Inspired on a part of the Itinerary prepared to Susan and Tom, this is a journey to Argentina’s Northwest, a trip where landscape meets culture. Explore the charming city of Salta and the smalls towns that make our north so unique. Discover Cafayate, in the Calchaqui Valley, surrounded by vineyards and unusual rock formations. Enjoy a scenic drive to Cachi and say goodbye to this little town through Los Cardones National Park, where you will be surrounded by giant cactus. Continue this journey to Purmamarca, in Jujuy province. Visit the Big Salt Plains, a vast desert of salt, and head to Quebrada de Humahuaca where the views will take your breath.
Our first request for information was answered promptly. We let Nico know of our interests and the time we had available. He sent us a prospective itinerary that showed us he had heard what we were looking for. We worked together to come up with what my husband and I thought was a perfect trip. I would recommend this agency to anyone looking for a unique, personal Argentine experience.

Best of this tour: Ideal trip for those travelers wishing to get in contact with Argentina’s culture and experience the stunning landscapes of our country. One of our special travelers has highlighted the ‘’horseback riding and llama trek in the Northwest’’. Personally, I think staying one or two nights in Cafayate and having the Andes as background is amazing!
What would you do differently? Adding an overnight at Colome vineyard property would be a great idea, to enjoy more time in the northwest and not rush the 4×4 experience through Quebradas and Valleys. Also, an exclusive visit to James Turell museum could be arranged, which is the only one dedicated exclusively to the work of this prestigious American artist.
