salta province & northwest

Brimming with amazing desert landscapes, stunning scenery, indigenous cultures and fantastic wineries, the area of Salta and Argentina’s northwest is one of the most fascinating regions you will ever encounter.

Salta Province alone is nearly twice the size of Ireland, with everything from the mighty Andes to dense cloud forest waiting to be explored. Unlike the rest of Argentina which is primarily of European origin, the people of Salta maintain their indigenous ethnicity and their cultural ties to their Inca heritage. There’s also the beautiful oasis winery area of Cafayate which you can combine with a beautiful drive through traditional Cachi, all to the south of Salta. Its also a great starting point to explore neighbouring Bolivia and Chile

things to do

  • With a colonial history dating back to 1535, the city of Salta is where the old world collides with the new. Spend a day or two to take exploring fascinating museums and enjoy its many terrace bars and cafes.
  • Cafayate has an ideal climate for superb vineyards, producing some of the finest “vino” in South America. Although Malbec is traditionally the country’s main export, Cafayate is famous for Torrontés, Argentina’s most original wine.
  • Cerro de los Siete Colores (Hill of the Seven Colours) in Purmamarca are a natural work of art, and only about a 2hrs 30mins drive away from Salta city. The walking trails are relatively easy, and the views on offer make it worth every step.
