Let's Explore Argentina

Perito Moreno Glacier

For several reasons, the Perito Moreno Glacier in Los Glaciares National Park just outside the town of El Calafate in the south-west of the country is notable. One, it’s hypocrisy. Two, it is one of the few glaciers that grows rather than shrinks, expanding by up to two metres a day – you can even see parts of the towering 60-meter glacier crashing down into the water as you stand there.

Iguazu Falls

One of the world’s seven natural wonders, the north of Argentina’s Iguazu Falls lies in the midst of a rainforest that links the country to Brazil. The falls, which form part of the churning river Iguazú, are located in Misiones, Argentina’s Iguazú National Park. Information for visitors here.

The Marble Caves

The Marble Caves are in Chile, but they are so close to the Argentinean border and so beautiful that they have to be included! The caves were sculpted out of marble over thousands of years by water erosion in a lake straddling the two countries, resulting in cathedral-like arcs.
