El Impenetrable National Park


It is one of the largest national parks in northern Argentina and safeguards the largest remnant of the Chaco Impenetrable, between the Teuco-Bermejo and Bermejito Rivers. It is gradually emerging as one of the best destinations to observe wildlife (including tapirs, peccaries and anteaters) and invites you to discover the cultural richness of the neighbouring indigenous communities and creole communities.

Visits are recommended between April and October. Free-of-charge.

What to see
Inside the park

Access to the National Park is at Paraje La Armonía. The offer within the park is still limited: there are pedestrian trails and a vehicle path of about 22 km long. Circuits allow access to viewpoints, where you can appreciate quebrachos, carob trees, gallery forests, holy wood and lagoons. You can see animals such as tapir, anteater, peccaries and more than 330 species of birds preserved in the region.

Adventure at the park

In search of more adventure, in Paraje La Armonía and in Nueva Población (40 km from La Armonía), you can rent kayaks, bicycles or hike in the company of local guides to enjoy nature from another perspective.


The cultural richness is another strong point of the villages and places surrounding the park. In the Paraje Nueva Población and in Misión Nueva Pompeya (60 km from La Armonía), there are Wichi ethnic group communities that offer handicraft workshops to visitors. 

In Juan José Castelli and in Miraflores, indigenous communities (mainly Qom), Creoles and descendants of German and Russian immigrants, invite you to share local traditions and meals. There are several groups of Qom artisans who work with palm, chaguar, and wood.

How to get there and move around

From Resistencia to Juan José Castelli there are 280 km (along National Route 16 and Provincial Route 9, both paved). From there, take Provincial Route 9 to Miraflores (47 km, also paved) to the park’s Administration Office. 


Then you must follow 60 km (2 hours approx.) by a dirt road in a 4WD vehicle to Paraje La Armonía, access point to the national park. Check the condition of the roads.

Where to stay

In La Armonía, there is a glamping project with triple tents that is part of a plan to strengthen local communities. On the Bermejo River, inside the park, there is a camping area. You can also stay in Juan José Castelli and Miraflores. Both towns have hotels, grocery stores, a petrol station and ATMs.
