Argentina is a favorite destination of travelers and backpackers, mainly because of its beautiful landscapes. Outdoor enthusiasts not only get challenged by the Patagonia, but also love trek along the other wonders of nature present in the country.
So what are the best natural landscapes to visit when you travel to Argentina?
1. Cataratas de Iguazu
Located in between the Brazil-Argentina border is the country’s most tourist attraction, the Iguazu Falls. Just imagine over a million gallons of water flowing down the cliff as high as the Statue of Liberty every second. The Iguazu Falls is probably the most important destination of Argentina, not only because of its majestic waters, but also of its cliffs and high altitude thrills that you cannot find anywhere else.
At the heart of the Iguazu is the Devil’s Throat, the fiercest part of the falls. This falls gives everyone vertigo-you can’t really tell whether the water is falling, climbing, or moving from side to side.
2. Quebrada de Humahuaca
Quebrada de Humahuaca is becoming more and more popular these days thanks to its tourist stops such as the Tilcara. This 100-mile long gorge serves as a cut through the high Juyjuy plains, the country’s northernmost tip.
It is in Humahuaca can you find the Andean Altiplano, and the Cerro de Los Siete Colores, where the hills change from color to color thanks to its glowing rock sediments.
3. Valle de la Luna
The Valley of the Moon is known for its eerie and arid plain, but that’s what makes it famous. The terrains reddish hue and dry path gives it an extraterrestrial vibe, thus you’d really feel like you’re on the moon-or even in Mars.
