After being picked up from your central Salta hotel, meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people, and set off south along Route 68. Keep your camera close to hand as you wind your way through the wild landscapes of the Lerma Valley, along the Río de las Conchas, and into the heart of the Quebrada de las Conchas canyon.
Jump out to admire some of the reservation’s most memorable landmarks, including the imposing Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat) and the aptly nicknamed Anfiteatro (Amphitheater), as your guide explains the region’s unique geology, sculpted over millions of years. Continue to La Punilla, where the unusual rock formations offer ample photo opportunities, and Los Castillos (The Castles), where the striking red rocks are reminiscent of a castle.
Arrive in Cafayate, where you’ll have time to enjoy lunch (own expense) and explore the town, before visiting some of the region’s wineries. Depending on the day, visit one or more of Cafayate’s wineries, and get chance to taste Argentina’s famous Torrontes wine, an aromatic white wine.
After a full day exploring the region’s impressive landscapes, return to Salta, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
