Argentina is a country where passions run almost as high as the snow-capped Andes. A whirlwind of juicy Gaucho steaks and captivating Tango dances awaits those who touchdown on cheap flights to Argentina from Australia, especially as most connections will whisk you into the energetic capital of Buenos Aires, where the rollicking cocktail joints of Palermo Soho mingle with the boho coffeeshops of jacaranda-dotted San Telmo. Outside of that, these deals could be your ticket to the untamed landscapes of Patagonia. There, Argentina is carved up by ice-shedding glaciers and rolls out in swathes of sheep farms to a frothing ocean. Elsewhere, you can meet cowboys in Gran Chaco ranches or taste wines in the mountain-shrouded bodegas of Mendoza. It's pretty awesome stuff.
Watch as huge blocks of ice drop from the massive Perito Merino Glacier in the depths of stunning Patagonia.
Mendoza is a region of two halves. One is all rustic wine cellars. The other is colossal Andean peaks that top out with 6,900-meter-high Aconcagua.
The beating hub of Argentina is Buenos Aires, a metropolis of Tango-tapping cantinas and enticing Gaucho steakhouses.
