Here you will find most of the ancient pre-Colombian Andes cultures.

San Salvador de Jujuy, short Jujuy, lies north of the city of Salta and near the Bolivian border. Jujuy is the most northern city of Argentina. The population has a mostly Indian heritage.

The city of Salta was founded on 16 April 1582 by the Spanish explorer Hernando de Lerma, as a stop between Lima in Peru and Buenos Aires. Salta is also called ‘La Linda’ that is ‘the beautiful’. It is an attractive city with a lovely climate all year long. Salta is also the place of departure and arrival for the ‘Tren a Las Nubas’ (Train to the clouds). This is a train ride of over 400 km that leads to the ‘clouds’, the highest point is at 4200 m. The ride is almost 15 hours long, and takes the same route on the way back.

At about 200 kilometres south of Salta you will find the town of Cafayete. Although Mendoza is known for it, you will find some of the best wine houses in the country here!

Argentina’s northwest is stunning! Green, densely wooded hills and the closer to the Andes you get the more extreme and dry the landscape gets. You will sometimes encounter bizarre rock formations, like the Cerro de Siete Colores, hill of seven colours.

 

Tip!

Experience the freedom of a rental car...

Argentina’s northwest is a great region to explore in a rental car. We plan the overnight stays for you and you can drive there yourself.
