Argentina Cruises

The Argentine Republic is the largest Spanish-speaking country on earth, and the eighth largest country overall. Spanish culture is just one of the major foreign influences here – Italians and Germans have also left lasting marks on Argentina, and some native tribes are still thriving.

With a long human history, this rich land is very diverse geographically, and has a stunning coastline that’s home to two of the world’s most scenic stretches of water – the Beagle Channel and the Magellan Straits. 

The weather here is changeable, so make sure you’re prepared in case it’s wet and cold outside. You don’t want to miss out on seeing Argentina’s absolutely stunning scenery for fear of the chill.

Highlights

Landscapes

There’s some dramatic scenery to be seen on a cruise to Argentina, and you’ll very probably see subtropical waterfalls, looming glaciers and teeming wildlife from the comfort of your ship. 

Breathtaking scenery

Travelling the Strait of Magellan, which separates mainland South America to the north and Tierra del Fuego to the south, will give you a taste of this unique Argentine region. There are over 40 lighthouses that guide ships on the way through the 370-mile stretch – keep an eye out for the penguins too.

 

Wildlife

 xx

When you’re cruising through the 150-mile Beagle Channel, keep a lookout for sea lions, as well as the Peale’s dolphin and minke whales in the water. 

Or glance to the skies for the black-browed albatross, the thick-set giant petrel, the South American tern or the primitive-looking cormorant.
