You can try white-water rafting one day, and horseriding or rock climbing the next – there’s fun for all the family.
Spend a day at Santa Tierra
Family hiking in Córdoba
For families who love the great outdoors, there is perhaps nowhere better in Argentina to indulge in some leisurely hiking than in the central province of Córdoba. While the city of Cordoba is known for its vibrant nightlife, the surrounding sierras are an abundance of rivers, creeks, hills and valleys, and there are plenty of places to stop on a road trip of the area to check out the sights.
Go camping in Bariloche
A trip to Bariloche in Argentine Patagonia offers fun for all the family. From a day of chocolate-shopping and ice-skating in town, to driving the incredibly stunning Circuito Chico and checking out views over the seven lakes, Bariloche wows with its beauty. Given the proliferation of so many lakes, there are numerous campgrounds you can stay on to take advantage of the pristine scenery.
Spot wildlife in Valdés Peninsula
Between June and December, wildlife enthusiasts should head south to the Patagonian region of Peninsula Valdés to come face-to-face with some of the world’s most incredible species. Take a boat out to see the enormous southern right whale (baleen whale), walk among a huge colony of Magellanic penguins, or watch elephant seals face off against each other. Valdés Peninsula really is a wonderful spectacle of the natural world.
