Patagonia

Patagonia Semiarid scrub plateau, southern Argentina. It is the largest desert region in the Americas, with an area of about 260,000 sq mi (673,000 sq kin). Patagonia extends from the Rio Negro south to Tierra del Fuego. Its approximate boundaries are the COLORADO RIVER in the north, the Atlantic Ocean in the east, the Coig River in the south, and the ANDES MOUNTAINS in the west. A region of vast and virtually treeless plains, it has a variety of wildlife, including llamas, pumas, and eagles. Natural resources include petroleum, iron ore, copper, uranium, and manganese. A harsh climate and Patagonia’s geological curiosities have produced some of the most beautiful natural attractions in the world.

This vast, sparsely settled region lies in the rain shadow of the Southern Andes and is mostly a wind-swept semi-desert. Here ecotourism is growing in popularity based on the wildlife resources of the Valdés Peninsula and the mountain, lake and glacier scenery of Los Glaciares National Park. All-terrain vehicles provide access for tour groups reaching as far south as Ushuaia, Argentina’s gateway to Antarctica.
