Luxury travel to Salta

Colonial City and the Gateway to the North West

Salta is a gateway city in the north west of Argentina. Nicknamed ‘La Linda’ (the beautiful) it was founded in the foothills of the Andes in colonial times, intended as staging point between Lima and Buenos Aires. Today, it serves as a convenient and interesting stop on many of our Argentina tours

Beautiful colonial buildings can be found in the heart of the old town, but the real reason most visit Salta during one of our Argentina tours is a means of exploring the rest of this grand province and beyond.

The city sits in a fertile green valley surrounded by more adventurous and dramatic landscapes just a short drive away. It’s an ideal place to relax and soak up the pleasant climate for a few days before or after your adventures in the brightly coloured mountains and canyons.

When to go

All year round, though January and February are the wetter months.

What to do
  • Horseriding

  • Exploring the magnificent surrounding landscape
