From miles of snow-capped peaks and crystal-clear lakes to vast stretches of beaches or deserts, Argentina offers many options to know, relax, have fun and enjoy, loaded with culture, history and beautiful landscapes.
One of the preferred regions, both for national and international tourism, is the Patagonia. These are the 5 cities that at some point in your life you have to know
1 – Ushuaia – Tierra del Fuego
This city, also known as “The End of the World” because it is the southern tip of South America, is only 1,000 km away from the Antarctic Peninsula and is surrounded by the Beagle Channel and Mount Martial. Two of the main attractions are the Jail at the End of the World and the Les Eclaireurs Lighthouse, where you can get unforgettable postcards.
2 – El Calafate – Santa Cruz
Located on the southern shore of Lake Argentino, this city is a worldwide tourist center, known as the Capital of Los Glaciares, since it is only one hour from the National Park. It preserves an extensive area of Continental and Glacial Ice, Southern Andean-Patagonian Forest and native flora and fauna (such as the Huemul that is in extinction).
Within the area are the Upsala, Viedma, Spegazzini and Perito Moreno Glaciers. The latter is 160 km long and is the Eighth Wonder of the World, due to its majesty and grandeur.
3 – El Chaltén – Santa Cruz
This impressive natural scenery is known worldwide as the National Capital of Trekking. It offers the possibility of, without previous experience, doing self-guided trails, through magical forests with panoramic viewpoints that have incredible views of glaciers and mountains.
4 – Puerto Madryn – Chubut
Its beautiful beaches, surrounded by cliffs that look towards the Bay of the Golfo Nuevo, allow the sighting of the Southern Right Whale at certain time of year. In addition, from the endless Comandante Luis Piedra Buena dock, located on the coastal walk, you can see dolphins.
On the other side is the Valdés Peninsula, an unmissable place to visit, home to sea lions and penguins.
5 – Villa La Angostura – Rio Negro
Known as El Jardin de la Patagonia and famous for its ancient alpine-style houses built with local wood, this dreamlike natural paradise is located Northwest of Lake Nahuel Huapi and is framed by two National Parks. Some of its privileged views are Bahía Manzano, the Río Bonito waterfall, Cerro Bayo and Lake Correntoso.
