Sport and Recreation in Argentina - Activity Info. - Argentina

Argentina’s diverse landscape provides travelers with a great choice of sporting and recreational opportunities. Whether it be horse riding across the dry central sierras, skiing in the Andes or trekking throughout Patagonia, in many respects Argentina is a sporting paradise.

Its size and variation makes Argentina excellent for hikers of all levels. Breathtaking views can be found throughout the country and many walks can be combined with spectacular bird watching opportunities. As the home of guacho traditions what better place to learn, or master, the skills of horse riding? For the more experienced rider there are even opportunities to partake in pato, the national sport that is something of a combination of polo and basketball. Its collection of rugged terrain, diverse landscapes and inviting vast open spaces makes Argentina also very popular with cyclists and mountain bikers.

As well as being a haven for trekking and climbing, parts of Patagonia provide excellent fishing possibilities. Many of the expansive waters throughout Argentina are used for rafting and kayaking and along parts of the coast the popularity of kite surfing is taking off. Skiing is becoming increasingly popular and the industry is expanding at numerous points throughout the Andes. For fans of the extreme side of sports, Argentina is laden with opportunities such as bungee jumping and quad biking along the sand dunes of Pinamar.

Saying that football is a religion is a cliché…if you’re talking about anywhere but Argentina, that is. Many Argentineans worship football and going to a game at the cathedral, er… stadium of one of Argentina’s top teams is an experience that should not be missed. Watching a football match really is a spectacle and for those who also like to play, finding a pick-up game is generally easy.
