A national park is a space of high natural and cultural value that is declared a protected area, forcing the Nation to conserve the richness of its flora and fauna. When a region has a large percentage of national parks within its territory, we know in advance that we are facing places of unique beauty . This is what happens in Argentinian Patagonia .
Patagonia is located in the southern tip of the American continent and covers the southernmost provinces: Neuquén, Río Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego , Antarctica and South Atlantic Islands. It also comprises a very small portion of the south of La Pampa, Mendoza and Buenos Aires.
The Patagonian region shows three types of characteristic relief . To the east, the Patagonian plateau : its relief of stepped plains is cut by river valleys and by low. The action of the plateau raises the coast, where it forms numerous accidents: capes, tips, coves, caves, islands, bays and various beaches.
To the west is the Andean subregion , the terrain of the mountains , which matches the Patagonian Andes. The vegetation is divided into Patagonian Andean forest and Magellanic subpolar forest. It is an area rich in lakes and most of its territory is made up of national parks .
Between these two large subregions, is the subregion of Extra Andean Patagonia . It has a cold and dry climate, and a steppe biome. In Patagonian territory there are still remains of the last glaciation in the continental ice field, from which many glaciers come, such as Perito Moreno .
