Argentina is nearly 3.700 km long from North to South and 1.400 km from East to West (altough the distances change widely) Argentina can roughly be divided into three parts: the fertile plains of the Pampas in the central part of the country, the centre of Argentina's agricultural wealth; the flat to rolling plateau of Patagonia in the southern half down to Tierra del Fuego; and the rugged Andes mountain range along the western border with Chile, with the highest point lays in the province of Mendoza. It is the Cerro Aconcagua at 6,960 metres (22,834 ft), which is the continent's highest mountain.
The plains in Argentina have many differences: West and South from Buenos Aires they are one of the most fertile plains in the World. The western part of La Pampa province and the province San Luis have also plains, but they are dryer. In the North of the country the plains are called Gran Chaco, which is a great source of Timber and Tannin.
The steppes and plains, of Patagonia from the Tertiary period are in the provinces of Neuquen, Rio Negro, Chubut and Santa Cruz. The first human settlement dates back to the 10th Century. The first european to reach this zone was Ferdinand Magellan and the first to traverse the patagonian plain was Rodrigo de la Isla.
Major rivers include the Paraguay, Bermejo, Colorado, Uruguay and the largest river, the Paraná. The latter two flow together before meeting the Atlantic Ocean, forming the estuary of the Río de la Plata. The land between these both is called Mesopotamia and that land is shared by the provinces of Misiones, Corrientes and Entre Rios. The Argentine climate is predominantly temperate with extremes ranging from subtropical in the north to arid/sub-Antarctic in far south.
The country has a Claim over Antarctica, in where it has maintaned constant occupance for more than a century.
