South America It is a land of contrasts, and not only because of the social inequalities that, unfortunately, do not stop growing in many of its countries, but because of the varied landscapes that can be found throughout the territory: from virgin forests, to impressive glaciers, passing through super arid deserts ...
Today at Hard Hobbit To Break we want to move to South America to discover 10 of its landscapes most spectacular. Of course, we ask for forgiveness in advance for all the places that have remained in the pipeline. Would you like to join us?
Los Roques, Venezuela
First of all, we want to talk about Los Roques, an archipelago of Venezuela that is located in the Caribbean Sea. Surprised for its importance ecological and, of course, for its beauty. And it is here that you can find lagoons, cays and beaches with white sand and crystal clear waters of incredible colors.
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
From Venezuela we moved to Bolivia to discover the Salar de Uyuni, the higher continuous and high salt desert of the world. Located in the southwest of the country, in the department of Potosí, it is one of the main tourist destinations in Bolivia and, in fact, different salt hotels have been built on the banks of the salar.
Laguna Colorada, Bolivia
We continue in Bolivia to tell you about the Laguna Colorada, which is located in the Eduardo Abaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve, in the Potosi altiplano. Surprised by the color reddish of its waters, which are rich in minerals. It is a breeding place for Andean flamingos.
Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina
The Perito Moreno Glacier could not be missing from this list, an impressive mass of ice located in the Lago Argentino department of the province of Santa Cruz, in the Patagonia Region. Every year, this glacier shows a surprising phenomenon: its ice mass advances causing the accumulation, rupture and detachment of gigantic blocks of ice.
Fernando de Noronha, Brazil
Among the many landscapes in Brazil that are worth knowing, today we want to highlight Fernando de Noronha, an archipelago declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due, among other things, to its having a delicate ecosystem. It belongs to the state of Pernambuco, and is located in the Atlantic Ocean, 545 kilometers from Recife.

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
We also want to talk about the Galapagos Islands, an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean located almost 1,000 kilometers from the coast of Ecuador, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The islands are known for the wide variety of species It houses, although its landscapes also surprise.
Torres del Paine, Chile
In Chile we can also find many surprising landscapes. One of them is Torres del Paine National Park, which offers a great variety of natural environments: mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes ...
Atacama desert, Chile
As it could not be otherwise, in Chile we must also highlight the Atacama Desert, considered the most non-polar desert arid of the planet. Extending through the Norte Grande of Chile, this eco-region is rich in metallic mineral resources.
Caño Cristales, Colombia
Finally, we want to talk about Caño Cristales, a Colombian river located in the Sierra de la Macarena, in the department of Meta, which is surprising for the color of its waters. And it is that in its route different tones can be observed: yellow, green, black, blue, red and pink.
