The history of the Dakar in South America in July reached a new milestone with the development of the Desafio Litoral, the first edition of the Dakar Series competition to be held in this part of the world, linking Argentine provinces of Misiones, Corrientes and Chaco in a six-day contest of more than 1,600 kilometers.
From the majesty of Iguazú Waterfalls to the immensity of the “Impenetrable Chaqueño”, “Desafio Litoral” proposes a sports event without precedents in this region of South America, going through amazing roads and impresive views of the magnificent enviroment arround this part of Argentina.
A true challenge:
With almost 3,500 kilometers away from the northern border and the southern end of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina has the wingspan of a State-continent. Its extension, both in the north-south and east-west, gives the country several faces. The variety is certainly one of their distinctive characteristics.
Desafio Litoral will allow to descover one of the most outstanding region of the last times in Argentina, called Litoral Mesopotamico, an area with big rivers of the humid tropics, of the red land and of the forest cover with big trees, with extrordinary fauna and flora. Big Water – Iguazu, in guarany language – where nature overflowing into one of the world’s wonders: Catarata Falls.
One scene of exuberant beauty that extends through the Iguazu National Park, Moconà Saltos, National Park Rio Pilcomayo, National Park El Palmar, Esteros del Ibera or the plains chaqueñas.
The amazing and outstanding nature, where the Jesuitic Ruins of Misiones, declared by UNESCO Humanity Cultural Patrimony, are the live testimony of Compañia de Jesus.
