Salta, ancient local traditions

Salta, ancient local traditions - 4 Days

4 Days / 3 Nights

Experiences:   Walking Tour, Road to the Clouds & Salt Flats, Seven Color Hill & Humahuaca.

Day 1
Arrive to Salta

Upon arrival to the airport, one of our representatives will be waiting for you. In the afternoon, you will be accompanied on a walking city tour visiting the main attractions of city downtown: churches, important buildings, famous streets, museums, markets and what is most important to feel like a real “salteno”: where to buy the best empanadas. Ask your travel specialist about what’s the nicest pena for tonight so you can discover northern folklore and music.

Day 2
The road to the Clouds

Today, you will be leaving on the first road adventure to the Andes, visiting two small charming towns: Tastil & San Antonio de los Cobres. You will get a feel of how life is in these two isolated places, as if time stays still. After free time for lunch, you will continue across the Puna to explore the large salt flats area. At Salinas Grandes you will lose sense of skyline as it merges with its reflections of the extreme bright white of the salt, a great opportunity to take funny and creative pictures. Get ready for an exciting road descent to beautiful Purmamarca, a small village with a magical background provided by Seven Colors hill, this is where you will spend the night.

Day 3
Continue along Humahuaca Gorge

Today we suggest having an early breakfast to get the most out of your leisurely morning. Explore the path to Cerro Siete Colores or hike through Los Colorados, a great opportunity for nice pictures with morning sunlight.

Your guide will pick you up to continue your adventure along the Humahuaca Gorge, visiting Tilcara and Pucara ruins, Uquia Church and Humahuaca city, where you will have free time to discover the Cathedral and handicrafts market. You will be back in Salta city in the evening.

Day 4
Leaving traditions behind

Today after breakfast, you will be taken to the airport to continue your travels.

If you have a few more hours in Salta, you might like to ask your travel specialist about the option of taking cooking classes or visiting Cabral Corral Dam.
