About 2hrs from Salta, Quebrada del Rio de las Conchas is an area on unrivalled beauty with red rock hills that resemble a martian landscape. Unfortunately the famed multi coloured rock layers are only visible in certain sunlight and we went on a grey cloudy...More

An amazing road trip exploring the ancient rock formations. This is a must see if you're in the area. It's possible by bike but much better in a tour with a driver so you can really spend time exploring the different sites.

This is a region to be seen slowly and by car, to observe nature at its best. Take your time, get out of the car, take pictures, admire the beautiful forms of the mountains and also the different colors. I did not expect such beautifulness!

Take stroll down the dry river bed and up around the amazing erosional rock forms. It would be very easy to spend a couple of hours in the area if you are interested in Geology or Geomorphology. A few of the cactus were in flower...More

We are looking to spend somewhere between 4 - 6 days in the Salta region. If we have 6 days we would be able to go to Salta, Cafayate and up to Jujuy and Humahuaca. But if we have only 4 - I think it would be too much to cram in. If having to choose - which area would you choose? Would you head north or south? or are both a 'must do'? thank you.

IMO, you don't really need a tour company, just a sense of adventure. How long are you staying? Rent a car for the freedom to go where you want. Although they are more expensive than the States. Try Cactus Rentals - they... More
