At a glance

A trip to the less frequented and authentic side of Argentina, where you can see centuries old culture in the sleepy towns of the north west’s scenic, frontier-like region. A land of adobe churches, pink dusty streets, canyons, salt flats, vineyards and ancient cultures.

Begin in the historic city of Salta, before venturing north to the Quebrada Humahuaca. Small ‘pueblos’ are caught between multi-coloured hills here, whilst the Salinas Grandes salt flats can be visited to the west. Onward you travel south through spectacular landscapes, where the journey itself is as much a pleasure as the final destination deep in Calchaqui Valley. After exploring here, you travel further south to the wine regions of Cafayate to relax and sample some of Argentina’s best wines in idyllic, rustic settings. You will then finish your trip with a short stay in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires.

It's entirely up to you how you spend your time here in Salta. The charming city was founded in 1582 and still keeps colonial style architecture, framed by the hills of the Lerma Valley.

To give you an idea, we can arrange for private tours of the city with one of our expert guides, further afield excursions to the regional vineyards of Cafayate (wine tastings, dine in the bodegas, tours of the wineries), or to the traditional pueblos of the Altiplano.

Calchaqui

Your guide will pick you up for this stunning journey from your hotel in Salta. Initially you wind through lush tropical forest before heading over the top of the mountains and into the Altiplano. Travel through the amazing Los Cardones National Park full of many thousands of cacti and Los Colorados desert before stopping for lunch at the picturesque town of Molinos.

You then drive on, entering the real adventure as your guide brings you through dusty unpaved roads, fording rivers and streams, and winding through massive rock formations to reach your chosen hotel in the Calchaqui area.

Visit local colonial towns unchanged for centuries, high altitude wineries, to horse riding and generally unwinding in this scenic and relatively unknown corner of Argentina.

Days 8-11

Cafayate

Private tour from Calchaqui to Cafayate Private tour from Calchaqui to Cafayate

Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and bring you on one of the most stunning journeys in Northwest Argentina, the Quebrada das Flechas. The unpaved road winds around hills and cuts through giant rocks, and the unique sedimentary formations jutting at 45-degree angles give the "Gorge of Arrows" its distinctive name.

After the breath-taking journey you arrive in the peaceful town of Cafayate, and delivered to your chosen hotel there.

Two days in Cafayate Two days in Cafayate

Often referred to as Argentina's Tuscany, this is the country's lesser known wine region where the pace is slow, its Cabernet Sauvignons are sweetly perfumed, and its boutique wineries are rustic and known for their Torrontes and Tannat. For something a little more active, there's horse riding, hiking and historical villages to try out.
