El universo de los parques nacionales

A national park is a space of high natural and cultural value that is declared as a protected area, forcing the Nation to conserve the richness of its flora and fauna. When a  region has within its territory a large percentage of  national parks , we know in advance that we are facing places of  unique beauty . This is what happens in   Argentinian Patagonia  .

 Patagonia is located at the  southern end 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 characteristic types of  relief  . To the east, the  Patagonian plateau : its relief of stepped plains is cut by river valleys and 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, lies the  Andean subregion , the terrain of the  mountains , which coincides with 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 composed of  national parks .

Between these two major subregions, there is the  sub-region of extra-Andean Patagonia . It has a cold, dry climate, and a  steppe biome. In the Patagonian territory there are still remains of the last glaciation in the continental ice field, from which numerous glaciers come, such as the   Perito Moreno  .
