Argentinian Railway

Once the primary means for long-distance travel in the county, the Argentinian railway is still among the most impressive in the world. Boasting the 8th biggest railroad network on the planet, the country is perfect for exploring it onboard a train. After all, can you think of a more exciting way to see its wonders? Although there is no high-speed railway in Argentina, the large segments of tracks all around the country were recently modified, allowing to service trains running at 160 km/h (99 mph). What is more, did you know that the scenic Argentine Republic is home to a few truly spectacular routes, providing some of the best views in the world? Among them, there are La Trochita, going along the foothills of the Andes, and Southern Fuegian Railway, the southernmost functioning rail in the world, going through the Tierra de Fuego National Park.
