Argentina is a land of contrasts – there is desert, cactus and the famous Iguazu falls in the north; glaciers, penguins and the stunning Moreno glacier in the south; the buzz of a distinctly European Buenos Aires in the east and ski-ing and trekking in the Andes to the west.

Mendoza is the perfect base from which to explore. It’s centrally located and allows easy access to all of Argentina’s sights. The city itself is beautiful, with large, leafy plazas and wide avenues. Cosmopolitan cafes pepper the streets and in the evening wine bars buzz with locals enjoying the region’s Malbec. The Andes provide a stunning backdrop to the city, and students regularly group together to go on hiking, rafting, horse-riding and skiing trips.
