Full description
The adventure begins at approximately 7:00 AM with pickup from centrally-located hotels in Salta. Guests outside the city center may also choose to meet the group at the Tiamar Tarev Agency Office in central Salta.  

Travel in the comfort of an air-conditioned van and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the National Route 9 on the way to Jujuy province where we visit the Quebrada de Humahuaca, a narrow mountain valley declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003. Stop in Purmamarca and admire the Hill of Seven Colors and its striking red and orange hues before exploring the main square and local craft stands.

Continuing along Route 9, we reach the town of Humahuaca, located at 2,939 meters above sea level. Wander down to the Church of La Candelaria and visit the Independence Monument before enjoying free time for lunch.

After lunch, enjoy 45 minutes of free time to explore Hornocal and its Hill of Fourteen Colors. A visit to the town of Tilcara, one of the oldest continuously inhabited settlements in Argentina, wraps up the tour and the group returns along Route 9 to Salta City.
