Each destination within Argentina has a great selection of active experiences for the adventurous traveller. Patagonia is the obvious destinations for walkers with world class options, and full day treks towards the dramatic peaks of Fitz Roy or the more gentle undulating slopes around Lago Nahuel Huapi in the Lake District. For an alternative way of enjoying the fabulous Patagonian scenery, the Perito Moreno glacier offers a close up view with a chance to try on crampons and hike across the surface of the ice as you hear the cracks and strains from above. Further south towards Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia, canoes and kayaks offer an excellent way to get off the beaten track and explore the National Park by an alternative means.
Elsewhere in Argentina there are some creative sightseeing options as Buenos Aires now offers cycling tours as a way of avoiding the traffic, whilst in Mendoza riding between vineyards on the country roads is a good way to visit the various wineries without requiring a car. In northern Argentina there are then more serious trails for those looking to get off road on mountain bikes. The Gaucho culture in the Argentine countryside meanwhile is synonymous with riding horses, and some lodges and estancias have horses on site for you to ride. There is something on offer for novice or experienced riders or for those looking for something different, the are even some properties that can organise Polo classes to experience one of Argentina's more unusual sports.
