relief presents huge contrasts between the regions in the
east of the country, with its enormous plains and the majestic
Andes Mountain Range, which is found along the entire extension
of its western border, Mount Aconcagua with its 6.959 metres
(22.831 feet) of altitude drawing particular attention.
The Andes carry us from the desert of the high plateau of
the Northwest, where the polychrome ridges of the Humahuaca
Gorge dazzle us, across the lakes, rivers, volcanoes and
forests of the south, to finally arrive at the striking
glaciers, the most famous being the Perito Moreno Glacier.
Northwest puts us in contact ancient American cultures through

In the central region, better known as the Pampa, an enormous
plain spreads itself out, showing off its intense farming

of Buenos Aires, the country’s capital, home to 30%
of the country’s population. Towards the south and
the west, this landscape is interrupted by the cropping
up of the Tandil, Ventana and Códoba Ridges.
Towards the south-west, between the Andes and the Atlantic
Ocean lies the formation of the huge Patagonian Plateau,
while on the coast can be found the Valdés Peninsula,
a fantastic refuge for whales, penguins, sea-lions and sea-elephants.
