5 nature parks you can't miss

Nature reserves abound in Argentina, and there are for every taste. A list with some of the most wonderful ones for you to choose your park.


In a country that offers landscapes of all colors, there are plenty of options. Today we want to leave you a selection of 5 natural reserves in Argentina so you can choose in which park you are going to marvel on your next trip.

 Talampaya  National Park (La Rioja)

Considered a  World Heritage Site by Unesco , the park has 215,000 hectares full of magic. There you can visit  archaeological and paleontological  sites in a setting of incredible beauty. Some of its attractions are petroglyphs (designs carved stones) and the high reddish walls dating back millions of years. Its fauna is also remarkable: you can cross with maras and foxes, among other animals. You can tour it on your own or on guided excursions. For a different experience, an excussion with full moon or camping under the stars is also offered.

Ischigualasto National Park (San Juan)

Better known as the  Moon Valley , it offers a real journey into the past, millions of years ago. Also considered World Heritage, it houses  geological formations  that form the most complete continental set of fossils in the world corresponding to the Triassic. It is possible to tour it by private car or through guided tours. There are trekking circuits, biking and camping areas. Or, like Talampaya, you can also visit it at night.

Peninsula of Valdes (Chubut)

Sea lions and elephants, penguins, birds, guanacos and whales accompany you on a wonderful walk through this 360,000 hectares nature reserve, located 80 kilometers from the city of  Puerto Madryn . The beaches, Isla de los Pájaros and the cliffs are some of the treasures of the peninsula, in addition,  Puerto Pirámides , from where you can see the famous frank whales of the south.

Iguazu National Park (Misiones)

Recognized as a World Heritage Site since 1984, its waterfalls (originating about 200,000 years ago) are also one of the  Seven New Wonders of the World . Its star is undoubtedly La  Garganta del Diablo , a jump of 80 meters that expresses the strength of nature in all its magnitude.

Los Glaciares National Park (Santa Cruz)

World Heritage Site since the 1980s, it is the largest in the  Argentine National System of Protected Areas  with more than 700 thousand hectares. It also has  the largest ice cloak in the world  after Antarctica. Mountains, lakes and forests complete a landscape that is difficult to tell in words. It has  47 glaciers  of great magnitude; among them, the famous  Perito Moreno  . There are also Uppsala and Spegazzini.
