Region

Argentina

In the southern part of the American continent, Argentina extends from the tropic of Capricorn to the cold of southern Patagonia. The imposing Andes Mountains range extends down the spine of South America and adds a further gamut of climates and vegetation types. In the north, exuberant montane or cloudforests, known as Yungas, climb the slopes to tree-line at the high desert plateaus, while the most beautiful temperate woods cloak the glacial landscapes of the southern reaches. Vast savannahs and impenetrable thorny woods of the Gran Chaco occupy the north central region, giving way eastwards to the subtropical Atlantic rainforests where the famous Iguazú waterfalls spills into the Paraná River. In the central part of Argentina, the well-known Pampas grasslands, give way to the desolate steppes of Patagonia in the distant south. To the east, the nutrient rich Atlantic Ocean harbours Southern Right Whales and thousands of albatross.

Nature lovers from all over the world are always very favourably impressed by the marvellous attention given to them by our cosmopolitan and very friendly people, our tango, excellent wines and delicious cuisine, as well as the “best steaks in the world”.
