See north west Argentina on foot
Explore canyons and indigenous villages on a journey through Salta’s Wild West landscapes.
We think walking is a great way to experience the eye-popping scenery of Argentina’s arid north west. This is a dramatic landscape typified by red and ochre tones, cleaved by jagged canyons and cloaked in bristling cacti.
Our short walks explore the best of the Salta region, combining a series of easy to moderate trails with cultural insights. There’s the chance to explore rustic towns, enjoy local folk music, eat at a traditional peña and even take a wine-tasting tour of the bodegas of the Calchaquíes valley. You'll be at comfortable altitudes, for the most part below 2,500m above sea level.
You’ll explore the towns of Cachí and Purmamarca and the Humahuaca and Obispo Gorges, stopping for arresting views over crumpled sheets of wind-eroded rock and mountains etched with remarkable colours, from burnt orange to purple.
