You will have the chance along the way to observe a lot of tobacco production. You will enjoy and explore the numerous attractions, such as “The Monk,” “Throat of the Devil,” “The Amphitheatre,” and “The Fortress,” among others, once you are in the “Quebrada de Las Conchas,” created by wind and water erosion.
Then you’ll be going to Cafayate, where you’ll have some free time for lunch. Well known for its vineyards, it is a picturesque village. Then you’ll go on a tour of the vineyard and a walk through the city to visit the craft market.
Then you head back to Salta in the middle of the afternoon, stopping in the middle of the Quebrada de las Conchas along the way to enjoy some local cheese production.
You will be picked up by your guide after breakfast at your hotel, but the journey will really begin once you arrive at Purmamarca Village, where you will have enough time to experience the excitement of the Seven Colored Hill, the square’s church and craft market, and a quick walk along its narrow streets.
Then we will proceed towards the town of Tilcara, where we will visit the ancient ruins of Pucará, the Museum of Archaeology and Huacalera.
Then we can cross the Capricorn Tropic, from where you can see the colors of La Pollera de la Coya Hill and, thanks to the daylight, you can take very nice photos. We will also visit Uquía and its church, where the paintings of the Angels of Arcabuceros (an significant vestige of the Cuzqueña School area) are preserved.
Arriving at noon in Humahuaca, you can discover an important church and the sculptor Soto Avendaño ‘s Independence Monument (Indian).
After lunch, we’ll see the town of Maimara framed by La Paleta del Pintor (Painter’s Palette). We will also continue to San Salvador de Jujuy to see the Hall of the Flag and the Cathedral, distinguished by its wood and gold carved pulpit and Lola Mora statues.
Finally, through National Route 9, surrounded by abundant subtropical vegetation, we can return to Salta.
The final stretch will be Santa Laura’s El Abra, witnessing the dam of La Cienaga (The Swamp), Las Maderas and Campo Alegre and returning via Vaqueros to Salta.
You’ll check out from your hotel in the morning, after breakfast, and have free time before your vehicle comes and gets you to the airport.
