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 .
