Argentina   |  4 Nights

Exceptional Experiences

  • Salta City tour
  • Tour to the Humahuaca Gorge
  • Discover the salt deserts "salinas grandes" guided by a local salinero
  • One night stay with a local family in a typical "adobe" house

 

With landscapes and traditions that can seem worlds apart compared to other regions of Argentina, the country’s northwest is sure to surprise and amaze you. Discover the unique natural beauty of Jujuy and Salta - the huge gorges, the low valleys and the distinctive red sand of the desert. 

You’ll tour through and explore the colonial city of Salta with a guide, learning about its history and renowned architecture before making the journey towards the province’s salt flats, which is an experience not to be missed. With the hot sun beating down and reflecting off the salt, vast stretches of flat land reaching the horizon in every direction and literally nothing in sight for several miles, the experience is captivating and somewhat eerie.  

In Ocumazo, the local people will warmly receive you and help you discover the spirit of the Andean culture. It’s here that you’ll get a sense of life in these parts as you enjoy self-produced food, spend time with the village people and take in the unique ambience of these villages.
