Chile In the north you’ll find tropical beaches worthy of the Caribbean and sophisticated vineyards, while down south there are glaciers, icy peaks and whales splashing about in the bays. The middle is a slow-altering shift between the two, home to vast cities, empty plains and mountains that hold heartbreak stories but still entice with their sheer beauty.

Argentina You’ll probably arrive in Argentina via Buenos Aires, where the cosmopolitan inhabitants invigorate visitors with trendy galleries, lively bars and tango, tango, tango. Huge steaks and skillful soccer each have their place too, as does literature and the long-held traditions of a complex, raunchy city, all of which serve to stir up the same passion in visitors that locals seem to take for granted. While Buenos Aires is undoubtedly the cultural hub, Córdoba is almost as funky, with contemporary galleries mixing with trance DJs and ancient Jesuit ruins, while tiny mountain villages lie just up the hill.
