Argentina Travel Posted on 06/23/2019

The Argentina landscape is extremely varied and ranges from steep Patagonian snow-capped mountains to tropical jungles and waterfalls. It is one of the largest countries in South America, with a stunning north-to-south expanse of 9,376 km of diverse terrain. Argentina is divided into seven geographical regions, each with its own climate, topography, and local culture.

The wide range of Argentina’s landscape allows visitors to have multiple travel experiences in a single trip to the country. Don’t be surprised when you’re blown away by its beautiful natural wonders!

1. Northern Argentina Landscape: Desert and Mountain

In the Argentine Northwest, indigenous cultural destinations like Salta and Jujuy are housed in rugged mountains and deep valleys, whose red rock walls are seeped with a rainbow of colors. Natural are some of the most exquisite landscapes offered in the whole country. The Northwest climate varies from generally dry with light rainfall, to cold nighttime winter temperatures.

Nearby, Gran Chaco has a very hot subtropical climate, with low sloping planes to handle the generous amount of rain. 

The mighty Iguazu Falls will marvel at you no doubt. Explore this enormous National Park through its walkways, or even you can catch a ride on the Ecological Train: these Argentina landscapes include tropical rainforest, lush jungles, and thousands of butterflies and toucans.

Buenos Aires is an enchanting city all year round. During summer, hot temperatures may lead you to visit nearby towns like San Antonio de Areco, to learn all about the Gaucho culture while enjoying some local wines by the pool.
