Cheap flights from Argentina

Think ‘Argentina’ and what immediately comes to mind might be European football (or maybe just Lionel Messi) and the temperature-raising Argentine Tango, but this long, large country stretching through the southernmost part of South America is so much more than that. Bordering Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, a bit of Brazil, Uruguay and the South Atlantic Ocean, Argentina - with an area of more than 2 million square kilometres - is the 8th largest country in the world. The space between its boundaries is blanketed by an incredible, diverse tapestry of natural beauty, offering travellers at once the Andes Mountains, the thundering Iguazu Falls, sparkling blue lakes, vast deserts, salt flats, ice fields, grasslands, rivers, and both the highest point and lowest points of South America.

Don’t leave Argentina without having visited one of South America’s most beautiful regions, the Patagonia. An area shared between Argentina and Chile in the Andes mountains, the Patagonia region is remarkably large and visually stunning. The region boasts 2 amazing national parks (Parque Nacional De Los Glaciares, and Parque Nacional Torres Del Paine), a spectacular Lakes District, plenty of wildlife and much, much more, making Patagonia a must-see at least once in your life.

Leaving Argentina for the weekend? How about a quick flight over to neighbouring Bolivia, one of the world’s few mega-diverse countries? Pay a visit to the renowned Salar de Uyuni, the planet’s largest salt flat (with an area of more than 10,000 square kilometres). A dazzlingly white, reflective salt desert containing more than 9 billion tonnes of salt, the Salar de Uyuni salt plains stretch as far as the eye can see, with a landscape consisting of intricately interlocked hexagonal salt tiles and dotted with little pyramid salt mounds scraped up by miners. Formed when prehistoric lakes dried out, the Salar de Uyuni is more than 10,000 years old and is one of the world’s most important reserves of salt and lithium.

For something a bit further away though, grab a long-haul flight to one of the oldest known continuously-inhabited areas in the world, Africa’s Tanzania. Get an up close and personal look at one of the world’s best wildlife reserves - the Serengeti National Park, where the annual wildebeest migration takes place. A truly incredible natural spectacle, the migration involves a million massive wildebeests following the cycle of life and charging through a 1,000 kilometre marathon to the north through crocodile-infested waters, all for the chance to graze at fresher grounds.
