My husband and I, both Canadians, are planning on visiting Argentina in late May-mid June. We are *hoping* to spend 3 weeks travelling and taking in as much as possible.

Gosh! It all sounds so wonderful, but I know we can't see the entire country in that amount of time.

I am looking forward to visiting the region around Bariloche/San Martin de los Andes, as I simply go ga-ga over mountains. And, it seems like you could make an entire trip just out of visiting BA.

I realize the weather won't be ideal to visit the glaciers in June, but it seems a shame to travel all the way from Canada and not hit up the areas around Ushuaia. (Then again, I'm sure there are glaciers up north of here.)

The falls sound wonderful, and more particularly the jungle area surrounding them. But as someone else mentioned here, if you've seen Niagara, are the Iguazu Falls a must?

Okay, enough! Knowing your country as you do, what do you think are the *must* regions for a three-week visit for someone who may never make it back again?

Thanks for the input and insight. Looking forward to visiting in June!

Mona, welcome!

First, you may have to register to keep posting. As much as I hate getting on the way we temporarily had to set up registration to prevent some nasty spamming.

Unto the topic: surprisingly, 3 weeks might be all you need to cover a good chunk. The average tourist does not need to stay more than 3 nights in Calafate to see the glaciers and 2 nights in Ushuaia to see the national park unless there are personal reasons to do so. A thorough visit to Bariloche may take up to a week, specially if you like mountains and want to explore nearby towns like San Martin de los Andes or Villa La Angostura. You still have plenty of time for BA and perhaps a short escapade to Iguazu. By the way, Iguazu falls are quite different than the Niagara's and you will not regret visiting them.

Being from Canada I doubt the weather will be much of a problem. Not even Ushuaia may get as cold as some regions of Canada since it is surrounded by mountains and close to water. Your most important concern should be bad weather that may not permit excursions, more so than cold temperatures.
