Twenty six days is plenty to even visit another country while in Argentina. Since this is summer time I would also plan to visit Punta del Este in Uruguay for a few days. Any trip this time of the year must include the beaches. This is what I would do:

4 nts Buenos Aires
2 nts Iguazu
4 nts Bariloche
3 nts Puerto Madryn
5 nts Villa Gessel/Pinamar/Carilo
1 nt Colonia del Sacramento (Uruguay)
3 nts Punta del Este (Uruguay)
2 nts Buenos Aires
-
24 nights. You still have 2 more nights to devote to any single destination, after research. An alternative destination you can think of adding is Mendoza. Depending on what kind of trip you want, you can add days to the Patagonia/Andes region and take them from the beaches or viceversa. The above is just a rough sketch that includes the most important areas in Argentina.

Is it worth it to visit Ushuaia instead of Puerto Madry. Is it possible to see whales also in Ushuaia?
Thanks

Nadja, both destinations are very different and they are both worth the trip. Ushuaia is more exotic in that it is the southernmost city in the earth. It has a beautiful national park and some unusual attractions, like 'the train to the end of the world'. This small, narrow train used to transfer prisoners to the jail house there. It's been recycled into a turist trip, at present. Puerto Madryn, offers a completely different experience in that is an enormous reservoir of animal life. Once there, you will have a chance to see sea lions, sea wolves, penguins, hundreds of bird species, whales and perhaps even orcas. I have never heard of whale trips in Ushuaia. The most common trip for whale watching is the one that travelers take to Puerto Madryn. It is common to spot at close distance the southern right whale.
