Full description
Meet your group at the meeting point in Jujuy. From there, take a ride to Purmamarca, a small town at the base of the Seven Colors Hill, a stunning multi-hued mountain. Then, discover Maimará, a small village nestled in the shadow of the Monolith Painter's Palette, a multicolored geological formation made up of stunning red, yellow, orange, and pastel hues.

Next, visit Pucará de Tilcara, a fort built in the 12th century by the Omaguaca tribe, who were later conquered by the Incas. Stop in the sleepy town of Uquía, notable for its historic church boasting paintings of gun-toting angels.

Make your next stop at the Tropic of Cancer, the most southerly latitude at which the sun can appear directly overhead at noon. Head on to Humahuaca and admire the multicolored Quebrada de Humahuaca mountain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This mountainous gorge or "quebrada" runs for nearly 100 miles (155 kilometers) along the Grande River and up into Bolivia.
