Between the Andes and the Atlantic Ocean, way down at the southern end of South America, is Patagonia, with its perfect combination of lakes, rivers, mountains, valleys and endless steppe. A large part of it is in Argentina, with some of it also in Chile.
If you're coming from Buenos Aires, it's a long drive on open highways. It'll be the right trip for you if you're adventurous and want to see beautiful landscapes with mountains and snow. It's 3,000 km (1,864 miles) from Buenos Aires to Tierra del Fuego, in the extreme south. But you can get a feel for what the regions like in La Pampa, which is just 607 km (337 miles) from Buenos Aires. In La Pampa you can see what life in the countryside is like and enjoy ecotourism.
South of there lies Neuquén, which attracts visitors with its exuberant beauty that includes lakes, mountains and forests. In Rio Negro, at the foot of the Andes Range, is Barlioche – Argentina's largest ski resort and a great place to stop to enjoy the Alpine landscape.
At the southernmost point of land before reaching Antarctica, on the island of Tierra del Fuego, you'll find the main attractions of Argentine Patagonia, such as Glaciers National Park, in El Calafate, where the impressive Perito Moreno Glacier is located, El Chaltén and Ushuaia.
Ushuaia, the regional capital, has been famous for centuries because of its vegetation, climate and fauna. Here you'll find options for all kinds of tourists, including winter sports, unparalleled landscapes, shopping and restaurants to satisfy every visitor.
