Arguably, it is also one of the most visually stunning cities in the world, it certainly is in Argentina. Bariloche also boasts a diverse range of dining options as well as delectable locally-made chocolates.

Learn about winemaking on a tour of the numerous vineyards in Mendoza and sample some robust Malbec - the region's signature variety.

At night, become a part of the thriving local nightlife by heading out to Aristides Villanueva street which is full of lively bars and steak restaurants - all serving a full range of mouth-watering Mendoza wines.
