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.
