Ah the honeymoon, the be all and end all of holidays. The holiday your “cool” couple friends will secretly judge you on for years to come. The holiday that quite possibly controls the future well-being of your marital life. The hol… OK you get the picture.

Think of honeymoon and your mind inevitably goes straight to palm fringed beaches with soft white sand and we don't blame you, but what if we suggested vivid-coloured glacial lakes, snow-dusted volcanoes, sub-tropical jungle, roaring waterfalls and culturally rich cities. Great, now we have your attention let's talk Argentina.

Argentina is the perfect portal into South America and, with such a diverse landscape, the country covers all those holidays you've wanted to take together but haven't quite found the time. Whether you're horse riding or glacier trekking in Southern Patagonia, learning to Tango in Buenos Aires (known as the 'Paris of South America'), enjoying a wine tour in Mendoza or soaring over Iguazu Falls in a helicopter, you're guaranteed to have a honeymoon to write home about.
