The Calchaqui Valley is a grand and ancient landscape set to the south of Salta City.

Very much the Wild West of Argentina, this is scenery on an epic scale, with arid canyons and mountains flanking the dusty elegance of sleepy colonial towns. A must see destination to get the most out of any of our Argentina tours.

It’s best enjoyed as travel in its purest form; a road trip. Take the road winding through mountain passes; endless cactus deserts and startling vistas formed by the seasonal rains’ carving of ancient rock formations.

Our guides know how best to explore this unforgiving landscape, bringing you to interesting and secluded spots to enjoy privileged views of this beautiful part of Argentina.
