The Andean Northwest, Luxury Argentina Holidays
Far away from the elegance of Buenos Aires, one of Argentina's best preserved colonial cities, bustling pretty Salta, founded more than 600 years ago by the Spanish is the main starting point for serious road trips to the subtropical montane forests of El Finca Rey National Park, the Calchaquí Valley and the vineyards and desert canyons of Cafayate.
It is also the starting point for the high-altitude train, Tren a las Nubes - "Train to the Clouds", which has just been re-launched. A 16 hour journey from Salta and back to Salta again.
Five reasons to visit Salta & Jujuy:
1 - Indigenous Culture: Salta’s inhabitants are proud of the survival and persistence of indigenous gaucho people and traditions. Every festival and religious custom reflects this mixture with elements of mestizo and criollo culture, intertwined with Spanish influence.
2 - Colonial Architecture: Salta has preserved many fine examples of colonial architecture
3 - Wine: Visit Cafayate, the wine capital of the north-west. Salta’s high altitude wine is winning acclaim from all over the world.
4 - Scenery: The North Andean region of Argentina has a unique geography and beautiful landscapes. From salt flats and giant cacti to multi coloured mountains and winding rivers, the region has much to offer.
5 - Salta’s Archaeological Museum: offering many fine relics of Inca civilization, including the exceptionally well-preserved bodies of three children who had been killed as part of a ritual sacrifice to Incan deities.
