Perito Moreno Glacier

Patagonia offers us some of the most beautiful landscapes that we can enjoy in Argentina. Patagonia is located in the southern part of the country, to the east is the Indian Ocean, while at the center we can admire the immense plateaus that descend from the Andes Mountains, bordering Chile. But its southern area is the most notable and that is more well known throughout the world. In this area the Land of Fire joins the Strait of Magellan, the Cape Horn and Antarctica; it is also the area of the large glaciers, where Ushuaia, the city that boasts of being the southernmost city in the world.

Patagonia is pure nature and therefore can offer the tourist the visit of so many natural parks, such as the Lihué Calel, where practice ecotourism and sport adventure. As the park of Nahuel Huapi, in Bariloche, a wonderful landscape painted by the very nature, between lakes and snowy mountain ranges, where you can practice from hiking to skiing. Also the Natural Park of the glaciers, which is remarkable especially the Perito Moreno Glacier.

Bariloche is a tourist center of first line, famous among the young people of the country, which in addition to its activities offers us, apart from the most delicious chocolate of the country, precious natural landscapes, such as El Bolson, the Forest of Arrayanes or the crossing of the Seven Lakes.

If we move further south we arrive to the coast of the Beagle, from which, staying in Ushuaia, we can try to reach up to the well-known as Lighthouse at the end of the world. We can also explore, in the Tourist Train known as Southern Railway, the Tierra del Fuego National Park.

Another tour very popular among the tourists is the whale watching in Puerto Madryn, in the province of Chubut. Peninsula Valdes is an authentic paradise for lovers of wildlife. From the same coast you can spot whales that, once a year, come to mate.

Gastronomy, sports, nature … these are enough reasons to not leave to visit Patagonia in our trip to Argentina.
