Hey everyone ... my fiance and I are getting married in October and will be honeymooning in Argentina for three weeks in November. I love planning trips, but due to the scale of the country I'm finding this a little daunting!
We're keen to take in Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Bariloche and maybe Calatafe/Ushaia - is that too much? I'd welcome some pointers ...
Also, is it worth booking internal flights and accommodation now or better to wait until we're there?
Any info or thoughts are welcome - particularly on the best way to get around the vast distances ...

I spent 4 weeks in Argentina and visited the exact same place as you indicate in your post. Have a look at my blog about some of the great stuff you will see there and some of the ideas about planning your great trip.
Nothing is too much as long as you are willing to do some flying and limit your activities while you are in those particular destinations.
Bariloche is nice however you can plan lots of things to do via day trips etc. in and around t his city.
Mendoza....great place for wine and laid back atmosphere. Maybe Mendoza to Calafate via plane and skip Bariloche.
Any other questions just post them

Rich (and Dean) welcome! There are no easy answers as far as domestic transportation. Buses are cheap but time consuming, some train routes are ok (BA - Rosario - Cordoba) but not widespread available. Places far south very difficult to reach unless flying. Although expensive, flying will be the most efficient way to travel... Just keep an eye on possible strikes by pilots.
Yes, book in advance!
