Explore this incredible and unique region of Argentina. This eight-day Argentinian journey is the perfect extension add-on to any itinerary, departing from and returning back to Salta, and has been carefully curated to show you the highlights of the region.
Arguably the most beautiful part of Argentina is around Salta, in the country's northwest. The variation of scenery is simply amazing and unmatched anywhere in South America with its wine region, Andean puna (grassland), bright red gorges, jagged mountain valleys, salt flats, jungle, and arid deserts. During the eight days, you will explore the streets of Salta and travel one of the most spectacular paths of the Argentinean Northwest.
Passing through the green jungle of the Yungas to the semi-deserted Calchaqui Valleys, you'll also spend time in Cafayate, known as the 'Tuscany of Argentina', where you can sample some of the best wines in the country. Then, leisurely stroll between the local bodegas, located all over the villages, before taking route 52, which connects Argentina and Chile, driving up the Lipan Pass between the Eastern and Western Andes Mountain Range.
You'll view the expansive Salt Flats, known as the 'Salinas Grandes', surrounded by volcanoes and a seemingly endless horizon. Finally, you'll get to explore the town of Purmamarca and Los Colorados, a red rocky path hidden behind the Seven-Coloured Hills, a site not to be missed, before the journey leads you back to Salta.
