Condor – National Bird of Argentina flying over the Andes mountains

Cuyo is the region of the high peaks, the snow-covered volcanoes, and the large wilderness spreading from the Andes mountain range and foothills to the steppe.

The visit to Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), is a true journey to the dinosaurs era. The amazing diversity of forms and colours of its landscape shaped by erosion, is one of the world’s most important paleontologic sites.

Andean ducks, “vicuñas” and “guanacos” cohabit freely in parks and natural reserves, while condors (the national bird) fly over the area.

In the valleys of this region, Argentinean grapes, future world-renowned Argentinean wines, are grown.
