Because travelers love to inspire with the most beautiful landscapes in South America, here is a review from north to south of the most spectacular and unknown places that luxury destinations Argentina offers.
- Cone of Arita, Salta
The Cone of Arita is a 147-meter-high natural pyramid. Almost surreal in appearance, the cone is in the middle of the SalarArizaro plain, the third largest salt flat in South America. Some legends point out that the natural formation could have been used as an Inca ceremonial center.
- Bathed the Star, Formosa
Bañado la Estrella was recently chosen as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Argentina, Bañado La Estrella is the second largest wetland in Argentina. This place is a paradise of vegetation thanks to the shallow depth of the wetland. This honeymoon travel is abundant in fauna, with animals such as capybara, yacare and some species of aquatic snakes.
- Salar de Antofalla, Catamarca
The Antofalla salt flat is an immense salt desert found in the department of Antofagasta de la Sierra. The salt flat is at 3900 masl, it is the longest in the world, and it is probably the most inhospitable and inaccessible place in the Argentine Puna. There is no vegetation here, only whimsical shapes and colors thanks to the erosion of the landscape for millennia.
- Campo de Piedra Pómez, Catamarca
Probably the closest thing to a lunar landscape here on earth, Campo de Piedra Pómez is a truly unique geological and natural paradise on the planet. Although it is a Natural Protected Area in Argentina, much greater protection has been demanded, since vehicles and motorcycles enter without control every day, generating irreparable damage to the structures.
- Cerro Alcázar, San Juan
The inspiring Cerro Alcázar is located in the Sierra del Tontal. The best time to contemplate it is during sunset, when the sun is lost between the peaks of the mountain range and the tones of its sediments change elegantly.
- Salto del Agrio, Neuquén
The imposing Salto del Agrio is 60 meters high and has a sublime beauty around it. The landscape is dominated by the Copahue volcano, in addition to dozens of araucarias that protect and give life to the sector. Mapuches from the area say that this was a place of worship and gratitude for thousands of years.
- Los Bolillos, Neuquén
The action of the wind makes its own again in this corner of the Varvarco River Valley. Cones, domes and stone needles of multiple reddish tones are observed in the sector, with some reaching even 20 meters in height. Los Bolillos is one of the luxury destinations in Argentina which is surrounded by the snowy peaks of the Andes Mountains and the Domuyo system.
- Enchanted Valley, Río Negro
With a landscape that looks like something out of a fantasy movie, the Enchanted Valley is located on the banks of the Limay River. The rock formations that protect the valley are of volcanic origin and have received popular names such as “The Finger of God”, “The Sentinel of the Valley” or the “Chilean Mount”.
- Jaramillo Petrified Forest, Santa Cruz
Despite being a National Park, the Jaramillo Petrified Forest rests practically alone in the province of Santa Cruz, and perhaps it is better that way. Relative fossils of araucarias are found in the sector, some of which reach 35 meters long and 3 meters in diameter, surely the largest known in the world. The fossils are around 150 million years old.
- Laguna del Caminante, Tierra del Fuego
Located inside the Tierra del Fuego National Park, the Caminante Lagoon is one of the most beautiful points of contemplation in this corner at the end of the world. On a luxury honeymoon traveltour that can take 2 or 3 days, the trail runs through the beautiful Patagonian forests of Tierra del Fuego, with incredible views of numerous mountains and glaciers.
