HIGH ANDES HIKING

Salt flats, volcanoes, coloured montains and andean culture.
Salta & Jujuy - Northwest Argentina

Hike the different natural settings of the Andes, adapting to the altitude increase as we hike the trails of the Yungas cloud forest, the dry valleys and the high Andean plateau called Puna.

A land of contrast, a different landscape on each day is the region’s main feature. Combine history, culture and geology with hiking, comfortable lodging and great food. The Andean heights are the challenge. The diverse landscapes and views are the reward.

Active mornings, box lunch in the mountains, evenings at regional restaurants. Stay at small hotels with a local vibe. Time to explore on your own or relax. All logistics are organized: transport, lodging, guides, snacks, lunches, activities.

Discover trails that have been in use by the Andean communities for hundreds of years. This trip collaborates with local projects.

HIGHLIGHTS

Train to the Clouds, hike on the tracks of one of the highest trains in the world.

Salinas Grandes, manual salt mining.
