Among high summits, arid or subtropical valleys, a trip to the Northwest is first and foremost an encounter with Argentina´s pre-Columbian history.
In a natural setting of majestic beauty old colonial villages still flourish. Still intact, they are the stage for popular celebrations and home to the pleasures of country dining and local produce.
The province of Salta, the site of the battle for independence, is the starting point of a tour of the Northwest. We cross the Quebrada de Humahuaca and the charming valleys of Calchaquies. The province of Jujuy, a place proud of its pre-Columbian and colonial cultural patrimony, enchants us with its colorful villages… As for Tucuman, this historic garden of Argentina is a symbol of liberty.
From Santiago del Estero to Tucuman via the thermal waters of Thermas de Río Hondo; from San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca to the ruins of the Quilmes Indians; from Purmamarca to La Quiaca, entry point to Bolivia, the Northwest has all it takes to touch the heart of a traveler.
