Ancient civilizations, striking landscapes and colonial cities.
A splendid colonial city with its own microclimate and charisma makes Salta a very pleasant place to stay. Our people on the ground will show you the true city and its rich history. After you’ve seen fine museums, done your handicraft shopping, and heard the local folkloric music, take a seat in one of the colourful plazas and watch the world go by.
From Salta excursions can be made into the contrasting hinterland: northwards to terracotta tinted canyons like Quebrada de Humahuaca dotted with little white churches. Head west on the ‘Train to the Clouds’ to the high Andes or south into a region of pretty vineyards around Cafayate. Beyond Jujuy, near the Bolivian border, encounter poncho clad indigenous people who weave and spin like their Inca forefathers.
A wonderful area of magical canyons, shimmering salt flats, tranquil villages, sophisticated wineries and enchanting people
When to go: March to December
