Northwest Argentina

Extreme landscapes and indigenous cultures

The northwest of Argentina, with the city of Salta, is undoubtedly the most authentic region of the country. The influences of the indigenous pre-Columbian Andes cultures in combination with the special nature ensures an unforgettable tour through Northern Argentina.

With a rental car through pristine landscapes and traditional mountain villages

The most famous city in the north west of Argentina is Salta. The city of Salta was founded on April 16, 1582 by the Spanish explorer Hernando de Lerma. Salta is considered one of the most beautiful cities of Argentina and is also called 'La Linda' or 'the beautiful one'. Salta is a beautiful colonial city with a friendly atmosphere and a wonderful climate all year round. The Plaza de Armas is the central square of the city where a number of good restaurants are located. Visit the cathedral, the San Francisco church and the San Bernardo mountain, from where you have a great view over the city. 
Not only the city, but also the province of Salta in Argentina is very beautiful. The region has beautiful canyon landscapes with multicolored mountains, but also high plains with meters high cacti. A trip through northern Argentina can be done by yourself, with a rental car. Drive past snow-capped volcanoes, high altitude vineyards, gorges and ravines. Visit the villages of Purmamarca and Cachi far away from the major cities. The indigenous people still live here and everything is dominated by Pachamama. We plan the overnight stays for you and you will drive from place to place at your own pace. Along the way you have the freedom to stop wherever you want.
