Argentina: Salta and the northwest Andes

Visit Us

Spiritually and culturally closer to the neighbouring Andean countries than the rest of Argentina, the remote northwest provinces have loads of attractions for visitors. These range from snow-dipped peaks, salt flats and arid, rust red canyons to lush forests, pre-Columbian ruins, lonely lime-washed chapels and a necklet of baroque colonial towns. The sunlit slopes are cloaked with vineyards, and everywhere there’s a warm welcome from the local people, many of whom have indian roots. At 1,200m above sea level, Salta is a delightful base for exploration of the region with a sumptuous cathedral, palm-shaded plazas and a cable car lift for views over the fertile countryside.

What our experts say

Salta is a lovely, friendly city and a good base for exploring the the canyon and vineyards in the vicinity. It is also the launching pad for trips to visit the Puna, a virtually uninhabited region of indescribably beautiful high-altitude, alien desert landscapes. Visits to abandoned mines and tiny communities characterise what is a haunting, fascinating experience.  One of my favourite ever expeditions in Latin America.
