Where to go when - our guide to Salta and the northwest Andes

Salta Argentina

The weather in Salta and the northwest Andes is wide and varied

The landscapes of Salta and the northwest Andes vary from rust red canyons to verdant forests, pre-Columbian ruins to baroque colonial towns. Temperatures are mostly pleasant year round, with plenty of sun and little chance of rainfall April - October. The Train of the Clouds runs from April - November, ascending 4,200m above sea level over awe-inspiring scenery of gaping canyons. This is a focal point for many large-scale religious festivals, so it is worth planning well in advance if you wish to attend the most popular celebrations.
