Itinerary

After picking you up from your hotel at the start of our Quebrada of Humahuaca Tour,  we make our way north though the city to the small area of Vaqueros before continuing on into the beautiful cloud forest known locally as “Las Yungas”. We will meander through the lush green vegetation before dropping down into the area of San Salvador de Jujuy, the second largest city in northern Argentina.
After making our way past the city we will stop for a quick rest before moving on to the Quebrada of Humahuaca. The Humahuaca Ravine is a UNESCO world heritage site due to its Indian roots and cultural wealth.
As we travel throughout the ravine we will have the opportunity to stop at the famous hill of seven colours in Purmamarka and visit the old Inca fortress or “Pucara” in the town of Tilcara.
Our Quebrada of Humahuaca Tour continues as we arrive in the historical town of Humahuaca you will have the chance to walk through is cobbled streets and explore is small plaza and many stalls. An impressive monument to the Independence of Argentina is situated here due to the last battles that we fought during the struggle against the royalists.
Another option on this trip would be to visit the huge “Salinas Grandes” salt flats instead of carrying on up to Humahuaca. Please ask us for more details.
After a casual lunch we will make our way back to Salta through the agricultural areas of the province of Jujuy taking in the vast sugar and soya bean plantations.
The journey to and from the Quebrada of Humahuaca is roughly 6 -7 hours depending on the amount of stops we make.
As always we like stop at various locations to give you a chance to take in the scenery and stretch your legs to break up the journey.
