SALTA & VALLES CALCHAQUIES

Tour Salta, try argentine wines & explore Calchaqui Valley - 5 days

Discover one of the most beautiful colonial cities of northern Argentina, Salta. Tour the Calchaqui Valley and explore traditional mountain villages as the landscape colors your imagination. From Cachi’s stunning gorges to Cafayate’s wineries, enjoy the traditional culture of the Salta region on this 5 day excursion to northern Argentina.

Day 1 – Your Adventure in Argentina, starts in Salta!

Welcome to Salta! One of traveler’s favorite cities, Salta offers outstanding museums, colonial architecture, alive cafés in the main plaza (great people watching spot) and the vibrant and authentic peñas -places where locals grab a table to watch their favorite folkloric singers and after a wine (or two) everyone join for dancing. The perfect base to explore the Argentinean north.

Upon arrival you will be driven to your hotel (shared service) having the rest of the afternoon to explore the town. Since city stress has not arrived here, bare in mind that during siesta time most shops are closed.

Day 2 – Salta Tours: Calchaqui Valley Excursion

You will leave Salta in a two-day excursion (shared service). We recommend you to leave your luggage in your hotel in Salta, and just take a day pack on the excursion.

 

You will be picked up from your hotel in the early morning leaving Lerma Valley behind to enjoy one of the gems of the northwest: The Calchaqui Valley. We drive through the beautiful and green Laureles and Escoipe gorges. The scenery slowly changes its shape and color while we climb the majestic Cuesta del Obispo up to its highest point, at 3000 m.a.s.l. Later on, we go down to “Los Cardones” National Park, where we visit a place surrounded by multicolored landscapes and fresh, unpolluted air. Feel the silence and get close to nature in this isolated spot! We then visit Cachi, a typical town where the architecture beautifully combines indigenous and Spanish traditions. In the afternoon we continue our trip to the south visiting the towns of Molinos and Angastaco.

 

We continue through Las Flechas Gorge to finally arrive to Cafayate, a picturesque town surrounded by wineries. We recommend to enjoy a sunset drink in the tranquil main square or a Malbec icecream on the traditional Gelatto Shop a couple of blocks away. 

 

There is a visit to a couple wineries near the town programmed while you stay in the town, according to schedules and whether it can be done the day of arrival or the next one.

 

You will spend the night at Cafayate.

Day 3 – Salta Tours: Calchaqui Valley Excursion (Part Two)

You will leave Cafayate to take the road 68 (shared service), along the famous gorge where the erosion has carved interesting shapes into the rocks. Along the way, we will take our time to stop, walk around and appreciate the impressive landscapes.

 

This area was declared Reserva Provincial for its colorful hills and unique natural formations. Each of the hills has distinctly shaped features including the Devil’s Throat, the Amphitheater, the Frog, the Obelisk and the Castles.

 

Keep an eye to appreciate the colors and the dry and dramatic landscape.

 

You will arrive back to Salta. We highly recommend to visit a Peña and mix with the locals eating empanadas and dancing Folklore.

The trip was fabulous. EVERYTHING was taken care of.

Hello Patty,

Sorry this has taken so long! I am on Facebook and have shared SO many pictures on there so feel free to use them as needed. Here is my survey, feel free to use it as well!

My friend Don and Julie Weissbanger had used your agency three years ago and recommended you highly. I was trying to do my own research and set everything up and I was completely overwhelmed and confused on my own.
EVERYTHING was taken care of and I had a phone to call 24 hours/day, my highlight of traveling with you!
I loved every accommodation for it's own reasons but Sheraton Iguazu and Dazzler Palermo were probably my favorites for their location and service.

SOOOO many guides that were great but Federico in Salta and 2 tour guides in Easter Island (julia and teranji) really stand out . Easter Island tours were perfect. Guides were so knowledgeable and answered our numerous questions with accuracy.

I only would have liked more breakfast choices for a vegetarian and I wish I could have pre-paid for dinner and had it at the hotels. Most of our hotels arranged for dinner if planned ahead of time. When I asked about that during planning, I was told it was not possible. I was usually tired after a full day of activity and I just wanted something easy and convenient. I know most people like to try new restaurants but I'm not like that.

All of our pick ups, drop offs, tours were PERFECT until we got to Buenos Aires. Which I thought would the best since we were in Sayhueque's home town. Our Dinner/Tango pick up was late picking us up and it took 1.5 hours to pick up everyone else! I felt the Dinner/Tango place was out to simply make money off tourists. They constantly trying to sell programs, CDs, etc so they would not let us take even one photo of the show. They didn't tell me they didn't have my ONE vegetarian ravioli as a choice so they simply brought me spaghetti. No explanation until I asked. The getting back on the bus to our hotel was a bit of a confusing mess. Show was good though so other issues not really a big deal.
The tour I was most unhappy with was our two city tours. Santiago tour was late pick up but guide was good so all was forgotten. The worst was our Buenos Aires city tour. Each stop to pick up others was at least 10 - 15 minutes and passengers weren't ready. Tour guide was CONSTANTLY on the phone and would stop mid sentence to answer her phone. Then she asked where we wanted to stay at the end of the tour ( go back to hotel or stay in Recoleta). It felt like a rushed decision bc we didn't know which area we wanted to visit. But she seemed like she was just happy to get rid of us, so we left after the cemetery and had a fabulous day on our own.

STILL trip was fabulous!!

IF you have more questions, I'd be happy to give you more positive feedback. Hotels were clean, great staff, well situated and in safe areas so we could explore on foot easily. LOVED having access to Patty
