Geographical regions of Argentina:
  Antarctica and South Atlantic islands

The provinces of Argentina are often grouped into six geographical regions.


From West to East and North to South, these are:

Nevertheless, there are different approaches to the Argentine regions. The Pampas are often separated into Humid Pampa and Dry Pampas, and sometimes in Llanura Pampeana and Sierras Pampeanas. Other geographical analysis include other defined regions, being Comahue and Chaco Central among the most common.

Regardless of the regions system used, some provinces are shared by more than one region. For instance, Southwestern Santiago del Estero is sometimes considered part of the Sierras area, or even the Humid Pampa, while the Southern part of La Pampa is sometimes called Dry Pampa and included in Patagonia. Finally, La Rioja is sometimes considered part of Cuyo region instead of the Northwest.

Finally, the portion of the Antarctica claimed by Argentina is known as Argentine Antarctica, in which lay a number of Argentine bases.
