Argentina has many campgrounds but the beauty is that you don’t need to depend on them. Boondocking is allowed and very common indeed. The most extraordinary camping spots are in the back of beyond, only reachable by car or motorcycle (or the very persistent cyclist). That’s why Argentina is such a perfect country to go overlanding: travel it with your own (motorized) vehicle.
Argentina is high on the list of overlanders who ship their vehicle to South America and explore its its remote landscapes for months at the time. If you don’t have a lot of time or your own vehicle, you can rent cars everywhere in Argentina, as well as camper-style vans in cities such as Buenos Aires.
Here are some of Argentina’s mind-blowing places you can’t reach by public transport.
