Description

Promotion of two full days in the province of Salta. Hiring these two excursions you visit the following places: We will travel to Cafayate city, the land of wines, located in the Calchaquí Valley, 180 km away from the capital of Salta, through one of the most impressive and renowned routes in the North of Argentina. We will depart from Salta city, touring the center and south of the Lerma Valley, to then enter the Las Conchas gorge's Natural Reserve. A low-altitude road takes us through a narrow valley surrounded by colorful hills, where the colors orange and red are the highlights. Here we will find geoforms carved by nature such as La Garganta del Diablo (The Devil's throat), El Amphitheatre (The Anfitheatre), The Windows, The Castles, La Yesera, The Toad, The Friar, The Obelisk, etc. In Cafayate you will have the chance to visit a winery, with tasting of the best wines in the area. After lunch, we return to Salta by the same route. Leaving the fertile Lerma Valley behind, we ascend through Escoipe Gorge and continue along the imposing Cuesta del Obispo and Enchanted Valley, surrounded by mountains. After visiting The Windmill Stone (at 3,400 meters above sea level) you will be crossing Los Cardones National Park. The magical little town of Cachi, located at the foot of the snow-capped mountain of the same name (6,320 meters above sea level) is characterized by its colonial-style facades, with large houses sitting on the edge of narrow, cobbled streets. We will visit the Lerma Valley, El Carril, El Maray, Calchaquí Valley, Escoipe Gorge, Cuesta del Obispo, Enchanted Valley, The Windmill Stone (3348 meters above sea level), Recta del Tin Tin (an 11-kilomoters long road built by the Incas), Los Cardones National Park (the only high-altitude National Park in Argentina), Sighting of Cachi's Snowpeaks (6,380 meters above sea level) and 2 free hours Cachi town.
