A family vacation in Argentina can be fun when you choose to visit during the country’s winter months. Winter down in Argentina falls between the months of June and August. Basically, the summer months here in the United States. So, if you are craving some wintertime fun and adventures, a few destinations in Argentina will be the perfect option when escaping the heat. Today, I am going to share the best winter destinations in Argentina. One of them could be the perfect place for you to make memories with your family while away from home. The best part is you won’t be roasting from the heat while making those memories!
Buenos Aires is considered the heart of Argentina. It is actually one of the destinations in Argentina that most families choose for their family trips. This city is full of history, gorgeous architecture, and delicious cuisine.
This is also the best place in Argentina to learn how to tango. If you don’t dance, you may at least want to attend the Tango World Championship. This dancing exhibition is held every year during the winter months.
Patagonia is considered by many as the end of the world. This region in Argentina is full of beautiful landscapes and scenic views. Your family can enjoy it all during car rides. Or you can choose to head out on a hike on one of the many trails in Patagonia.
The locals call San Carlos de Bariloche simply Bariloche. This town is within part of the Patagonia region. You can easily combine the two areas during one family vacation. One of the best things you can do here is sip on hot chocolate, as you enjoy the scenery.
You won’t want to spend much time in the small town of Esquel. However, it is an excellent place to take a train ride through. The Old Patagonian Express, or La Trochita, goes two hundred fifty miles between Esquel and Ingeniero Jacobacci.
It’s a wonderful way to see quite a bit of Argentina in a short amount of time.
It is really cold in El Calafate, Argentina. Instead of snow, this area fills up with ice. The nearby national park is an excellent place to go hiking amongst all the glaciers. The Perito Moreno Glacier is one of the most popular glaciers. It is one of the oldest glaciers in the world.
Linger at any of the glaciers in El Calafate and embrace the beauty, and stillness, that surrounds you.
Puerto Madryn is on the Valdes Peninsula. This is one of the best places to go whale watching while in Argentina. Certain species of whales will be near Puerto Madryn between August and September.
Other whales will be in the area at other times of the year. So, if you can’t visit Argentina during their winter months, you may still have a chance to see whales up close. This is wonderful news if you prefer to visit destinations during the warmer months of the year.
Iguazu Falls are in the northern region in Argentina. The summer months are brutally hot in that region. Therefore, the winter months are best for exploring this waterfall and the surrounding area.
You may find yourself meeting members of the Guarani Tribe when you are near the falls. Those people have lived in the area for many years. They normally keep to themselves, so don’t be surprised if they don’t approach you during your visit.
Sipping wine in Argentina is possible when you spend your family vacation in Mendoza. This city is the wine capital of the country. It is also where the tallest mountain in South America can be found.
Spend your morning hiking part of the way to the summit of Aconcagua peak. Then sip wine at a vineyard in the afternoon. The best part about visiting the vineyards in winter is it is prime grape harvest season. So, your family can learn a lot while drinking new wines.
Hiking is the most popular family activity in Tierra del Fuego during the summer months. However, the winter months bring the excitement of skiing.
If you want to see wildlife while in this destination in Argentina, take a boat ride to Martillo Island. This island is located in the Beagle Channel. Gentoo and Magellanic penguins live on the island.
These are the best winter destinations in Argentina to visit during a family vacation. There are a lot of memories your family can make while going on one adventure after another.
