Nihuil dunes: a world of sand

We invite you to visit the Nihuil Dunes, in Mendoza, and feel like a desert explorer for a while. Encourage yourself to this different adventure.

Dunas del Nihuil

In Argentina it is possible to experience all kinds of adventures. Today we want to tell you about a very special that you can enjoy in the province of Mendoza: the dunes of Nihuil, a unique sand circuit in our country.

Las Dunas del Nihuil are located in the vicinity of San Rafael, in the south of the province. It is an extensive desert of 30 thousand hectares formed by the accumulation of tons of volcanic sand. The hills of the dunes reach more than 200 meters in height.

While it's not easy to get to the area, it's worth the effort. To arrive at the place you must have vehicles that adapt to the terrain and have the company of a guide who knows the area. Do you dare to embark on this adventure?
