Salta is known as “La Linda” (The Beautiful) and for good reason. Located in northern Argentina and filled with historic colonial architecture, year-round sunshine and a thriving outdoor café culture, Salta is also home to amazing natural landscapes. Deep gorges, colorful valleys and high plains make hiking and horse riding popular year-round activities, and in nearby Cafayate, local wineries produce some delicious varieties, including the sweet and light Torrontes. In addition, nearby Jujuy is home to the massive Salinas Grandes (Salt Flats), Humahuaca Gorge and the scenic Train to the Clouds.
Local residents are descended from the Aymara people (pre-Incans) and maintain much of their traditional culture. In fact, Argentine folk music (penas) may be heard at many local restaurants and bars, which is good news, as Salta is also known to have the best empanadas in South America. Salta is also the perfect place to start your adventures in the northwest of Argentina and onwards to Jujuy, Uyuni (Bolivia) and Atacama (Chile).
