Take a quick look at the optional trips to discover Argentina!
Trip to NOA – Northwest of Argentina
Firstly we will go through villages, like Cerrilos, La Merced, El Carril, etc, that are in the valley. Then we will enter La Quebrada de las Conchas, where we will be able to see how the water and wind erosion in the mountains has created a sample of capricious shapes and fantastic colors, and thus we are able to see formations like “El Monje”, “El Hongo”, “El Anfíteatro”, “La Garganta del Diablo” y “Los Castillos”. As we continue on the tour we will arrive at Cafayate, a picturesque town famous for its vineyards and wines which is emphasized within the whiteness of el Torrontés. Before returning to Salta, we will visit the Museum of Grapevines and Wine-Making Production, take part in a wine-tasting activity and take a walk through the city.
2,324 metres (7,625 feet) away is a small town with 600 inhabitants situated close to the beginning of the Quebrada de Humahuaca. The surroundings are beautiful (Cerro de Siete Colores, Paseo de los Colorados, etc), and there are a variety of impressive architectural structures around the square.
After visiting Purmamarca, we will go to Salinas Grandes, crossing the incredible Cuesta de Lipán and reaching the path at 4,170 metres (13, 681 feet). After this the descent begins, during which we can see the wild llamas and donkeys, to las Salinas Grandes, a lagoon measuring hundreds of kilometers squared when sal is extracted for human consumption. It is an incredible, completely white landscape.
Situated 3,149 meters (10.300 feet) away is a city of la Quebrada de Humahuaca with a great number of services and has main attractions like el Pucará de Tilcara (the largest indigenous settling that can be visited in the region) and el Cañón called “The Devil’s Throat”.
A city that was one of the greatest helps in supporting the country during the war of independence. The Monument that recalls that period of time is one of the attractions to visit, like the fruit, meat and vegetable markets where one can see, amongst other things, the great variety of Andean potatoes in the country.
The path to arrive at Iruya is one of the most incredible paths in the world. It’s landscapes, the altitude where it is situated and how the people live there all honestly seem like something out of a scene of a film.
The Igazú waterfalls (one of the 7 natural wonders of the World) are located on the Iguazú river, on the border between the Argentinian province of Misiones and the Brasilian state of Paraná. They are inside 2 national parks: the Argentinian section in the Iguazú national park and the Brasilian section in the Iguaçu national park. These waterfalls are formed by 270 waterfalls, 80% are on the Argentine side and 20% on the Brasilian side. The impressive spectacle includes its huge volume of water, height (80 meters) and the Devil’s throat, which we will be able to see by walking through the walkways on the Brasilian side and also by rafting through the water. An unforgettable place.
