SALTA AND JUJUY: CALCHAQUÍ VALLEYS AND HUMAHUACA CANYON 

Argentina's North West Region

(4 days / 3 nights)

Visit Humahuaca and Cafayate's gorges, Salta and Jujuy's treasures, their small indigenous towns and their finest wineries. 

A thousand miles northwest of Buenos Aires, the Patagonian rich natural landscape and tango culture of Buenos Aires seem ages away... A different Argentina, far removed from the city's bustle, arises. 

Esoteric landscapes, mesmerizing colors, indigenous customs, ancient ruins and vegetation that varies form desert areas and subtropical jungles, are some of its landmarks. Its unique cuisine owns some of the country's most traditional foods, like "empanadas salteñas" and locro. 

The Calchaquí Valley, in the province of Salta, is best known for its contrast in colours and its unique geography, which ranges from the mountain desert to the subtropical forest. 

There are a number of valleys and rivers in the area, which was once inhabited by a number of tribes. Decades before the Spanish invasion, the natives of these lands suffered the invasion of the Inca Empire. Its ancient heritage can be clearly appreciated, making the Calchaquí Valley a fascinating historic visit.

In the province of Jujuy, the Humahuaca Canyon also offers a unique experience, rich in history and traditions. Filled with architectural and archaeological sites, its population still retains ancient customs.

The Canyon forms a natural corridor that stretches across the Rio Grande basin, communicating the Jujuy Valley with the Puna Region. Due to its mountainous terrain, there are many microclimates. But, generally speaking, it has a dry climate, hot with cold peaks; a desert climate. 

In 2003, UNESCO declared it as a "World Heritage Site" in the category "Cultural Landscapes".
