Located in the south of South America, stretching across the latitudes running from the Tropic of Capricorn to Ushuaia, the southernmost town in the world, Argentina is a country that offers a large quantity of different climates and landscapes. Her 3.800 kilometres (2.400 miles) of longitude extend from the 22° to the 55° latitudes south and borders five countries, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia and Chile.

Argentina’s 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.

The Northwest puts us in contact ancient American cultures through its geography full of colouring, with jungles, salt-flats and the Puna.
In the north-east, on the border with Brazil and Paraguay, in the middle of the sub-tropical jungle, are situated the beautiful Iguazú Falls; the basin of the Pilcomayo and Bermejo Rivers outlines one of the most important forest areas of the country; between the Paraná and Uruguay opens up the Argentinean Mesopotamia, highlighted by the Iberá Swampland, the Yatay Palm-groves and the huge Paraná Delta.
In the central region, better known as the Pampa, an enormous plain spreads itself out, showing off its intense farming and grazing activities. On the banks of the River Plate, the widest river in the world, is located the great city 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.

Those are some of the most common destinations. We invite you to come and visit them but we also offer you the pleasure of enjoying many other beautiful but hidden spots to be discovered in Argentina.
