andean foothills, from the country’s northern province of Salta to Patagonia down south.
In just a short flight from Buenos Aires, you can discover an enticing patchwork of snow-capped peaks, meandering rivers, desert terrain, and lunar-like scenery. If you enjoy crashing through rapids and spotting curious Andean wildlife, or trotting around one of the world’s great mountain ranges, then this could be the place for you. Go beyond the wine and bodegas with these exciting experiences in Argentina’s wine country.
