Cordoba, the second largest city in Argentina, is a beautiful location, with many hills, valleys and historic sites to see. The temperature is fairly mild all year round and the landscape offers the perfect terrain for extreme sports. Cordoba is located in the centre of Argentina and used to be the capital of the country before Buenos Aires. Direct flights to Cordoba from London are difficult to come by and generally the majority of flights will make one or two stopovers in major cities like Buenos Aires, Madrid, Miami, Dallas, Paris and Sao Paulo. Although the journey time of an indirect flight will be longer, it is often easier to find a cheap flight that includes a stopover as flights from Edinburgh or Manchester to Madrid, for example, can easily be found with low-cost carriers.
