Argentina's Los Glaciares (or Glaciers) National Park in Patagonia is near the trekking meccas of El Calafate and El Chalten. The area offers exceptional opportunities to get up close to towering glaciers like Perito Moreno, which is still advancing and can be enjoyed on an ice hike or from the water. Outside of Patagonia, Argentina brings to mind the Andean peaks of Aconcagua and surrounding mountains – the highest outside the Himalayas – and the wildlife of the Valdes Peninsula. If you need another reason to visit, consider Mendoza for world-class red wine and the Argentinian Lakes District near Bariloche for scenic lakeside wilderness lodges. Antarctica cruises depart from Buenos Aires and Ushuaia on Argentina's southernmost tip.

For me, Argentina brings to mind the steppe and sweeping pampas of traditional Estancias, and the food and wine - everyone should enjoy an Asado barbecue paired with a Mendoza red in buzzing Buenos Aires
