Traveling to the Argentine North opens the door to a territory of different shapes and contrasts.

This is, without a doubt, the area with the most “historical” and “traditional” life, a place where Pre-Columbian civilizations co-exist with a colonial past, and a present with strong folkloric roots. Throughout our trip, we visit the most relevant spots of the Quebrada de Humahuaca and the Calchaquíes Valleys.. It starts in San Salvador de Jujut and end’s in Salta City. Salta is the Argentine city where the Spanish influence is best preserved. Enjoy its elegance which gives testimony of the sumptuous past, which is still alive in the large old houses and flowery courtyards. Also visit Cafayate, a beautiful village in the Calchaquí Valleys, famous for its wine production. Do not miss the beautiful landscapes of the Humahuaca Gorge with its old towns full of history and tradition.
