Full description
This three-day tour highlights the Altiplano region of Argentina with its magical landscapes.

Day 1: Salta – Quebrada del Toro – Tolar Grande
Early in the morning you will begin your journey to the Puna, following the path of the Tren a las Nubes, following the famous Quebrada del Toro route. At noon, you will make a quick stop at San Antonio de los Cobres to have lunch. After this small break, you will enter a completely new region full of contrasts: "El Altiplano". Here, time seems to have stopped for good. In the afternoon you will arrive at Tolar Grande, a place imbued with peace and quiet.

Day 2: Cono de Arita – Ojos de Mar
On the second day, venture further into the desert to visiting the giant salt flat Salar de Arizaro and arrive at the Cono de Arita. Along the way, admire the vibrant color palette that changes with the sunlight - this place is guaranteed to leave you breathless. In the afternoon, visit Ojos del Mar, an oasis in the middle of the desert. All this great natural beauty is framed by the Andes Mountain Range, with its highest volcanos such as Llullaillaco, Socompa, Guanaquero – truly an immense and unforgettable landscape.

Day 3: Tolar Grande – San Antonio de los Cobres – Salta
In the morning you will start heading back to Salta. Even though the route is the same as the journey there, it will seem like a completely different place, altered by the sunlight and the morning perspective. At noon, enjoy lunch in San Antonio de los Cobres with some free time to explore before heading back to Salta.
