Mina Clavero River, in Cordoba
Its source in the Pampa de Achala is the product of the confluence of streams and streams that make it fresh, crystal clear and torrential. Its cold waters, mineralized thanks to the rock corridor, are famous for being curative.
Nahuel Huapi National Park, in Neuquén and Río Negro
It is the oldest national park in the country and it is home to humid and cold forests, eternal snow on its most iconic hills and a wide variety of lakes, streams and rivers.

The 400,000 hectares (300 kilometers long and 10 to 20 km wide) of the Bañado make it the third in terms of area in the Southern Cone.
