Argentina is a very large country with an area of more than 2.7 million sqkm (13 times the size of the United Kingdom); it is 3,700 km from north to south, and 1,400 km from east to west, but only has 43 million inhabitants.

Because of its size, Argentina is a country with a variety of landscapes and climates, including the Pampas (the plains to the west and south of Buenos Aires), the Gran Chaco region (in the north of the country, where there is cattle breeding and cotton cultivation, and subtropical forests), Mesopotamia (where livestock are maintained and one can admire the Iguazú Falls), Patagonia (with its semi-arid steppes in the north, cold and arid in the south, Tierra del Fuego, etc.) and, finally, the Cuyo region (in the west, dominated by the imposing Andes mountain range and the Aconcagua, 6,959 metres above sea level).
It is in these large open spaces, the 3.6 million hectares of the national parks and the 33 protected areas of the country, that one can admire almost four hundred animal species.

Argentina allows an authentic immersion in preserved areas as mythical as the Fitz Roy Massif, Tierra del Fuego, Valdes Peninsula and Patagonia, whilst offering a wide diversity of fauna ranging from lamas and pumas to whales and seals, etc.
