When Do You Want To Go?

Great Mountain Scenery, Arid Desert & Huge Red Rock Formations

The Northwest of Argentina is a vast territory that offers an extraordinary range of landscapes, quite different from that in the South. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Andes Mountains, the landscape here consists of arid desert, huge red rock formations, small adobe villages, expansive lagoons and salt flats as far as the eye can see.

The area is steeped in fascinating indigenous history and you can explore several ruins from the ancient civilisations. The culture is still present in the everyday life of the local towns and communities, and the people of this region are amongst some of the friendliest you will ever meet. The area is also famous for wine production and you will find a number of boutique bodegas and wineries to discover along the way. 

The Area

The capital of the region is Salta which is an attractive city steeped in history, heritage and colonial buildings. The compact city is easy to walk around and home to several upmarket cafes, attractive parks and the stunning Salta Cathedral. You can base yourself in the city and take trips to the attractions in the surrounding landscape but to make the most of your time we would recommend hiring a car.

Best Time to Go

Daytime temperatures are generally warm throughout the year reaching highs of 27°C in summer (Nov - Mar). Night time temperatures are pleasant in summer, but can drop to as little as 3°C in winter. Expect some heavy rains from Dec to Feb.
