Argentina, the country with every imaginable climate and landscape, dazzles by the marvels of its nature, like the Iguazú Falls in the Mesopotamia, the Perito Moreno Glacier in the Patagonia or the Calchaquí Valleys and the Puna in the Northwest. Argentina's main characteristic is the contrast between the plains and the Cordillera de los Andes.
The highest peak of the Western Hemisphere is the Aconcagua -6960 metres-, located in the ARGENTINA Andes. The Andes, from Tierra del Fuego to Jujuy, provides very different landscapes: extremely arid areas in the Altiplano, valleys, canyons and coloured hills, virgin woods and white glaciers in the Patagonia. Green hillocks, lagoons and marshes in the Mesopotamia that follow the ancient trace of the Paraná and the Uruguay Rivers. The Moconá Cascades and the exuberant Iguazú Falls surprise us in the middle of the subtropical forest .
The Argentinian Pampas, in the centre of the country, are the largest and most famous plains; only the Tandil and Ventana hills in the south and the Córdoba Hills in the West interrupt the landscape of the pampas. In the south of the country from the Andes to the sea, lie the sterile and rocky plateaux of the Patagonia, constantly flogged by the wind .The Atlantic littoral, skirted by high cliffs, has a sinuous shape, like Peninsula Valdés that is a refuge for marine animals.
